    New Grad NICU RN...tips/advice!

    I recently graduated nursing school with my BSN and will begin working in the NICU shortly! I am beyond excited, as this has been my dream specialty for years and arguably one of the influences behind why I went to nursing school in the first place. That being said, I would really love to hear some advice from nurses in this field regarding things I might expect to experience/to be prepared for. Best things to keep on hand, resources/books to have... really just any of your best tips for a new grad nurse starting out in the NICU! Thank you 🙂
  2. Hey y'all! Does anyone know/have any information on how long it takes for the Pennsylvania BON to update the website with your RN License? I took my NCLEX and passed on June 16th but my license is still not posted. I don't know if PA is just really backed up or not (I think online it says it can take up to 30 days) but I was wondering how long it took anyone getting licensed in PA to have it posted after passing? Thanks in advance 🙂

    Abdominal Assessment for NCLEX

    I am planning on taking the NCLEX in a few weeks and realized that I may have been taught the wrong order to conduct an abdominal assessment. If I can remember correctly, my nursing school taught us to "Inspect, Auscultate, Palpate, then Percuss". However, on UWorld it seems like they are saying to "Inspect, Auscultate, Percuss, then Palpate". Does anyone know what the correct order actually is and what would likely be used by NCLEX? I can imagine it's probably a good drag and drop question so I want to be prepared!
