  5. "Noting" orders in an EHR does it have to be done?
    Our charting program has a nurse review screen where you basically acknowledge the order; it puts your name against the order as the nurse who reviewed.

  9. Covenant, UT Med Center or East Tenn Children's?
    I would go with Children's..I've heard good things. I believe UT now does all their peds through Childrens if I recall correctly. Perhaps you could contact a nurse recruiter for more of the details...

  11. What kind of Nurse does administrative work?
    Totally agree with HouTX. NETWORK! Join committees, get to know people in other departments. Perhaps a procedural area would be a good next step for you? Not office, but something different anyway....

  15. Vent!!! So frustrated.
    I would try to focus on your patients. I think it would look bad to go to your 3rd job in less than one year. It doesn't sound likes it's an unsafe working environment, just not your "fit". Keep...

  18. HELP!! this might as well had been a MED ERROR!!!

  25. BSN vs ASN Knoxville TN
