  1. Hi, I am a PMHNP that works in child and adolescent psychiatry. I have a full-time job, but I'm curious if there are jobs out there (prefer telehealth) to work PRN for extra money. I'm having a hard time finding something specifically for weeke...

    anion gap acidosis

    Maybe the OP was trying to seek out nurses who have experience with this phenomenon on a daily basis as they are adjusting to their role as an ICU nurse. Just think! All that time you spent writing your sassy reply you could have spent...gasp!...help...
  3. Notice how CRNA programs don't have schools like this? Yet they make the most in the nursing industry. There are so many posts about FNPs not making enough, yet they seem to be the focus of these for-profit schools. I would be curious to see what wou...

    Open up....Spoonfed report

    We have switched to bedside report and this has eliminated a lot of these problems. I wonder if other people that do bedside report continue to have these same problems or if they have improved?
  5. My advise is to not attend either one. Go for your associates RN at a community college ( a fraction of the price of globe university ) or choose a state university if you want to get your BSN. MN is so saturated with nurses right now, but some are s...
  6. I'm sorry, but it is not a college's responsibility to hold your hand and guarantee a job for you. Maybe you should sue the people who won't hire you instead, they probably have a lot more money than your school!

    HELP IN MN

    There are no schools in st. cloud where you can get your ADN. St. Cloud State has a BSN program, but I know you don't want to wait that long. Central Lakes college in Brainerd or Anoka Ramsey Com. College in Coon Rapids are the two closest to you in ...

    Senate passes health care bill

    I'm just saying that for people who receive high quality insurance from their employer will probably not have it, because their employer will stop buying that insurance plan and opt for the cheaper government option. If they do this then the people w...

    Senate passes health care bill

    This bill will help nurses find jobs, but do you think there will be any incentive to become a doctor with this bill? Will it create a shortage of doctors? Do you think that this will give incentives for companies to create new medical devices that c...

    May grad starting to look for NICU or Pediatric position

    I really would not get my hopes up too high. Not to sound like a downer, but the new grad RN market is terrible right now. There have been major lay offs at almost all major hospitals.These specialty areas will probably not hire a new grad. If I were...

    help?! PEG tube incident

    I know! Those stupid pills clog the j-tubes all the time at my work. Also, when you crush the pills and soak them in warm water draw the solution up in a 10 ml syringe. If it goes up the 10 ml syringe ok then it probably won't clog the tube. If you h...

    Maple Grove Hospital

    I've heard that there is a waiting list of people to get interviews there....North memorial layed off lots of their RNs last spring/summer and I know many are trying to get back into their system.
  14. I wonder if validating their feelings would be helpful at all? For example saying something along the lines of "It sounds like you are concerned that staff are not providing the right care to your loved one?" or maybe "Are you concerned that I haven ...

    Advice please - new to nursing

    It may be difficult to get a job at a hospital as your first job as a CNA...at least that's the trend I was seeing from most of my classmates when I was at the tech college. The economy is slow right now of course, but working your butt off in a nurs...
