(sorry, it's been a long weekend!) #5 3, sep 19, '10 by bushambo, in Australia, members of the Royal College of Nursing get a huge range of discounts, generally 15 off cars, houses travel insurance clothing etc.
Cell phones for nurses?I rarely turn.Admission is free on your birthday.It's usually not widely advertised, but it you're on the mailing list, you always get a notice.Or what of some pervert starts stalking you via text messages?Also, I can change my plan at any time or cancel it altogether if I ever want.I generally love the clothes at NY C and already have T-Mobile service.I'm going to act on this tidbit today.Comment 1 2 Next » Must Read Topics Visit Our Sponsors Advertise With.It is still pay-as-you-go, simply because I dont like contracts.I can still recall years ago when pagers were the big thing.
Anyway, I can see how cell phones and smart phones will quickly become the norm in the healthcare industry.
I would get the most bizarre socal water rebate turf looks when I said that, as if I lived in the 1950s or something!
After spending nearly an hour on the phone with T-Mobile, they do *not* offer a discount for nurses, but rather through specific employers or a few state nursing associations (New Mexico is the only one I can remember right now).And this was only 1-2 years after graduating nursing school.In fact, I remember a very serious case in the area I live where some people in a nursing home were abusing elderly patients, and people were recording it with their cell phones.One of the most interesting shifts Ive seen in my career is the widespread use of cell phones, smart phones, blackberries, and iPhones.Id always respond, Well, I only have a prepaid phone that I use for emergencies.In fact, I rarely see anyone with a pager these days.
