    Okay I talked to my employer they said that I didn't have to do anything with my license and that it should be okay. But I am going to talk to the BON in new Mexico about applying for a new license. Thank you all for your help.

    I am lost

    Hi, I am feeling lost on what to do in my current situation. I was offered a job and accepted it at a hospital out of the state that is currently half way across the country from me. It pays much better than my current job and I get way less patients. My current problem is staying at my job in a SNF. I really hate my current job and I dread going into work every day. I am a new nurse and I feel completely and totally incompetent. I was only given a week and a half of training. I feel like there is no help and a lack of support and anytime I ask for help my supervisor gets angry. I just feel so overwhelmed with all my patients. I have anywhere from 15- 20 patients. I just don't know when the right time to quit is. I want to quit once I have all the money I need saved up. I start my new job in late October. I feel like I am constantly forgetting to do something.
  6. I am a peasant compared to the rest of you. I am a new grad in a SNF in Tampa, Fl. I get paid $24.50/hr plus an astounding $1.00 differential for my shift so the grand total is $25.50/hr.

    How to manage 14 to 20 patients

    Hi I am a new nurse and have been working as a nurse for 3 weeks. I work on a sub-acute rehab floor where I can have anywhere from 14 to 20 patients. I have been feeling very overwhelmed recently because I am finding it difficult to care for so many patients. I find it difficult to properly do my assessments with so many patients and can only do it on the new admissions I get. I have to do 2 med pass per shift but I keep getting detailed when I am doing them because I either get a new admission, or something is wrong with a patient, or a family member wants to talk to me. Also my patients are supposed to be subacute but I have a couple that I believe should be on an acute floor in a hospital. When I get a new admission I have to stay after my shift for an hour to do the charting for them. I also have a problem with some of the CNA's and making sure that they are completing their tasks properly I dont like having to babysit grown adults and make sure that they are doing their jobs which also puts me further behind. I also have a problem with their attitude that they give me I was told be preceptor that it was because I am new and so much younger than them. I am supposed to be in training still but have been left on my own for a week now with no preceptor.

    Is post-acute OK for first job?

    I am in a similar situation I just started working at a skilled nursing facility and I am having trouble finding a nurse residency position the good thing about the facility I work at though is my orientation is as long as I want it to be.

    Change of Shift Report Question

    Hi I am a new nurse and have been working on a rehab floor in a skilled nursing facility where I have 16 to 20 patients anyways I was wondering how to do a change of shift report for LTR because I was taught to do SBAR but with the many patients it doesn't work the nurse training me said it is okay to just report no changes for patients that didn't have anything recently going on. This is my second day working as a nurse

    Nclex Wait time is killing me

    How do you cope with the stress and anxiety of waiting for you NCLEX results? I took my Nclex at about 1:30 pm yesterday and finished in 79 questions and since then I haven't been able to sleep or do anything to get my mind off it. I did the Pearson vue trick and got the good pop up but I am unsure of its accuracy because I heard some people still have failed when they got it.
