  2. Just new started job but received better offer?

    Thanks! I am in the Philadelphia area but have nursing licenses for PA,NJ, NY, and NJ.Traveling for an hour and a half isn’t a problem for me(although if gas is $10/hour it will be) It just seems that each time I start a job, something better...
  3. So after making a thread here on crappy health benefits, I found a job that pays more and has cheaper but better benefits than the job I just started on March 2. The one with better benefits is waiting for me to accept the offer. Would it ...

  10. I Want Decent Health Benefits! Is That Too Much to Ask?

    No you are not pro rated for the number of kids you have. It’s the same whether two or eight. I will say with this plan an employee plus one child is slightly less than an employee plus children
  11. Any RN and/or BSN nurses here in private duty?

    To be fair, for most nurses that work in hospitals and LTC, the skills needed in homecare Pdn are different. Most nurses in both settings don’t work with trachs or ventilators. I was at a rehab center for seven months and could tell you the numb...
  12. I Want Decent Health Benefits! Is That Too Much to Ask?

    I am noticing this more and more. Salaries went up,health benefits are stripped to the bare bones. I won't even mention pension plans.
  13. I Want Decent Health Benefits! Is That Too Much to Ask?

    Are you saying my problem is having children and not the cost of health insurance?

  15. It seems to be a great time to be a nurse right now. All of the opportunities presented seem endless! But why does it seem like employers do not want to offer decent health insurance AND decent pay? I just left a job that basically had no i...
