Part One: Yes, I am talking to YOU

Do you consider yourself a good nurse, or put another way, would you want your family taken care of by someone just like you? Do you feel comfortable teaching new nurses

    Excellent blog Alice. Yes, many of us are terrified at the thought of testifying , but you are right, we all know what is right and what is wrong and we surely can speak to that.

    Well in North Carolina the starting nurse pay is $ 18 and most nusers that I work with do work 3 twelve hour shifts. The shifts are also self-scheduling. There is a shift differential if you work after 3pm. Part time nusers have the same hourly rate but if you were to work PRN or flex you get paid more. The downside to that is that you have no benefits and you have no home department. You get moved wherever you are needed. Hope this helps!!
