  1. Transcript for ENB courses?

    I trained at a hospital shool of nursing starting in the early 1900s pre project 2000. I did get my transcripts from the university that has replaced my old system of training but it did take about a year and several attempts before getting a proper...
  2. Non-Medical Prescribing

    Thanks all for the replies. I have heard from other NMPs how scary it is when you first start to prescribe. I'm looking forward to getting started and hope I can just start with the drugs included in the formulary created for my course. I picked d...
  3. Non-Medical Prescribing

    I have recently completed my NMP, got my official results about 2 -3 weeks ago now. I was just wondering about a number of things: How long does it take for NMC to record this How did those who are NMPs start prescribing eg, limited formulary at fir...
  4. Blood transfusions??? just say no...

    why are people failing to read what has been written by jws in this thread but continue to rant about jws abandoning their patients and abdicating care?? it has been said that the objection is to actually spiking the bag and connecting the blood to ...
  5. Slowing down LEGAL immigration process in the US

    I can understand people getting angry if local junior nurse jobs were being given to overseas nurses while local nurses were being over-looked. I'd be surprised if this was the case. As a UK nurse who was seeking immigration to the US the job I app...
  6. post op and renal failure

    The biggest causes of acute kidney injury (AKI) in the surgical setting are hypovolaemia and sepsis. Some surgical procedures are higher risk - there is about a 20 - 30% incidence of AKI following cardio-pulmonary by-pass surgery. Patients with and...
  7. Blood transfusions??? just say no...

    Macgirl - I have been nursing for over 20 yrs and am a JW. The first thing you need to establish is if you are willing to administer blood to another person despite your stance on receiving blood products yourself. For some JW's after examining the...
  8. Jehovah's Witness nurses in the critical care unit?

    I just wanted to clarify the issue of blood transfusions and JWs. The decision whether to administer blood or not is a personal one, not one that is laid down by the organisation, so some JW's will and some won't. There are examples in the bible we...
  9. Nurse practitioner

  10. Nurse practitioner

    There are advanced practice nurses in the Uk but they are not regulated / registered like they are in the US. The NMC is supposed to be working on this but it is a long time coming. In the meantime have a look at the following link from the Royal C...
  11. cathlock heparin

    Weekly only if it's not in use. We have a few patients who hold between plasma exchanges and weekly has been adaquate.
  12. Acute Dialysis Medications to Know

    I think the main ones are antihypertensives, ACEi, ARB, BB, CCB etc, also any diuretics the patient may still be taking.
  13. breach of contract

    I'd be interested in the outcome of this. I signed a contract in 2007 and so have been caught in the retrogression trap also. Another nurse I know signed with the same agency around the same time as me. He mentioned his wife was keen to relocate i...
  14. Liverpool Women's Hospital

    Getting info can be a problem and I would suggest that you come to an arrangement with just one person and speak to them only. Ideally the ward doctor or the ward manager / sister, that way they know what has been said before. In the past I have ag...
  15. If I do Midwifery course?

    Good - I would if I was in your position, get as many skills and as much experience under your belt as you can. I'm having a second wind as a student and am disappointed it's coming to an end, it is over far too soon for my liking.
