- Sep 25, '12 by ColleenRN2BNot being snobby. Pointing out to that poster that there ARE HH agencies that hire new grads. Also, I wasn't the one with the insulin injection question. I DID learn it in school and managed to retain it as well.
Quote from itsnoworneverNo need to be snobby. But really, what did you learn in school? Insulin is one of the first thing we learned and did. You check the sugar, find the sliding scale, figure out when they need to eat or if they already did and give the shot or hold as ordered.
- Feb 22 by katherine100Wow. YOu have never done an injection? What did you do for your nursing rotations?
- Feb 23 by paradiseboundRNYou are expected to know basic clinical skills like injections but if you have any questions, you can always ask your clinical supervisor about it. They are expected to pay for training/seminars/skill fairs for more difficult things like NPWT (wound vac) or PleurX, but it should take less than 5 minutes to teach even a new grad how to give an insulin injection.
- Feb 23 by katherine100Yes basic skills are taught during clinicals. A shame this was not the case for the OP.
