  1. NICU vs Med Surg
    What do you want to do? Where do you want to work? NICU and Med-surg are completely different areas. You must be toward either one of those. I don't believe one can apply to both positions and feel...

  3. thermoregulation in the neonate
    Breaking the latch and stopping the breastfeeding for a bath is a very wrong practice and a big no no. At least in my hospital, you would get a warning from the manager if this was complained by mom....

  5. Intimidated new NICU nurse
    I am not a new grad. I have almost 3.5 years of experience. But we do have many new grads starting in the NICU. This is in KY. It is still very competitive and hard to get into. You may have to start...

  6. Intimidated new NICU nurse
    Thank you all. I had my first shift in the unit the other day. My preceptor was satisfied with me; she liked that I was very eager to learn it all. I just don't want to miss anything. I am doing...

  8. L&d or critical care to get in NICU
    I would also say L&D. You will get familiar with babies and will have NRP. Plus, you will be an internal candidate once you apply which will be an advantage for you. You can better get a hold of NICU...

  10. Experience vs. No Experience
    I thought she would be smart enough to know that job market is tough, and most people don't get to start in their dream unit. She could take the ortho job offer, make experience and connections...

  11. Would you deliver your baby at your place of employment?
    I work PP. So, I would not prefer to be there as a pp patient, because I don't want my coworkers seeing my private, doing fundal checks, seeing my chart and stuff. I would be embarrassed when I was...

  12. Please critique my Cover Letter been rejected too many times
    Way to long to read. I even had a challenge reading it. I can't imagine a manager, reading tons of cover letters, would want to read this long of a cover letter. Keep it short, include the essential...

    I am in grad school to earn my MSN. Every nursing book that I have read ever since ADN nursing school states that there is a nursing shortage. And I do see that there is a shortage for BSN and...

  15. Have to start in L&D first before post-partum??
    I think they would go on to the next candidate who has no issues getting the position they need someone in. Saying such a thing doesn't sound favorable. I would recommend that apply for pp positions.

  16. Telemetry to mother baby unit
    I do mother/baby after telemetry too. Just tell them you are very interested in learning and doing this. That enthusiasm amazed my manager and she hired me.

    What I meant is that the administration could have done something and acted like they found that out through observation or family complaint, etc rather than a new employee complaint. But if you have...

    You definitely did the right thing. But what I don't understand is why this was made known to everybody in the facility. They could have suspended her without letting everybody know that YOU reported...

  25. Is there any hope for the BSN who never had experience to get a job?
    You are an old new grad which I think is one of the unluckiest situations to be in. I think you will have a lesser chance, but it is not impossible. Good luck.
