  1. scrubs

    I am also 6'5" and weigh 285. I buy my scrubs at bigandtallmart.com. Nothing fancy, one shirt pocket and a pocket for my wallet. The 2xlt fit well and are made of a heavy material. 28.00/set -Jason
  2. Funny Sign In Slips

    A few days ago had this one....exactly what she wrote on the sign-in sheet... "I am 9 weeks pregnant and having virginal bleeding" -jason
  3. I use craigslist quite a bit and people always have items 'for sell'. Also go to the post office a few times a week and when I use my card the clerk asks me every time ' is that credik or debit'. She is such a nice lady but that drives me nuts. :) -...
  4. Tpapn

    I sent you a pm. Don't get discouraged about rejection because it is going to happen. I went on many interviews before i got hired. Most of them went great until I mentioned 'TPAPN' then it was 'we'll let you know' only to never hear from them des...
  5. ED Job Interview - any advice?

  7. New Grad-friendly Hospitals in S. TX?

  10. Interview tomorrow~~Need HELP!

    I had an interview last week and here is one that caught me off guard: Tell me about a time you witnessed someone do something unethical or dishonest, what did you do?
  11. Houston

    I agree with Jaky, it all depends if you like to commute in traffic, or want to live and work in the suburbs. There are many hospitals in the burbs - The Woodlands has several, Cy-Fair/1960 has several, Sugarland, Clear Lake, Conroe, etc. Where are y...
  12. Relocating to Houston

    There are tons of hospitals in the Houston and surrounding areas. Try going to monster.com and see all the opportunities. It really depends where you want to live. The downtown 'Medical Center' hospitals tend to pay better but there is a higher co...
  13. Interview with Davita!

    Just curious what to expect. I want to change specialties and get in to HD and am wondering if most nurses get hired without experience. Thanks for any information you have. regards, jason

  15. Lithotripsy gone bad?

    Did they give you anything for sedation? When i worked in OP surgery we did litho's 2 days a week and i never heard of anyone not be able to tolerate the procedure. They were all done under conscious sedation. I would write a complaint to the admi...
