    Patient: I'm pregnant and I think I'm miscarrying!
    RN: How far along are you? (as she collects urine sample)
    Patient: 3-4 weeks. I haven't been tested yet but I know my body.
    RN: When was your last period?
    Patient: the 7th.
    RN: So...a month ago? (reads results from UPT -- negative). You're not pregnant. You're having your period.
    Patient's male companion: I'm outta here, *****!

    Patient brought by EMS for severe lower abdominal cramping.
    Patient: I started cramping and it felt like contractions so I got worried.
    RN: Any chance you're pregnant?
    Patient: No, I haven't had sex for 10 years. I just need something for menstrual cramps.

    My plan was:
    1) Do well in school.
    2) Use whatever free resources I could get at school, online, and from classmates.
    3) Don't freak out about NCLEX.
    4) Take NCLEX ASAP after graduating. I took it 3 weeks after graduation.
    5) Pass in 75 questions.

    My very basic plan worked. I have no idea how many SATA I had nor do I care. IT MEANS NOTHING. There are above the line SATAs and below the line SATAs. You can pass with 20 SATAs and you can pass with NO SATAs.

    I'm in the ED. Our ETOHers are marked as MTF -- metabolize to freedom. When a bunch of orders pop up at shift change: DSP = day shift problem.

    I cannot believe my first semester of nursing school is DONE! I was exempt from the final and finished the course with a 93%. We took the CAP test today (through ATI) for Fundamentals. I scored a level 3 and ranked in the 94th percentile nationally. I am feeling grrrrrrrrrreat today!

    Quote from RNsRWe
    Just to add another weird variation to the mix (and probably the result of a computer glitch), someone posted that she used a gift card with five bucks on it, it TOOK the five bucks....and then told her she couldn't register. So.....WTH? According to the popular theory, a card will either be charged for the full amount, or declined for insufficient funds. Yet.....not always.

    Answer: if you offer Pearson Vue money, don't be surprised if they take it!
    I used a VISA gift card with $10 on it. Got the good pop up. I let 2 classmates use the same card -- they both got the good pop up. I still have my $10.

    That's the trouble with tricks -- they're just tricks and not 100% foolproof.

    Quote from OnlyHim
    Both would be FT. 3 days on for both with every other weekend. I think the concern of the schedules overlapping is what I'm considering. One has a 12week orientation and the other is variable...
    Not only should you be concerned about scheduling conflicts, but I'd be more concerned about crashing and burning. Working 6 days a week including every weekend in 2 high intensity fields is taking on A LOT. I'm a new grad in a level 1 trauma ED and working 3 shifts a week wipes me out! I can't imagine working 6 shifts every week and still finding time to sleep, do laundry, run errands, spend time with friends and family.

    I'm at a level 1 trauma center ED. We're all ED RNs. Only those who are TNCC certified as Trauma Nurses can run traumas. Once trauma protocol is dc'ed, then any ED RN can take over care.
