  1. Walking from school at night with deer and no street lamps?
    I don't know if getting a bike is an option for you. That would greatly speed up your commute vs. walking.

  2. Student Signature
    There wasn't much for us to sign, but had I needed to, I would have signed SN. The electronic documentation was signed SN. Your clinical instructor should have that answer for you.

  5. A Rant by a Special Snowflake.
    Before nursing school, I was working at a gas station. I took a $3/hr cut to be an ER Tech. It still makes no sense to me because working as an ER Tech was more strenuous and required much more skill.

  6. What did you do before nursing?
    I went to college and worked at a gas station. I like nursing better. I guess it's not a second career though..

  7. First clinical in Cardiopulmonary
    Go listen to heart tones and breath sounds online, read up on incentive spirometry, and look up blood pressure meds, diuretics, and bronchodilators to start... I would look up the etiology, patho,...

  8. Why are the floor nurses so unwilling to teach?
    Oh yea, we charted. The floor nurse was still responsible for there assessments, so you'd see double charting on the patients. And back to the role of the CI, they would review our charting and pick...

  9. Why are the floor nurses so unwilling to teach?
    My CI's were never bored. We were required to check meds with them, check procedures before doing them, etc. In the beginning, they held our hands and helped us in the room. Not everyone got to do...

    Each state is run separately, so they can have different benefits according to state.

  11. Could this be discrimination?
    It sounds like she has too many new nurses right now and that's why she isn't willing to hire you early. If you graduated the semester before, you'd probably have started with the others. I just...

  12. Doctor charts later?
    What??? That's a thing?

  13. Doctor charts later?
    I think it's a case of a physician that constantly asks for meds to push and always puts in the formal orders later. I think the OP might be worried because the other physicians don't do it that way...

  15. Doctor charts later?
    I wouldn't go that far.... In my state nurses can manage propofol and precedex drips, but can't push it. In the ER, the docs would push those drugs to pop a shoulder in or something like that. The...

  16. Doctor charts later?
    No, the nurse shouldn't get in trouble unless it's against the facility's policies.

  18. Doctor charts later?
    Sounds like a verbal order for the medication. Just make sure you get a written one later. This happens frequently in emergency situations. I don't think it's appropriate in non-emergency situation...

  19. Eligibility validity
    That's a question for the Canadian nursing board. Pearson will let you register as long as your board says it's ok.

  20. Oh, magical taker of blood pressures, show me how!!!
    I usually just wave my hand over your skin and sense your blood pressure vibrations like that. It's pretty reliable. It's only off +- 75 mmHg. It's way faster so it's fine.

  22. Why are the floor nurses so unwilling to teach?
    I didn't feel like a burden to the nurses. Many told us that they liked/didn't mind us. This was because we didn't spend much time with the nurses and we did most of the treatments for their...

    I talked to recruiters for Blue Cross that told me you needed experience before they'd consider you. But it never hurts to try.

  25. Why are the floor nurses so unwilling to teach?
    Like a pp stated, students pay the school for an education. The school should be the ones teaching them. Who knows what bad habits you might pick up from a floor nurse. The nurse might know it's...
