  1. New Grad RN
    New Hampshire seems to be looking for nurses if you are willing to commute there (new grads too!). My friend commutes to Southern NH and it takes him about 45 minutes, pretty reasonable. Take a look...

  3. Anyone who works at MGH?

  4. New grad, passed NCLEX...what steps do I need to take to become a burn nurse?

  9. Dressing question
    I can give a little insight into this. A wet to dry 4x4 covered with a tegaderm would not be the proper way to dress that. The tegaderm does not allow the absess to dry out at all (because ultimately...

  10. Inaccurate respiratory rates
    Honestly as frustrating as it seems, I can understand where some of the CNA/PCTs are coming from. Some of them are assigned to take vital signs q4 for an entire unit, which may include 30+ patients...
