  1. Hi all. I was wondering if anyone could give me some inside between the two hospitals Little Company of Mary in Torrance and Torrance Memorial. What is the difference between required shifts, weekend shifts and holiday shifts at these two hospitals as PRN. Also what are the required weekend shifts and holiday shifts for full time employees? Do Med-Surg staff participate directly in codes or does a predetermined staff do so? In my previous hospital, a hospitalist would act as team leader, an IV team member would act with the meds, respiratory therapist ambu bag, ect. Thanks all!

    Bombed Anatomy 1

    You can do it if that's what you want. I bombed ANP twice and passed on the 3rd try. Never failed another class again and never had much of a hard time in nursing school once I was in. IMO it was the institution that made the course exceedingly difficult to weed out applicants. I did however take the 3rd attempt at another school... Whether or not it is an option to go to another school is really your decision as a backup plan

    northside is good, but the dollar per hour pay wasn't as good as piedmont. the retirement plan though is better at northside.

    Piedmont definitely takes ADN. I have an ASN which is the same thing and I got hired on.

    Where to buy scrubs in Atlanta?

    I got mine at a scrub store a little north off cobb parkway in a shopping center. It's not far from 285 and is practically across the street from Best Buy.

    Working/worked at Piedmont Atlanta?

    The drug calc is easy if you can follow a given formula for insulin sliding scale dosages. A guy that was recently hired on my floor said the tests weren't bad and they give you a retry on the math one if you don't pass the first time, but you have to wait a certain amount of time before retaking.

    What should every orthopaedic nurse know?

    With ALIFs ice chips the whole first day because you don't want to risk a paralytic ileus with little to no bowel sounds. At temps of 99 I reinforce IBE use before giving them tylenol

    I heard from a guy that finished his residency that he did 2 12's on the floor, an 8 on the floor and 1 day of classroom per week for 12 or 13 weeks. Hope that helps...
