  1. Help, question about a patient
    This, this, this. Anyone working in psych should make an effort to keep up their medical-based nursing knowledge because of situations just like this. Even though treatments and O2 are on...

  3. Pay for parking?
    I pay $1.25 per pay period (every 2 weeks). Most of the time I actually park in the lot/garage too.

    Moved to the Licensure with a Criminal History forum. Be advised that this is a moderated forum and all responses are reviewed before being published, so it may take a bit before posts appear.

  5. museum for psych rotation
    I agree, it does. I do not agree with nor condone the school's practices, but the fact is that the students are AOx4 adults and should know that if something sounds too good to be true, it...

  6. ANA petitions Feds (educ. funding) for 1.1 million more RN's within 8 yrs.
    That's great and all, but it's pointless if hospitals and other organizations aren't creating the jobs to go with them. Do they really think employers are so eager to fill the gap left by a...

  7. Too much stuff behind ID badge!!
    I don't know what I'm required to have on my badge. But recently I removed everything but my ID and my RN placard because I got tired of it being weighed down. I know all the codes and RACE/PASS by...

  8. Discrimination Against ER Nurses?
    OP: you are not being discriminated against. First, being an ED nurse is not a protected class. Second, if they are looking for someone with a certain level of m/s or tele experience and you don't...

  9. The Importance of Backing Up Your Work
    Once a month (I should probably do it more frequently), I back up my important documents and pictures on a 64 GB jump drive that I store separately from my computer.

  10. When you are at clinicals
    The one time I want to see students confined to the break room is during a code for patient violence/acting out. Things can be very unpredictable during such codes, and the last thing I need to deal...

  11. When you are at clinicals
    I notice this a lot in psych: students tending to hide out in the lounge either because they are nervous about being on the floor, or don't want to be bothered with their psych rotation because it's...

  12. To cut or not to cut?
    Unless it seriously interferes with treatment (such as surgery) or has become a health and/or safety hazard, I'd leave the patient and their hygiene habits be.

  13. Career change...several questions
    Hireability as an ADN has a lot to do with the local job market. I started nursing in the South, where ADNs and diplomas had no problem at all getting jobs. Then I moved to California, where many...

  14. Highest possible pay for ADN/RN
    Honestly, it is EXTREMELY unlikely that you will make 90k right out of the starting gate as a new grad with an ADN, at least not with working just one job. With two jobs, maybe. Perhaps in a...

    The odds of legit medications triggering false positives for drugs is actually lower than people think. That being said, TXRN2 perfectly summed it up what you should do. In your case, it's far...

    Another alternative if you can't get your desired name with one e-mail provider: try another provider. Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail and MSN are just a few of many good free email providers. Also, many...

  17. On Negative Feedback
    Then that's your decision and your risk to take. Hopefully such a decision won't come back to bite you in the rear, but if it does I'm sure you'll deal with the fallout somehow.

    I'd amend the first one to let them know that they can pass or fail with the minimum, the maximum, and any number in between.

  19. Passed NCLEX, got licensed...now what?
    That is the official Ohio Board of Nursing Website. Information for both RNs and LPNs is there, though why they make the RN info so hard to find on it, I have no idea. In fact, I will say that...

  20. Pearson Vue: Bullies?
    I'm not dissing your school. But I am very surprised that your school had a protocol for this, and that they rely so heavily on an unofficial trick that isn't even 100% accurate and which now may end...

  21. Holiday Scheduling - how to make it fair
    The first facility I worked at was just like RNsRWe's: they broke everyone up into two teams (seniority didn't matter). Then they divided up the holidays and assigned them to each team. They divided...

    First of all, when it comes to how to plead, whether to apply for PTI, etc., I defer to your lawyer as I'm not one nor can AN.com give legal advice. The thing about expungment is that while it may...
