  5. New grad- what to do if patient dies
    I just want to say that you should probably change that "if" to a "when". Prepare yourself mentally that it WILL happen, and after talking to your preceptor, run a code through your mind. Get...

  6. Had never considered the ER but....
    I'm not a nurse yet, but My thoughts are that you will be new, but not inexperienced as a nurse, just in the ER setting. Yes, ER is a whole different animal, but you aren't a new nurse, and that is...

  10. How High Is the Demand For Male CNA's /LPN's/RN's?
    It's not males in general, but people in general with the personality that fits the job. The fact is, many men aren't the "type" to be able to do this kind of work, or they are and don't know it. ...

  12. Pet Peeve

  18. Dosage calculation question
    Thanks! I posed it as a question, rather than saying "Hey this isn't wrong", I said "I thought I was supposed to divide the daily dose by 2, no?" It aggravates me, because I have a few...
