  1. My fall from CVICU

    Need straight and to the point advice from experienced CVICU nurses/managers. I am a fairly new RN, worked very hard to get into CV. Got the perfect job at an amazing hospital. Great team and resources were amazing, everything seemed like it was goin...
  2. Ventilation in CVICU

    Hello to all. I have a few questions regarding the ventilator assisted patient in CVICU. Took a crash course respiratory class but having trouble pulling some of it together. Can someone in the simplest terms desrcibe the difference between A/C an...
  3. I think I'm too slow for Critical Care...

    I know exactly how you feel. I am still on orientation in the CVICU and I feel the same way everyday. I have about a month left and then no training wheels! I feel like I get MOST of the pieces of the puzzle at this point, but my problem is putting...

    Thanks to all for replies! I know it is going to take some time before I remember to breathe and take care of pts. at the same time....lol. I will look into these sites and books too, I am sure they will help.
  5. Most Common CV-ICU Surgical Procedures

    I am a new hire on a CV-ICU unit. Almost two weeks into the orientation and my head is just spinning. Coming from long LTC so this is a entirely different world to me. I have been told some pretty common drugs and I have seen many of the lines but...
  6. Pregnant and interviewing...When do you tell???

    When is the right time to tell your ICU unit manager that you are expecting when you are a new hire? I feel really good about my last interview for a ICU position. And it really is the position of my dreams! However, I feel like my pregnancy may be f...
  7. ICU Interviews do's and oh no she did not's!!

    I might be taking it a little personally. But I have run into this in other places than posts. Sorry if it seems like I am overreacting....lol. I just feel like if there was no stigma attached you should be able to be open and honest about it, in ...
  8. ICU Interviews do's and oh no she did not's!!

    And I guess that is what I am saying. This is exactly what I plan to do! Becoming a CRNA is a very long term goal of mine. My entire journey to this point has been a case of learning to run before I walk. I am a long way from my goal which may be unc...

  10. ICU Interviews do's and oh no she did not's!!

    Thanks to everyone for their responses. They were all very helpful. I have completed one of the two interviews. I feel like my nerves got the best of me. I rambled at times and feel like I strayed from the original questions. Hope the next one goes a...

  12. I finally got a RN job!

    Congrats!!! I am in a similar boat. LPN with almost 2 years of experience. Recently passed boards and now am looking for my dream position. Would really like to work in the ICU and have applied for positions on a CCU and PACU but know that candidates...
  13. New RN, just passed boards, needing job search advice

    Well first of all congrats on passing!!! I think that your friend gave you some good advice. Applying to a specific job may make it seem like you are a little more focused but it is understandable that you want to appear flexible too! It may be th...
  14. just failed for the 5th time...need help getting back on track

    Just remember that you got through school. I think that sometimes the pressure of passing can become our worst enemy. You have made it this far, just one more step to go. Study for sure but remember that most of what we need to pass NCLEX is what was...
  15. Help =/lpn to rn or straight to rn?

    Don't know what would work best for you but I think testing out for LPN after my first year of RN clinicals was the smartest thing I ever did. Went to school to get my associates degree in nursing for RN (and plan to start on my BSN online next fall)...
