  2. How long was your initial orientation to the ER?
    I'm interviewing for an ER job later this week. I've been a nurse for six months and I was wondering, if they did take a chance on me, how much orientation could I expect as a nurse with some...

  3. When to leave Med-surg?
    I applied to another ER job on the advice of a friend who works there. I was called on Tuesday to set up an interview, but I didn't receive the message until Thursday. I don't know if I can still...

  5. Still Raw: Six months after graduation, five months after employment
    I'm at the same point you're at. I was a CNA at my hospital prior to getting my RN job here. I had a great preceptorship though...but it was certainly different from what I was thrown into. During my...

  6. When to leave Med-surg?
    I started around May/June this year. I knew med-surg was never where I wanted to be, or even start at. I preferred cardiac and wanted to start at PCU, though I believe it would be difficult to...

  7. Having a hard time saying 'no' to working overtime
    I don't think my floor could function without everybody pulling OT. Most core staff almost seems required to do overtime once per pay period.

  8. Areas of nursing less stressful than hospital?
    I've been working as an RN on the med-surg unit since June. Everything was fine up until recently when they changed our ratios. For last few weeks I've had panic attacks each night, it's now so bad...

  11. PSA healthcare "Assessment Center"
    Not much in way of pay. $4 less/hr than I make at the hospital. But I figure it's worth it for the peds experience. 1 12 hr shift of training per pt. More PDN than skilled visits.

  16. Just accepted a new job... then my dream job called...
    If it's really your dream, I'd just quit the first job, but expect to be placed on the "do not rehire" list. Best of luck on your interview, and congrats on getting that first job!

  17. My Career options after graduation
    Sounds like a nice, relatively stress free job compared to the hospital. I assume you get benefits as well? I'd keep that public health job, they're hard to come by.

  19. Pediatric Home Health as a New Grad?
    Thank you! I have started at a hospital and am working through my preceptorship there. There's no pediatric, NICU, or L&D unit at any of the local sister hospitals, which sucks, but I'm enjoying...

    I failed the first time too! The second time around I went over each and every skill and memorized them back and front. The second time I got much easier skills.

  24. Do you want to be jobless after nursing school? I didn't think so...
    Your CNA experience only changes your starting pay rate. It doesn't give you actual RN experience, you're still considered a new grad, but you get paid like you have some experience.

    Or you could just start working as a PCT/CNA right now. There are some hospitals that will give a year of RN experience for every 2 years of CNA experience and you could start off your hourly pay...
