  7. One Day I Will Be Seizure Free!

  8. One Day I Will Be Seizure Free!
    Kudos to you!!! What a story! I find the most frustrating part of seizures is the drug manipulation it takes. My husband had been on countless now with no control. I also get tired of the lack of...

    Interesting. If you would like, send me the name of the facility and I can do some digging. I'm hoping someone shows up this way. My guess is still mid to upper twenties, as that's pretty standard in...

    Did you look at SEIU1199NW or WSNA website? Most new grads average mid to upper twenties, but again, depends on contract if they are union and such. HTH

    Educate please. I was under the impression when other employers come calling, all they could say was if the person would be a candidate for rehire.

  17. Stop the (Deskilling) Merry-Go-Round, I Want to Get OFF!
    Yeah, but why the change? We did hundreds..hundreds of questions and it was rare to have an easy question. You HAD to study to pass the old NCLEX. I still don't buy that you can assess competency in...

    How can you judge the ability to practice safely with only 75 questions?? Heck, my certification test for med/surg was a 150 questions, and I had to answer every single one. No computer shut off...

    Seriously try it. Submit under any of them. Doesn't matter and then open up each one and see the scores. Sometimes IE and Chrome would be the same and Safari off by a point or two. I never knew which...

    I worked with a nurse who refers to baths and toileting as CNA work. Totally blew me away. You can find out so much about your patient if you actually touch them beyond a simple assessment of breath...
