Cardiac/Telemetry...nights...2 years...now full time days...love it! Was a PCT on floor before I got the RN gig so I already knew about the "idiosyncrosies"
The "customer is always right" attitude.
No-- they're not always right.
Simple answer....since most health care these days is "for profit" let's never forget...the "customer" is NOT always right...
Hmmm...why don't we look at the hypocrisy around "legal" drugs...specifically nicotine and alcohol....never once saw a pt. for on my unit (cardiac) from marijuana...never! Oh...hmmm...let's see...daily deaths related to booze and cancer sticks....what a lovely system we have!
Salve and packet
Trailer home plumber...as in crawling underneath to remove the old and disgusting rotted wood under the "bathrooms" utterly disgusting, but bills had to be paid!
Cream and affidavit
The above poster is correct. I too am a cynic...a realist is more like it...check into the dog and pony show that is magnet status. My suggestion is if you can afford it go straight for the BSN...ADN sadly is fast becoming obsolete especially if you see yourself in a hospital. Also avoid the RN to BSN bridge programs if you can...I did one and yes I am secure with the BSN (expensive piece of paper) but it was essentially a repeat of all the ADN classes and even as a working nurse had to endure clinical! Ridiculous and a big money maker, but it is the game to be played. Good luck!
Get a tutor...most schools offer free services. I did and got an A! You can do it!
For major hospitals in CT it is...unless...you have an "in". ie: work there already as a pct, uc etc...otherwise...good luck
