    Acute Dialysis Pay

    It truly depends on how your offer is set up. Make sure the recruiter knows that you want that. For some candidates, experienced or sold themselves well or particular work group (company group of coverage).
  2. I think SB wants the attention, or is a troll with lots of time on their hands for made up scenarios
  3. Anyone who uses the Do Not Disturb feature on their phones has a super secret bat phone number. Thought that you knew! I got rid of the bat phone, and just made a "let through" list. Cheaper to maintain

    Managers, Nurses and Delegation: Who Has Authority?

    Must be hands on, as SB only likes doing paperwork

    Non Clinical Positions For New Grads

    Lordy, I hope so, but we both know that there have been some really odd things posted on here lately. I wouldn't be a bit shocked

    Hardest Thing to Learn

    You can sedate it though ?? Hardest lesson:;For me, it was separating working relationships from my personal. I no longer socialize with coworkers. I'm friendly, but professional, and need that separation to keep myself fresh. I've found that if I hang out with work chums, all we talk about is work, and this just adds to the feelings of 28 years that are not the same as my feelings when I began years ago. I surround myself with people who share my other interests

    Non Clinical Positions For New Grads

    I couldn't figure out if the poster was being a smart aleck or is ignorant ???♀?
  8. I've done MDS, and most require experience. Also, because of care plan meetings and family meetings d/t CMS, you are required to be there for those. MDS isn't an easy job to learn, if you miss one thing, you lose $$$, and generally can't go back to recapture

    New RN Grad advice

    Try dialysis. No nurse that I've worked with has ever had trouble transitioning to a hospital bedside role if they want. Experience is experience. You can also be working on your BSN if your local hospitals require it
  10. Then why even start this thread? Please don't answer. This was strictly rhetorical

    Getting Flack For Not Getting Covid Vaccine

    I served in the military to keep this country free. I have seen countries that do not afford their residents that luxury.. Of course we have rules or there would be anarchy. At the end of the day, I choose what activities I want to do, what I wish to eat, where I want to live, as long as I have the means to provide my aspirations. Not every country allows that either Again, bullying is NEVER okay, EVER. Many on here have agreed with the exact same sentiment, even if we feel that the vax was right for us. If you think bullying is okay, then never complain that you or a loved one is being bullied. You said that it's okay. Also, I pray for your patients if you feel it's okay to bully. By your own statements, you sound judgmental at best, dangerous at worst. Have a blessed day, and take your bullying elsewhere; I'm not interested

    Getting Flack For Not Getting Covid Vaccine

    Exactly. We don't oppress those that are antivaxxers now. We just acknowledge their difference of opinion.

    Getting Flack For Not Getting Covid Vaccine

    I understand fine. Apparently you don't understand free will, nor the fact that the vaccine isn't mandatory. So while you are entitled to your opinion, you are not entitled to tell others what they have to do regarding the vaccine. We are lucky to live in a country that allows freedom of choice

    Getting Flack For Not Getting Covid Vaccine

    You are talking about policies and procedures in a psych medical setting vs the bullying a free thinking adult. Again, bullying is wrong on so many levels, I don't really care how you try to justify it. You can't. Others have pointed out that the CDC is in agreement with not forcing vaccines. I have started my series, but will not belittle anyone else for whatever choice they make.
  15. See my above reply
  16. A call from staff to the DON would be appropriate. It sounds like the DON needs to make a call schedule with all nursing management type positions--except possibly MDS, unless there is more than 1 MDS person in your facility--taking a place in the rotation, DON included. This way it's fairly distributed. And everyone gets a feel for who's got a handle on things and who doesn't. I would suggest it, then insist upon it
