    pay scales for private hospitals

    I don't know about Melbourne but in Adelaide you paid about 1$ less an hour working in private.

    More Hospitals Banning Elective C-Sections

    I've never had children but have recently married and am starting to think about the idea of having a child. I personally would prefer a c-section because I don't want to have to ensure going through labour, the crapping, the epistotomies and feeling...

    free training to be EN or go to uni and study RN?

    Again you're making bold statements without knowing the facts. No patient's life is being put in danger with the closure of beds, the ANF have set a certain criteria which takes into account patient acuity. If someone has a condition that is life thr...

    free training to be EN or go to uni and study RN?

    To the OP I guess if you ever become a nurse you'll refuse a payrise? After all you wouldn't want to be accused of being GREEDY. On a serious note there is a world of difference between being money hungry and wanting to earn a decent wage and have...

    Where to study?

    I recently completed a hospital run preceptorship course and we were pretty much told by the people running the course that the expectations from UniSA students had to be lower because of how the nursing program is run. I think it's very unfair to th...

    Going green makes me red in the face

    My department is trying to get us to recycle in the OR. I wouldn't have a problem with this but the recycling company the hospital uses has stipulated that plastic and paper have to be separated. I don't have to separate paper from plastic at home wh...

    I am a Scrub Nurse. I badly need your help.

    Give it time. You're lucky that you're in a supportive environment so go with it and if you still don't like it after a few months then reassess. :)

    Where to study?

    Looks like you have to do first year on campus at UNE and then the last two years can be done externally.

    cloth scrub hats in the OR

    They tried banning the cloth hats in my department but it never worked. I get itchy from the disposable hats and I have lots of hair and it keeps falling out. I love theatre but I am not cutting my hair!

    Yes to nursing renewal termination

    I know how upsetting it can be to be thrown in the deep end like that but leaving like that without letting the supervisor know and not giving a formal handover is not the right thing for the patient as well as the nurse you were working with. Yeah i...

    Where to study?

    I went to UniSA but we had more rotations back then, for some reason they decided that students shouldn't get any clinical exposure until 3rd year. I find that they are way behind the Flinders and Adelaide Uni students. To the OP what about the U...

    are there CRNAs in OZ??

    The closest we have in my hospital are nurse sedationists who administer propofol to patients having minor procedures like bone marrow biopsies.

    Surgical Technologists Taking Over Nursing Roles?

    I'm not from the US but we have some similarities in my workplace. The RN's in my hospital scrub for major cases while the EN's (LPN) are mainly circulators.

    What is the difference between LPNs and RNs?

    AlBruin's Mom is that if you show the same level of disrespect towards LPN's in real life as you do here on allnurses you'll get as much help from them as you deserve In Australia we have Enrolled Nurses which are the equivelant of an LPN. There ...
