  1. I've worked nights for 2.5 years, so I know how to sleep during the day. My baby is 5 months old, my husband is VERY helpful, and we'd utilize daycare so I can sleep. Any tips or tricks for how to work three 12-hour shifts with an infant?

    Working Nightshift as a New Mommy

    I worked nights for the last 2.5 years. I quit this past summer to stay home with my son. Unfortunately, I need to return to work. I have a final interview for a job in OB. OB is my passion, I absolutely love it. My problem: The OB job openings is 12 hour Full time night shifts with call. I'm trying to figure out how to make it work with daycare and sleeping. My husband could take the baby to daycare in the mornings after I work. How does everyone do it?
  3. I'm hosting an inservice tomorrow and will be bringing hand outs of pressure points, pictures of proper positioning for patients who have been turned, and handing out turning schedules (as well as pocket manuals with patient care tips). I want to have a wheelchair and cushions to demonstrate how full an air cushion should be and proper positioning in a wheel chair. What else should I do to inform about body mechanics? If I incorporate transfers (from bed to chair, chair to toilet) what should I include? I'm new to education, and will be assisted in this with the DON but I wanted to make sure I covered lal my bases.

    restorative nursing

    New to restorative nursing and LTC!!! When you say that an RA is doing however many programs, does that mean that there are that many residents with restorative programs or that there are that many programs total? I know you can get reimbursed for 2 per resident. Any other resources, tips, or tricks you can offer?

    Minor's right to refuse

    Here's the full scoop. I'm a RN now, but eventually I will be a FNP (God willing!) after I complete my classes. I know how to pass the buck to the Doctor, but it got me thinking about when I can't pass the buck. How do I get Mom out of the room? Or if mom refuses to leave the room to let me discuss with her daughter, how the heck do I handle something like that? I guess I have a long enough way to go with school, that I'm just trying to figure out how to troubleshoot before I am in that situation! (Does that make sense?)

    Minor's right to refuse

    But how do I say it to the mom and teen without coming off rude or uncaring?

    Minor's right to refuse

    If you have a patient's parent who is requesting her daughter to be put on birth control when the daughter says she is not having sex, how can you diplomatically handle it? Id never want to force a patient to do something, but want to avoid parent hostility.

    Cross Post: Accepting Job Offer while Pregnant

    I got the job offer, negotiated the pay and start date, and then told him I was pregnant. He asked my maternity plans and I said to work until I delivered, and then 4-6 weeks off based on what the Dr decided. He sounded okay with it, and told me all the information that I'd need for when HR calls tomorrow :) Thanks for all your help-- what a load off my mind. Now I just need to resign from my other job

    Cross Post: Accepting Job Offer while Pregnant

    I want to let him know before I begin the job, because I'd rather not leave my old one if they're going to find an excuse to fire me, or not let me take time off for my maternity leave (so I would have to quit when I delivered) or something else along those lines. I know I won't be covered by FMLA and I'm covered at my current job. I would feel uncomfortable not letting htem know when I began. I was going to accept the job, negotiate pay and start date, and then tell him in the same conversation. Does anyone think that would be inappropriate?

    Cross Post: Accepting Job Offer while Pregnant

    Thanks for the input. With everyone's assistance, and some old posts, I've called back the administrator. I was going to accept the job, discuss pay, start date, and then say "I just wanted to be upfront that I am pregnant and due September 10th". I'm not sure if I should say anything else? I'm waiting for the call back! Nervous!
  12. I just receieved a phone call from a facility I had four interviews with. The last interview (and all) went very well. I missed the phone call but they left a message. I'm anticipating a job offer. If they offer the job, I am 22 weeks pregnant. I feel that it would be fairly obvious from interviews, but I did wear a bulky blazer (the only suit I could buy on short notice that fit!) The administrator of the nursing home is the one I must call back. I'm a very sincere person. I'm not a very good liar, and I'm certainly very torn up about what the proper thing to do is. I don't want to affect anyone else, and know that my impending leave may hurt someone. I know they can't retract the job offer becuase I'm pregnant, but I also know I have to be careful, because I'm not yet covered by FMLA If they offer the job, should I thank them, accept, and announce "as you probably know, I'm 22 weeks pregnant..."? Should I wait to notify HR after accepting? Or should I wait til my first day? Or first week?

    CMEs vs CEUs

    I understand that CMEs are for physicians and CEUs are for nurses. However, if I took a genetics quiz on the March of Dimes website and received CMEs, that means I can't use it as CEUs right? It would have to specify CEU to be counted?
