  4. Would you commute an hour to a job you wanted?
    What did you decide, @nursebythesea? I am in a similar position while job hunting. How far is too far for that dream job? I'm worried about falling asleep on the way home from night shift. ...

  5. Neonatal NP??
    See, this is what the problem is for me though. I would LOVE to go back to school for NNP. But I can not get hired in NICU without NICU experience. I have been applying for 7 years. I know that...

  6. Why do aspiring CRNAs change their goals?
    Because at first I would have had to take the GRE or MAT, and hated studying for those tests and never scheduled either. Because I waited too long to go back to school. Because I had kids. Because...

  7. Bullying like I am back in middle school
    I've been there, done that. Bullying is widespread in nursing. At one job, it was okay for a while for me, while everyone else complained about it. Then I spoke up about something I didn't think...

  8. Co-worker asked how much I make an hour
    Although it is inappropriate to ask this, it's usually not confidential what new grads make at a facility. She could have called HR and asked herself. IT should be the same exact rate for all new...

  9. Transitioning to L&D after med-surg
    I went into a broader general area after school but IMHO I think you should specialize right away if that's what you want. I have found it difficult to transfer into another specialty. I see new...

  11. Failed the pre-employment talent screening test
    I suspect I don't get calls for some jobs because of these personality tests. I think I always answer them okay. But when I don't even get called in for an interview, it makes me wonder. I guess...

  12. Why is Pit started on spontaneous labor?
    I agree it's overused. With my own children, it was needed for two of them (induction). However, with the one pregnancy I arrived at 6 cm after laboring at home. They put me on pit bc the one...

  13. Nitrous Oxide use may come back to the US for labor pain management!!
    Yes, I agree with above. The reason it went away? Probably because the patients were brainwashed by the medical community that epidurals and pharmaceuticals were the way to go. No profits mean no...

    I'm baffled when people go in for surgery FROM HOME who have not bathed or showered or even washed their hands in a sink... apparently in a week. Seriously?

    I think it's doable. Did you ask your present job to go down to part time and they said no? What about going on interviews for PT and NOT telling them that you are in a NP program? As for the 3...

    I have to agree with everyone. It's not a big deal and this happens all the time. She doesn't have too much time on her hands. People do this a lot. She most likely wasn't "verifying that you...
