  2. How can you help me?...Let me name the ways...

    Please do so. Quite frequently we are appreciated in the moment but rarely in a long term, out-look changing way. I worked on a Peds BMT floor where we worked with the children and their families for months and months. I can assure you that the most ...
  3. Hey 16 yo. I, as well as Ludi, wish I had had a plan like yours at 16 yo. I didn't earn my license until I was 40 yo. I have a couple of suggestions, if you are willing. Get into the health care field now. There are spots that only require a certific...
  4. 10 year old died after I performed CPR

    Time is the greatest asset for a wounded heart/soul. For me, crying, praying, anger... were ineffective. Time has taught me that time from the incident is the only effective way to gain perspective and healing. By the way, good job nurse, for jumping...
  5. New Job in PACU!

    I couldn't agree more with what brownbook posted. I would like to add a few of my own. Demerol is under used/available to PACU RN's. It has good, longer term pain control and a secondary trait that comes in handy. General anesthesia pt.s can have che...

  9. New OR nurse needs some advice

    Hey smiggers, Hang in there. NO ONE knows everything about the O.R., not even 20 year vets. We have a saying around our O.R. whenever a surgeon requests some obscure clamp, retractor, lap instrument or whatever, we share the info with the others and ...

    You could try the A.O R.N. magazines. They can get a little item specific, but they provide a lot of very good info. I've been a circulating nurse for just 7 months now, still learning the details but completely loving it. Good luck, Gary
