    "Donations"

    Just wondering what people think of donating items to patients. I work on a pediatric floor with patients whose parents/families never come to visit and don't have their own clothes. Is it crossing a boundary if "donations" randomly appear in their belongings? We accept clothing donations all the time from strangers - why not from staff? It wouldn't affect patient care in any way - the patients don't know you're giving them clothes - they're too young to know. Thoughts?

    HELP!!!!! PANICKING! Career change??

    I haven't been offered a job yet because I haven't interviewed. My position is being mediated through the Nurse Educator in the ED. They said I would either be able to transfer ASAP or after 6 months which is the hospital's policy. The former being very very unlikely. The Nurse educator said they would talk to the Manager. Waiting to hear back. I also don't want to waste the resources of the floor I am currently on and then transfer after 6 months. If it is possible to transfer ASAP, I would hate to think I can be terminated. I think the best option will be to learn as much as I can for a year and then transfer.

    That's terrifying and a very good point. I am leaning towards staying for a year and then transferring internally.

    I have a friend in the ED and they asked one of their ED leaders if it would be possible for me to transfer to the ED. The ED said they are always hiring and they would be excited to interview me to transfer to the ED. According to hospital policy, I would either be able to transfer in a minimum of 6 months or ASAP (the latter is very unlikely).

    I really like this option! This is more what I am leaning towards now. To keep any bridges from burning.

    I don't think we have a facility policy on time in position before recommending a move. I'm sure it's around 1 year at least but IT IS within the same hospital.

    It's more that I don't appreciate the specialty of the floor. It's not my passion. What is an appropriate time of waiting before changing floors/specialties?
  9. A month into orientation and I am facing a career choice. I accepted a position on "Floor A" almost immediately after receiving the offer because I wanted to lock down a position. I have the opportunity to move onto another unit that I want to work in. Would it look bad to move to another department in the same facility so soon? I don't want to waste the floor's time and resources in training me if I don't want to be there but I also don't want to leave a bad impression.
