  1. Obamacare and Informatics
    First off, yes, OR experience counts just like any other. In fact, in my department we have had difficulty finding someone with expertise in that area and would welcome it. Some of the biggest...

  2. Curious with nursing informatics specialty to new grada
    I have seen both sides of this. I think it should be required to have nursing experience, particularly in a hospital setting, to specialize in informatics. So much of what we do is about making the...

  5. Why are some nurses not grateful for my job?
    I must have worked in an unusual unit, because I can honestly say I'm surprised to hear that anyone doesn't appreciate a patient sitter. We got them so rarely and needed them so often that we treated...

  6. Why are some nurses not grateful for my job?
    Maybe you're taking it too personally. Perhaps the comment was in regard to that particular patient and not that a sitter isn't necessary ever. I've worked ICU, and believe me, when we have a...

  7. Is there EPIC class for individual RNs
    I'm curious why you chose Epic. Are you sure you'll be working in a facility that uses it? My facility uses McKesson, the one across the street from us uses Meditech, and the one 20 miles away uses...

  8. do you have to be strong to be a transporter?
    Just normal strength with no issues like back problems should be able to handle it. I'm not particularly strong even though I'm not a 100 lb girl (I'm a bigger girl than that!), but those carts are...

  10. was i unprofessional? (quick story)
    It was unprofessional. It seems perfectly logical to me for the CN to load herself up with patients so that she doesn't have to take an admission, because she's got additional responsibilities. One...

  11. Made an error :'( unable to move on
    The doctor is an ass for shaming you that way. If I had a dollar for every time I called a doctor before I realized I already had a PRN (when I was new), I'd be able to buy dinner at Outback. ...

    I would just highlight that you have extensive experience with vent dependent patient, including ventilator troubleshooting, if that's the case.

  13. Living with poo
    Two things - you are a little overly worried (just a little, though, not crazy) and your coworkers seem to have some pretty careless, disgusting behaviors. Bleh.

  14. Mandated Flu vaccine?
    At our facility, when you show up for your free mandated flu shot there is a paper that you fill out that asks if you had a reaction before. You can check yes and a box that says "Refused due to...

  16. Intraosseous Infusions- anyone using it yet?
    We've been talking about it and I keep hearing it's going to become more of a standard, but it hasn't yet. At least, not in my facility.

  17. Need advice! Torn over flu vaccine
    Can't give advice, but I remember how worried I was about catching things like MRSA when I was a student, and when I think back on it I feel pretty silly. Half of my unit was pregnant for the last 3...

    I would be completely comfortable doing this. I would just ask the doctor, "I've seen symptoms like these before and I was just wondering what your thoughts are about the possibility of XYZ..." ...

  20. How'd you know when you were ready to get your MSN?
    You're never ready, just like you're never ready to have kids. There's always life, job, family, money issues to get in the way. So, you know you're ready when you know it's what you want and why...

    You said a lot of great things that really just boil down to the fact that a little common courtesy goes a long way. I do not recommend the quoted action, though, because on the surface it may seem...

  22. Anyone left nursing TOTALLY...what are you doing now?
    I don't know if this counts as being totally out of nursing, but about a year ago I was hired to start a clinical informatics department at my facility. I have found that this is truly my calling...

    I'm not trying to be an ass here, but honestly it's not "normal" to get a gusher. You can improve that technique. Unless I'm using a large guage cath, I rarely get more than a drip or two escaping...
