  1. Firstly, I’m sorry it’s been such a rough year! I think you have a few options. 1) Let your current employer know your GN license is going to expire before you can become a licensed RN, and see if they will put you on desk duty (think HUC...

    Is Hospital Inpatient Rehab Considered “ACUTE CARE”?

    Thank you. I am interested to know if this would fulfill the “acute care experience” wanted for other job opportunity in the future. The reason I ask is because I had heard another nurse on this website who worked in a freestanding rehabilitatio...

    Returning to Work After COVID

    That was never safe, though. For anybody, including yourself. Please take the time you need to get better. I know you’ve been under a lot of stress the last few months and your body is probably in revolt mode. I have no tips for how to pre...
  4. Can anybody shed light on this? I work on an inpatient rehab unit inside a level 1 trauma hospital. We do and see a lot that the med-surg nurses do: respond to critical lab values, hang blood, TPN, code sepsis, code stroke, rapids, no Tele...
  5. I think it sounds like an amazing opportunity but I really like working with people seeking recovery. It will definitely be a challenge in terms of getting treated pretty crappy by a lot of the patients since detoxing is probably like hell. It will a...

    I hate being a nurse…

    I actually really understand this in a deep level. My unit is similar in that it is, IMO, one of the best in the entire hospital. People are more stable on my floor than most others in the hospital and our ratios are not as crazy because we are a clo...

    School Not Allowing Us to take NCLEX

    This is totally shady and I hope you do hire a lawyer and hold this school accountable. Lawyers are expensive but if the one you spoke to really is the most skilled and experienced with this school and to handle an issue like this, they will b...

    I hate being a nurse…

    I think it’s a good question to help OP clarify values and get back in touch with what her hopes and dreams were for the profession as a reminder. Because I think she probably had strong reasons for pursuing nursing, AEB the seriousness with which sh...

    Panic attacks and losing my mind

    I totally agree with the person above who said not to put much thought into the current work situation. I know, easier said that done! But put all the energy into planning an immediate escape from this employer and finding someone else who will enabl...
  10. I think it may be the area but I could be wrong. Maybe it would come down to your willingness to relocate, but I get that’s a daunting prospect if you could potentially stay where you are and get some time in as an acute care RN at the bedside and th...
  11. I would probably connect with Amanda Guarniere from the “Nurse Becoming” podcast. She is also the owner of TheResumeRX and The NP Society forum. I took some of her courses and listen to her podcast sometimes and find her very helpful! She helps ...

    53 yrs old, no BSN and feels helpless

    Your story is an interesting one, as is what you said about the “RN, LPC” licenses behind one’s name. My sister and I both have BA’s in psych, and she went back to school for her MA LPC, and I went accelerated nursing school for my BSN. I...

    MedSurg to Dialysis Transition

    I would be curious about this too. I’ve thought about dialysis because I think it might work well for my personality - high anxiety & prefer to do one thing at a time, some OCD traits, very organized at work and always finding new/better pro...

    Is it anxiety or do I hate being a nurse?

    I appreciate reading this. I am struggling as a new nurse in a hospital setting even on an acute inpatient rehab unit. I did med-surg float for a very brief time and could honestly see why some of the younger nurses joked about being suicidal, whic...
  15. There aren’t a lot of reasons I can think of that a person would need ADA reasonable accommodations to be off night shift, save for like difficulty driving in the dark (which still seems unlikely since both day and night shift nurses on 12s both driv...
