Random question, but what happens if you have emisis with a jaw wired shut? wire cutters? Sorry to hear about your jaw OP. I would go with the fruit smoothies and some milk shakes (hey guilt free right . Hope you get better soon!
I am not sure about Florida, but in California the first time you renew (which is the month after your next birthday) you do not need to compete and CEU's. You usually can find this information on the BRN's website. As far as the health department keeping track of CEU's, here you have to keep track of yourself and if they ask for proof (or audit you) you must show it to them. Sometimes they do not. If you are in doubt call the board and ask them for clarification. Hope this helps.
Edit: Just looked at the Florida's Nursing Website and it is not as clear as California's. You probably should call and clarify or if another nurse here has any info.
Do what you think is best for you, because as soon as that travel company (or any company for that matter) doesn't need you, you will be out the door! Two weeks notice is plenty of time. Good luck!!
Did you get a receipt from the drug screening? I know when I did mine for multiple jobs that I got a slip back that said what they tested for.
Best of luck to you!
I know of some soon to be mommy's wearing a solid color tee-shirt with an open scrub jacket in their later months of pregnancy. Good luck and congrats!!
I worked in a physicians office and she had these. THe needles usually come separately and you attach them (luer lock type) Just twist the needle on and inject. Really easy and convenient.
Although I am only 25, I say go for it and follow your dream. I feel like nursing school attracts a large variety of students. In my nursing school we ranged from 20 years old to over 50. It was great to have that variety as you learn from the older and the younger.
So sorry you didn't pass OP. Like another poster said. Keep your head up and don't give up. If you made it through nursing school you can definitely pass! I know it will be hard, but take some time for yourself and a week or two off from thinking about it. Also I took the Hurst Review before I took my nclex and that really helped me. It was more of a review of information and how to think through the questions. Good luck to you and keep us posted when you take it again
After putting in a general application i got a call back for an interview on a tele floor. I really have not had an interview go bad yet (Knock on wood!!) but my interview for this RN position last yr was a bit odd. She sounded so excited to hire me, Interview went amazing. However; the conversation ended a little something like this:
"I really think you would be an asset to the team and would love to be able to hire you. However; we currently do not have any positions open. Shall we have any positions open, i would love to be able to consider you for the position"
i just wanted to be like "WHAT DO YOU MEAN?? you don't have any positions open? Why did you interview me then??"
Yeah, i still don't understand Why i got that call. it was so odd, and i know it wasnt her "excuse" not to hire me because they really didnt have any positions.
I worked for a private physician who sounded similar to this doctor. Straight and to the point and very blunt, but it was a great learning experience and after awhile when you exceed her expectations (which I believe you will have no problem doing) you will gain more and more respect for you. Hang in there!!! I always tried to stay a step ahead of her and anticipate what she would want in her appointments, and this really helped the flow of the office
Hello and Welcome!
Congrats on getting your BSN, your in CA? Where did you get your BSN if I may ask!?
Not terribly "weird" but I can't help but flinch each time someone utters the word QUIET, as in "it sure is quiet around here" Regardless of the situation, I begin to imagine all sorts of awful things happening becaused someone just jinxed us. I really want to dive under the nursing station desks when someone says it at work....
Hi all, My name is Laura and I am new to the website. I have posted in a few different threads, but just wanted to say a formal hello. I have already found that allnurses is a great place to see that other nurses are or have gone through many similar situations that I have been through. I graduated with a BSN in December 2009, but just started working on a med/surg tele floor in mid march. I am so happy to be finally starting my nursing career. I look forward to reading about others experiences and advice!!!
I find that I cannot stop staring at people's veins, the juicier the better. Help me!!:uhoh21:
Going for an interview can never be a bad thing, the worst that can happen is that you decline a position, but you never know it could be a better opportunity for you and leave the position you already accepted.
Good luck in whichever you chose!
