No such thing as "abuse" of your paid time off. You're not an abuser if you don't want to see a doctor.
Take care of yourself.
If your physical or mental condition prevents you from performing your job duties, then it is appropriate to call out sick. However, just as you would consult a healthcare provider for a physical illness, it is your responsibility to seek appropriate care for your mental health. If you fail to do so, you are just taking time off, which is an abuse of your sick time.
Please accept my answer in the spirit it is intended: as a practical response, not a harsh one.
It doesn't matter a whit which rotation you do first. Not a single patient, faculty member or future employer will ever ask or care. Please don't stress yourself out over this non-issue, when there are so many real concerns in life.
Good luck to you.
It sounds to me like neither the family nor agency are bothering to address a problem that is not yours.
I have worked NICU in a number of different cities and was responsible for planning discharges. That often involved setting up homecare, including equipment and staffing. I don't ever recall a situation where we were unable to make arrangements in advance for designated parking, coordination with EMS, and guarantee of utility service for families with medically fragile children.
If this isn't happening, I believe it is because someone isn't bothering to request it.
You need to contact the MD BON to clarify their requirement.
Does the practice requirement begin upon graduation or upon receiving your initial license? Since you just passed NCLEX and received your first license, the continuing practice requirement may just be beginning, in which case you would be eligible for a MD license, providing everything else is in order.
Or do they go back to your graduation date and begin the continuing practice requirement then, in which case, although your license is new, you have not met the requirement.
If MD says that you do not meet the continuing practice requirement, you can either take a refresher course, or find a state in which you are eligible to practice and get 1000 hours under your belt before moving to MD.
If long 'press on finger nails' are required to complete your professional ensemble and paramount to your emotional well being, you might want to consider becoming a Medical Aesthetician. It would give you a great opportunity to work with patients, in a medical environment, who could benefit from your keen sense of style and fashion while allowing you to maintain your jazzy appearance.
You left the workforce to attend to personal and family matters and are now eager to return. Best of luck to you!
Sure - my son is planning to go out of state which increases our cost. Even at 45K per year plus books and miscellaneous expenses that comes to 180K which is roughly in the mid range of what I stated. Thankfully the man cub is an exceptionally gifted athlete so we may attract some scholarship funds. I have attached one of the basic sources I used to back up my statements.
What's the Price Tag for a College Education? - COLLEGEdata - Pay Your Way
Well, I am researching colleges with my son who will be heading off in 2020 or 2021 and have found that the average college tuition for a BA/BS in the United States is somewhere between $100,000.00 and $250,000.00. I would say $80.000.00 is a bargain if you are getting a degree from a fully accredited College or University. If however you are going to a for profit private nursing school beware as some of your BSN credits may not transfer if you choose to move forward and earn your MSN or higher.
Houseplant, bouquet of cut flowers, home made cookies or brownies, a recipe mix in a Mason jar, hand cream, foot soak (you can home-make this in a Mason jar, too), a small journal or pretty calendar book, scented candle, coffee mug, nice hand soap, etc.
Basically, any small luxury that s/he might not take the time or money to buy her/himself. Thanks for being thoughtful
I was oriented to my second nursing job by a nurse who had submitted her resignation. By the end of the first shift, I was enlightened on all of the internal problems of the unit and the hospital. She was 100% right about everything but those are not details that need to be shared with a wide-eyed newbie. With this information to jump start my career, I quit not long after orientation.
Working the "notice" period can be undeniably awkward, but rarely have I known co-workers to mistreat a departing staff member. I have known a handful of people who called out on their last day and missed their own parties. Served them right.
This sounds a lot like home health nurses who set up weekly meds for clients to self administer or family to give at home. I don't think it amounts to dispensing, but I guess your BON should answer that.
To my knowledge, no. My daughter attends school out of state and we asked about this before she moved, because she takes a number of prescription medications. As long as your state pharmacy board allows scripts from out of state prescribers to be filled (and hers does), I don't believe there is any legal restriction on school personnel administering them.
As a practical matter, her local doctor asked us to find a physician near her school to co-manage her care in the event that she has a change in condition, because she is halfway across the country and will only be home over holidays, but the new physician has not re-written any of her prescriptions. She is utilizing refills from the original RXs written by her doctor at home.
If anyone here would like a good perspective on the categorization of psychiatric meds and the attached stigma, I highly recommend reading "A Spectrum Approach to Mood Disorders" by James Phelps, MD.
He also maintains a website with much of the same information. I wish I had been introduced to these concepts years ago.
