  1. What are other facilities doing for clinical orientation?
    And P.S. HouTx - I agree with majority of your post, but I am leaving my current company because of the company, not my manager. My team is great, but my company is not able or willing to provide...

  7. I think my nurses are on the verge of mutiny!
    Thanks casi! You are right on target. I am working with pharmacy to help reduce some of these meds, but I get such push back from our physician and NP. Advocating for patients is sometimes more...

    Let me let this be known too- I too can come off wrong in posts, of course! I think venting in here is just fine! My point was that if you want other people to "hear" you, then posting what I...

  11. What are other facilities doing for clinical orientation?
    Do some research on the "onboarding" process also. It has been around a while, but more facilities are starting to adopt it. The purpose of onboarding is to get staff to buy in to the company mission...

  15. Support for ADN's required to secure their BSN lacking
    P.S. I completely agree with your point about the AAS-RN. I absolutely did not look at it that way. Remember, I got a diploma, which is considered less than an ADN, so it wouldn't make sense for me...
