  4. Latent TB result.. help..
    I tested positive 20+ years ago. I took INH for 6 (maybe 9?) months. It's never been an issue with teaching or working in healthcare. I had to get a chest xray every few years when I taught. At the...

  5. Practicum - ER?
    I did an elective preceptorship in the ED this summer and am hoping I can do my fall preceptorship there as well. It was an amazing experience! I learned more in those 90 hours than I did in all my...

  7. Starting new PCT job tomorrow...
    I clock in at 0645 and take report, which only takes a few minutes. I start vitals around 7:30 so that gives me 45 minutes to take report, fill out my brain sheet (usually 12 patients), etc. Plenty...

    I'm a tech/nursing student and am orienting to a new department. One of the long time techs was orienting me to the supply room. She showed me "the supplies the docs use for incubating someone"...

  12. Can a CNA get a job as an ER pct?
    At my hospital all "techs" are CNAs. We're not called PCTs; we're called HCTs (healthcare techs) and we're in all areas of the hospital, including the ER. In the ER they can be taught how to draw...

  13. Is Bedside Nursing Really for me?
    I've felt like that all through nursing school. I started to dread clinicals and was questioning why I wanted to be a nurse. This summer I was able to do a preceptorship in the ED and I was HOOKED...

    From the time I interviewed to when I started was at least 6 weeks. I'm PRN so I'm only required to work 24 hours (usually 2 12s) every 6 weeks. I try to work one shift every other week if I can....

    There is an HR recruiter that comes to school once a month; she's a great resource to use in your job search. I tried on my own for a few months (and dozens of applications) before contacting her....

  17. Carolinas College Spring 2015 Matriculation
    I took my CNA there before I started. It's an easy class ( no need to study for the tests--very common sense information). Clinicals are at CHS LTC facilities like Sardis Oaks.

  18. Carolinas College Spring 2015 Matriculation
    Honestly, there is no way to prepare. LOL If you're having to take A&P, micro, etc with your nursing classes be prepared to feel completely overwhelmed, at least at first. The instructors are AWESOME...

  20. MR and MOI?
    It's an accepted acronym in my ED used by everyone: doctors, RNs, and medics. We're a level 1 trauma hospital -- maybe it's a regional thing?

  23. MR and MOI?
    MR wasn't my abbreviation. I heard a physician say it when giving report and I've seen it on handouts at the nurses' computer stations regarding charting. Something about "MRs, traumas, and STEMIs"....

  24. MR and MOI?
    No, it's not Mental Retardation. It has something to do with codes/traumas/STEMIs. I only have 2 shifts left so I'm being given a full patient load. We rarely do foleys (I've done 4 so far) or...
