Good morning, I received confirmation yesterday (07/18) that I am now an award recipient and now a "Participant" not an "applicant." I'm so grateful and sending up a prayer that everyone else gets good news soon.
I know it's a hassle but I prefer the PAPR. Personal fan in an isolation room? Yes, pleeeeeease.
Hi all, so grateful to say I received a finalist email this morning for LRP. NP, site score 21, DTI 149%. Good luck to everyone, hope everyone else gets this amazing news today!
I also applied for both and got 2 credit checks. Here's hoping!
When everyone was flustered about mastering IV/Foley/other nursing skills...
"I can teach a monkey to do that stuff... what I need is for you all to be critical thinkers so you don't get out there and kill everybody."
You are right. Your preceptor was wrong. I work with marginalized populations and I make it a point to shake hands, touch skin, make them feel welcome and not like a leper. Drawing blood? Gloves. Shaking hands? No. I had a brother with HIV, and we shared drinks, hugged, and went on as normal. My status is negative. As far as how it is transmitted, the most likely way to get it is intercourse (especially anal) or through blood (shared needles, potentially an accidental needle stick). Not by "touching things in his environment."
And I agree with hherrn about their point regarding standards... I would like to refer to them as "fake standards."
An actual, uninterrupted lunch break.
We're always telling them to use protection...
