  5. What is your opinion on getting the flu shot?
    It is extremely rare, I know, but I know a patient who got Guillain barre syndrome after the shot. If a vaccine is really necessary, I'll get it. But the flu shot? As a fairly healthy person with no...

  6. What is your opinion on getting the flu shot?
    HealthyNurse, thanks for the vaccine ingredients calculator link! I looked at it, and actually at least 1 brand of single-dose flu vaccine (Novartis) has thimersol (mercury) in it. And a lot of them...

  7. Changing to a non-nursing career?
    If you're able to insert IVs so well, have you considered applying for Phlebotomist positions? Seems like a job that doesn't require heavy lifting or a lot of the things nurses hate about their jobs....

    I did PD in the past. You could look up more info on ventilator care (alarms, etc.), and videos on any other skills your clients have that you're not that comfortable with. Maybe review basics on...

    Yes, I took that course, although it was after I finished my school nursing job. It was a 2 day course, and I didn't have to study beforehand. I think it would be helpful for school nurses, and it's...

  10. Why are we against suicide?
    Here's my point of view.: One of the basic things in man is the fight to stay alive. Unless the person has a terminal illness (or is very elderly with general poor health) and has now accepted the...

  12. Home Health Job???
    FYI: This sounds like private-duty home care, so you may get more supplies in that section rather than this "home Health" section which is for intermittent visits. What to expect? You will most...

  13. Difference in pay between Seattle, Tacoma and Vancouver
    I don't know about the pay scale for sure, but it's probably higher in Seattle than Vancouver. You could try googling nurse salary and location; they might have that on Indeed. The most important,...

  18. 1 year old RN seeking advise for obtaining a job.
    I'm not sure about whether no medical setting would hire you as an LPN or CNA due to liability issues. I have interviewed for an LPN position in the past, when I was an R.N., so some settings may be...

  23. EXP ADN RN looking to move to Tacoma area..
    What will be helpful is that you have 5 years of hospital experience: that may indeed open doors. On the other hand, not having your BSN will be a drawback. According to the official sources I looked...
