What I've Been Up To

NOTE: It's been a long time since I've written here, since much of my time is currently spent doing some data entry and support for an ecommerce marketing company.

I've long since learned the basics of nursing.

I know the routines and the technicalities of patient care:
  • Taking vitals
  • Making beds
  • Dealing with medication
  • Etc.
Much of my thoughts regarding nursing these days has more to do with the 'soft' side of the profession:
  • How I deal with patients
  • How I deal with patients families
  • How to do a better job of care, and the tasks at hand.
Still, I think a lot about nursing school.

Part of that comes from reading a forum on Reddit about nursing school students.

One article brought me back:

Hopefully this will re-invigorate my desire to keep doing this nursing blog.

Time will tell!

Retired from nursing? Create an information product to 'cash in' your experience & expertise!

If you've been - or still are - a nurse, why not take all that knowledge and first-hand experience and turn it into information products?

It's not terribly hard to create a guide, a course, a short report, even an email newsletter simply talking about what you've done, and how you've done it.

The market for info-products is huge, and there are thousands upon thousands of people eager to hear what you have to say, learn what you know, and benefit from your experience.

Creating digital information products isn't hard, it's something you can do in your spare time, and can reward you with a nice side income.

You've devoted a lot of time, energy, and resources to learn what you've learned, and to do what you've done.

Why not share that with others - many of whom would happily pay you for the information?

Crazy, but still here!

Yep, it's crazy, but this thing is STILL here. I think the first posts date back earlier than 2010 - a lifetime in this business.

Nursing school remains one of the best avenues to a decent-paying job, and not just a "J.O.B." but a career in the ever-booming health care field.

If you aren't sure, aren't ready, don't have the time, or the money just yet, consider becoming a CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant.

CNA is a great stepping-stone to nursing: it's fast, easy, pays well, is always in demand, and gives you both real-world experience, and a leg up on what it takes, and what's involved, with becoming a nurse.

Well! It's been a long, long time since I've posted here.

At the moment, I'm working on a directory site in the cosmetic dentistry health niche - not so much nursing these days.

The site lists dentists and practices that specialize in doing implant procedures.

Initially, the site provides directory listings in the Southeast US for states including Florida, Alabama, Georgia, and Louisiana.

Right now, there are listings for dentists receiving good reviews, offering dental implant procedures as their specialty.

Yes - a New Post!

It's been quite a while since we posted to the blog here; one reason: we sold the "Nursing Schools" main website!

As a niche topic for a blog or website, nursing in general is a terrific niche. Nursing school, an obvious prerequisite to become licensed, meets all the criteria for an ideal subject: high search volume, high value, not overly competitive.

When we first developed the main site, we'd been working with keywords and topics in the health care field: nursing, home health care, various medical specialties. We'd launched one of our most successful sites of it's kind, "CNA Training Classes". In fact, it was the keyword research done for "CNA Training" that uncovered the nursing opportunity.

As the guy doing the research, I had no idea there was so much traffic for the topic; in fact, I hadn't even know what a Certified Nursing Assistant was! Still, the fundamentals were excellent, everything clicked, and that site went from zero, just registered, to over $100/day in just over 90 days. It went on to reach $400/day shortly after 6 months. All earning was from Adsense, which offered a lot for medical and health care keywords.

We took all that experience and turned it into an internet training course. Check it out if you get a chance! We just recently began a series or case-study on lead generation. Instead of healthcare, we chose a finance topic, retirement and how to get money from your pension. The case-study site is Sell my pension.

Hopefully, we'll resurrect this blog at this point, and so there won't be quite so much time until the next post!

The Registered Nurse Salary Is Increasing The Demand For More Nursing Schools

by Josephine Eagen

Being one of the most sought after professions, the registered nurse salary is considerable, read on to learn why.

The median expected salary for a typical staff nurse RN in the United States is $62,527. This basic market pricing report was prepared using our Certified Compensation Professionals' analysis found at Salary.com of survey data collected from thousands of HR departments at employers of all sizes, industries and geographies.

The fact is that by the end of year 2020, there will be a shortage of approximately 800,000 nurses. You can very well imagine the amount of nursing job possibilities nowadays. In the event you enroll in any nursing program right now then by the end of 2020, you will be enjoying the rewards of a extremely rewarding career, not to mention the registered nurse salary.

The demand for nurses has skyrocketed, but why? One of the primary reasons is that the overall average life span of men and women across the earth has increased, so there will be much more dependency on healthcare. Opportunities will open up due to the need for specialized care for this older population. A lot more hospitals suggests that more nursing positions will be necessary and this signifies nursing jobs will grow multi-fold. The registered nurse salary climbs in part because of this. And finally, since the number of nursing graduates isn't keeping pace with the retirement of current nurses, the registered nurse salary continues to climb skyward.

Currently, you will find over 100,000 vacancies for nursing professionals available in the US, and this is growing, and so is the registered nurse salary. There is a constant need for nursing professionals, healthcare workers, healthcare specialists etc. And easy supply and demand indicates the registered nurse salary continues to grow along with just about every other medical profession.

So only by getting accepted in an accredited nursing course can you enjoy the benefits of a great registered nurse salary. You will discover a lot more information regarding the registered nurse salary plus the nursing possibilities available in the future at the U.S. Department of Labor's Statistics on Registered Nurses.

Due to the increasing requirement for qualified nurses, some of the hospitals in the U.S. have started to offer signing bonuses in addition for the registered nurse salary, which are as much as $14,000 for a registered nurse (RN). A Gallup Poll showed that a majority of the population thought very highly of the nursing profession and that they displayed higher ethical standards than almost any other profession.

Nurses have a reputation to uphold, in addition to the ethical and professional standards set by each individual hospital they may work at. So as you can see, because of all of this the registered nurse salary as it stands now higher than the national average, and it will only continue to grow.
