  1. AACN ACNP-AG Boards

    Although it has been quite a few years since I took the exam, I would highly recommend the Barkley course materials. At the time I took the exam, they did not have the online streaming videos so I ordered the CDs and listened closely, as well as goin...
  2. Thanks to all who have contributed to this thread. I think it is great that there are nurses who feel comfortable doing med-surg, LTC, and many of the "non-traditional" specialties that nurses seem to eschew in favor of the "glamour" of ER or ICU. Be...
  3. Policy

    Lukewarm I know it's been quite some time since anyone replied to this thread but if you want another idea for learning policy, consider joining a local chapter of a nurse's association in your area (either ANA or a specialty group). Also, proba...
  4. Treatment for torn meniscus

    That's what I figured. So he basically used no common sense, which is what I thought to begin with. Thanks for the confirmation! ?
  5. Treatment for torn meniscus

    Good afternoon everyone ? I have a question for the ortho nurses here in this forum. What is the typical treatment (pre-surgery) for a torn meniscus? Someone I know told me that his doctor told him he could resume his "normal activities" (which incl...
  6. Insulting pay raise

    In reference to the last sentence...yes, in their eyes we aren't "valuable" but if they didn't have us at all, they'd be up s*** creek!! ?
  7. Marketing Question

    I currently work for a hospice/palliative care company and we do have marketers but to date (and I've only been there about 2.5 months) I have NEVER seen our marketers "fish" for patients as far as looking in their charts. They go to different facili...
  8. What is the best way to look for jobs?

    First, congrats to you, WinterWolf90, for completing your NP program!! As MikeFNPC advised, find out if your new city (Lubbock) has an NP group there (may be part of a statewide group). Additionally, AANP (the national NP organization) has job listin...
  9. I'm a CNA, will I lose my license?

    OP--I am sorry to hear you were sick at work. I don't think you handled things well but when you are sick, you are not always thinking clearly. I agree with Kooky Korky...I don't think you should get fired for this incident but you definitely need to...
  10. Schedule as hospice

    I agree with JBMmom--talk with your local hospice agency and find out what positions are available. My guess is they would be thrilled to have someone who WANTS to work off-shift hours!! Good luck and let us know how things work out for you!!
  11. Nurse Gives Lethal Dose of Vecuronium Instead of Versed

    (Reply to comment #9) Me too. A sad situation for everyone involved
  12. Should New Grad Start in Hospice?

    I think everyone is different and if you truly have a passion for hospice care, you have nothing to lose by applying and if the hospice agency is interested, maybe they will bring you in for an interview. If you are lucky enough to get an interview, ...
  13. New Hospice nurse, all tips welcome!

    For those of you who are case managers for home hospice--if your company uses Relias for your online training, there is a module on case management that probably would be helpful.

    A resource to consider is the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association Home. Good luck and welcome to the hospice world! Laurie
