  1. Ortho travel?
    A fellow night shifter I presume? Haha... That's really what I wanted to hear. I'd like to become well-rounded like that, and there is no better way to learn IMO.

  2. Ortho travel?
    Thanks... My floor is a telemetry floor as well. Do you think that working on a specialized floor like I am will effect my ability to find travel jobs?

  3. Ortho travel?
    Hi, I currently work on an ortho/neuro floor in my first nursing job. Our patients are generally lumber, knee, and hip surgeries or CVAs/TIAs. I want to start travelling in a few months and would...

  4. Would prior IT experience trump clinical experience?
    I want to work in a position that takes advantage of my RN license. I'll pay my dues doing whatever I need to out of the gate. My ultimate goal, however, isn't bedside care. I haven't really decided...

  5. Would prior IT experience trump clinical experience?
    That's sort of what I was thinking. I'm going to try to shadow someone in informatics soon to try to get a better feel for it.

  6. Would prior IT experience trump clinical experience?
    I graduate in ten months with an ADN degree for a second career in nursing. My previous career was IT. I'd like to get some opinions on whether or not my IT experience (which is fairly extensive)...

  9. It's all about who you know!
    So, if the OP knew some manager or "higher up" at the hospital she is trying to get on at, she would not speak to them about finding a job? I'm truly not trying to start a flame war here, but I...

  10. Im in my final year- and incompetent.
    Well...for one thing, I don't believe any new grad on planet earth is going to come out on day one and be "like the nurses I see in the hospital". :) I'm in NS myself now, so take this with a...

  11. All electronics banned?
    Yeah...I agree. My program doesn't have a waiting list though. I guess that makes her the first one to bite the dust. I do think I've figured out why so many think that nursing teachers are out...

  12. All electronics banned?
    Wow...this thread took off. I think one student has already quit the program over having her phone taken from her. The teachers told us nine different ways that they would take any phones that...

  13. Peers critical of my new grad job choice
    Bravo! I'm happy for you! I just started NS a few weeks ago, and I'm already hearing Level I students talk about how they are only going to do this or that. I'll be happy with whatever I get two...

  14. THERE IS NO NURSING SHORTAGE in 2010.
    Most people just don't seem to realize that this recession affects everything. All hospitals in my area are on a hiring freeze or are laying off people. It doesn't matter if you are a new grad, or as...

  15. All electronics banned?
    UPDATE: Apparently, enough people complained! We CAN have notebooks and recorders in lectures but not clinicals, which I completely understand for HIPPA. Yay!

  17. All electronics banned?
    The professor did mention that we could blame past students on these policies. I guess it only takes a few people to mess it up for everyone else. My handwriting is awful as well, and I type...

  18. All electronics banned?
    I was curious if any other programs have a "no electronic devices allowed" rule for lectures or clinicals. No computers, netbooks, voice recorders, or pdas/cell-phones with apps. I'm very...
