Can you give me some insight into our topic at hand. You spent a lot of time reminding users of bulletin board rules, but neglected my topic for the most part. Any insight would be useful! This is for a project....not just chit chat.
I made my comments. follow the thread. Called out by name for giving my opinion like there is just one way. I do not believe in going to a specialty without learning how to organize time, learing how to tell when someone any age becomes ill .
I have been practicing for 28 years and hold an advanced degree. My insight was given early in the thread.
I guess you missed it. I will cut and paste it.

I always use my Cousin Susan in all of my examples of mistakes, , well just some of them.
Anyway, she went straight into Mother/Baby for 18 year, did not float much and her job was phased out. She was under the impression she was a nurse who could do anything. She found out later that you do not handle sick people on Mother /Baby. I don't mean ugly situations, but in Mother /Baby 90% of the patients are routine and bascially well.
She was so sorry she did not do at least 6 months on an adult Med Surg unit in the begining. She was so lost, she had to go take a nurse refresher course just to function.
I believe it is most important to know how to take care of sick people first.
