  2. Parkland Feb 2014 residencies/internships
    I don't see how you could successfully complete the residency. I just graduated from residency in November & during the 18 weeks you work 36-40 hrs a week. Then you are on your unit for 36 hrs/week...

  3. Being the mom and the nurse you want to be.....
    That was always my concern. Especially if you work 2 or 3 shifts in a row. I don't know that I'd be in a functional state. I'm interested to hear how these nurses do it! I understand when the kids go...

  4. Being the mom and the nurse you want to be.....
    I think it's possible to find the balance, but not necessarily easy. I've just started my career as an RN with a 7 year old & almost 2 year old. It is hard working 3 12 hour shifts each week, because...

  5. Humor me
    If I'm understanding it correctly, diverticulosis is the presence of 'pockets' while diverticulitis is inflammation of the 'pockets.' So if you said -otis once would maybe expect pt to present with...

  7. Acne from being at the hospital???
    Same here. It was so bad for a few years that now I have scars, though my acne has improved dramatically. I think you should definitely go to a Dr. Can't hurt !

  8. How do YOU use Sheehy's Manual?
    No not an ENA program. I'm in my hospital's critical care residency. Ok, I'll just plan to refer to it in that way. Thanks!

  9. How do YOU use Sheehy's Manual?
    I see this book recommended often & I've had it for months now. I'm just not sure how to use it best. I tried reading it like a book but that didn't really work for me. I'm halfway through residency...

  10. How do you eat healthy and stay fit on 12s?
    I try not to ever buy food. It's expensive to do that! I make big batches of hummus & freeze it in small portions, eat lots of salads, basically just stick with whole foods (not processed, or barely...

  13. starting residency in 3 weeks, should I postpone BSN classes?
    I started an online RN to BSN program while I was waiting to begin work. I had planned to go ahead & take 6 hours this fall, but I'm wondering if it would be better to postpone school. My residency...

  15. Kids, Nursing School, Household, Work???
    Crock pot, meal plan, & prioritize. Food is important, but dusting isn't in my opinion. I lowered my standards a lot. You can do it! Just don't procrastinate! That's what will get you in trouble!

  16. Unit Manager Offered Me a Job Before Graduation.  How to proceed?
    I'd take resume, license, CPR card, etc up there & talk face to face. It could be that even though they'be verbally offered you a job they have to go through HR type of stuff. Talk about stressful...

    I ended up really liking a Live scribe pulse pen. You have to buy their notebooks, but they have special paper in them, so the pen is recording the lecture while you take notes & the pen syncs your...

  19. What do you wear under scrubs?
    I wore tank tops or short sleeve t-shirts under scrub tops. I'm more hot natured as well. Check to make sure you don't have a specific dress code to follow. :-)

  20. Will ER nurses help me answer a few questions, please??
    The hospital that hired me (new grad ER) also offers a trauma/CCU residency & they did require BSN. So at least 1 hospital does require that. TNCC you would probably be expected to earn while you...

    My advice is to pick your top 2 priorities & focus on those. If you can handle more, that's just bonus. In other words, baby & school need to be important, working not so much. You have childcare, so...
