  4. Do I get paid for orientation??
    Just ask your manager. That's the only way to know for sure. Write down all the questions you have before hand, that way they will be fresh in your memory while you are asking. In the future I...

  5. Bullied at work
    Wait... so you are an LPN, yet they are short staffed with CNA's so now you're working as a CNA? I like how it's your "fault" they are short and your punishment is to be a CNA now. Gee that makes...

  7. Need a little help
    The floats at my hospital make the same exact pay. They both work full time, 40 hrs a week, set schedules. The only difference is they float to whichever floor needs them that day.

  8. Did I completely ruin my nursing career?
    You'll be fine. I'm sure down the line you'll be able to use them as a reference. I would send them a letter either mail or email thanking them for their understanding, showing your gratitude for...

  9. 36:1 ratio?
    There are more mistakes other than passing meds a nurse can make. Also, not all med errors are from "passing." Many meds aren't taken orally either. The CNA's do all the meds? That's great. :no:...

  12. 36:1 ratio?
    Keep looking. You have experience, so your options are greater. I am on a 31 bed unit in a hospital. Sometimes I have the whole floor and 5-6 nurses who all pitch in, and that's STILL hard and...

  16. condom catheters
    Sizing is everything. Always go smaller than you think. You take 3-4 adhesive preps and apply everywhere, than take them and squeeze the excess over the penis letting it drip onto it. Next you put...

    You are right. I work in a hospital, and if an employee were to leave the pt they would be in trouble. So if the RN tells the pt, "I'll go get the CNA to finish up here. You take your time," they...

    I don't care if we hourly round, more staff still equals less falls and greater pt satisfaction. When will administrations "get" this? Lol
