I have a question about the temporary collaborative agreement in Alabama. When you do receive your temp, can you sign things without your precepting NP? And can you sign as CRNP?
Another thing, this has nothing to do with cell phones but it does with students. I just recently started taking students and new employees to precept. Well, during the fall I had a nursing student who seemed like she had the initiative to learn, during the first two times she was there. After that, she became incredibly lazy and wouldn't do what she was supposed to do. One particular morning, she was giving report to the oncoming nurse. During report, we usually go over the medications and the dosages and times. Well, she told the oncoming nurse the medication and time but forgot the dosage. The oncoming nurse asked what the dosage was and the student replied (very nasty if I may add) It's on the sheet, you can find it for yourself! What nerve!! I would never have done anything like that when I was a student. I wanted to make a good impression!
It embarasses me when I am at work and a co-worker has a cell phone in their pocket and it rings and they actually answer it. It makes me feel like our nurses aren't professional and do not know how to be professional! How embarassing! I have made comments before to other nurses about them having their cell phones in the unit - like geez, you couldn't get that off your hip for one second could ya? You know, just kidding around thinking that maybe they'd get the hint. But, no! I also can't stand it when I'm working my tail end off and there's a co-worker talking on the phone to a friend about what's going on during the upcoming weekend - and doesn't even ask if they can help. I can't stand lazy people!
When I graduated nursing school, I thought I would never want to work night shift but my best friend worked night shift and I wanted to be on "her" schedule so we could hang out more. Well, 3 years later, my body has begun to deteriorate!! I am so ready to go to day shift. I work 3 12 hour shifts a week and it's tough going back and forth between sleeping during the day and sleeping at night.
It is possible to work dayshift as a new nurse. Don't feel like you must work night shift in order to pay your dues. It's not a requirement. Some people just aren't night owls. I hope you are able to find a dayshift, you should have no problem. My unit has a 2 year waiting list for the dayshift!
Hey guys! I am in the process of trying to find a company to go with in order to travel. This is the biggest headache of them all. Does anyone have any company that they worked with that they were just thrilled with? Are there any companies that I need to stay away from? I am a NICU nurse and that's limiting where I can go - there's not many NICU travel jobs out there! I want a company that is going to pay me well, give me housing/or a stipend for housing, provide me with good health and dental insurance, travel expense reimbursement, and also be there when I need them if something goes wrong. I would really appreciate any information I can get on this subject!
I am getting ready to travel. I am working on getting my license in several different states but have a dilemma. I got a DUI back in June but it was dismissed when I went to court. Do I still need to report this on my applications to the different state BON's? I'm terrified that if I don't report it that it will show up on a background check and then I'm screwed.
I have nothing against male nurses - I love them!!! I wish there were more of them, especially ones that are single and hot!! LOL I bet that if they would have put just his name there, no one would have realized who he was. I think it was just easier for them to put 'male nurse' in the credits. I'm sure if it was a female, they wouldn't have used her name in the movie. It probably would have said nurse #1, etc, etc. Sorry if your feelings were hurt, but don't let it bother you!!
Hi I am a 26 year old and have been a nurse for almost 3 years now. I just got a DUI a couple of days ago. I am really worried about my nursing license. This is my first offense ever. I haven't ever been in trouble before and need some advice on what to do next. Do I contact the ABN and let them know now or do I tell them when it is time to renew? Please help!! Is there anyone out there on this message board who has had a DUI in alabama and how did it go as far as your present employer? What kind of fines did you have to pay? I have heard that you can do classes to help but what kind of classes, how much are they, and how often do they meet?
