  5. 1st time 3rd shifter needs advice
    I love working the "Third Shift", aka NOCs, aka the Night Shift! A big part of the reason I became a nurse is because of the existence of night shift. It is perfect for spending time with family,...

  9. Learning Interqual

  10. Learning Interqual
    The first and most important thing to understand about Interqual is that it is NOT your job to make patients meet criteria. So DO NOT look around for the right diagnosis and treatment to make the...

  19. You could instantly tell something was wrong
    I hope security and the police were called as part of "standard procedures". We (the staff) and the patient are not to be yelled at and intimidated and we are not punching bags. This is a very...
