  2. Epinephrine IV or IM in this situation.
    The only epinephrine you should EVER really be pushing IV is the 1mg for cardiac arrest, and in my facility, this is only if you are trained in BLS and ACLS. 0.3mg epinephrine IM is the preferred...

  3. Nurse considering law school
    Have you thought about being a legal nurse consultant instead? Much cheaper than going to law school, and it would let you use your nursing skills in the courtroom -- the best of both worlds if...

    Thrilling: codes, CPR, emergent CVL insertions, intubations, severe arterial lacerations, major trauma, unresponsive patients, psych emergencies (ED nurse, so I'm an adrenaline junkie) Terrifying:...

  7. What is or was your easiest or hardest nursing course
    Hardest for me was our Pediatrics rotation, not so much the class. Hated peds mostly because a.) I just don't like working with sick children; and b.) I did my clinical time in a facility with a high...

  8. New BSN grad -Do I have the experience needed for a hospital job?

  9. PLEASE help! What are my options???
    Yes, there are some where you can go straight into an NP program with a bachelors degree in another field, but I can't say I'm the biggest proponent of these programs for multiple reasons. I believe...

  10. PLEASE help! What are my options???
    Personally, I would have understood had they rejected you for failing badminton. I mean really, it's those 1 C.H. classes that have made you the nurse you are today. I don't even want to think about...

  14. Missing my AN friends
    -To be fair, there are reasons we ER nurses cannot get along with some (not all) floor nurses. -I'm just going to assume something is warm and sticky if it is next to a patient's bodily orifice. No...

  16. The Blue Hair Nurse
    I think one should conform to an employer's dress guidelines for the sake of not causing a brouhaha, but if my nurse had proven herself to be smart, safe, and a good patient advocate, I wouldn't care...

  18. University of South Alabama FNP Spring 2016

  19. The aggravation of it all
    My instructors are also bound and determined to use the newer editions of textbooks, and they're almost as determined as I am not to use the newest editions of said textbooks. Instead of buying my...

  20. Working and School is it doable?
    It is doable, just difficult for some. I am a BSN trained nurse, and worked full-time during my AS, BSN, and the master's classes I took. You'll be tired, rarely see your family or the outside world,...

  21. What is your biggest nursing pet peeve??
    I do this, and I've been a nurse for about 2 years now. I do it so if I get pulled over for *probably* speeding to work, I can hopefully get out of a ticket without having to resort to my feminine...

  22. Com'on, you got one...What is your heart wrenching moment?
    I work in an ED and while I should be prepared for anything, pediatric codes tug at my heart strings. All the compressions on such a tiny body, and working it much longer than you should just because...
