    Shaky hands

    This might be a silly question but I'm concerned about it. I naturally have shaky hands--all my life really. It's not that I'm nervous but just a natural thing for me. Would this really be a set back in a nursing career? What patient would want to see a nurse start an IV line with their hands trembling??? This really bothers me! Thanks for any input.
  2. Thank you...from a 2006 Diploma program grad xx

    Thinking of moving to Providence,.........

    Hi. I live in RI. There are a couple of hospital networks you can check out. Lifespan incorporates RI Hospital, Miriam, Hasbro Childrens, Newport Hospital and Bradley. www.Lifespan.org Then there's Care New England which includes Kent, Women's and Infants and Butler http://www.carenewengland.org/default.cfm There are other hospitals including South County, Our Lady of Fatima, the VA in Providence, Roger Williams Hospital Providence is lovely but like other metropolitan cities, it has some not-so-good areas. There are lots of smaller towns to choose from as well. Feel free to PM me if you'd like more info.

    My most critical patient

    I think you did a great job in identifying a sick patient!
  13. You should familiarize yourself with topics related to immigration https://allnurses.com/international-nursing/must-read-international-272170.html
  14. There is nothing at all you can do to "beat" retrogression. It's not going to happen

    I passed the NCLEX

    The dirty work?

    Yes, you'll be involved in all that type of stuff...even blood. You'll be seeing people at their most vulnerable on a daily basis. Good luck in what you decide

    Perhaps it's not really that the 'nurses aren't always the friendliest'. We're just extremely busy with patient loads that are ridiculous and thinking of different things, being pulled one way or another. Yes, we've all been there and I'm a fairly new grad under 3 years but wait until you see what it's like when you get on the floor and experience what RN's are going through. Cheers

    Death of a pt

    I've sat several tlimes with patients who were actively dying and no one was with them. The other nurses on the floor knew this and pitched in to do my meds on my other patients. After death, providing post mortum care is done with total dignity. Really nothing to be afraid of.

    Nursing Care Plan for Medical Diagnosis of Syncope

    Are you kidding me? You asked for help and you received it. Daytonite puts a lot of work into helping out students with care plans such as yourself. I am also appalled!!! Unbelievable!!!:angryfire
