  1. OR RN for 5 yrs: Do I qualify for UM?...
    I did apply. Haven't heard back, however... I just learned that I have to be employed here 90 days before I can apply for another position in the system. :/ So... I will have to wait.

  5. OR RN for 5 yrs: Do I qualify for UM?...
    Thanks for the responses. I am just sort of burned out. I don't want to take call anymore because we want to move more than 30 minutes away from work, and I don't know what other area of nursing I...

  6. Overwhelmed
    It is worth it to hang in there a little while longer! There will be a time when over night one day it will be like 'Aha!' I guess I can't 100% guarantee you will feel that way, but I would feel...

  8. Transplant Team in your OR?
    We don't have a dedicated transplant (kidney) team where we are (the VA). There is a specialty team for urology, but the on-call crew who's assigned are the ones who do the transplants. :)

  9. OR RN for 5 yrs: Do I qualify for UM?...
    Hi - I've been an RN in an inpatient OR for 5 years, have a BSN, and oooodles of customer service and clerical experience prior to that. I am more of a pro at customer service than I probably am...

  10. Why I work as an OR RN
    I went through nursing school and chose a BSN to be closer to getting an MSN, but mainly because I've wanted a bachelor's degree ever since I was 8. When I finally decided to become a RN (when I was...

  13. VA Nursing
    Wish this got replies, lol.... I am in pretty much the same boat - my spouse who isn't a nurse thinks the "smart" thing to do is take the VA job. When I love my comfy ASC job where my health...

  14. how soon to transfer within VA
    I knew what you meant, original poster. Yes, "transfers" in any company I've worked in have to be applied for. Even if you are definitely getting the job, you still have to go through the...

  15. Leave VA or Stay
    I am not sure about your VA, but ones with "waiting list" issues are hiring a lot more people... others might be, too... I know mine is. So you might see ICU jobs open up for you when the patient...

  16. Nashville General Hospital - Need Input
    I know this is from December, but since no one replied... I used to work there. I personally loved it, I worked in the O.R. though and I left because I was on call and wanted something different. ...

  17. On Call ?
    I hate taking call but I deal with it to work in the O.R. :) And I am not the only one like this. And I am a good nurse. My first OR job, I took call one weekend day (usually Sunday) every 6...

  18. Operating Room Nurses
    I remember everyone telling me that - "get the med/surg experience". But I went straight to the O.R. and if I had to work med/surg (please, no...), I have no doubts I could pick it up. It's...

    I was a circulator straight out of nursing school. You've got half your experience already...lol. Documentation, to me, is kind of the easiest part, because that will be the same for every case...

  21. vanderbilt pay/benefits
    mee9mee9, I think the PCTs and "Care Partners" are the same thing. I have heard these people called "Care Partners", and asked a Vandy employee what that is, and they say "nurse techs" or "CNAs". ...

  22. BSN Only?  Give me a break!!
    It's ridiculous that they're requiring a BSN out of you when you're an RN and already have a BS in something else. And the only difference I see in a BSN versus an ADN or anything else is all the...

  23. CT Supreme Court Decision: Teen can't refuse Chemo
    I don't like the coercion, either. Just wish she'd do it; like someone else said - it's so treatable. Another question I have is, why'd her mom take her to the doctor in the first place if,...

    For the OR I'd also read up on (or remember from before) transferring patients from stretcher to OR bed and back - using the roller or slider boards. Make sure the brakes are on the beds and safety...
