  1. I want to be a Nursery Nurse

    Most hospitals are asking for a bachelor of science in nursing. For nursery you would need NRP and STABLE certifications. Both one day courses. Good luck.
  2. Interview concern

    Hi ! I would really appriate any help . I have applied for a position in a training program at my current hospital in another department which is been my dream job. The only problem is I have to go to a panel interview after a 12 hour shift. They are...
  3. Find the largest stereo, and play the song "take this job, and shove it" while singing along at the top of my lungs and walking around the whole floor at 7 AM so both shifts hear it. I would also go around setting off random callights all night long...
  4. Please help me figure out what happened to my pt

    This was a topic of a staff meeting this last week. We are not allowed to combine breaks. We get 3 15 minute breaks, and one half hour break for a 12 hour shift. We were told if someone is covering your patient, and something happens we are both liab...
  5. "The Golden Hour"

    I think it is a really good idea. Unfortuantely at my hospital we do not have it. Although from 0630-0700 if there is an admission or transfer we only take the vital signs, and a quick assessment to make sure they are stable. If the patient is from P...
  6. Sad cases

    I see two sides of this arguement from my point of view #1 My Grandma was sick with pnuemonia, possible Colon CA (mass was so big they could not scope her to find out), and CHF. She was completely with it, and talking with us. My family had a really...
  7. Nurses in the path of Hurricane Irene

    I can't even imagine what your all going through. Good Luck, and be safe. Keep us updated if possible. We will be thinking of you all.
  8. Not the new grad problem I expected..

    I would probably do the first hospital. Just from experience of living in snow country for a while. When your tired driving home after night shift is not a time to be off guard on driving in more difficult conditions. It could be a safety issue. If t...
  9. I volunteered at my hospital that took me on as a new grad for 4 months twice a week, six hours each of those days. I did not get hired in the department I volunteered in, but another floor. I know I would have not gotten the job otherwise. I would h...
  10. Concerned! Need Some Advice

    It is so far hear say. You have not seen that behavior going on with your two eyes. It probably could be considered slander if it ruined his career. I would not turn in someone without witnessing a behavior. I would stay out of it. Only report what y...
  11. You never know what will happen with the office interview. It is always a good idea to make yourself more marketable. Especially in these horrible economic times. What do you have to loose besides a broader knowledge. I would not think twice about th...
  12. End of shift report

    We actually started a new system at my hospital. We have kardex, written report, and bedside report. I know it sounds like a lot. The evening shift has a form we fill out for each of our patients for pertient information like tests that were ordered,...
  13. Nursing with fibroids

    I have PCOS and have had fibroids. I use overnight pads, and ultra tampons at the same time. This may be TMI but just in case the tampons are not enough I have back up. You never know in our profession when an emergency comes up just as you were head...
  14. If there was a pregnant co-worker on my unit, and she was assigned an iso patient I would offer to switch assignments if it was ok with our charge nurse. Especially if it was shingles/chicken pox, CMV, or TB. I would also hope if I were pregnant my c...
  15. I dressed in black pants, and a nice dressy sweater that looked nice. I also did hair, and make up professionally. I do not think there is a need to wear a suit. Just dress to impress.
