  1. How long until able to register for NCLEX
    Hi all, Just curious...about how long after you graduated were you able to take the NCLEX? I know it says 4-6 weeks on the app, but is it really that long? In OR (where I'm going to school), you...

    Thanks Esme! I have a few that have served me well in nursing school, but I'm getting the feeling I'm going to have to step it up a notch. Plus, I've never done time on a renal unit, so these sheets...

  5. New job in Johnson City with MSHA
    I started applying super early because I'm paranoid. :P But anyway, I worked as a Med Aide/CNA in school, did lots of volunteer work, and spent hours on my applications. I was offered two positions...

    So, I have an interview coming up for an RN position on an Acute Renal Unit. I'm a new grad, and don't have any clinical experience on a solely renal unit (although I've worked with renal failure...

  11. This "us" vs "them" mentality....
    I'm not saying it would take 2 seconds to show me what to do....I'm saying it would take 2 seconds to tell me to grab my clinical faculty and go do it. The nurse wouldn't have to be there, because my...

  12. Community College? You must be stupid.
    I agree with this. In my area, it's the opposite. Portland hospitals job listings are starting to spread the message that by 2013, they won't be hiring ADNs without previous RN experience, and they...

  13. This "us" vs "them" mentality....
    You know, I do see what you're saying...but sometimes it can't be helped. For example, I've never inserted an NG tube. Most of my classmates have, but I've never had a patient who has needed one. I...

  15. This "us" vs "them" mentality....
    Scary! I guess I'm lucky....the hospitals here let us pull all medications except for narcotics, and we can give most meds and hang most IVs w/o an RN present (provided they trust us, obviously). IV...

  17. This "us" vs "them" mentality....
    Ooh, I see what you're saying. One thing is that not all the nurses on the unit are DEU nurses--most of them don't want students. It's more that a unit asks their nurses if they want to work with...

  18. This "us" vs "them" mentality....
    I don't really see it that way. It's the same as having normal clinicals, except that you're in a better environment for learning. If anything, I'd say it's an improvement. I've never met a student...

    I do understand that. You don't need us as students. But you do need coworkers, and I'm sure at one point one of them will be a new grad who was in a situation like this. Students don't stay students...

    DEU= Dedicated Education Unit. It's a system that my school uses that they're trying to get other schools and hospitals to adopt. Nurses from the unit volunteer to work with students. Typically, the...

    That seriously terrifies me. Luckily, I feel like my school has trained us better than that and the nurses I've worked with have been able to trust that. By the time we're done our first 6 week...

    I'm really sorry you feel that way. On the units I've been on, we essentially take over as the aide so it's pretty much like communicating with them. And while the student may not be part of your...

    No, but it was similar. The surgeon had placed a semi-permanent tube into the pt's pleura and out the skin that allowed us to use luer lock syringes to remove fluid from her pleura. They actually do...

    Hm...that's an interesting thought. I'm really hoping that's not how I'm coming off to nurses, and I don't think that my peers tend to behave that way. If I ever told ignored my nurse or told her to...
