    ECG help

    I'm taking the ACCN ECG course, and it says the rhythm strip is a graphical printout of one or two leads at a time. I'm confused. It's a 12-lead right? I'm sorry if stupid question but I really want to understand this.

    ECG help

    Hi, what ECG book would you recommend that does a great job explaining the concepts for someone who is new to ECG?

    Interview Anxiety

    I’m literally frozen with fear when comes to interviews. I’ve tried finding nurse interview coaches online but no luck. I know I’m smart but can’t figure out why I’m struggling so much trying to answer basic interview questions. I’ve been stuck on “Tell me about yourself “ for three damn days. I finally broke down & cried. I’ve been unemployed for two years. I really want to work back on the floor. I know it’s stress but I love how fast pace it is & the challenges that come with it. I love the adrenaline rush of acute care. Please help

    Interview at Elmhurst Hospital

    Hi, I'm a recent RN-BSN nurse and I've worked in Medical Surgical for two years prior to obtaining my BSN. I have been off the floor for two years. I'm I wasting my time applying to Elmhurst Hospital? If not, what are the interviews like? I'm thinking about applying to Med Surg, or PCU. Thoughts?

    Interview for different specility

    HI, waufah BSN, RN. I'm trying to answer the question of "What makes you qualified for this position?" but I am stuck because I know that I would need to be trained in ICU. Only thing I can say is "I'm qualified because I am willing to work hard in order to be a successful ICU nurse". I am so passionate about this choice that I would do whatever it takes to succeed. As a nurse that has been of floor for two years, how can I sell myself as being qualified to be in ICU?
