    Research Nursing, my experience

    Research Nursing is VERY different. I work PRN as a Clinical Research Coordinator/ Research Nurse for M3 Wake Research here in Raleigh, NC. I work mainly Phase 1. There CAN be a "bedside" component. We recently had a versed study via autoinjector. On...

    RN to Paramedic

    After you get your EMT & Paramedic, look at Flight Nursing. You can "get some skills in" with some scene calls. You can intubate, needle d, and run all the lines you want, without a large pay cut! Look at your CCT / Flight programs, you may only ...

    Am I being too picky on a job or is it just bad luck?

    I don't see an issue with being "picky", you should be! In the end, it's YOUR time invested! If the position doesn't pay what you feel you should earn, walking away can be a good choice! On the other hand, don't miss an opportunity to better yourself...

    Is it legal to chart for something you didn't do?

    UWorld NCLEX

    In the US, the NCSBN set the standards for school curriculum. We are taught topics that the NCLEX test on, based on the NCSBN standard. Practice in the "field" does not "necessarily" mirror the standards of the NCSBN. This could be why it's so diffic...

    UWorld NCLEX

    According to the NCSBN, the NCLEX test your ability to perform as a nurse "entry-level". With that said, I saw that you are a foreign grad. FIRST, I would make sure that my school's curriculum was "in-line" with what the NCSBN set forth. My school pr...

    UWorld NCLEX

    I took NCLEX on May 28th. I used UWorld also. I only did about 75% of the test bank. My percentage was 63%. I also listen to Mark Klimek audio & downloaded his books. My school used HESI, so I passed the exit HESI and CAT HESI. I only seriously p...
