    Do not return list

    I knew I recognized this username! I think the best option here is for you to talk to the agency that you worked for to determine why you were placed on these lists. Can it cause you to not be hired at a facility? Sure. At the worst, you can...

    Should I quit my job

    Either way, your new employer is going to ask during your interview about where you presently work. If I read your posts work PRN at a facility, you work in ICU at a different facility newly off orientation, and you have applied for a...

    Yes, You CAN Do This!

    Congratulations. You’ve embarked on a journey so many of us have trekked before you, yet in a crazy whirlwind of a pandemic. Obviously, you must have dreams and goals that pushed your desire to enter into the world of healthcare and conquer the beast...
  4. Being a new grad nurse is difficult no matter what. Your co-workers need to be understanding of this. When I first started on my floor as a nurse last year (started out cardiac and now we are strictly COVID), I was shy and timid. Even though I alrea...

    My house is so empty.

    I tried to get him to go stay with her at his parents but he refuses to do it. He said that he doesn’t want me to get sick and be by myself. I’ve insisted and he’s pushed back and said if I have to go through this then he’s going through it with me. ...

    Small Victory for staff

    My facility, initially two weeks ago, stated that we weren’t allowed to wear masks because it would “incite fear” unless we were directly exposed to a PUI. That same day, they placed a PUI on our floor. So, if I am taking care of a PUI (strictly o...

    My house is so empty.

    I’m a nurse. I’m a mom. I’m a wife. I didn’t get any option or any warning when they turned the med-surg floor I work on into the designated COVID-19 unit. I’m a NEW nurse. I will hit my year mark in the middle of a pandemic. This is NOT what I s...

    Trouble communicating with patients?

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. I will try offering other choices when their request just isn’t feasible. I have learned very quickly that the best way to grow a spine is to become a nurse! ?

    Trouble communicating with patients?

    I do agree with pain is what the patient says it is. I actually did call the doctor about her pain medicine and he asked me to describe what she was doing, etc. Evidently, the nurse the day before had called him regarding the same exact thing and it ...
  12. So, I’m a new nurse. I’ve worked as a CNA all through nursing school, so patient care comes as a breeze. However, I am struggling with communication that patients “don’t want to hear”. Such as, “The doctor is not going to up your Norco 5 to IV pain ...

    Combat Fatigue

    No idea. It started as allergies and then developed into a nasty sinus infection. I got out of my habit of getting yo early to go to the gym and would rather stay in my bed. It’s been about 3 months since that.

    Combat Fatigue

    I have a free gym membership that I was using for a while and I stopped going to classes because I got sick and then after I got over being sick I just felt so tired constantly. I think I’m going to pick up their yoga class on Tuesdays and Thursdays...

    Combat Fatigue

    I didn’t even think about that but now that is all I think when I read the topic. ??‍♀️
