    Maybe the OP meant TEAS?

    I had to look up what PBDS stood for and found this: http://www.medicalsolutions.com/wp-c...ting-Guide.pdf

    Perhaps that helps?

    Thanks for the responses. The issue we are having, I work in education, is we do a one week (+ more if you count the endless CBL assignments people need to do) orientation each month. In addition to that we were doing a scheduled "off cycle" orientation plus then having the new hire come back for the next monthly orientation. Now it seems we get new hires every single week along with contract employees. This means we are basically orienting every week a group of 1-12 new employees, plus regular orientation, which lately has been 40-70 people, then on top of that doing all the tracking for mandatory CBLs plus education checklists, plus orientation checklists for the floors. So in the end we feel more like an Orientation Department than an Education Department.

    I was just curious as to how many people out there work at facilities that have off-cycle hires. This means you come in as a new employee during an off week, meaning it isn't the regular hospital orientation. If so, do you bring in people every week, every other week? If you do have off cycle hires what is the process for them? Do they start on the floor and then come back for hospital orientation during the normal time? What about contract employees?

    Any details are helpful as I navigate this with my new job.

    Anyone else prepping and taking this in 2014? I am reading over older threads, particularily VickyRN's thread here: http://allnurses.com/nursing-educato...or-408120.html

    Unfortunately most of the links are broken in it, but still great information. I got my letter yesterday so I am going to get the SAE prep when I get back from the beach.

    Double post. Where did the delete option go?

    At the facility I am working at we do HeartCode through the American Heart Association. Both BLS and ACLS are done online and then employees come into education and check-off on the automated mannequin system. The best thing to do however is to check with your facility. For ours we won't accept anything from an organization other than the AHA.

    I am looking for some ideas on how to streamline competency check offs where I work as an educator. I am pretty sure the current system isn't the most efficient or user friendly. If anyone wouldn't mind a brief outline of their annual checkoff system, I would appreciate it.

    Meanwhile I will be staring at my screen trying to brainstorm.

    Oops I already said that a long time ago. Carry on, nothing to see here.

    Quote from realnursealso/LPN
    We had one hospital in Syracuse, that had magnet status, they have since lost the certification. They continue to have heart surgeons that are well known, and it's the hospital my parents go to if the need arises. No difference when they had it, or now.
    That is because Magnet is recognition for nursing excellence. It takes time to change culture after it is lost, but it will change.

    I have my MSN-Ed and I am returning to the bedside. While I plan to move on to new graduate education, my expertise will be beneficial to not only my patients, but to my floor as well.

    Now I won't lie and say I tried for the floor first after school, but after three years at home with school/children I am slightly removed from bedside to teach clinical and I have no formal academic teaching experience yet.

    To be honest I feel having MSNs on the floor is awesome, because nursing is an evolving career and many levels of education can facilitate change.

    No matter your gender, being a minority (male in a female dominated workplace), or station in life, NO ONE deserves to be made uncomfortable at work. Report the secretary and call out the others.

    In the last year and countless applications for jobs I have gotten a total of two rejection emails and one call from a job I actually interviewed for.

    I haven't blanked on a knowledge question, but I did completely lock up in an educator interview with HR last year. She asked me what parts of my MSN were specific to teaching people. Because our classes were mostly advanced theory, pharm, assessment, and management I didn't know what to say! I couldn't list techniques or anything. Unfortunately I did not get the job, but I also had been off the floor for two years with my children and didn't have any formal educator role experience. What did you blank on?
