I recently started a new job working part time. I'll skip the details, but basically, it's not going to work out for me to stay here. I feel bad to be planning on leaving so soon, and would feel a bit better if we can guesstimate that I've "worked off" the cost of my orientation.
So that brings me to my question: is there any sort of algorithm for breaking even on orientation costs versus the value of my labor? Like, x days orientation breaks even in y weeks? Read
I love this one. This is one of my favorite!

This past weekend I had two shifts back to back and I was DETERMINED to become vastly more independent. I was pulling meds without my preceptor, passing them mostly without her, charting on my own and doing a really good job with keeping up with the routine of things. She remarked early in the shift how shocked she was at how quickly I was improving and coming along. Then yesterday around the middle of the shift things started to spiral out of control. I got overwhelmed and panicky... Read
I'm a new grad. I just realized I forgot to sign off on a 0600 hr g-feed that I gave. I just phoned and spoke with the nurse who came on after me and asked her if she could just put my initials beside it for me on the MAR. She said ok, but what I am wondering is if this is common practice? would you do it for someone else? She knew I gave it because the pt vommited up the feed and I stayed to clean it before I left...I just don't want to get in trouble for asking someone to do something that they shouldn't have to do.

I need advice. I am a RN with 2 years of experience. My speciality is cardiac although I have med surg experience as well. Ever since I graduated from school with my BSN in 2010, I have had this love/hate relationship with nursing. I will start with my first job... Read
Why are so many graduate programs still offering masters degrees in their nurse practitioner programs? Shouldn't they be switching to doctorates? Are they planning to graduate a bunch of nurse practitioners starting in 2015 who can't actually be licensed, and must go back to school for a separate DNP? Read

I feel like a true failure. I went to school and struggled to become a Women's Health/Adult Health NP. I did everything right (I thought). 2 yrs post graduate degree and I am not working as a NP. I believe I have some experience under my belt. HOW DO I BREAK BACK IN TO THE JOB MARKET? Read
I am a new grad from the Bay Area. I have put in over 30 job applications: Northern CA, Southern CA, Idaho, Minnesota, Washington, and Arkansas. I have been offered a job in Arkansas on an inpatient Oncology Unit. Granted, I have family there, which would ease the transition tremendously, but my family has grave concerns about this being a potential issue in the future, so now I'm wondering if, after a year or two, I decide that I want to try and move back to CA, will experience as an RN in Arkansas hinder, or help me?
