  4. Do I need to give my manager notice?

  7. IV removal etiquette?
    I usually just hold the 2x2 over the IV site when I'm removing it... and if for some reason you get a couple drops of blood on the patient, no big deal. Just wipe it off.

  13. What constitutes "professional appearance" these days?

  19. Nursing Student Terrified about Preceptorship
    I accepted a position on a telemetry unit because I feel I need to have stronger cardiac skills before I go to the ICU, but if you are comfortable with your knowledge base, then go straight into ICU.
