  2. Right track?
    If I were you, I'd listen carefully to the advice of those who are doing, or did, what I wanted to do. Whether or not you take the advice is your choice, but calling people that are trying to help...

  3. Girl Brain Dead after Tonsillectomy
    This is a very sad case. We cannot know if there was anything else that should have been done, since the family is not allowing the hospital to release details of the case. However, the nurses...

  4. New grad med evac?
    Yep, Banner is infamous for this. They put up a job listing with no specific information about the job, just the generic crap that was in the job you were interested in. I don't know how they get...

  6. New grad looking for first job - what could make a hospital do this?
    This. Possibly a hiring freeze altogether since there is no positions listed. I'd apply to other positions as they come up, but if you see the same ED position posted again in a few weeks, I'd...

  7. I'm afraid nursing might not be for me
    This is very accurate. I think your problem is a mixture of both being a new grad, and the acuity level. I have gone through the same feelings that you are and almost gave up altogether. Your...

  8. ICU Overflow, What Happens Then?
    So, are you saying that they make someone triple with a post-code? Wrong, if that's the case. I work at a large hospital with neuro, cv, surgical, medical, and trauma icu's, so we usually have a...

  9. Where is the nursing shortage?
    Try states where the economy is good, low unemployment, etc. Think places like North Dakota and Oklahoma.

    Oh Adam, very unfortunate.As well as applying locally, you need to start applying out of state, as others have mentioned. Try places where there still is a nursing shortage, especially for...

  11. These two idiots need to have their nursing licenses revoked
    This seriously makes me sick to my stomach. That poor woman. The family probably feels so guilty, even though they couldn't have known.

  12. mom vs nurse
    It's extremely difficult. I have a 5, 3, and 10 month old. One of the things that makes it work for us is me working night shift. Everyone likes this better because I wake up @ 1430, get the kids...

  13. For those who work 12's and do self scheduling
    How about Thurs - Tues? 6 in a row, then 8 off. Those 6 shifts are hard, but the 8 off is so nice. You have time to be a normal person.

  14. How do Nurses find trusted, flexible childcare for shift work?
    Not to discourage, but I would never be able to do it without my husband. We have a 5 yr old, 2 yr old, and 5 month old. I work nights, and he works from home and travels 2-3 days per week. I'm...

  15. Should I pay or should I wait?
    You will most likely qualify for pell grants/subsidized student loans. I think you should go for the cheapest, quickest option ($40k?).

    I would definitely take the job. The hardest part about night shift and being married for me is not sleeping in bed next to my husband 3 nights per week. But, as others have said, we spend time in...

    I agree, wouldn't usually call on this unless the pt had a significant cardiac hx. I'd just wait for the doc to round in the am and make sure some PO K+ was ordered.

  22. Advice needed from fellow night shift people
