  2. Would you deliver your baby at your place of employment?
    I work PP. So, I would not prefer to be there as a pp patient, because I don't want my coworkers seeing my private, doing fundal checks, seeing my chart and stuff. I would be embarrassed when I was...

  6. Have to start in L&D first before post-partum??
    I think they would go on to the next candidate who has no issues getting the position they need someone in. Saying such a thing doesn't sound favorable. I would recommend that apply for pp positions.

  7. Telemetry to mother baby unit
    I do mother/baby after telemetry too. Just tell them you are very interested in learning and doing this. That enthusiasm amazed my manager and she hired me.

    What I meant is that the administration could have done something and acted like they found that out through observation or family complaint, etc rather than a new employee complaint. But if you have...

    You definitely did the right thing. But what I don't understand is why this was made known to everybody in the facility. They could have suspended her without letting everybody know that YOU reported...

  16. Is there any hope for the BSN who never had experience to get a job?
    You are an old new grad which I think is one of the unluckiest situations to be in. I think you will have a lesser chance, but it is not impossible. Good luck.

    Renal is the hardest I think. I don't know what people meant by "impossible". Impossible to do what?

  21. Diploma vs Associates degree school?
    Getting associates is a better idea in the long run. First, it is a degree after all that required some other basic classes. Also, it counts much more if you want to go up to higher degrees. With...

  22. getting a C in 2 pre- reqs for nursing.
    I would be worried. Nursing schools are competitive nationwide. My school for one closed at 4.0, 3 years ago. I think B average is a little low for nursing school.
