  1. New Grad in Nashville

    I ended up at Saint Thomas West, and am pretty happy there! The residency program is a good one.
  2. Tristar Nashville 2019 New Grad

    How did it go for you guys? Are you happy at HCA?
  3. Anyone know of an Online US IV Class

    Oh, actually just realized who OP is! I've been commenting on posts so I can get the necessary 15 comments to PM you ? I'm in a similar position you were in with choosing a new grad program. About to accept a position at Centennial for PRN nurse exte...
  4. Anyone know of an Online US IV Class

    Thanks for asking this. I've been curious of the same thing.
  5. Standard COVID Precautions

    I have some questions about how hospitals nationwide are handling COVID. Mainly curious about hotspots, but all answers appreciated. 1) Do you wear N95s all day, outside of COVID+ rooms? 2) Is your hospital testing all patients, or only those...

    Congrats! Thank you for sharing. Super helpful.
  7. Help! I Can't Hear Lung Sounds

    I say you find a friend and ask for help. Tell them you're having trouble hearing, and can they use their stethoscope, put it in the right place so they can hear, then give you the earpiece? I do this pretty frequently with weird heart sounds. I know...

    I graduate in December. Trying to figure out the next step. Has anyone heard good or bad things about any hospitals in Nashville, excluding Vanderbilt? I'm so thrown by the fact that Centennial doesn't use PCTs on most floors and still has a 5:1 rati...

  10. Study Tips

    What worked for me: Recording lecture. Listen to it while you're driving. Listen to it on 2x speed with your notes in front of you. Have notes in different colors. If you can't remember the exact info, you can at least remember it's in a certai...
  11. HELP! Prioritizing nursing intervention

    I'd talk with your classmates. Quick thoughts from me: Always culture before administering ABX. So grab that and your other bloodwork before Rocephin. ABC, so oxygen first. Some of these routine things are weird, so like is it time to take vital si...
  12. Anyone else make a stupid med error as a student?

    Yeah, learn from it but I think you're good to go. Thank you for sharing with us so that we can also learn. So the computer didn't catch it when you scanned the med?
  13. New Grad in Nashville

    Was trying to revive this board but then bumped down my question. Would love some answers, so bumping it back up!
  14. Moving to Tennessee

    Chattanooga is a wonderful place. I've heard good things about Erlanger. Cost of living is much more reasonable than Nashville, but it's more small-town too. I haven't lived there, but have lived in all directions of Nashville. I like east Nashville ...
  15. St. Thomas Nurse Residency 2021

    Did you guys get in and, if so, did you have letters of recommendation?
