    I started out on nights. It's a big adjustment mentally with those hours. But in all honesty it's a perfect shift to learn without being overwhelmed by all the day hustle and bustle. You'll do great. Good luck!

    Same. Mannequin for IVs. Oranges for injections. I think there is nothing like someone's actual arm for an IV start though. The mannequins are just not realistic enough. I think as long as everyone is consented it should be allowed. Wonder why not? Is there some type of liability against it?

    When I first started nursing as a New grad in Austin that's what I was offered. 22/Hr granted that was 7 years ago. I haven't been put to Tyler in a very long time but from what I remember it was a small town.

    Seems to be a hot button for nurses in general, and pulls them in from the general site.[/QUOTE]

    Darn right this is a hot topic. At least for me it is. I get highly offended/annoyed when MAs get called nurses. Happens on a daily basis and it seems to be happening a lot from doctors!! I worked insanely hard to get my degree and would appreciate it if other people in the medical profession recognized that. I'm not saying I don't value my MAs. Would just be nice if the general public and others would notice the difference. One of the hospitals here have gone to color coding the staff so that the patient could be able to tell the nurse from the housekeeper and so on.

    What crime are you talking about?

    If it had nothing to do with you then maybe you could write an email to the manager and explain the situation. Perhaps even get a letter from the cops who interviewed you.

    I mix the biologics to be infused to our patients. I use dosage calculations on a daily basis!!!!!! We have a new nurse in our department who has a hard time figuring out how to get 25mg of Benadryl out of 50mg vial......... Yeah kinda scary right.

    I work at an outpatient clinic infusion room and we do not use bio patches on our ports. Perhaps it's because they are literally in and out?? Though when I worked at a hospital I do not remember using them there either. I really only see them on PICC lines. I'm trying to visualize anyhow how it would work on a port and can't seem to picture it.

    I agree apply to both places. I did my ADN first. It was a very loooonnnnggggg wait to get in. I did all my non-nursing classes that were required to graduate first while I was waiting to get into the program. Then once I was accepted in all I had to worry about were the nursing courses!

    I later went back to school and got my BSN online while I was working. It was great!
