  2. Maybe bedside nursing isn't for me
    I just don't enjoy it like I thought I would. I need a stable routine. I don't like not knowing what kind of shape my floor will be in each night as I head to work. I was happy at my registration...

  3. Maybe bedside nursing isn't for me
    OK, it's been 2.5 years since I got my ASN. I've tried Med Surg and CCU. I'm starting to think that bedside nursing just isn't my thing. What other areas could I look into.

  4. If you were my preceptor......what should I know?!
    Most of this sounds exactly like what I do on my general Med/Surg floor. What differences in nursing can I expect to see in ICU?

  5. new to ICU
    I'm getting ready to start a new position in ICU after 2 years in med/surg. Can any ICU nurses give me a run-down of their routine? I'm wondering what to expect and what differences I'll see.

  10. ICU nurses, Is 3:1 patient to nurse ratio a common occurence or am I just tripping?
    Usually 1:1 and sometimes 1:2 at my place. 1:3 just does not sound safe.

  11. Maybe I'm not nursing material?
    I've had my license about 2 months but I'm beginning to wonder if I've just not got what it takes to be a nurse. I feel like I didn't learn anything in nursing school. I suck at picking up...

  15. How do I study for NCLEX?
    I wish I could afford the Kaplan class, but it isn't in my budget at this time. My employer will reimburse the cost once you become licensed, but that doesn't help me to pay for it now. I also wish...

    At my school we could take the TEAS 3 x's in 2 years. All the ATI exams are graded by percentiles. It's not so much about the # of right and wrong as it is a matter of scoring higher than a...
