    I'm an SDC in rehab/LTC. Could anyone offer me some advice on how you keep track of license expiration dates and TB tests? I'm a new SDC and would really appreciate any tips you'd like to share. This system was not in place because I"m the first SDC in my building, so I need to develop an efficient system quickly. Thank you!

    Hello! We're in the process of deciding who will be responsible for organizing our care plan meetings (i.e., scheduling the meeting and notifying families/POA so they can attend). Who is responsible for this in your facility? Thank you for your input!

    i really really hope that the pvt works. my status says delivered successfully and i've been getting the good pop-up. i just feel like i failed majorly (i took the kaplan and hurst reviews and studied for a month)! those of you who are waiting for your results, i feel your pain. so thankful that i live in a state that participates in quick results...i just wish the results were instant! tomorrow i will sign back in and let you know if it worked. pray for all of us who are anxiously waiting! good luck to everyone!

    thank you for the info, noblepath! the more i hear about oncology nursing, the more i want to do it. i've done my clinicals with geriatrics and in long-term acute care and wasn't overly excited about either although i did like geriatrics best of the two. a few days ago, my friend who is an oncologist/hematologist allowed me to shadow her and her nurse for the day. i was amazed at the relationships they both had w/their patients. i think this may be a good fit for me as i want to be able to get to know the patients and their families and give them the best care possible. that is so important to me! i wish you the best of luck in your career--it sounds like you are already doing very well.

    I am assuming that everyone in this thread who was getting ready to start in their new positions as an oncology nurse has done so by now. I am also interested in oncology nursing. How do you like it so far? What are the good points and the bad points? Good luck to all of you! I hope you're loving your new jobs!

    Are there any travel nurses out there? How long did you have to wait after becoming an RN to be able to be a travel nurse? Do you enjoy being a travel nurse? Which states have you had assignments in? I am thinking about becoming a travel nurse as soon as I can after I graduate, so any info would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
