Anyone work on a lung/liver transplant unit?

  1. I'm a new grad and landed my first job on a liver/lung transplant unit. Any tips? I will have 10 weeks orientation. The closer I get to my start date, the more nervous I become. lol I did get to shadow for 3 hours, I asked as many questions as I could but OMG it was total chaos on the unit with so many Teams walking through. ratio is 3-4:1.

    Small world. I'll be starting on silver 11 in a few weeks and just wanted to touch base with seasoned nurses about the population!!

    Right!! That floor isn't too bad, I will be going per diem to finish up my last semester so I am being moved to Ravdin. What shift are you on?

    I only have my orientation schedule as of right now. I'll be 50/50 day/night and every 3rd weekend but that's all I know right now. What school?

    It was tough but the pass rate was high which kept up my motivation, these instructors knew what they were talking about and supported us. I passed with 75 questions in 75 minutes!

    Wow! Our pass rate is not that high so I'm kid of nervous about it...I was actually looking into transferring to Neumann but I figured it would make more since to stay where I'm at

    If you are almost done then stick it out and I highly suggest getting uworld to study for the nclex. It's great!!!
