  1. New job and looking for another one
    I totally get the notion of looking to supplement your income. HOWEVER, my advice is to cool your jets and get settled in to your new position for a bit before you immediately look to add another...

  3. Which is a better path?
    Well, I know ICU nurses at our hospital who've come from the floor but we've had a number go from the ED to the ICUs. At least in our facility, the ED would be much better choice because we...

  4. Leaving my job
    The longer, the better. IMO, the best approach is to offer up a long notice (say, 1 month) along with a request that they permit you to leave earlier if they're able.

    Well, I have no idea what they're looking for and you haven't provided a clear problem statement... morphine would never be ordered by volume. You say that you're going to give 0.2 mL which, given...

  9. Anyone else feel this way?
    As with all diversity, it changes the dynamic of the unit. With certain patients, it's often helpful to have men who can assume the assignment. This is typically with male patients who are...

  10. Job prospect for males
    I guarantee you, your gender has nothing to do with your lack of job offers. There are lots of men in nursing, particularly in the ED and ICUs. You say you've applied for a dozen jobs... that's...

  11. Open Fracture During CPR
    In my mind, it is actually "music" although "song" works as well. When I first submitted the username, "music" is what I was thinking.

    The only minor that matters at all is one in a foreign language, presuming that you've acquired that language during your studies. If you eventually want to be a nurse manager after acquiring...

  15. Should urine catheterization hurt?
    Anecdotally, every time I've seen a nurse use lido jelly, they don't give it any time to work and then conclude, "oh, it doesn't make any difference." The research studies that I've read typically...

  16. I received this email from a professor. I was a little shocked. Opinon?
    Efficiency, mostly. If it's one individual, then I can see addressing it with them... if there are several, I'd opt for a blanket warning... and then hold each and every person responsible from then...

  20. ACLS as a student?
    It wasn't until my second ACLS recertification that it all started to make sense. The difference: Repetition and experience. If you can afford to take a face-to-face ACLS class, taught by an...

  25. I received this email from a professor. I was a little shocked. Opinon?
    I don't think students are in a position to easily toss around the term, "unprofessional" given that they're not professionals themselves. There is a faction of nursing which parallels the...
