    who cannot care for ventilated TB pts?

    Did you consider asking the doctors from Infection Control what the rules/recommendations were regarding a pregnant woman caring for a vented pt with TB? I'm a pregnant nurse, working in the ED, who has been around pt's with TB, sometimes in isolation and sometimes not....that said, I've also been told that the vent is a closed system and the threat of catching TB is not much to worry about. In these cases what is "believed" may not be actual fact and the best thing would be to ask those who can provide information to either reduce or increase (!) a staff person's concern. That said, you can never escape that one incident where "something" happens, so allowing a pregnant nurse to care for another pt while taking over that person with TB is very much appreciated.

    NP vs CNS

    NP vs CNS

    I'm currently in school to become a psych NP. I've looked at the Missouri board of nursing website and saw that there were a number of CNSs registered but only 1 NP in St. Louis. I was wondering if anyone has information regarding why there would be more CNSs vs. NPs in St. Louis. I called the board of nursing and was told that both could prescribe medications and that she thought there was more of one than another due to insurance reimbursement issues and recommended I call the certifying body to ask questions. I checked the website of the certifying body and it looks to me like the CNS position may be more educational and the NP more direct care. I haven't followed up with a phone call yet. Just wondering if any of you out there have thoughts on this.......I'm planning on working in St. Louis when I graduate. Thanks
