  1. IM injection

    Can you do IM injection on the arm with matured fistula or graft? We're giving Hepatitis vaccine and it comes in 2 syringes. I always give both shots in one arm, non AVF arm but some senior nurses do give in arm with AVF. What do you do in your unit?
  2. To Filipino Nurses in NEW ZEALAND? Have questions please..

    US hospitals prefer hiring trained and experienced nurses. It's all about funding allocation, you know. It's more expensive to train a new grad than to hire an experienced imported nurse. Having said that, it doesn't mean that US hospitals are keen t...

  8. Foreign Nurses Immigrating to NZ

    It's a competency course or the "bridging" course. It's more of safety thing, actually. More of safe nursing practice in terms of clinical and cultural aspect. Don't worry, it's not so hard as you may thought so. It's not like you're back to college ...

  15. interesting article on nurses in NZ

    I reckon some facilities such as nursing hospitals and resthomes are so lax. I used to work in nursing hospital, and the management cut the number of nurses working in the afternoon shift (from 2 nurses to 1) due to insufficient budget. Consequently,...
