    Help... Nursing Nurses 2

    Well my question is because I am a new grad is how do I, as low man on the totem pole, say I need to breastfeed while going through orientation and then shift duties. I don't know how the floor is...face paced or not... though I think it will be and while on orientation: classroom time for the first week and then 8hr shifts 5days a week for a few months (I think)then night 3days a week 12hr shifts. I won't know anyone there to simply ask hey could you cover my pts (1:7 ratio telemetry) and I don't know if they are a BF friendly facility or not though they seem like they would be... I just don't want to start off this job seeming needy and demanding. I am always willing to help others, my fellow RN's and go that extra mile but as a new grad this may seem just that... needy and demanding

    Help... Nursing Nurses 2

    I am a new graduate going to start my first RN job on the 25th. I am also a breastfeeding mother of a 6.5 month old boy. How in the world am I suppose to broach the subject of breastfeeding while doing my orientation and then my shift duties? Do I do it with hr first and then the unit manger? Do I just take it upon myself and go do it in the bathroom? I didn't say anything at the interview because I wanted the job of course (NEEDED the job) and we all know how hard it is for new grads so I really have no clue what to do or how to approach the topic. Please any suggestions would be greatly appreciated because I am really worried... I a very committed to breastfeeding and I don't think its fair as nurses encouraging moms to do whats right for them in regards to breast milk or formula that I have to give up my choice to breastfeed even as a new grad.... on the other hand I need this job Please help, advice... anything:crying2:

    It will happen when it happens

    I am a new grad nurse graduated May 09 and just scored my first JOB!!!!!!!!!!!! It took about 6months and I have to say it was right on time thank GOD. I finished school being 8months pregnant studied for nclex with my newborn who is 6 months today and now I am beginning my climb up the mountain top. I just want to say to all the new grads hang in there IT WILL HAPPEN FOR YOU TOO. I was at the bottom monetarily like negative in the checking accounts and now things are looking up. I start on the 25th and really its all about who you know and networking. So guys keep looking and praying and believing in God because YOU WILL GET THAT FIRST JOB and when you do remember this time that you were unemployed and broke, sick of people saying it will get better because you need it to get better NOW because when you get that first job thats where the real learning begins and we are gonna need it to get us through our first year soo.... probably words that you don't want to hear but never the less I am saying them: THINGS WILL GET BETTER ... simply because they have to... right?

    Help can anyone give me info on Four Winds Hospital in NY?

    i definitely agree with the previous poster. If I were to do psych I would definitely want to do it there . Its not a hospital setting like one would expect it kind of re4minds me of camp. At this point I am interested in anyone who would give me a job :zzzzz:banghead: because I am a new grad to answer the question am I interested in psych. But I did apply there and I have to say I think it would be a good experience

    Help can anyone give me info on Four Winds Hospital in NY?

    Hey I did clinicals there when I was in nursing school and I thought it was great. Not to mention the food wasn't bad either. It does get pretty hairy there but while I was there everyone seemed to work together as a team. I thought it was a great experience.

    HELP!!!! All the nursing nurses...

    I am a ny nurse and I am aware that ICU nursing is tough and sometimes nurses don't get breaks and as a new graduate in a really tough job market right now I just really wanted some examples of how other nurses have BF and worked 12hr shifts like their schedule from morning to night of how they started their day. Ex. 5am wake up 5:30 BF 6:00 drop off child etc My son will be 6 months in 2 weeks and I am about to start solids about now ( he is 5.5 months now) I am trying to be realistic about the floor in regards to breaks anf BF and as a new grad who needs this job I feel I kind of do have to take what is offered. I won't know anyone on the floor so one again its not ike I can walk in there and make demands or ask for help with a sort of personal issue. I will not mention my BF issue at the interview because I do need this job and who would u hire a new grad who they need to make BF accomodations for or not?

    HELP!!!! All the nursing nurses...

    Hey all I am a new grad nurse and I am wondering when I finnally:stone get a job how in the world am I going to continue to breastfeed. How does breastfeeding work with 12hr schedules? Have any of you nurses done it? Not to mention it will be my first nursing job and its not like I can walk on the floor and ask someone else to cover my patients. I have an interview for the ICU and I just want to make this work. I am really concerned and not working isn't an option anymore. My son will be 6 months old and I am desperately trying to get in at least 1 full year of breast feeding. I think of all the nurses and myself encouraging breastfeeding among new mothers and when it comes to myself I can't because I proabably won't get a break. When will holistic care apply to nurses too? What do I do? Maybe I am worrying for nothing but I don't feel like I am. PLEASE any suggestions for any nursing nurse mothers. HELP!!!!!
