    OR Internship

    Hello all! I have been a medsurg nurse for about 4 years now and I’ve decided to try to transition over to the OR, which was my original nursing plan and my ultimate end goal (to become a surgical NP with first assist training). I have applied a ...

    Temporary Disability

    I have std and fmla. Std is capped at a certain amount per year (can’t remember right now) at 60% of my pay (after 2 weeks pto) and after that fmla kicks in which is no pay. We have three kids to take of so I won’t have a choice but to try to find an...

    Temporary Disability

    That sounds nice. I would love to do something like that and would be able to if my legal ties to my old unit hadn’t already been severed. We also don’t get sick time. We get 7 hours of pto every two weeks of work and that’s it. I’m currently using s...

    Temporary Disability

    That’s actually why I’m paying extra for short term disability! 🤦‍♀️ I will definitely look into that; thank you 🙏

    Temporary Disability

    Thanks. Unfortunately because I’m starting on a new unit and am technically an orientee there isn’t a light duty option for me per my new manager and after checking the hospital for any needs they weren’t able to find any vacancies on the covid teams...

    Temporary Disability

    Unfortunately I was suppose to start on a new unit (same hospital I’ve been working at) the day I broke my knee and was expected to be in orientation for 8 weeks. The new unit is 100% heavy duty but the manager did say she’d look into seeing if there...

    Temporary Disability

    Hello all. About 6 weeks ago I dislocated and broke my kneecap among other things and got surgery in the hopes to repair it all. During this time I have been out on short term disability which sucks since it only pays out 60% of my actual pay. My ...

    UVA Fall 2021

    So I thought it was initially pretty strange because what could you possibly cover in that short amount of time right? But it worked out. I think mine ended up lasting about 30-40 minutes and we covered a lot. We talked about why I wanted to the an N...

    UVA Fall 2021

    Hey guys! Tried to start a thread for the UVA Fall 2021 cohort but it didn’t pick up any traction so I thought I’d try once more. I applied to the Acute care gerontology DNP program and just received an invite for an interview today. Anyone else?

    Incredibly Discouraged

    I have been a nurse for the last four years and it didn’t start out rosy. My first day on the job in a level 1 ICU fresh out of nursing school I found out I was pregnant. For months I didn’t tell my managers or coworkers I was pregnant for fear I’d b...
  14. Is anyone aware of any NPs programs that allow student to take additional science/theory courses to bolster the information they’re learning? I want to be as competent an NP as possible on graduations and would love to take additional pathophysiology...

    UVA AGAC-DNP Program

    Hello all 👋 I am pursuing my acute care NP license starting Fall 2021 with applications submitted to three schools, currently accepted into my second choice. I am trying to wait until I hear back from UVA as it’s my #1 pick but am curious what ...

    Bedside Nursing and Pregnant

    Hey all so I am currently 35 weeks with my first surro-babe (now measuring at 36) and work full-time nights on an increasingly heavy med-surg floor. My plan was to work right up until labor just as I did with my two keepers (38 weeks and 40 weeks) bu...
