    stethoscope recommendations?

    Hey everyone, I’m looking to upgrade my stethoscope as the one I have now isn’t the best quality. I work in the MICU and could potentially be working with cardiac patients later in my career. Which stethoscopes do you recommend? TIA!

    Best nurse brain sheet?

    Hey fellow nurses! So I am a total newbie nurse in ICU. Still on orientation and I’m on a mission to find a brain sheet to help organize my day. Which ones do you all use?

    Childcare question

    Oh I also want to add she gets out of school almost days at 2 pm. So on the days I work days, I will not be able to pick her up or be home for her. The afterschool program at her school is completely booked up and she’s on a waitlist. So yeah... not sure how this is all going to pan out.

    Childcare question

    Hey fellow nurses! So I am happy to say I just recently passed the NCLEX and I’m officially an RN. Whoo hoo! Now that that hurdle has been overcome, I now face another one. So I’m a single mom to a 5-year-old girl who is starting Kindergarten next week. I was hired onto “varied” shifts so I’m going to be working days and nights depending on the month. Where I live there are hardly any daycare places that open early enough for me to be able to drop her off before school and even if there were, they don’t bus to her school or provide drop off services. To add to that, the earliest I can drop her off at her school is 7:20 AM, which isn’t going to work on the days I have to be at work at 7:00 AM. I do have help from her grandma and dad on the days he doesn’t work but he’s an EMT so his schedule is crazy as well. Anyway, I wasn’t sure where to post this but I just wanted some advice from other nurse parents with little ones. How do you do it!? Thanks in advance :)

    Pre nursing student has a question for current RNs

    Im a senior in a nursing program about to graduate and scared outta my mind bc I still don’t know where my passion lies. I got into nursing because I had a daughter and I wanted a job that I could support her with. That was my initial reason. Once I started taking the pre-reqs and got into my nursing classes, I LOVED learning about the science and physiology behind everything. I still love everything about the study of medicine. That is what drives me. Of course, I care about helping others as well but it definitely isn’t the main reason I continued with nursing. It is a great field with so many opportunities and avenues. I think you will do just fine! Best of luck to you.
