  1. RN, ADN being obsolete

    Try heading a little north of you into New Mexico.
  2. Too old for OB?

    I'm 64 and still working in OB. There are days when I feel the effects of age but then there are those days even on my days off. The only concession I have made is that (as a travel nurse) I now tend to look for positions in community sized or smalle...
  3. New grad struggling to find jobs

    There was just a news article the other day here in Santa Fe, NM about the current need for nurses here. There is a brand new Presbyterian Hospital opening in the fall and the other hospital in town is also hiring - Christus St. Vincent. I'm a trave...
  4. Too old to travel nurse????

    Just to give you a little more encouragement, I'm now 63 and still traveling. After 21 years as a traveler I'm still getting jobs.
  5. I was working in a different area and applied for a job in a medically underserved area. I relocated across the country to be able to get an OB job and be trained in it.
  6. Joint Commission at the bedside. (Ominous horror movie music playing in the background)
  7. Don't Burn That Bridge When You Change Jobs

    A good example of this: I walked into my latest contract position to find that the director of the unit was a nurse with whom I had worked in a completely different city about 10 years ago when she was a staff nurse. And yes we recognized each other.
  8. How to call a provider at 3 am

    I'd add to this to check with your coworkers to see if anyone else anticipates needing to call the same provider. That way you can save them an extra wake up. As a side note, I once sent the police out to contact a doctor who was not responding. He w...

  10. Sometimes, it just Stinks

    For the worst odors: a few drops of tincture of benzoin on a cotton ball inside your mask. You won't be able to smell anything else.
  11. I was found out!

    I've been recognized from this site on multiple occasions. Not unexpectedly since my particular work situation is pretty rare (21 years a travel nurse - not too many of us). (And I don't look anything like Ned) I just make it a practice never to post...
  12. As a mandated reporter I don't see that the nurse had any other option than to follow protocol and call the police. How many times have we read a news article of something tragic happening to a child (or any vulnerable person) and asked "Why didn't a...
  13. Fingerprint failure

    Too many years of scrubbing will wear down your fingerprints. Find one of the places that does the electronic scanning of your fingerprints and you will have better results. I go through this with each new state in which I license.
  14. Singlism in the workplace

    This post should have come with a "coffee spew" warning!
  15. Hospital Ad Campaigns

    The most annoying ad I've seen was a billboard for a hospital ER advertising "make an appointment online and wait at home for your time". People - if you can wait at home - it's NOT an emergency!
