I am not pleased about facilities wanting to use our personal cell for texts, they should be providing secure ones. I don't want to be going home with all that available on my phone. And I don't want to pay for cell service they use, I'm petty like that. But if it was private and approved by the hospital, sure. I'd love having a record of how often I texted and what was said.
Yes, you can. In fact, if you are a resident of AZ the FL board of nursing likely wouldn't let you renew.
Wow..There really is something wrong with me..174 people who I would guess are nurses have looked at my post and two have commented.
No offense to anyone but it leads me to believe that 172 are texting..what has become of nursing?
Doctors should know better as well. If you have the time to text you can call. Its just lazy and huge HIPPA violation...Oh well
The non-trauma facility is likely to have points that offset the lower pay. Less likelihood of having to work evening or night shift, less probability of being called in when on call, probably less call to cover as well.
3 months and still interviewing? The hospital is in need of a nurse NOW. Not one 6 months from now who needs a full orientation. Most likely, hiring someone without OR experience is their option of last resort. You have an offer from the community hospital- grab what is definite. Get a few years of OR experience, and then you will be a competitive applicant for the trauma facility or you may find that the community hospital is better than you think.

Not all facilities call them perioperative residencies. We don't, because we don't want ours confused with the additional facility wide nursing residency. If you see an open OR position, reach out to the HR contact and ask about info regarding orientation. My HR department has a flyer with the information about our orientation so that those who want to know can find out that information before applying.
Is there a common pattern and size? If it's really a burn, it isn't occurring in the OR if they're at least one day post op. I'd start looking at the ICU.
OK, one of my things on my resume is that I'm A+ certified as a IT technician. Mac computers don't magically work better or last longer. They're computers. You're using the same Western Digital hard drive, on the same B series motherboard, using the same DDR3 RAM, all running on the same intel i5 CPU. Literally the only difference is the operating system, which for the average user makes no noticeable difference.
The HP equivalent of a macbook air is a few hundred dollars cheaper for 100% identical hardware. For a student, go with the HP. Don't waste your money on a logo. Also, for useful software as a student, Windows is the way better choice because if it's not designed for both OS's, it's more likely going to sell to windows users because there's just that many more of them, so as a result, you tend to get more choices of software.
Don't listen to the apple fanclub's hype. Buy anything that's not designed as an "e machine" and you'll be fine.
What work have you already done and where are you getting stuck? Your post does not include the information needed to assist you in learning how to do this type of problem.
Almost 24/7 open visitation. Only exception is 0700-0800 and 1800-2000 for bedside report and patient quiet time. No children under 12. Exceptions to both rules made for end of life situations and the occasional ICU wedding.
Job abandonment is different than patient abandonment. Walking out when on the clock without the approval of whoever is in charge of allowing staff to leave essentially means you've quit without notice.
I don't know how to send a private message and it wont let me repost it. Any ideas?
As a busy ward nurse, you have a lot of contact and interaction with patients and their families. As an OR nurse, you will have none of that. You will be an umpire of sorts, seeing to the adherence of policy and procedure. Patient contact will be 10% of what you do and procedural orthodoxy and documentation will be your life. Understand this fully before coming to the OR.

Pick-Pocket Nurses Pouch, Nurses Belt and Nurses Bag, Pick Pocket Bag I'm in Australia but sure there are local options. We tend to wear them on the hip.
