  2. Burn ICU > Flight Nursing
    I agree with most of what everyone said. I would personally shy away from burn unit at first if your goal was to fly. It seems as though you want to go on to another unit and gain more experience...

  4. Nursing student wanting to work in ER
    I encouraged GNs to go for their dreams. I believe that working ER or ICU is as much a personality fit as one of capability, knowledge, and desire. I have precepted GNs as well as floor and ICU...

  5. Interview tips for Experienced ICU nurse
    Great things said here and I can't agree more. I think a lot of it has to do with personality. Some are wired for it and some aren't. Even if you aren't "wired" for it, that doesn't mean you can't...

  9. CCRN exam
    No, I don't believe there is a waiting period to retest. Register and retest ASAP! Also consider a CCRN review on iTunes. Give yourself a couple days, listen to those, and then go hit the test...

  10. Would like a few answers from ER nurses
    I'm not gonna sugar coat it. This is the ER, do what you can to make it a better/safer environment, but it is what it is. It is busy, hectic, chaotic, energy zapping, life altering. You love it or...

  11. Those that have taken CEN - a few questions
