    Hospice

    Let me start off by saying that I'm searching for advice. Hx: I'm in my last semester of school from a 4 year program. I'm taking critical care, nursing management and community health. For my community health clinical I asked for, and got, Hospice...

    Male Nurses/female Patients

    I can appreciate that. Me personally, if I ever saw an MD coming at me with a foley I'd send them away and ask for a nurse. I don't even remember the last time I saw an MD put in a catheter
  5. There are many roads into the nursing profession. I am sure you will find one of them. Grades are not the all important determinant of whether you will make a good nurse or not. Keep plugging away and keep us updated on your progress

    What do you guys during your off-time?

    I spend my time rooting for the red sox, patriots, celtics, or revolution depending on the season. I play golf and spend time with friends. Lately though, after looking at my post-christmas bank account, all I've done is work. And when I'm not at wor...

    Paramedic on Medical Surgical Units outside of just the ER

    Just wondering if anyone else has career related tattoo's

    The Caduceus was actually first seen on Sumerian clay tablets to represent Enki, the God of Creation, The Earth, the Great Abyss (water), crafts, intellect, medicine and magic. His pictograph was two snakes entwined up a staff. In ancient civilizatio...

    Just wondering if anyone else has career related tattoo's

    I just made an appointment for next wed. First tattoo, really excited, lol. It's a play off of the caduceus but instead of snakes i'm having dragons. Here's why: Many people think that the caduceus is that Staff of Hermes, which it is, and unrelated ...

    I am so scared

    Sounds like you're over thinking it. Just relax, take a deep breath and you'll be fine. Doasge calc isn't as bad as you think, the formulas are actually pretty easy once you practice them a couple of times, if you want, PM me and I can give you a cou...
