    Weekend nursing packages?

    This is super late, but I work at a Sanford in Oncology - we are hiring and I know that there are some nurses that do straight weekends. I am sure most of the floors do have the option for straight weekends - hope you find something! :)
  3. Our standing orders when a patient is admitted to either Acute Hospice, Inpatient Hospice (Respite), or End of Life Cares are: Atropine 1% 1-2 gtts every 1 hour prn. We try to get a scopolamine patch on these patients as soon as they start getting more secretions...then we move to the Atropine. However, with our End of Life patients, we don't always have the time to let the scopolamine work, so we end up using Atropine gtts and repositioning techniques to make the dying process more comfortable and peaceful for the patient.

    I would 100% recommend Med/Surg...A little background about myself: I got hired to Labor and Delivery...during my interview I asked what other positions they had open...they offered me three other positions - Medical-Oncology being one of them. I went home thought it over..I thought if I started in L&D I would never be able to keep my "nursing skills." I started on a Medical-Oncology floor 9 months ago...I can honestly say I have learned more in the past 9 months than I learned during my four years of nursing school. I love my job!! :)

    NCLEX is stressing me out

    Believe it or not, your test sounds very similar to what mine was on Monday - the only change is that I had more like 7-9 SATA. I left the testing center, and I went home to start studying again...I was so scared. My board of nursing had my results up within 24 hours, and suprisingly I passed!!!! Just relax, this is a normal feeling, and I am sure you did just fine...you prepared yourself well...the wait is horrible I know, but treat yourself to a movie, dinner, shopping whatever to keep your mind off of the test!!! :) :) :)

    Took the NCLEX on Saturday

    I couldn't imagine that you would lose the position. I am in SD and the facility that I am going to be starting at told me that if nurses don't pass boards the first time, they have a class they offer through the facility that they could take to help them study for boards the second time around. Like I said, I don't think you would lose the position, but I guess I can't speak for Mayo! Best of luck to you! :)

    Good Luck - try to relax today as much as you can! [easier said than done, I know] :)

    Nclex today, freaking out. Only had 75Q.

    I am with you also...I just got back from taking the NCLEX-RN...I had 75 questions, it took me about 1.5 hours to take it. I had two math questions, tons of medications (that I didn't know), probably 7 SATA, and lots of priority. I could always get it down between 2 and then I had to just try to think it out...I don't think my exam went to well in all honesty - I just don't have a good feeling. I wish the best of luck to all of you!!! :)

    taking NCLEX-RN on July 18,08..HELP!!

    I think you are feeling the same as I am...I take my boards tomorrow, and I feel like there is still so much to learn. However, I know that I have to at least try the NCLEX and if I don't pass, well then so be it, at least I tried... I will kick myself if I don't try it. You have graduated nursing school, so you can do it! :) HTH
