  1. FNP ANCC/ANNP ADVICE FOR EXAM 2021

    Hello, I may have over prepared, but I passed the AANP exam on first try and thought it was way easier than what I was expecting. I read the fitzgerald book as part of my last course which breaks it down by system and then every section has ques...
  2. Hi, I agree with you, not fair! We were left hanging by our coworkers when they should’ve had our backs and now they waltz back in and expect everything to go back to normal. The people that stayed with us throughout during the early months whic...
  3. I do agree that sometimes we are understaffed, but there should be no good excuse to for nurses not to make rounds on patients. When I read something like this, I cant help but wonder if there is more to this post than just the nurse didnt come and c...
  4. Wow, this is news to me, I understand why reassessment is needed, but medications like these that treat chronic conditions and are daily medications should not be required to have reassessment. what is the pain scale going to look like 0/10 before an...
  5. Can a registered nurse work as a medical assistant

    Need to be certified in the position you are doing, like phlebotomy or MA and even if you are certified, then hired, you are still expected to follow the highest license that you have. starting out in a less intense environment as an outpatient clini...
  6. Another Tragedy at Vanderbilt

    When something goes wrong, like the surgery for instance, people tend to blame then nurses, why didnt the nurse catch this...better question, how did this patient still make it to the OR and allowed to continue the procedure and no one catch this. If...
  7. What do you do...

    We are suppose to keep busy. I use down time like this to make sure rooms are stocked and if everything seems good and still have time I usually do some online CEU's. If I am not busy, first thing I do is see if I can help my co-workers because they ...
  8. What the hot fudge is going on here?!?!?

    Wow... and these people are in power. I have always been pro vaccines and the research is there to back up the effectiveness of them. I understand that it is every parents right to do as they wish with their children, but if you choose to not vaccina...
  9. Should I stay or should I go now...

    Have you considered that if you are not happy that you are not utilizing your nursing skills to their fullest, then may be then school nursing may not be for you? I dont mean to come off sounding mean or anything, but it is something to think about.
  10. Seeking Advice RN to BSN programs

    Now the ADN program teaches you more skill and basic nursing knowledge, and the BSN teaches more about leadership, critical thinking and looking at a patient differently, more of a whole. I agree, in state universities will have a lower cost than ou...
  11. Ridiculous medical mistakes on TV

    All these shows, show the "doctors" always doing everything for the patient. When is the last time any one of you guys saw a doctor doing anything for a patient, like giving them a medication, lab draw, or starting an IV. With that said, it doesn't s...
  12. I do not believe all for profit hospitals are necessarily soul sucking, but I do feel used sometimes by them. We do the hard work and they see all the benefits go straight into their pockets. I do see some for profit places where they do offer extens...
  13. I was slapped by a patient

    This type of behavior needs to be reported and that is the only to get the word out that this behavior will not be tolerated at your facility. I do not know where this incident happened, but in Texas it is a third degree felony.
