  1. Adult ICU nurse really wanting NICU
    I don't know about other hospitals, but my unit doesn't really hire ADNs any more. You may want to invest the time and money into doing a bridge program for your BSN. Is tuition assistance offered...

  2. Resuscitation equipment
    Our delivery team uses a hanging travel toiletry bag like you suggested...but I'm guessing they're kind of old and I have no idea what brand they are. They fold up pretty small (in thirds I think)...
