Keep ‘em alive until 7:05
Epic's training is very standardized and regimented. What you received sounds about right.
I'm not male, but: no, husband is not enough. You should get a female coworker, if you need a chaperone.
But wait, what words did she use, and the context? That would factor into my opinion.
Did she say something like "It's a damn fine department and you'd be hella lucky to work here" or did she say "The position is vacant because the previous nurse was a no-talent assclown mother ******" ?
I swear, but I know enough to not swear until people know me well. I wouldn't do it in an interview.
What do YOU think makes a good leader or manager?
It's their job if they are on call from home, too.
I'm not sure that we are the "most respected profession."
I have applied to this hospital before, but I haven't applied to their CVICU until recently.
She also very obviously ignored my pointed questions about 1) how many times she has applied to this facility, and 2) whether she previously went by the username Purplegal.
Nope. Physicians in house at all times
I have a husband who is very supportive of my career and does the majority of the child-related duties and dinners during the weeknights. Also, I try to balance my time at work - there are plenty of times when I have to stay until 6 or 7pm, or come in on a weekend. To offset that, I give myself permission to leave at 2:30 or 3pm on those other days when there's not much going on and everything is settled and under control.
Considering the hours of the two positions, I would say that the ANM position is probably a "charge nurse +" position, and you would be working on the floor doing patient care in addition to some admin duties, while the NM position would be predominantly administrative.
Maybe I am missing something. We have 80-100 babies at any given time. The doctors are being called numerous times throughout the night. They are getting paid to be at the hospital, why wouldn't the bedside nurses call them?
Let's not derail this thread. If you want to discuss that, let's start a new one.
There is no law that would address it. The question is: what is a sensible amount of time to administer CPR/ACLS before "calling" it? Good luck with your homework!
