  1. I hate nursing..

    I've only been working at my first job for a month, but so far I hate it. It is EXTREMELY busy. While that in and of itself doesn't bother me, I am concerned that I don't seem to be able to have the time to give good, proper, safe care - the way tha...
  2. I am afraid to admit that I am a registered nurse!

    I feel that way all the time. I just graduated in May '09, and I'm only just now (well, next week) about to start my new job. Like you, I already feel like I've forgotten waaaayy too much info from school. People ask me "medical questions" all the ...
  3. I'm not sure nursing is for me anymore

    As a recent graduate, I will tell you this: I don't think anyone really likes nursing school Even for people who are "meant" to be nurses, it is still a very difficult road. If you're doing okay grade-wise, I'd say to try and tough it out at least...
  4. No more RN jobs in Huntsville area?

    I graduated from school in May 2009, and have also passed NCLEX. I guess new grads seem to be a dime a dozen right now, despite the "nursing shortage". But I am wondering - shamelessly - if anyone knows of any employer who is hiring in the Huntsvil...
  5. Calhoun CC Nursing Program

    I enrolled in the RN program in fall of 2007 along with Jamie2887, and just graduated this past May. I myself had 199 out of 200 points. I don't recall exact figures, but many people I knew in the program told me they had as low as 160-something poin...
  6. I've been working at my hospital as an EKG tech for 4 years now, all during nursing school, and I still can't get a job as an RN there. Granted, I have only just graduated this past May 15, 2009. However, I'm seeing other people from my graduating c...
  7. Actually it's a question from an NCLEX study guide: A client is recieving an eye drop and an eye ointment to the right eye. The nurse should: A. Administer the eye drop first, followed by the eye ointment. B. Administer the eye ointment first, fol...
  8. Prison rape

    Thanks, JDCitizen. Btw, what do you mean by "SOP"?
  9. Prison rape

    I have read that in the US, the rate of male-on-male rape in prison (ie, not the number of instances, but the rate of occurence) is high enough to rival the rate that occurs in "normal" life outside of prison. Just wondering if there are any RNs out...
  10. This is kind of a lengthy question, but I'll try to make it as brief as possible: I am about to graduate as an RN. I live in the Huntsville, AL area. Jobs for nurses are here, but they don't seem to be as readily available as they have been in the p...
  11. Strange experience yesterday, feedback please...

    Based on everything you described, I think you did an EXCELLENT job. I imagine that I probably would have done precisely the same things that you did. I'm not sure I see what, if anything, you actually did wrong. From the way you describe, you were ...
  12. Charge Nurse vs. Nursing Supervisor

    Okay. I guess I was thinking that your description of "Nursing Supervisor" is more of a description of a "Nursing Manager". Is there a difference between those two, or are they one and the same? Sorry, just wanting to be clear.
  13. Rejection a 2nd time!!

    I have talked to people who have gone through several nursing schools before they were able to complete their degree. Usually these are people who had to drop out and/or flunked out for various reasons. If your friend's acceptance into nursing schoo...
  14. Charge Nurse vs. Nursing Supervisor

    Just wondering what the difference between these two terms is. I see both used a lot in textbooks and in conversations, but I'm not sure I understand the difference. They've never been explained in class, and I feel that I ought to know the differenc...
  15. Huntsville Info Please

    Not trying to insult anyone - I'm just giving an honest opinion, which is what the OP was asking for. I live out here in Meridianville - have for most of my life - and I've been spit on/pushed/threatened by so many good ol Bubba types...I guess the ...
