  1. Working as RN before going on to grad school?

    I would suggest a year or two of experience before you go back to school. It can be really challenging to find a job. The experience may even help with networking for jobs later on. I know someone that wanted to teach and went straight into an MSN...
  2. Should I mention this in an interview?

    This is what I advise students to say for where they see themselves in 5 years. It can be modified for any unit. "I would like to feel comfortable in my position and have greater responsibilities and the opportunity to serve on unit committees. I ...
  3. Six Pieces of Advice for New Nurses

    I teach in a BSN program. This year, half of the students requested to do preceptorship on an L&D or post-partum unit. We do mock interviews the semester they graduate and most of them want to work in that environment or in peds. I try to prep...
  4. PhD or DNP to become Faculty?

    I meant to respond to this earlier and I apologize for the delayed response. Prior to my PhD program, I worked as a Clinical Research Nurse. I worked with drug and device companies to assist with clinical trials. I worked at a very large hospital ...
  5. PhD or DNP to become Faculty?

    Have you thought about teaching clinicals at your local school? My city has a CC and University and the requirements are 3 years bedside experience with a BSN. This will give you a pretty good idea if you really want to teach long term. This exper...
  6. Leaving the bedside

    It sounds like you're burned out. I was that way several years ago and I went part-time. Going down to 2 days a week made a big difference. I left the bedside for a couple years and worked in research. Now I'm per diem and I only need to work 1 s...
  7. I don't understand bsn to dnp programs

    The University of Arizona has a BSN to DNP program with a psych specialty. I'm in the PhD program and I know some people that have completed the PMHNP program and they enjoyed the program. I've been working as a TA with the first year DNP students....
  8. Creating CRFs from scratch

    http://www.amazon.com/Clinical-Trials-Manual-Research-Institute/dp/1405195150/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1373760233&sr=8-1&keywords=duke+clinical+trials I am not affiliated with Duke, but this book is so incredibly helpful. One of our regula...
  9. Nurse Researcher Interview

    I have a masters degree in clinical research management. I've only been working in research for a couple months as a research nurse. It's a lot of coordination of care. Is this the kind of person you are looking to speak with? I wanted to do a Ph...
  10. Thought I would have a job by now. Getting depressed

    A couple years ago I did some work with ****** ******* Clinics. It was really easy to get hired. They do flu shots. You have to be really on top of it to get shifts. It should be nationwide. I still get emails from them every year. Look into it...
  11. 57 and need to start over YET AGAIN!

    I would start applying for jobs. The hospital I worked for closed last year. I was transferred to another hospital in the same organization. It was so incredibly depressing to see a hospital that I enjoyed working for close its doors. It makes me...
  12. Float pool, would I be in over my head?

    I would take the job. I didn't even have 10 shifts of orientation at my last two jobs. More like 5 to 6 and I was permanent staff. Some hospitals will even let you pick 3 units that you are willing to work. If you have a really bad shift you can ...
  13. Typical Raise Schedule

    It used to be that our raises were based on personal performance. They have now moved to unit based performance. They look at falls, budget, patient satisfaction, turnover, etc. Then they look at whether the hospital as a whole is doing okay finan...
  14. Mandatory Flu Vaccines- How do you feel?

    I find it really interesting that everyone believes it is safe in pregnancy. This is the insert for the flu vaccine that GlaxoSmithKline produces. The first page states that safety and efficacy has not been established in pregnant women or mothers....
  15. what specialties are good for travel nursing?

    If you do go into a specialty such as pediatric ER, one year of experience will not be enough. You can travel with a year of med-surg experience with no problems. I don't know this for sure, but I have a feeling that they will want more than a year...
