    Infusion Nursing?

    Thank you so much for all the information! It is very helpful hearing from someone who has had experience with infusion nursing. I appreciate all the pdfs too. I will definitely take a look at those. Much appreciated! ☺

    Infusion Nursing?

    I have been a nurse for a year and a few months. I started my nursing career on a Telemetry floor and I now work on an Oncology floor. I really want to leave the hospital setting and do outpatient nursing. I have been thinking about trying infusion nursing. I am currently in the process of getting chemo certified in my current position so I plan on staying until at least December. However, I am trying to get prepared now. If anyone has done infusion nursing before is there any tips or advice that you think would be beneficial for me to know prior to getting started? Thank you! 🙂

    Thank you, that is awesome! I love hearing the different opportunities there are with nursing! I've been strongly considering leaving the hospital to start at an outpatient setting once I get a little more experience. I was just curious about my options! Thanks again for sharing your experiences as a nurse 🙂 I understand where you're coming from. Eventually I do want to teach, but I am new and need more experience. I definitely love being a nurse, but I think it is the setting I am in that is making it difficult for me to adjust. Thanks for sharing!

    Yes I definitely still love being a nurse but like you said, the setting is making it hard for me to enjoy giving patient care!

    Hi everyone, I am working at a hospital on a telemetry unit taking care of 6 patients. I really do not love what I am doing which is sad because I am a caring person. I feel like I don't have time to really connect with my patients due to the amount of documentation and other responsibilities that are expected of us. I still like nursing but I feel like working as a RN in the hospital may not be the right fit for me. I dread going to work every day and become overwhelmed just thinking about it. I was wondering if there's anything else I can do with nursing out of a hospital setting? I have tried looking things up but some of the positions I have found only hire LPNs. Any ideas? Thank you! 🙂

    Yes, you're right. I always find that I overwhelm myself for no reason! I have been working on a flowsheet that will work for me during the day. I am hoping the one I recently made will work for me. Thank you for your advice! 🙂

    I appreciate your advice! You are right. I have been trying to be patient with myself since it is a learning experience. I know eventually everything will come together. Thanks for taking time out of your day to make me feel better!

    Hi everyone, I recently graduated from nursing school in May and passed my NCLEX in July. Fortunately I have been hired at a hospital and on orientation for a few more weeks. I am already feeling nervous about starting on my own. I have noticed I am having a difficult time remembering everything about the three patients my preceptor has paired me with.... Which worries me because I will have six patients when I'm on my own. Does anyone have any advice for addressing these feelings? Thank you!

    Thank you very much for your advice! I totally agree with that. I am starting to get a little more comfortable since I have been on orientation for a few weeks. By this time next week I will be on my own. Thanks for making me feel better!

    New job as NA

    Hello everyone, I am currently on orientation as a newly hired NA. I am in nursing school and graduate May 2019 with my BSN. So far orientation has been okay. The nurses seem nice and helpful. It is a very busy unit and often understaffed. I am starting to panic because there is a lot of documentation and I am afraid I am going to mess something up or forget to do something. I know once I am done with orientation I will be on my own and I am definitely nervous! Any advice??? Thank you!
  16. Oh I am sorry to hear that, but that is wonderful you have kept close contact with the HR recruiter. That is such a big help! I was thinking about calling the human resources department in a few days to check on the status of my application. I actually just applied to two other nursing assistant jobs earlier today. I ended up getting an email from one of the hospitals I applied to last week letting me know the position is filled. Although I was upset, I am happy that they ACTUALLY got back to me. So I ended up applying for another open position I saw. In the email they also said they would contact me if another position I am qualified for becomes available. Good luck on your job search! I am currently working in retail as well (it isn't easy haha). But eventually we will be nurses! :)
