  1. HalfBoiled

    New Grads in the ICU

    Be the role model for those new grads.
  2. HalfBoiled

    I just graduated high school

    Depending on the type of nursing school you are applying to, start reviewing for the TEAS or HESI (or related nursing school entrance exam)
  3. HalfBoiled

    If the government legalizes marijuana in the US...

    I would want more evidence based research articles/studies for anything marijuana related.
  4. HalfBoiled

    RN's are you happy with your career, why or why not?

    I am happy with the work I do. I am unhappy with most of the people I work with.
  5. HalfBoiled

    help me decide which route to take

    Apply to all you can. I took student loans because of job stability.
  6. Definitely works! My original MedSurg unit became specialized in Oncology. We switched from 1:5 to 1:4. That allows more time to research any new patient's history. I get to be more hands on and less time at a computer.

    Keep waiting for your exam. You should go on vacation in the mean time.

    New RN Graduate!

    1. Chose one of three questions banks: - Kaplan (Live or Online Live) - UWorld - NCSBN (company who writes the NCLEX) 2. Get LaCharity Prioritization and Delegation book - 70% of my exam were "who do you see first" types of questions Build testing endurance by taking 50 questions per day and then increasing to 265 questions per day

    Moving to California?

    To my knowledge, you should research "endorsing your UT RN license" to California. The process takes MONTHS to complete.
  10. HalfBoiled

    HIPAA violation?

    If i see family at the bedside, from the get-go, I would just ask "Hi ___ I just got on, and for my clarification, is it okay to discuss details about your care while family members are present?" Most of the time, my patients gives consent.
  11. HalfBoiled

    Dispute test question??

    If the question was asking "What would be your first intervention?" Nasal Cannula would make sense. You are able to contest that question to your professor if you have other classmates with the same thought process and selected answer.
  12. HalfBoiled

    Swastikas & Nursing | Refusing care based upon moral objection?

    If I get a Neo-Nazi patient; as long as he/she doesn't jeopardize my safety or try to trigger a reaction out of me, then I will continue to do my nursing duty.
  13. HalfBoiled

    Iv antibiotic running as primary?

    I can understand the Emergency Department doing this.
  14. HalfBoiled

    Any Prenurse taking math

    The most math you're ever going to need is College Algebra.
  15. Are there any good come backs for snide remarks of "Well it's YOUR license then"? Especially when you're following policy.
