  1. Malpractice Insurance
    Hahaha, I used to work at Womack. So glad I PCS'd. However, the way lawsuits against the government/military work is that the military/government pays, regardless. Unless there was gross...

  2. New OB nurse
    Somebody said this to me when I was getting discouraged as a new OB nurse and it was tremendously helpful. I have since passed it on to several people at work. The first 50-100 cervical checks are...

  3. Malpractice Insurance
    This isn't exactly military specific, but I couldn't justify putting it anywhere else. I have been in the military 18 years, albeit not all as a nurse, and have never had the need for malpractice...

  4. wasting of narcs in pacu
    Our PACU has no spot to secure medications between doses. I suppose we could waste after each dose, but there is a lot of discussion at our facility about unnecessary waste. For example, Fentanyl...

  5. The youngest new mother's you've seen
    The youngest I've seen is 14. She was just in last month. Turns out her step-father was the dad and they were having an affair. We think the mother knew, but once the teen admitted it to her PP...

  6. To the nurses who work on the Peds/maternity floor: what are the NA roles?
    One hospital where I worked had CNAs. They did primarily VS, but we were a very busy unit and finally started making better use of the resource. So, in addition, they also did PP ambulation,...

  8. What I want vs. reality
    I think it depends entirely on the hiring climate where you live/work. That said, if I were hiring and I had two otherwise equal applicants, one who had LTC experience and one who had med-surg...

  9. Question about men in labor/delivery and nursery.
    I agree with this. It applies to men and women. Our labor staff is comprised of about 32 RNs, a few of whom are part-time. Four of those 32 are men, all of whom work full-time. The only complaint...

  10. VE prior to epidural
    We don't have a policy on it, so it depends on the patient. If she is giving me signs that she is progressing quickly, I might do one before only to help the CRNA determine if perhaps an intrathecal...

  12. interesting article
    While I love it, this article is missing something that most providers require in their professional reading, references. And statistics. And peer reviews. And... Obviously, it is difficult to...

  13. A Question about GTPAL (Pregnancy Codes).
    This. The ONLY place that multiples are recorded as such is under the L of TPAL. It's usually still self-explanatory, unless a woman has more than one set of multiples, then you have to start asking...

  15. Join as BSN or as MSN?
    That depends. How long do you want to spend in the military? Can you afford to pay for your own grad degree? Are you sure you want an MSN that leads to advanced practice? Can you get an RN job...

    Does anybody know whether working AP and post-partum counts as experience for the exam? Nurses where I work who already have their RNC are saying that it does. The web site is a little vague on what...
