Every family has health concerns and you want access to the best care available. You want to make sure that you are well prepared for any health concerns that may arise. Some consumers might not realize that different benefit plan options exist for them in additional to traditional health insurance. One option is a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) – an employer-sponsored benefit add-on that allows employees to set aside pre-tax money for qualified health expenses.
As the world changes, there will be an increased need for nurses. Many men shy away from joining the nursing profession due to gender stereotypes. According to the latest statistics, of all of the nurses currently on the job, only 5.8% are men. This means that more than 94% of nurses are women.
The economy is one in which male nurses can have a promising career. Over 700,000 jobs in the industry will be available in the next few years. Men typically earn more than $1,100 per week which is a competitive starting salary in today’s job market.
Depending on your role as a nurse, there are usually several ways you can be reimbursed for the care you perform. For most of us, there are two basic forms of compensation: hourly and salaried. The benefits and detriments of both are varied. However, it is interesting to take a look at differences because you may just find the grass may be greener on the other side.
In 2012 “Nurse” was number 1 in U.S. News Best Jobs of 2012. Nursing is ranked number 1 for new jobs between 2010-2020. In a rocky economy, a career with steady rise of available positions is always attractive. My personal favorite reason why nursing is #1 is that nursing has consistently been ranked as number 1 in honesty and ethical standards by Gallop poll for the past 11 years. I appreciate a profession that’s trustworthy and honest.
Those who have a strong passion for people often look for ways in which they can extend this into other aspects of their life. While it may seem impossible, it’s actually not nearly as difficult to turn a passion for people into a rewarding lifestyle as most people think it is. There’s nothing more important than working a job that you truly feel is important, and many people find that helping others is the best way to go about doing this. Turning a passion for people into an actual career can be very rewarding, and can actually lead to a rather comfortable lifestyle.
It’s interesting to note that the dissatisfaction among nurses does not stem form the labor of nursing itself, but rather the politics involved with working in healthcare. “
Nurses cited compensation, growth opportunities, and workplace culture as the three things they are most dissatisfied with.
“Nurses . . . have more issues with the culture of their workplaces, the people they work with and the person they work for,” Golledge says. “The factors driving the unhappiness tell different stories for these two jobs.”
Just a few short days ago, Amazon had an open letter to their customers discussing the Amazon Career Choice Program. It’s really uplifting to hear of a company that supports their employees by more than jus giving them a paycheck. There is more to a job than just getting a paycheck. In order to be truly happy at your work, you must be fulfilled.
