  1. CPR-HCP or BCLS
    There is a difference between BLS and CPR-HCP. The first one is the same course anybody off the street would take. The second is aimed at health care providers. So it includes things like...

  2. Scenarios for interview
    Overall, you did very well! #1) You could add a laser level for ensuring the EVD - if placed - is at the correct height. Saline only for IV fluids, mixing your drips and so on. Sandbags for...

  3. Cultural assessment
    I would wager that there ARE IENs working at the hospital where you're doing your placement. Check the medicine units, the surgical units and the ORs. There are probably IENs working at the long-term...

  4. Scenarios for interview
    I'll bite... 1) You're setting up for an admission. The patient is an 8 year old post MVC with a traumatic brain injury. What will you have ready at your bedside? 2) Your patient is a 9 month...

  5. what step to do next
    Let's get one thing straight. You resigned. You are not "in the system" as an employee and you owe nothing to that employer. The DON is making it so that if you decide you CAN go back that there...

  6. what step to do next
    I'm sorry to hear you're in this situation but I'm really unsure what you're asking. Are you looking for approval that you quit your job to care for your mother when she broke her arm (although I'm...

  8. Losing a patient in home nursing
    Welcome to allnurses.com, Sarah. I'm so sorry that your very first post here is such a sad one, but you've come to a good place for support. The first patient we lose is always the hardest, most...

  9. BSN graduate with no license
    JustBeachy is correct. The exam is the very last step in the process; you have to meet all the criteria for registration set out by the Colleges of Nursing (now screened through the NNAS) - which...

  10. Hospitals Firing Seasoned Nurses: Nurses FIGHT Back!
    That's all true, but can be looked at another way. There IS a nursing shortage - of nurses at the bedside all due to the posted-but-unfilled vacancies we've talked about. And our cause isn't helped...

  11. OMG, I cannot believe it...I need PICU interview tips!
    Peds is that way everywhere. It's too small a specialty for there to be lots of vacancies. Just look at any major hospital system's job postings and you'll see about 20 adult-care positions to every...

    That's a HUGE range of things you're looking for. There's no way it would all fit into the scope of this website. For cardiac defects you could look at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital's website....

  13. **POLL** New 1st Year RN Salary
    Don't be fooled. That 1:1 assignment might keep you running harder than any 1:5 on a peds inpatient unit. I've had shifts when I didn't even have time to think about what I was doing, I just did it. ...

  14. OMG, I cannot believe it...I need PICU interview tips!
    I really don't think they missed anything, and I don't think they would have set up an interview with you just for practice. I don't have a BSN and I have no intention of getting one either. It...

  15. Hospitals Firing Seasoned Nurses: Nurses FIGHT Back!
    This is exactly where my unit is now. I work part time due to some personal and health issues; my rotation is really unbalanced so I have stretches of as many as 16 days where I don't work at all....

  16. OMG, I cannot believe it...I need PICU interview tips!
    Most often they'll interview the top 3 or 4 people based on their resumes, sometimes a few more. They look for those keywords I mentioned, and then read how the keywords fit into the overall package....

    I don't think taking time off for your baby will be a huge hindrance. Most people who slag PDNs have no idea what that job involves. It's what I was doing just before I got my first hospital job...

  19. OMG, I cannot believe it...I need PICU interview tips!
    My over-riding reason for never hitting "submit" when there's a transport posting up is that we cover such a large area (see the map below) that some of our transports run well over 12 hours. Our...

  20. Peds CVICU vs NICU
    I can explain why the cardiac surgery kiddos go from the OR to PCICU and not back to NICU. Although many CV surgery patients are neonates, probably 1/3 of them are not. Rather than divide the...

  21. Has anyone trasferred education from WGU Western Governors University into Canada?
    Perhaps your best course of action right now would be to contact CRNBC (College of Registered Nurses British Columbia) and ask them about credentials from WGU. NNAS hasn't been up and running very...
