And in the case of exposure from mother to infant, the HBIG is given, not the Hep B vaccine. The vaccine does not prevent vertical transmission, it prevents theoretical exposure later in life.
I had no experience when hired 3 years ago. I now work as a specially trained STI nurse. Different places have different ways of titling their positions. I'm now PHN whereas at my last position I was RN. Our department has community health vs public health. I can try to figure out the difference if you supply a link with an example.
I've made a med error before. My colleagues told me that a good nurse reflects on their mistakes, learns, and never makes the same mistake again (versus someone who just says oh well). I've made a med error before and you bet I quadruple check now.
I was in state so I am not sure if it is different but University of South Florida's RN to BSN is inexpensive and an online program. It was great! Also, look into if your state offers tuition assistance/loan payoff for undergraduate and graduate coursework. Good luck!
