  1. Working on two units.
    My manager runs 3 units -- one med/surg and two IMUs. She told me up front that she expected all of her employees to be able to work all three units. How do I put this information on my resume? I...

  2. Do you read hospital Yelp reviews?
    When I search for hospitals on Google, I come across the their website then the Yelp page for that hospital almost right under the hospital link. Occasionally I'll read the reviews, and I usually...

  3. Prioritizing infusions
    Platelets. It takes longer to hang the platelets, and if the next nurse is upset because "they have to hang something that should've been done on your shift," whatever. It's an antibiotic. Edit:...

  4. To those who like their nursing job....
    I work MedSurg, and I love my job. I know a lot of people leave nursing school thinking, "I don't want to be a floor nurse." I didn't really know what I wanted after nursing school, and while I was...

  5. Moving to Tampa later this year.
    I hadn't heard of St. Joseph's. I have another hospital where I can apply:) Thanks! I just saw the jobs on there right now. When they say "post-surgical," do they mean they mean like PACU or IMU?

    My husband filed for early separation from the Air Force earlier this year. We will be moving to a Temple Terrace where he grew up, assuming they approve him. I've been watching the VA website, but...

  7. CEUs on resume?
    I saw it on a nursing resume template, and I thought it looked weird. I thought any special classes were discussed in an interview. It would make sense if you taught the class. Thank you for all...

  8. I can't do this anymore
    I'm sorry about your situation, but I'm wondering where you are in Houston, especially since you have so many other places you can work. On a side note, I miss Houston dearly, and really wanted to...

  10. Is it really that bad?
    It's different for each person, but yes, be prepared to feel overwhelmed (...that's an understatement). There are some people who manage to figure out their footing and never lose it, and there are...

  11. The *EXPERT* Beginner
    ...well if I started 5 IVs (as in placement, not starting fluids), I'd be kinda proud too -- like 5 different people, but in one person? 5 liters in at the same time? O.O; oh my...

  12. "You've got the wrong Mary" ... A Vent About Rude Doctors
    A lot of the time, at least where I am, I find this more commonly in surgeons. If the hospitalist throws a fit, whatever. I don't feel as bad calling them as I would a surgeon, mostly because there's...

  14. Retired nurse injects feces into husband's IV
    Assuming there was something going on between the two of them, I wonder what he did that she felt she needed to end his life in that manner (...if she was going to go that route, why not just steal...

  16. Does Preferring to Work Night Shift mean you're lazy?
    I worked day-shift, and I didn't care for it. I'd always preferred working nights before even going into nursing. My preceptor told me about a former co-worker who when they both worked in MICU would...

  20. State Licensure
    Have you already paid for everything? If you have, it would be easier to get licensed in the state you attend school. You should call the California Board of Nursing to find out.

  21. Patients that fire everyone/demand everything
    I don't know what to say about the doctors, though I'm inclined to think someone needs to have a serious talk with them, probably both doctors and nurses. If the family had their own nurses then...

  22. Patients that fire everyone/demand everything
    Oh lord, I would be happy to be fired from that family. It's too bad management won't or can't have a discussion with them about their behavior, and my god, what doctor hangs out on the unit for...

  23. Worried about paying off student loan debt
    Yes you do, but they also said you could pay it off early to avoid paying a lot of interest. I'm paying off my private loan first before getting rid of my federal loans. Total minimum on federal...

  25. If you could have one nursing superpower, what would it be?
    Oh man, I don't know if I want special vision (I don't know if x-ray counts) to see veins to do an IV (and maybe see whatever else is wrong), or telekinesis so I don't have to pull pts up physically.
