Just like BSN, some hospitals don't pay higher for certification. Sucks!
Yep, I understand this. The original message said "hospitals prefer a certification over a BSN" and I took this to mean ADN and not a SPECIALTY certification. An RN w/a BSN can still get a certification, so I don't really understand this person's point. I guess she's saying, if you're going to spend time on additional education, go for a certification instead (instead of the BSN).
I been wanting to know the difference between a bsn and adn scope of practice. Is the adn limited in the clinical setting?
Agree, not your responsibility!! Did your manager REALLY say you might get written up or fired for this?? I'm pissed on your behalf.
This was clearly a process/communication issue. Whoever physically took the blood from the blood bank and brought it to the OR dropped the ball by not using closed loop communication to physically give you the blood.
And like others, I'm wondering why the OR was not turned over until the next day.
OP, do NOT take responsibility for this!
Sounds like facility-wide (re?)education is in order regarding your policies surrounding photos. The facility should be required to obtain a signed media release form prior to sharing any photographs of anyone (staff or patients) in the news or social media. I'm guessing that since it was not an official photo taken by someone while in the role of hospital representative, they didn't consider it necessary.
I guess I would approach it by contacting the hospital PR person, let them know you did not consent to that photo being taken or distributed, you would like it removed, and you would like ALL staff to be reminded of the hospital's "no photography" policy.
Why would a hospital prefer a lower education over a higher one?
Oregon, outdside Portland. Look for a smaller communities in Oregon. The Southern Oregon coast is in desperate need.
Unfortunate situation , but I'm not surprised by the physician behavior . Some of these hospitals treat doctors like mini gods and can do no wrong . They also tend not nip bad behaviors by the doctors until it's too late.
And I want to be clear: you have NOT FAILED. They are failing you, and all the other new grads they're training by giving such a short, barely-scratch-the-surface orientation in such a critical, high-risk area.
Well, crap. 12 weeks to learn L&D (HIGH RISK L&D, no less - not even "normal" births), mom/baby AND circulating for C/S? That is NOT ENOUGH TIME. For anyone. Plus, as a NEW GRAD!! That's crazy.
Where I am, new grads get 12 weeks of JUST Mom/Baby. They learn the basics of assessment and time management on generally healthy stable patients. Once they've been on their own for 6-12 months, THEN they get oriented to L&D, and that on its own is 3-4 months of orientation.
I'm sorry. I think what you're describing is unfair to you, as well as the patients. I don't have an answer for you, other than try to find a different job that has a better orientation program.
OP, I've just done the same thing. My husband and child are back in the previous place for another month or two, which makes it worse.
It's scary, and really really stressful. But you will be a better person for it. You can do this, and so can I. Hang in there. This is the third time I've done this, and I promise it gets better.
A nurse should never question a physician?? What the holy **** is this ********??
Dude! Holy ****.
And hopefully you'll leave your staffing difficulty behind!!
False. There are many areas of the country that do not have reasonable proximity to BSN programs. The associates trained nurses are the ones that staff these small communities' Hospitals. If they started requiring a BSN, they wouldn't have enough nurses to take care of the patients.
