I could not believe this student I had the other night. I picked up a shift on my old unit (telemetry) and the charge asked me if I minded having a student with me as his preceptor had called off sick. Ofcourse not! I love having students. So, I grab my MAR's, Kardexes and tell him we are going to check them over for mistakes. This usually takes about 30 minutes. In that time, NO LIE, he got 2 text messages and an actual phone call. All of which he took.
When I was done I said are you ready? (I will admit, this was said through clenched teeth) and he said, Yeah. CHECKED HIS PHONE ONE MORE TIME:angryfire Then I said, Good. Because the FIRST thing your going to do is take that phone out of your pocket, put it in your coat and leave it there for the rest of the shift.
OMG! I mean, I will call my husband during my break, but I can't think of anyone I need to talk to while I am at work. It was SOOOO inappropriate. Has anyone else encountered anything like this?
I would like to thank everyone responding to my last post about being scared of getting kicked out. I did some thinking and I realize that I am having trouble with remembering steps to procedures that are reflecting in my clinicals. I don't have problems with the exams but when it comes to remembering what was shown to me awhile ago I am having trouble with remembering clinical procedures. Now I'm thinking that maybe I lack the necessary common sense needed to be a nurse. I am very sad b/c I wanted to be a nurse for 5 years. But for me to remember hands-on things, I'm the kind of person that would need to practice things 20 times to get it imprinted in my brain. And with doing care-plans-I never seem to get good remarks on my papers and these things take me several hrs. to do. I am also taking anatomy and phys. II. I really enjoy writing and reading so maybe I should become an English major? I don't know. I feel like a retard to be having so much trouble with basic procedures. Yes, I was checked off for these in the past. I need some opinions here. Appreciate any comments.
Me too. I would like it even better if it was divided into two volumes b/c it is so darn heavy.
Hi, I just want to ask how and where should I authenticate my TOR and RLE, or the school will do it for me?
Right now, I'm doing my Kaplan review. I'm also using the Saunder's Book. i study about 3-4 hours per day. i'm still using the kaplan course book, so i'm still not answering questions except when it's after the chapter or something. i started my review last march... how about you???
Could anyone help me regarding the cover letter to be written to the Vermont BON regarding the status of my license undergoing processing? To whom shall I address the letter?
Thank you so much for the updates and the help.
Nice to hear that Nurse butterflyC. A 1 year waiting time gfor Pearsonvue registration. When did you send your application?
this happened when i was a student nurse... that was about 5 years ago. hahaha... we were doing a graded physical assessment demo, and i was really really really anxious! the clinical instructor that's going to grade my demo was a complete terror! ok... physical assessment was supposed to be cephalocaudal, ryt... but when it was my turn, i got everything mixed up! my mind was totally disorganized! hahaha... plus... when i was doing the breast assessment on my classmate, i just checked the left breast ONLY! i forgot the right breast which was totally dumb coz it was right there staring in fron of me! well... i find that very funny now that i think about it.. hehehehe
i'm waiting from my eligibility sometime between april and may... as for when the eligibility expire, from what i can remember, i think it's 365 days (1 year). you have a year to register w/ pearsonvue... and you got 60 days to schedule your nclex exam...
How many days is this review?
What was the cost?
What area of the PI is this located?
it is not advisable to erase.. our profs told us that erasing the back of the exam paper wont work either. it mat screw up the entire paper..remember the optical machines that would be checking the papers are very senstive. why do you think they would give the examinees that kind of intruction?? i did not erasure during my time. i answered first the questions that i know..and do not shade unless your 101% sure of your answer
I was kind of amazed as i read the posts ... one month ago, i was called by the local medical center here in lucena city because they said that im already hired as a staff. I heared that staffs from this hospital is making 11,000-15,000 a month. Not bad for a newly grad i thought ( I graduated last year). After the interview and all, i was told that i will only have 250.00 a day (that's 5 dollars for 10 hours work)... I was assignd to pedia-picu department... we have up to 80 patients and only 1 to 2 nurses per shift and works up to 10 hours ...to make it short after a month, when i was about to get my salary, they told me that the hospital wont renew the new applicants since they have no budget... Its up to me if i will still continue with my work!... ofcourse I will continue since I need to get an experience and make my self more productive and efficient nurse...
needless to say, I'am now working for FREE!
The only consideration I get is that my patients always appreciate my work and always told me how great I am as a nurse!redbeathe
