  1. NC to WY RN?

    Hello. I am an RN in NC. My husband is from Casper/Wright WY area...we are considering a move back to that area.. I'd love to have some input as far as hospitals, size of hospitals, wages for RN with 18 yrs exp. ICU/OB/TRAUMA...would probably want...
  2. Is anyone else uncomfortable with this?

    I agree. I would be uncomfortable as well. We don't use CMT's. I've never worked with them. If I'm responsible for the patient, I will give my own meds. Is this an option for you or is it a requirement that they pass the meds? If there were no ...
  3. any advice on shoes?

    I have to go with the danskos....I have the crocks. I just worried about the splatter factor, but that's just because of the specific unit where i work. I like the danskos because my feet, legs, back haven't hurt a day since I got them. and the "c...
  4. Another duoderm question. . . .

    i don't use tegaderm because when i take it off it just re-aggrivates the wound. i use duoderm. duoderm is used for lightly draining wounds. it's alright to have drainage underneath. duoderm wicks it out. leave it on for the five to seven day wi...
  5. Sleeping during nightshift!!

    yeah, you lose your license for that in NC...I work nights, and the ones that I have seen doing it (techs, US, other unlicensed personell) tend to get away with more...though I saw someone recently get sent home on the spot for nodding in a conferenc...
  6. would you be a RN for $11.00/hr?

    Uh...No. But, I'm not sure what new grads are making these days....but I'd bet it's greater than that! 18 yrs ago it was 12.35 here in eastern NC...though I hear we don't get what you guys up north get...but our cost of living is much less so I thi...
  7. Only been a nurse for 4 months

    I am sorry for what you are feeling. Though it has been many years, I remember having the same feelings. I stuck it out and found that it did get better. I ended up transfering to a different unit after the first year, and found that I had just st...
  8. BSN's vs. Community college

    my personal experience is that the ADN nurse is much more clinically prepared than the BSN nurse. The BSN nurse spends time in classes that really aren't necessary and less time in the clinical areas. I think it's great to further your education, h...
  9. Greenville, ECU, and PCMH

    Hi, again. I am an RN. I live in the Winterville area, which is nice, but there are many other areas which are nice as well--and not as busy. Yes, I am familiar with Physician's East as well as a few of the nursing homes and ALF's. Beverly, which...
  10. Decel Interventions

    sometimes scalp stim will help, too. at least you can see how the baby responds. also, i wonder what the maternal bp is. that's a biggie
  11. They did a c-section without anesthesia

    in an obstetrical emergeny where there the fetal heart rate is low you don't have 20 minutes to wait for anesthesia, you don't have five minutes if you expect a reasonable outcome. i agree...i wouldn't work in an obstetrical unit that doesn't have i...
  12. You Know You're an Old(er) Nurse If . . .

    you were thrilled to make $8 per hour!

  14. Greenville, ECU, and PCMH

    I started at the ECU nursing program and didn't care for it. Didn't really feel it was preparting me to be a nurse. So, I left and went to the local community college where I received an excellent education. I felt more prepared. Then, I returned...
