    Newgradnurse17, BSN got a reaction from Emergent in side job/second job?   
    I saw YouTube video from glamour that showed one person making 40k a year from selling her worn underwear on Craigslist.....

    Finally! Another person from NZ. 
    youre not alone. No one ever thought this type of thing would happen here. We thought we were safe from the madness of the world.
    I still can’t believe that one person could plan this, even post his plans on social media, and not be known to police. that makes me really angry. The fact he managed to shoot up two place before being caught is horrific. Can’t imagine what else he had planned or if those bombs went off. 
    I cant imagine what it must be like for people in chch. Keep talking about it. There’s a free number you can call or text, set up with trained counsellors, to help you through it. 
    We are all finding this so difficult. The whole country is grieving.

    Wait! The RN was arrested but no one else on the team? Even the surgeon who actually did this? At the end of the day it’s there pt, they are the one doing the surgery, it’s there responsibility. 
    Pinning this all on one RN is horrific.

    Newgradnurse17, BSN got a reaction from NuGuyNurse2b in What do you do...   
    Can’t say I’ve ever seen ED empty. And it’s quite rare for all pt care to be done when working on different floors. But normally if there are too many staff they get sent to other departments to help out. Maybe for short period of time or maybe the whole shift depending on what’s going on. 
    If I have down time, I try get ahead and prepare anything I can do now or write notes. Our hospital also has online education sessions I might do if it’s something useful. Otherwise I enjoy the quiet time while it last. Makes up for those hectic shifts where you leave late, or have no breaks.

    Newgradnurse17, BSN got a reaction from Nursekaty19 in Outpatient New Grad Opportunity   
    I say go for it!
    Getting a job as a new grad isn’t easy. Especially if your trying for one speciality. Having a job guaranteed related to your area of interest is good.
    I’m assuming you enjoy working there. If you know you are going to be supported and get on well with staff, then it’s the perfect place to start.

    Newgradnurse17, BSN got a reaction from gonzo1 in Sitting down - New nurse looking for advice   
    I can say the same about your comment. Didn’t want to respond but really bothers me. 
    Experience is one thing. But dealing with a lot **** like you’ve had to is not mandatory. Just because you’ve had it tough, doesn’t mean thats what all nurses need to go threw, before finding a job that they enjoy and works for them. 
    Nursing has so many option, that’s part of the reason people enjoy the job. Some enjoy fast pace acute care, or mental health, or community health or children’s health. Doesn’t make a difference. It’s all nursing.
    We shouldn’t exclude others from the profession if they can’t/don’t want to work in a hospital. They can go nursing school and contribute a lot to society without having to do hard labour.

    Newgradnurse17, BSN got a reaction from CommunityRNBSN in bedside report   
    I think it depends on the nurses tbh. I work float pool, and I find some floors are really good at bedside handover. It efficient, the staff like it, the pt like it.
    We go in, if the pt is asleep we won’t wake them. We say what we need to and move on. If there’s anything important we can check it there together. If the pt had something important to say, we let them. But we don’t stand there while they rant on. Takes just as long as handover in the nurses station.  
    Other floors that still try to get away with out doing it, it doesn’t work. Nurses make a big deal about it, just makes something that’s simple and should be quick into something long and dreaded.

    Newgradnurse17, BSN got a reaction from Megan1977, MSN, RN in What is considered "job hopping"   
    IMO you should stay in a job for at least a year. Unless there’s a very good reason why you left earlier  
    But then again if you change your job every year that doesn’t look good either. 
    Some one with five years experience whose had 2 jobs isn’t job hopping. Someone whose had 4,5,6 plus is.
