  1. It's all good except for...

    I had the same problem. I was new to ICU and I swear my preceptor hated me on sight. According to her, I could do nothing right, yet when I was given a new peceptor when she called off, I did fine. 36 hours a week of being told how awful I was, I ...
  2. Iv antibiotic running as primary?

    We run as primary.
  3. Night Shift Advice?

    My unit is moving to 12.5 hour shifts starting in November. We will now work 6A-6:30P and 6P-6:30A. I have done night shifts prior, but only as an 8 hour shift, not 12. Early evenings were set aside so I could get a nap in before going to work, wh...
  4. Vetpro

    Easiest way for me to work through it and make sure all of my dates were correct was to keep my resume with me and refer to it when I was going through the form. It didn't take long to do, it just made me have to look at the resume a lot. I also ha...
  5. Mispronunciations That Drive You Nuts

    Ambalance instead of Ambulance.... Tydenol instead of Tylenol... Outside of work... "To be Pacific" Really, you're being an Ocean? "Don't take it Personal" I'm not taking it personal, but I'm taking it personally.... "Adverdisment" "Coopon"
  6. Charge Nurse Pay

    Zip. And nothing extra for BSN either.
  7. Tablet advice & input

    I have both an IPad and a Kindle as well as a smart phone. I use the Kindle more than I do the IPad, although I have a feeling that is going to change next semester since I just heard about Moxtra. I also have a laptop and desktop. I just can't be...
  8. How much of your cohort did you "lose"?

    We lost a lot all the way up through Sophomore year. Mostly it was because they didn't pass the prereqs. One student in first semester Soph failed Anatomy twice, and was failing Micro and Assessment. Last fall, half of my class (who are all very i...
  9. What specialty do you want and not want to work in?

    It is funny how your mind changes after your rotations. After mine, I definitely do not want OB/Peds. A lot of this could be due to my clinical instructor though. But, L&D/Maternity... you can have it... I just finished up Psych and Community...
  10. Rough night in clinical, feeling discouraged.

    You're fine. Everyone has shifts like that. It sounds like you have your time management and assessment skills down. Stuff happens. Don't be so hard on yourself, and congratulations on your upcoming graduation. :)
  11. Hate being a CNA

    I love being a nursing assistant, but in my first job, I really hated my job. It wasn't the job itself, but due to having no orientation and RNs who tried to constantly get me to go outside my scope of practice to do tasks I was not qualified to do. ...
  12. Graduate RN at 57 years old

    Whoo Hoo! Another one who pursued the dream that was over the age of 40! It's so nice to find another who decided to just go for it. I went back at 46 to start my BSN program. I did 4 years of part time before finally winning a scholarship at wor...
  13. FINAL SEMESTER!

    I'm heading into my final semester as well. There are days that I sit back and wonder how I ever got to this point. When I started part time 5 years ago, this final semester seemed so far off... like the day would never get here. While I'm happy t...
  14. The Little Old Lady

    I was doing the usual end of shift vitals when I walked past what had been an empty room all day. In the room, chair sat a very petite lady looking very lost and scared. I walked in, shook her hand, and introduced myself. She told me her name and fol...
  15. School starts Monday!! AHHHH!!

    I start on Tuesday. Since I have to go part time, I'm just doing 2 General Ed classes. I'm not permitted to do any Nursing classes until I have all of my sciences done.
