  1. splitting jobs between sides of isolette
    In my first job, the bottom end of the incubator was considered the "dirty" end (makes sense, if you think about it!) and the top was the "clean." My current job doesn't adhere to any such...

  2. New Grad in NICU Orientation
    Is there any NICU nurse (or really, any nurse in general) who didn't feel petrified during their orientation? I know I was. Never felt on top of things, constantly confused and running behind, and...

  3. RT a good path towards becoming NICU RN?
    Bit harsh. I doubt the average RT has any worse hand hygiene than the average RN. (Come on, we all know it's the surgeons who are the problem there... ;) ) I just have to disagree with...

  5. Do I have a chance? Please help.. about UK NMC application
    I think the process was revised fairly recently; at any rate, yes, you do have to take the IELTS now if you're applying from outside the EU.

  6. Do I have a chance? Please help.. about UK NMC application
    The gap shouldn't make a difference to the NMC provided you have the requisite experience; potential employers may ask about it, though.

  7. Clinical hours short of NMC suggestion?
    Not sure how "I'm happy to answer your questions" can possibly be misconstrued as a refusal to offer assistance, but okay. BabyRN has pretty much covered all my possible responses (except for the...

    I'm happy to answer your questions, just would rather not do so in an open forum. 15 posts isn't too hard to manage, then we can chat.

  10. Getting a manager to notice me and offer me a job
    Er, not to be rude, but -- that's how interviews work? You said you've already asked them why you weren't hired and they told you that other candidates were "better," so I'm guessing they hired one...

  11. Any healthcare jobs that don't require certification?
    What babyRN said. You can't just move to the UK and get a job. They'll grant you leave for up to six months as a visitor, during which time you are prohibited from seeking employment or recourse to...

    Unfortunately, the NMC currently do not accept any degree other than the traditional BSN. Diplomas, associate degrees, and accelerated BSNs are not considered adequate. Trained outside Europe |...

  15. Journey of a foreign nurse getting licensure
    The dates listed are the days you spend physically in class. They make up for the fact that this is clearly not 120 hours of classtime by making you fill out a workbook that takes a week or more to...

    Lord no, that would've been insanely expensive. The reason why they spread out the days like that is because technically, you're supposed to be spending something like 120 hours in the class. ...

    Have you already sat the NCLEX? If not, there may be a way to change your initial application from CA to FL. If you've already taken the test, I think you'll have to wait until you're properly...

  21. NMC registration processing times
    The ONP is more or less straightforward, but be forewarned, it's actually a lot more work than they let on. You'll probably want to allot at least a full week to complete that workbook, since it's...
