    What rhythm is this?

    While the OP might now know what the rhythm is, this wasn't very helpful as he or she still has no idea how you made this determination.

    Stella Immanual MD and NPs with her

    She's much more than anti-mask and pro-hydroxychloroquine. I came across this earlier today.
  3. Unfortunately, many people seem to believe it does.

    I turned in my mentor because she was diverting morphine

    So what do you think would have been an appropriate action in this situation?

    Where can I get my NRP certification?

    I'm not sure whether it would be helpful, or not. However, if you do opt to do this I would recommend that you stay away from any course that does not include a hands on session. The AAP NRP course consists of several online modules, followed by a hands on skills demonstration. Information is available here: https://www.aap.org/en-us/continuing-medical-education/life-support/NRP/Pages/Provider.aspx. Best wishes.

    Inappropriate documentation?

    As this note was written after contacting the hospital, how was it not factual?
  7. What of these duties, with the exception of working in the laundry, are not included within the scope of nursing practice? You should consider yourself fortunate, nurses being furloughed or called off for low census is becoming a common occurrence. Best wishes.

    KN95 mask?

    It's still an annual OSHA requirement. However, considering the PPE shortages some facilities are accepting any fit test date. And, some only require the employee successfully complete a seal check.

    Texas license

    If you left TX and relocated to FL prior to FL joining the enhanced Nurse Licensure Compact (eNLC) this would be correct. As FL was not a member of the original NLC your TX license would lose its multi-state privileges and revert to a single-state license. After FL joined the eNLC (19 Jan 2018) your license did not automatically grant mult-state privileges, rather you would have needed to apply for multi-state privileges. had you done so, your TX license would have been placed in inactive status as you can only be licensed in one eNLC state with multi-state privilges. When you apply for your KY license, and indicate KY as your primary state of residency, your KY license should grant multi-state privileges. If your KY license does grant multi-state privileges your FL and TX licenses will be placed in inactive status. Best wishes.

    Texas license

  11. Source: "Black Americans disproportionately die in police Taser confrontations" (Reuters) https://www.reuters.com/article/us-minneapolis-police-protests-tasers-in/black-americans-disproportionately-die-in-police-taser-confrontations-idUSKBN23M16E Without knowing the details of these deaths, this is can be somewhat misleading. Did these individuals all die immediately after being Tased. Or, was this the end result of an incident in which an altercation began, the Taser was deployed, the altercation continued, and the application of force escalated resulting in the subsequent death of the victim. From your referenced article: The reports mentioned above can be viewed here: https://www.reuters.com/investigates/section/usa-taser/
  12. Have you seen video of the shooting? If not, it is available here: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/14/us/videos-rayshard-brooks-shooting-atlanta-police.html. While I generally try and hold judgement until sufficient evidence is available, it is hard to justify shooting a person in the back as they are running away.

    Compact license through Maryland BON?

    Do you currently live in MD, and maintain legal residency? Or, do live outside of MD, but consider MD as your “permanent residence?”

    Any advice on when to put in 2-wk notice??

    You don't need a "finely worded" letter or email. Rather, keep it short and simple. Something along the line of: I am submitting my resignation effective {date}. Thank you for the opportunities that you have provided me. You don't need to provide availability, if you feel the need to do so state that you will work all currently scheduled shifts onto, and including your last shift. And if you do this, make sure that you have a copy of the schedule. Best wishes.

    Will I automatically get a compact license

    Yes, so long as he or his is, and remains, a Florida resident.

    Call blocking question

    Have you considered getting a Google Voice number, using a Google account created solely for this purpose? You should be able to send all calls to voice mail with a greeting advising the to call the office if they need to contact you. You should also be able to receive an email transcript when you receive a voice mail.
