With over 3 million nurses in the United States it’s not surprising to hear about ways they practice nursing that are a little less traditional. Nurses are becoming authors at an increasing rate and bringing quality content to a growing library of books written for nurses. It’s not surprising that the best nursing books are written by men and women who have actually practice nursing and can identify with other nurses.And these nurse author aren’t just writing text books or “how to” guides for nurses. The are writing compelling stories of the drama they face everyday on the floor. They are writing powerful tales that nurses can identify with. They are telling the untold stories of patient care.
Recently I posted about the pros and cons working as a salaried nurse verses hourly. Kevin Ross, of Innovative Nurse, has responded in a youtube video but has shifted the focus of the discussion to the wages of nurses in general. So let’s continue the conversation.
Kevin is a nurse consultant and was surprised after a discussion with another nurse hen he learned what the average pay for nurses is currently. And let me be completely honest when I say that I think nurses are reimburses well, compared to many other jobs I’ve done, but there is always room for improvement.
This is a great opportunity for you creative nurses out there.
