    I'm surprised that you need an order to mix it with lidocaine at your facility. As to your Q, I've always wondered of it really helps and kind of doubt it, but who knows!

  8. Taking the CEN to get hired at a trauma center
    I would take ACLS & PALS instead. The CEN, in my opinion, doesn't mean a whole lot without any experience to back it up.

  19. What's the longest er  wait time you have Even seen
    You just don't get it, do you? You think that since you're not that sick it shouldn't take that long. No, honey, that's not how it works. It's called the emergency room, not the clinic room.

    That's a very strict rule at my ER. It's a JCAHO thing. In my opinion, it leads to dehydration among nursing staff, which is very dangerous. Not trying to give TMI, but there have been dozens of...

  25. TNCC/ENPC for a new grad?
    It seems to me that enpc would be invaluable preparation for cpen?? I haven't taken either yet, so maybe I'm wrong, but I wouldn't think it would be "one or the other."
