  1. Mistakes as a new pediatric oncology RN
    Maybe a cyclosporine infusion? We use a specific lumen for that particular drug. Otherwise, I'm confused about the line contamination thing. If it was your standard antibiotics, you're supposed to...

    Acute care experience in a hospital is a huge advantage. Your years in peds are great, too - you know how to relate to kids and their families. One of the unique things about peds hem/onc is you take...

    They've changed this class a lot since I took it! Do the virtual assessments replace the ridiculous 15+ page actual assessments? If so....man you guys lucked out!

    Yes....it's definitely time consuming! I work nights, so I'm working on the ICP tonight and all day tomorrow. I just keep counting down in my head - 3 more weeks!

  6. NRSE 4600
    The key is to have a topic that interests you, and that has lots of research behind it. Did you do okay on week 1? I'm just starting the week 2 portion.

  7. Attention tall nurses!!!
    I'm just shy of 5'10, and swear by Koi's whole line. Naturally, one of the most expensive is the one that fits me the best! I have long muscular legs, and their tall lengths have fit me perfectly...

  9. Which nursing program in Cincinnati?
    I'm a Cincy State grad. I got a job at CCHMC....the hospital notorious for never ever ever hiring ADN nurses. I'm doing OU's RN-BSN program, about 16 months total. After all is said and done, I'll...

  10. Cincinnati Ohio
    Suzy is bitter lol I've lived here my whole life. Like any mid sized city, it has its perks and faults. Hospital wise, it has great choices! The market is as saturated here as any other in Ohio.

  11. Anyone in 4510 this summer?

  12. RN-BSN Program at OU
    I work 3 12s at night as well. It's a nonissue. That's the beauty of online programs - everything is due by midnight but it doesn't matter when you do it! :) OU has the same problems that other...

  13. Questions regarding assignments
    The project in nursing excellence can get quite lengthy, from what I've heard. Once you get over your fear of paper writing (and you will, because the first class is nothing but dry boring papers!),...

  14. This needs to be stated.
    Apparently a lot of ADN programs don't include gero. They should let you test out of nursing classes!!!!

  15. This needs to be stated.
    I hate gerontology. I hated it in my ADN program, and I hate it even more now. This class is disorganized. I cannot apply these concepts to my practice because I'm a frigging pediatric nurse. The...

  16. Cincinnati State Nursing Program?
    Why not do Cincy State's RN program instead? I'm sure the wait list is longer for the RN program, but it might be less time (definitely cheaper!) to do that program and RN to BSN somewhere else. I'm...

    I spent more time on this class than most of my nursing ones. Lots of repetition is what helped me through it. I spent way too many afternoons toiling over the modules, reworking the formulas until I...

    I took it a year ago. That class is really involved. If you want some responses, you may need a give a few more details about your specific difficulties. Just a thought ;)

    Alaris tubing contains 16mls of fluid, from the air sensor to the end of the line. If you pause the incompatible med and allow enough time for the compatible fluid to flush the line entirely, you'd...

    Of those three, I would go with Christ. To be fair, I don't know much about St. E's system. I'm too lazy and cheap to apply for a KY license so I stayed north of the river :cool:
