    Thank you so much, great idea! My Psych rotation in school was only 6 weeks and didn't focus on Peds and it was 12 years ago! I will def look into it. THANK YOU!

    Certified Peds Nurse Exam-Studying

    I don't know what the SPN course is. All I know is that I'm still sitting here trying to decide what to buy, lol. The books are so expensive. $80 plus $18.00 shipping. Study cards are $50 plus shipping, it's crazy. I've done all the free questions on...

    Nebulizer/MDI for toddlers advice

    It's not an easy task. I hope it's been figured out by now since it's 2019. I wish I had the time to do that fantastic technique, but I work in Urgent Care and the kids come in one after another and I'm the only RN there. I try to show the parents, b...

    Looking for CPN audio cd study tool

    I'm so glad I saw this. I am literally sitting here on eBay trying to avoid buying expensive study guides. I've been looking for weeks now. I mean I'd imagine it's all the same material, but I'm always afraid I'm not going to know something new that ...

    After 5 years, it's time......

    Well, here I am! Been back to Nursing full time since last year when I wrote. Had a little bump in the road in May where I thought I made the wrong decision, but I got through it. Urgent Care was a good choice for me because it's not too intense, but...

    CPN or RN-BC?

    I'm currently studying for the Certified Pediatric Nurse Exam (CPN) and was wondering about the Pediatric Nursing Certification - where you are Board Certified for 5 years. (RN-BC). Does anyone have any knowledge regarding the difference between...

    Certified Peds Nurse Exam-Studying

    I wish someone answered this because I am currently studying and I'm just using my old textbooks and anything I can get my hands on when it's slow at work. I'd like to get some ideas. Sort of like when you kind of know what's going to be on the NLCEX...

    Certified pediatric nurse

    I'm currently studying for it because technically I'm bored and it's just not in the cards to go back to school. I want to study for something. I work in Urgent Care currently, it's not something my job would pay for, I'm just always looking to learn...

    New Grad PICU nurse advice

    I went straight from school into the PICU about 11 years ago and it was scary, but if you have a good preceptor, you will be ok. Go over PALS again, so you know your meds. lab values and vitals (highs and lows). You should only have 2 patients at a t...
