  1. Rejected from dream job

    I've interviewed for what I thought was my dream job and did not get it. I've also interviewed for positions, got rejected, then got an offer after the first choice didn't work out. I have shadowed at a place I thought I would love, and ended the in...
  2. Patient complaint-freaking out!

    I have had a patient complaint this year actually. My manager (who I am lucky to have) reads the complaint, checks our notes, then calls us in for our side of the story. She then speaks to the patient. The complaint against me came back as unfounded....
  3. Kaiser Should Be Ashamed Of Itself!

    I made the mistake of working for a for profit hospice agency. We were told to chart decline only and did not offer therapy services. One nurse reported a family to Adult Protective Services and our manager was livid. She called a mandatory meeting s...
  4. Nurses struggling with mental illness

    I will admit that I have Bipolar type I disorder. I could care less about the stigma because 1. I am a darn good nurse & 2. It was such a relief to finally have my illness diagnosed. I am an advocate for mental health recognization & treatmen...
  5. Really disappointed with the reality of nursing.

    OP: Im so sorry to laugh. Its just that you took the words out of my mouth. Your issues are one of the reasons why I made the decision that if I ever, & I mean ever go back as a staff nurse in a hospital it would be for night shift. It can still ...
  6. Anyone attending Mount Carmel Second Degree Program?

    I graduated in the 4 year regular program & that was intense in itself. You must stay focused & take advantage of the learning opportunities. One thing about Mt. Carmel is that you are not a # & the teachers really take pride in what they...
  7. Inappropriate Manager

    I had a manager that was very ill fitted for the position they had. While I have only been a nurse for 2 years my other employment experience has taught me to always stand up for whats right but there is a point where you sit back & watch managem...
  8. OR nurse as a new grad

    Hello, I was in the same situation as you, wanting to be an OR nurse after graduation. I shadowed in th OR & PACU numerous times, but the hospitals I applied to only wanted experienced nurses. Now, 2 years later with med/surg experience I have an...
  9. first incident report

    I agree w/ the previous post. I'm a new grad too, graduated in July, and we was told never to mention incident report in the patient's chart. Since the doc wrote that order, it will be a part of the patient's medical record. After seeing that order I...
  10. Columbus New Grad - need help finding job :(

    I graduated back in July and had been applying for jobs since OSU had the RN internships posted in Nov 07 and never got a call back. The sad thing is that I worked for a hospital there while in school. One hospital gave a new grad a nurse educator po...
  11. Subjective ACLS

    Get this- I wanted to take the ACLS course that my job was offering but was told by the education department that I would have to get permission from my nurse manager because I work in an area that does not require ACLS skills (oncology/ med surg). N...
  12. Virginia/virginia Beach nursing salaries

    They told me something totally different, they emphasized how the $$ wll be on my first check. I do remember them saying that the offer they were giving me was for BSN grads relocating from another state. Oh well, I didn't accept a job with them anyw...
  13. ohio state anyone??

    I heard the same thing! I stopped trying for OSU when I received my bachelors from there and wanted to return for nursing and was declined. I'll receive my BSN from Mount Carmel this July. I love the school! I mean, every place has their issues but I...
  14. Virginia/virginia Beach nursing salaries

    I'm relocating from Ohio and accepted a position at Riverside Regional Methodist Hospital for $20.28/hr 7a-7p on the oncology unit. This will be my first job as an RN. Sentara offered me a job @ $19.60/hr but I didn't take it. Chesapeake General said...
  15. Some parents amaze me

    I totally agree. I grew up in a household where my father shot anything up his veins that he thought would make him high and my mother was soooo in love that she basically ignored it and look at me, about to graduate with my BSN in July and my little...
