    Wellstar WEO

    Hi everyone: can anyone tell me what the pay and benefits are for weekend option? Cannot find it on the Wellstar Careers site. How many days/hours is weekend option? Thanks.

    Calling all VNA RNs

    Saw this on a job board: Care Coordination Coach, RN position. Please let me know what this entails, and what kind of nursing background would be best, for this. Thanks.

    Second interview tomorrow

    Congratulations! I know you are as happy as I am! What, exactly, is a crisis hospice? I have not come across this term. Is it freestanding or do you go to the home? Did you find your second interview was similar to mine?

    Second interview tomorrow

    It went well, I got the job. They asked me about my skills-level in detail, created "what would you do in this case" scenarios, and explained orientation, their expectations and some company policy. Good luck to you! Why is dialysis "the hell hole of nursing"? I think that I have heard that about almost every nursing discipline except L&D and MB.:wink2:

    Second interview tomorrow

    Hi All: I have been called back for a second interview for PRN Case Mgr. Hospice RN. My first interview, quite awhile back, went over an hour. What on earth are they going to ask me this time? All posts and tips are appreciated.:)

    Learn To Say It Correctly!!

    The beginning sound of the spoken letter "R", alone, is similar to that of a short A, as in art, artichoke, articulation, etc., all of which demand "an" before them. If you provide me with the rule, I promise never to use "AN" improperly, again. Thanks, Stanley.

    Question (now I'm truly confused): why would one say "AN art exhibit by A RN"? Thanks.

    !Please help this school nurse!

    Administration told her we needed documentation. So far, none has come.

    !Please help this school nurse!

    I spoke to my Nursing supervisor and my school principal about everyone's helpful comments. Nursing said it was district policy to call 911-she needs to get us confirmation about just what it is she has, and treatment, from her doctor. The principal then presented this to her, and she is supposed to bring documentation, otherwise, 911 will be called. I am still waiting at this point. Many thanks to you all.

    Thank you all for your most helpful advice and direction. I have no access to employee hiring records or health histories. I will attend Cardiac Rehab Education with a family member tomorrow at the local hospital, and see if they cannot shed more light on this. I, too, find it "fishy" that one cannot name what sounds like a most serious condition. I have tried to "talk sense" to no avail. I would think that the cardiologist would prevent this employee from driving!

    !Please help this school nurse!

    An employee came to me the other day and told me about her "heart problem" but could not tell me the name of it! She said she sometimes faints and her heart stops for "up to 40 seconds". This has been happening less and less since 5th grade, when it first happened. She is now in her twenties, and said that her doctors said she could get a pacer or perhaps "grow out of it". She does not want 911 called because, once at the hospital, they put her through "all the same tests every time", and she already knows what she has. She said she has the ability to stop these events, by "icing herself all over" but will pay for it the next couple of days as that causes the events to increase. Can someone please tell me what this condition is, and perhaps point me to a website where I can get more information, for myself and the employee? Also, any advice would be a godsend. I am very uncomfortable dancing in the dark, especially since administration doesn't have anymore information than I do. Sinus block? Sick sinus syndrome? She said it has a "really long name". THANKS!

    Please help-urgent!

    Can anyone direct me to where I can find care plans for a newly diagnosed, mentally ill (schizophrenic) student? At the very least, I'd like to get an individual health care plan in before the end of the school year, with an eye on an IEP for next school year. At this time, the student is functioning on meds, but I have to look towards the times school might be missed due to hospitalizations, counseling & doctor appointments, etc. I'm not so sure all the teachers understand the chronic nature of the illness, and its effect on learning. Thanks!

    "Nurses are doers of the Word." Thank you for summarizing the holiness of Nursing.
