  1. How long do you wait from graduating nursing school to further your education?
    I waited a year, which was a great decision on my part. The learning curve is pretty steep on my unit and I think adding coursework to that crucial first year would've been too much stress for me....

  2. Oncology Nurse Burnout?
    I don't think your issues stem from being an oncology nurse - that schedule is brutal! A few chosen ones are able to flip their schedules all around without issue, but most people need an established...

  3. "I need to eat, I'm a diabetic!"
    As a diabetic (my endo classes me as "nonspecific" because I have traits of both types - it's made my treatment plan a load of fun!), I'd like to launch into a rant about the disease process and how...

  4. Ebola Nursing Survey:  to Quarantine or Not to Quarantine
    I'm just now catching up on this. I work for a pretty big hospital so we have the staff to do this. Smaller places? Not so much. We can do it even though it isn't necessary. As you can see from this...

  5. Ebola Nursing Survey:  to Quarantine or Not to Quarantine
    This has been a most interesting read..... Until I see some compelling evidence that supports mandatory quarantine for anyone that may have come into contact with someone that can possibly have...

  6. Fluids with + KCl
    We use K fluids all the time - in fact I usually question if the fluids don't have it! My population is hem/onc, though....and they are notorious for electrolyte imbalances, particularly during chemo...

    Community was one of my fave classes....although for the life of me, I can't remember what they substituted for the windshield survey. It wasn't nearly as tedious as that assignment sounded! 4510 is...

  8. PRCM Business Comm
    When I took it with her, the entire class was posted at the beginning. From what I've read, it looks like she made some major changes to it so you might want to ask. How exciting to almost be done!...

  9. PCNB Exam 2014
    Is this for CPN? If so, just do the practice questions on PNCB's site. Your employer (assuming you work in a peds facility) should have resources for it as well. The test wasn't bad at all. I'm in a...

  11. Life after 4510...
    Lots of writing, but not necessarily papers. I feel like my DB posts qualified as papers without a title page.

  13. Recently accepted, advice please!
    4600 isn't hard, but I would recommend taking it alone or with a non nursing class. 4600 and your junior level comp class would be good. I think diversity, community, gero, and family were the...

  14. Want to apply to OU, so confused
    You need to get a degree audit done so you can determine what prior classes will transfer for credit. That can't be done until you send all your official transcripts to OU. I think the in state/out...

  16. NRSE 4600 ICProject
    It's a 5 week project. If they expect us to actually implement change at our workplace in that amount of time - considering the final project isn't due until week 5 - they are nuts. I sent out some...

  17. Mistakes as a new pediatric oncology RN
    Maybe a cyclosporine infusion? We use a specific lumen for that particular drug. Otherwise, I'm confused about the line contamination thing. If it was your standard antibiotics, you're supposed to...

  18. peds hematology/oncology career
    Acute care experience in a hospital is a huge advantage. Your years in peds are great, too - you know how to relate to kids and their families. One of the unique things about peds hem/onc is you take...

    They've changed this class a lot since I took it! Do the virtual assessments replace the ridiculous 15+ page actual assessments? If so....man you guys lucked out!

    Yes....it's definitely time consuming! I work nights, so I'm working on the ICP tonight and all day tomorrow. I just keep counting down in my head - 3 more weeks!

    The key is to have a topic that interests you, and that has lots of research behind it. Did you do okay on week 1? I'm just starting the week 2 portion.

    I'm just shy of 5'10, and swear by Koi's whole line. Naturally, one of the most expensive is the one that fits me the best! I have long muscular legs, and their tall lengths have fit me perfectly...
