I'm a relatively new grad - my entire experience, even before LPN, was in emergency.
Now I'm an RN who is an Emergency nurse for a very large state prison. I've lived the past six months dealing with hangings, overdoses, shankings, fights, heart attacks, and seizures.
A few encounters recently left me feeling very unsafe at the prison (more so than usual) and I don't do IVs or administer meds there either, so I'm making the move back out.
Surprisingly, I got a call for an interview in a hospital for a FT RN on a busy renal floor.
I'm reviewing my old books to catch back up on renal, but it's a little overwhelming - the interview is bright and early on Monday.
What are the important parts to study up on before my interview? If you were going to precept me, what would you hope I was already informed of when I came on? I'm excellent at pathophys and emergencies, but I'm interested in what you encounter day to day.
