Definitely especially when you consider the mind boggling scope of our job. Also meager raises

Mind boggling scope of practice? Most can't even cannulate or gain any vascular access.. can't intubate, can't administer or prescribe medications autonomously, can't diagnose, can't read ECGs or perform many procedures. Most work in a comfortable environment with an abundance of resources and specialists around every corner to dictate what needs to be done. Hardly a mind boggling scope.. very limited.

Absolutely! Nurses do so much and it seems as when things, people, or process are cut, it’s added to the nurses job. We provide patient care, family care, mentor to new employees, housekeeping, unit clerk, food service and so much more.

Traveling nurses aren’t. Regular RNs yes.

I’m a traveling nurse recruiter and I can certainly say that travel nurses are making A LOT of money these days.

Yep. I’m an LVN and just got a new offer. I’m getting payed 34% more.

Yes

10000%

Yes.

Yes. And I believe this should not be a question. We are underpaid and overworked.

Hey fishes,

I currently work on SAP ABAP, 2.5YoE
I am a bit skeptical about the future growth and scope.

Based on my research i see most ABAPers with 5-7 YoE being paid around 12-17 lpa. (This is based on data from people i talked to in similar roles).

I'm a bit confused whether ABAP would be a good career option or should i try switching to Java Spring or Big data.

What are your views about ABAP opportunities compared to other tech stacks.
