  4. What exactly can externs do at your facility?
    Just wondering what the role of a nurse extern is at different facilities. At mine they are different than nurse interns or residents - basically the role and duties of an AUA.

  6. Any tips for a newly certified CNA? :)
    The fact that you are a nursing student definitely helps. My clinical director actually will only hire those with no experience if they are in nursing school. That's how I got the job and nearly all...

  7. I can't be excited
    I have always offered my help to my friends and others. Some aren't so welcoming of the help while others are. I understand that others do struggle and I have struggled as well, (I barely passed 3...

  9. I can't be excited
    because I made an A this semester and all of my friends barely passed, a few of them failed and I can't be excited to anyone except myself and it sucks. In nursing school it feels like you are the...

  11. Have you ever had fellow students make you feel really stupid and incompetent?
    That has not happened to me, but I know how you feel about being rusty in fundamental skills. I have never done a foley and at the moment couldn't tell you exactly how but I can draw blood great and...

  12. Another vent about nurse vs aide
    All of the nurses I have worked with on my floor, which is ortho, rely on aides to get vitals. I have had them ask me to take it manually as well, and most of them expect you to do it if the numbers...

  13. Another vent about nurse vs aide
    I've never heard that the RN has to do the vitals...at the hospital I work at the aides are the ones getting them most of the time. Hmm. You're right, I did feel like it was obvious that I needed...

  14. Another vent about nurse vs aide
    I just don't understand nurses that are so utterly oblivious to all the work that aides do. I understand that meds need to be passed and you have to call the doctor and do a million other things but...

  17. Working while in nursing school
    I'm kind of on the fence about it. I work part time as an NA and sometimes I wish I didn't due to having to cram studying in where I can, but then again I'm also the type to procrastinate, so as...

  18. First time CNA
    Yes I agree, three shifts is not enough. It took me about 5 to understand the routine and then a couple more to do it myself within the time limit I needed to get things done in. I would observe for...

    They have to be solid white or black. They used to have us just wear white shoes but they changed it, thank goodness because the all white shoes looked really dumb with orange and black. I don't...

    Well, I would do the same thing and follow what they say. But after first semester, the design of the pants and top aren't of much concern to the instructors as long as they have the patches. Glad...

    I feel like each time I go to clinical I learn more and more about communication and how important it is, with patients and staff as well. It's so easy to misinterpret one little thing that will...

  23. BP cuff not required?!
    Not odd at all. They will probably have them in school for when you learn and in the hospital you will usually use a dynamap if you have to take a BP. Not to say you shouldn't learn, and getting one...

    Yes! I hate the tops at the bookstore because of no front lower pockets and they are so baggy! Lol. But I think the lady at the bookstore will sew them on a different top as well, but not sure..
