Anyone who makes an 'SH' out of an 'S'.......like shtrict instead of strict, or shtreet, instead of street. Drives. me. bonkers. What's worse is there is a radio DJ on the local station that talks like this with every 's' word. ugh. It's the little things that will get me in the end.
I have been offered and accepted a position in an ICU unit. My sneakers from school are wrecked at this point and I need to get something that will be supportive and comfy yet light. I am looking for your experiences with footwear for nursing. I am considering Dansko clogs, trainers, or walking shoes, the RN's on the unit wear all different shoes.....what shoes have you loved? Hated?
Placing a foley on a woman. I am the WORST. I think I got it right once :***:
You can also get your PMHNP degree and then a post masters in FNP. I 100% agree with Jules, you need to work in psych before you pick it as a specialty. We have people in our program that are going for psych and have not worked it.... they're the "touchy-feely" type that is in for a rude awakening, I have listened to them talk in class and feel dread for them for their first exposure to an inpatient unit.
Try Indeed.com. You can search by state, or nationwide. They also have a lot of recruiters, I asked a question to one place that advertised close to me and left my contact info and I have been inundated by recruiters. I don't even graduate until May. You should have no problem finding a job, especially if you can relocate.
Congratulations, you are an inspiration to others! I thoroughly enjoyed reading your article and gaining insight to a life that I can only imagine.
Yes I am finally done. It was a long haul and I can finally say:
I am Barnstormin' PMHNP-BC
I have a great job waiting for me that I negotiated an awesome salary for
I have no intention of ever going for a DNP/Phd
Best. Day. EVER.
Excellent post, and so very true.
I notice that sometimes when I thank fellow health care providers for their assistance they almost always look surprised, then suspicious and then really pleased when they realize I'm not putting them on lol.
KansaFNP, I would "like" your above post a hundred times if I could, great sense of humor.
I think not.done.yet's post should be a sticky somewhere on this site, preferably in multiple areas. Very astute and wise......I think it is the best post I have read.
I have used Dove for decades on my face and body, I even use it for shaving my legs. I love scented washes too and my ongoing favorite is Crabtree & Evelyn's "Nantucket Briar". It's spicy and herbal. I also get whatever smells good when bodywashes are on sale. Sometimes I use my husband's Old Spice body wash....love that spice!!!
Is it weird that this post pulled me out of lurking mode?
Xeno, I am working inpatient acute unit, doing consult liason and carrying a caseload. My collaborating psychiatrist is awesome and loves to teach. For my salary I was lowballed by HR (typical for them) and fought long and hard with the backing of my director and psychiatrist to get a 30k increase. I'm very happy with that.
I worked per diem on this unit as an RN so it is familiar ground, and I do love acute psych. I am also very pleased with having a psychiatrist with decades of experience who is just amazing
