    Certification in Pediatric Emergency Nursing

    hello, there is a book available and author teaches review courses! here is the info i got-hope it helps. andy staff note: advertising or soliciting business are violations of the terms of service. this information may be shared privately but not publicly.
  3. I know this happens everytime something hits the news and the world has a collective freak out. I think I mostly need to vent. I work in a Pediatric ER in AZ and we have had droves of patients convinced they have Swine flu. And then demanding immediate testing. Most accept the education we give that so far the Swine Flu is reacting just like the normal flu and the lab is working with the CDC to send off all positive Influenza A swabs for further testing. Tylenol/Motrin/fluids/rest - repeat. And then you have the ones who sit on the internet and never turn off the news- they can not accept a virus is a virus and that the body will fight it off. ARRRGGGHHHH I want the weather to hit 115 degrees outside and kill off all these bugs for the summer so we can all get some rest.

    The Economy and cutbacks.........

    Got to love the economy! I work in ER and we recently had to cut back. We have an Acute and Critical side to our ER and our Acute care side used to be open 16 hours of the day, but now is only open 13. No one has been laid off yet, but shifts got switched up. After this happened there was a big meeting to discuss "big changes" that needed to happen. Apparently it was a brainstorming event on what to cut back on so that no one gets laid off. I was just curious how many others were facing layoffs and cutbacks and if anyone had any good ideas for cutbacks that would save jobs?

    Hey all, get this................

    Hey all, get this................ This is a true story, but I felt it belonged here as opposed to the general forum. The other day at work, a SOON TO BE new grad was bosting that she would know more than a doctor by the time she graduated!!! I don't think I have had that good of a laugh in a really long time! :chuckle :chuckle :roll :roll One of the other techs was having a go at it with her, I just sat back and laughed my head off! She'll learn! lol, As a new grad I was just happy not to kill my patients, we'll see how far being arogent gets her! Just had to share! Andy

    The Redneck and the Elevator

    Subject: The Redneck & the Elevator A redneck and his son were visiting a mall. Theywere amazed by almost everything they saw, butespecially by two shiny, silver walls that could moveapart and then slide back together again. The boyasked, "What is it?" The father (never having seen anelevator) responded, "Son, I have never seen anythinglike this in my life, I don't know what it is." Whilethe boy and his father were watching with amazement, afat old lady in a wheel chair rolled up to the movingwalls and pressed a button. The walls opened and thelady rolled between them into a small room. The wallsclosed and the boy and his father watched the smallcircular numbers above the walls light upsequentially. They continued to watch until it reachedthe last number and then the numbers began to light inthe reverse order. Finally the walls opened up againand a gorgeous, voluptuous 24-year-old blonde womanstepped out. The father, not taking his eyes off theyoung woman, said quietly to his son, "Go get yourmother."
