1:1 only if they are on crrt, IABP and multiple pressors, otherwise we try to pair with a less acuity pt
I have been nurse for about 15yrs now and on my early 40s. Now I am thinking to go back to school for Post Masters -NP Program as I already have MSN. I have been working mostly as a bedside nurse in different units-med/surg/ortho/nuro/onco. I also have worked as a case manager and currently working as a medical record Utilization Review nurse. I am happy for what I am doing right now, but it doesn't pay well. I miss patient interaction, as well as I want to be competent with medical knowledge and nursing skills.
I have been looking to different Online colleges-GCU, Maryville, and Texas A&M-CC. But not sure which is better.
I also have dilemma on FNP or Acute care gerontology FNP.
Please help me with valuable suggestion.
Hello, i hadn't seen this post until this morning. So answer your question.....I happen to have both CCRN and CVRN level 2. They are both separate organizations that adminster the exam; that is CCRN=ANCC and CVRN=ABCM. Having said that, the CVRN is more challenging than CCRN. So if you work in CVICU, CCU or Cardiac cath lab i would highly recommend CVRN. They have local chapters depending on what state you live in and you can attend one of their sessions. I suggest reading the book "Cardiovascular Nursing practice: A comprehensive Resource Manual and Study Guide for Clinical Nurses". This book is great even for daily reading!
But most of all it has hemodynamics, IABP interpretation, mechanical ventilator interpretation, 12lead ECG and Pacemakers, the pathophysiology is easy to understand as well plus the entire exam consists of a lot of information i found in here. I actually read it when i was testing for CMC. Good luck with the reading
Did they not have a choice to walk away to the nearest attorneys office?
This is insane and very abusive π‘
Sounds like this was their way of coping with the pain. I'd be more concerned with managing it than what coming out of their mouth. Besides every one has different tolerance levels.
The problem with us Nurses we accept and start positions without getting a job description, hours, pay and out of norm expectations in writing. Always ask for this before you start otherwise your job description becomes a he said she said discussion!
Just turn on your cellphone on record go close to him and say " oh doctor would you please repeat the whole conversation about nurses being monkeys? I just want to make sure I get an accurate description for human resources "
That should fix him ππ
Haha... I was much more patient in the ICU and yes some of the med-surg Nurses are awesome!.....some just push my buttons especially when they administer Lovenox right before i call the patient for a procedure under general anesthesia, or give patient a little water right before general anesthesia aaaarrggg!!! I just want to scream but i remain calm and cancel the procedure, let the surgeon do the yelling:-)
