    Spill, I'm actually finishing my 3rd week at UTSW. Guess I need to change that!! So far, I LOVE IT! I couldn't imagine myself doing any other type of nursing!! It's NOT an easy job, but I'm sure just like floor nursing, with repetition, it will all start to flow a little easier. We're still in classroom, but have observed, and helped the nurses a little.


    Good luck to everyone!

    Hey Fun -- when you were in the ER, did you use some form to track things? You know we have those forms we normally use in med/surg (the ones with the vitals, meds and times, dx, allergies ... stuff like that), but they seem like they won't let us keep track of what we need in the ER. I hope you know what forms I am talking about. I cannot seem to think of what they are called, so it makes it hard to try to Google for examples

    We didn't chart. If I did something (BP, etc), I just jotted down the #s in order to not forget them, then gave the information to the nurse verbally.

    I hope everyone is doing well! I'm so glad to see everyone moving on and almost at graduation!!!!

    yin yang- I saw that you have an interview at MCD next week in the ER. That's very exciting! I work up in the ICU just one floor above the ER in the same building. I think the ER here is a great one. It is a level 3 which is far from Parkland's ER, but I don't mind that part. We get ER patients sometimes but I've never officially worked in the ER. The ER Interns I took ACLS with were loving it in the ER. I wish I had more information to give you about the ER. If you have any specific questions, just ask and hopefully I can help you. Good luck with your interview! I got hired October 2nd of last year so it seems like they're doing the interviews around the same time. Let us know how things turn out! Maybe I'll be seeing you around the hallways here

    Katie- how's OB? Are you still working all of the time?

    It's been great. It's hard to believe that we have been RNs for almost a year now.

    I started taking some classes part time at NorthLake again. I am also a TWU student now, but I start taking classes there in January. I am thinking about patho that I need for upper level nursing. So, it's been busy and I feel like a sometime.

    How is your schedule?

    UTSW has partnered with UTA to offer a RN-BSN. I have applied, but will wait until the February 23rd start date. (I'm waiting until I'm there 6 mos for tuition reimbursement. I can't do it otherwise....I HAVE A SENIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL!!! lol) I "REALLYYYYYY" wanted to start Nov 17th, though!!!!


    This is the part that makes it really nice that I finished all my BSN pre-reqs before starting the ADN!
