"A few hours" is actually consistent with the established duration of marijuana intoxication.
Smoking pot doesn't put your patients at risk, being intoxicated does. My personal experience was that the intoxication lasted for a few hours
Wait the same nurse has had this before? With a missing unused patch?
At your 5th attempt your chance of passing is very low.
Have you spoken to your program about resources they may have to help you?
there has been more than one "error" regarding proper handling of Fentanyl patchs with "per diem" staff.
. Not making sense to me.
I think the point here is that regular staff are following the policy and the per diem are not. Something in training perhaps?
What I see is a process failure. If regular employees are doing this correctly, what is the breakdown for the others?
What's the common denominator?
I did speak to my director more, she said "as a more senior nurse you should be leading by example".
Thank you !
I thought that is what was meant by it but was unsure because it is listed separately from 'work experience'
You found a serious error. It is not your job to judge if it was an innocent error or not! I would have serious concerns about a manager that wasn't very interested in the error you brought forward. A narcotic is missing, a highly abuse narcotic, and a patient was without pain medication for 3 days.
I was wondering if anyone could tell me what "clinical experience" means in regards to having it on your CV? The University I am applying to for my DNP says this:
Work ExperienceClinical ExperienceResearch ExperienceLeadership Involvement (including board/committee participation)Awards and/or HonorsPublication(s)
Do they mean SCHOOL clinical experience? And if so, what do I include? I assume everyone in nursing school has the same kinds of clinicals right? OB, psych, med surg, etc?
Im sorry if this is obvious, I guess Im just nervous about applying and want everything to be perfect.
I remember being a student and having my mentor yell at me about positives and negatives and I never thought it was a big deal. Now its one of my biggest pet peeves with students.
