Teaching Non-Violent communications skills is VERY helpful to assist patients in gaining skills with expressing feelings, thoughts, and needs in a healthy manner without posing a risk of upsetting others!
All the best in your rotation!
Hello to you,
Does the Michigan BON have an impaired professionals program? Our State does and the program assists you in getting documenation/monitoring together so that you eventually will be granted more priviledges in the future.
What about checking out agency nursing? They are the only people who have a need to know what your restrictions are, not the client.
Regardless of what you look at for opportunities, put in as many applications in every place you can think of. Remain up front and honest. If you continue to work at it something will evenually turn up. DON'T GIVE UP!
Work with the BON on this. They are the only people who can advise you at this point. You can ask them if there is anything you can do to help this along. Good luck to you!
You could check out gift ideas for nurses at caffepress.com. They have humorous gifts and may give you some ideas.
Where is this, "Nursing Licensure with a criminal history" forum found?
Don't give up! Find out from the BON and NCLEX what it is that you need to do. You have worked too hard to go through nursing school and you shouldn't give that up lightly. You should also consider contacting an attorney who can advice you, or, give you some sort of direction. I agree with LLG, you may experience difficulty finding some jobs that your background could be considered substancially related to the job critera. But, with that being said, there are many areas of nursing to explore (that don't involve direct care). So become proactive and find out what hoops you have to go through!
The best of luck to you!
Congratulations! You bet you can't be too picky about nursing jobs these days!
you can check out this web site for that inofrmation swz.salary.com. good luck to you!
Hello to all of you in PHN!
I have been blessed with having an interview for a position (YEAH!) and am in need of some help. I do have a background in L/D, postpartum, and newborn nursery, but not directly in publlic health.
I will be returning to grad school soon to work toward my DNP in public heath, but need some ideas about areas to brush up on, or, possible interview questions that may be asked.
Thanking everyone in advance!
Are you referring to my post?
Wow...how sad. Our State allows the abuse to be reported well after an individual turns 18, but after the statute of limitations is met there is nothing that can be done. I can't imagine what your patients have gone through if they have carried this burden for all their life without any resolution.
Many of our criminally mentally ill males have also experienced sexual abuse. It really screws them up.
I think you would need to discuss with the patient (privately) whether this happened in the distant past or if this is a situation they are currently experiencing. If necessary to report problem, go through Social Services Dept. at your facility and they will further investigate and take appropriate action. Don't jump the gun.
How about contacting your local human services department? If your facility is not going to define the issue for you, then they will certainly let you know what your state law requires of you as a required reporter.
i hear so many people in the nursing field speaking about how much they hate their career! do you? why?
i'm having an issue with these locked seclusion orders on my floor. i was told by management that during night shift where there is no physician and after about three pm no advanced practice psychiatric nurse then the person who needs to sign the order is a registered nurse. this supposedly has not been approved or confirmed but that is what management is telling me to do. i mean these locked orders only last for four hours. i feel extremely uncomfortable signing these orders and i had my first locked patient and the charge nurse told me that the best thing to do besides risking my license is unlocking the patient while he is asleep and hope for the best. so i unlocked him and thankfully he was fine for my shift. so what is the locked seclusion protocol for your floors i'm so confused about this topic.
