    Critical Care Eliticism?

    Dating my self here! They didn't know what to do with me so was transferred to a hospital with a NICU. Alls well that ends well.

    Critical Care Eliticism?

    I would have loved to have a nurse with critical care IV skills when I was on a PP floor but had not delivered. I needed an IV stat and it took several tries to get it right. I would say do what YOU want!

    My sincere condolences to you. We had expected my Mother's death for 5 years, but it was still difficult to bear. Adjusting to a "new normal" will not be easy especially without the routine of your long time job. I went to a grief recovery group that helped immensely. Blessings to you.

    Reporting abuse against a very rich facility

    Honestly, speaking from years of experience of investigating these types of complaints,...it usually ends up being a contest of he said she said. Verbal abuse is very difficult to cite. You are obviously not following your policy about reporting abuse. All abuse is to be reported to the worker's direct supervisor and kept confidential. hope this helps

    PMHNP Vs. Psychiatry MD

    please look at going to med school. I have 2 daughters that have gone that route. There are so many scholarships available. Both my daughters graduated debt free. Best of luck to you!

    Lazy patient

    Your patients are to be taken care of. They are not scored individuals to be analyzed if they can "do it or not". What has happened to human compassion? Feel free to flame away.

    What to do about DNP and flu shot?

    Still involve patient contact through the physician and / or nurse contact. And the patients that might in the office when you show up. Think about it.

    Should I quit my job to study for NCLEX?

    Absolutely not. Most of my success from taking my boards, is what I learned by working. Please don't worry, you still have time to study. Honestly you shouldn't have to study. You should have been taught what you need to know.

    Tips for dealing with techs/pct’s as a new grad

    This is also true in LTC. When I was a surveyor and had a question about a patient, I would ask their RN who the PCT was. Often, they did not know and that , to me , was very concerning.

    Anyone left TNPAP before contract end?

    Are you saying that when you went to treatment, you were told to self report and then begin TNPAP ?

    I worked for the BON for my state and I will say that schools will accept you. However, that does not mean that will earn an ATT because of your past criminal history. If you call the BON of your state. you most likely receive a reply such as we treat these applications on a case by case basis. Which means nothing.

    Question: Tooth or Foot First?

    I, too, thought, oh a joke!

    Any Other State Like Texas

    even if expunged cases are not required to be disclosed, they will show up and taken into consideration in several states with an FBI level background check.

    Any Other State Like Texas

    I believe there are several states where non disclosure is an option. Just know that a fingerprint based background check will show all events expunged or not.

    Got my ATT: Is this a good/bad sign?

    Yes it is a good sign

    Nursing with misdemeanor assault charge

    You may be looking at a situation of not being able to obtain licensure as a nurse. Schools will allow you to enroll but cannot predict the BON position of granting a license.

    Recent Arrest

    How many times have I heard, the weed, drugs, alcohol in the car weren't mine when I worked for the BON in my state. Oh my goodness, as the previous poster stated, please wait until you have gotten yourself together before you attempt to learn an advanced nursing role. You most likely will not be accepted into the program after any background check is completed. You may have your RN license called into question as well it should be.

    Rehab? Asking for a future nurse

    If you are truly living a sober life, then it is nobodies business what you went through before you became a nurse. Unless, you have criminal charges such as a DUI. then I would proceed as you desire making certain to keep a sober path.

    Get your med surg experience early!

    Things must be so different now...I went straight out of my BSN program to the SICU taking care of fresh open hearts. Then the ER and then the OR in a three year period. I had a very diverse and effective career including psych and then public health nursing. All the while having never worked med surg in my life.
  22. beachbabe86

    Why is BSN required for CRNA?

    I stopped reading at this point...so are you in med school or not?? If so, why are you hanging around a nurses board???
  23. midlevel is what is common here in Florida.
