    The Magical Fundus Question

    Is there any magical potions when it comes to finding out where a fundus in. Sometimes I have such a hard time figuring it out. It almost always feels deviated to the right to me even if the patient has an empty bladder. Not to mention it takes me s long to go poking the poor girl in the belly while I am searching for it. Any tips would be very helpful. Thanks in advance.

    OB RN for 1 month and LOVING IT! :o)

    I started orientation on the postpartum unit at a 400 bed community hospital. r had been wokring on the med-surge flood there as an aide for a bout a year before. Anyhow. I love it. Sometimes I sit there and wonder if I am dreaming. Can I really be getting paid for this, and paid well? It's definately something I've wanted to do for so long and being able to do it right out of school makes me so thankful. I LOVE it! I love being with mamas and equally love being with the babies. In addition, the starting pay is the same if not more than most of the Boston hospitals and the incentives they offer are great (reimbursement for NCLEX, tution reimbursement and they also pay my loan payment every month).

    Things you'd rather go through than taking NCLEX again

    Continuing Education?

    In Massachusetts the CEU's are not required for the first year after passing the NCLEX. Other than that, they are usually offered in the work setting through inservices and what not.

I have no idea what the hospitals in Boston pay or the hospitals outside of Boston. Anbody know? Thanks;)

    Tall scrubs

    I feel your pain. I am 5.11 and take a 34 inch inseam. Many scrub makers make tall scrubs. Some I know of are Dickies and Crest. I'm sure if you look online and type in tall scrubs you will find some, BUT be sure to check the inseam. The funny thing is, manufacturers think 32 inch inseam is tall. Boy, do I have news for them. Good luck!

    just took nclex..stoped at 103

    I took mine July 13 and got about 105 questions. I thought for sure I had failed and left feeling miserable. Found out I passed 2 days later. i think most of us feel we failed even though we didn't. I wish you look and will look forward to hearing your results;)

    Good "Dancing/singing in your car before NCLEX" songs

    OKAY, this may sound a little bazarre but on the way to take my test I brought an Enya Cd to listen too. I calmed me down a lot and I believe lowered my pressure and pulse extremely before I went in to take the test. Anything by her is very relaxing BUT it's not really sing your heart out music. Good luck!
  13. Hi there. I have an interview tommorow morning for a position in a PostPartum unit. My dream job is L&D. I thought I wouldn't stand a chance since this hospital doesn't normally hire new grads. BUT, they have decided to interview me and I am so nervous. Does anyone have any tips for any of those typical questions asked on interviews. For example, "What can you bring to the table here on this floor?" Well, I sometimes lose confidence and can't fnd the right words to say. Any tips or suggestions would be wonderful. Thanks so much;)
