  3. How prevalent is e-MAR out there? Are you

    we use scanners/emars. time consuming but we HAVE to do it. very difficult in an emergency situation because you spend ALOT of time going back in later, but works out alright for non bad situations. Can say I don't like it that much, but after you d...
  4. not testing for influenza

  5. New Nurse Manager

    I think it would be a good idea to work as a nurse on that unit for at least 2 weeks so you had a realistic view of the goods and the bads to help you in your position. I have had several "new" managers who worked in completely different units then ...

  7. RN-BSN completion??

  9. What qualities to look for in a mentor?

    HI I never went to anyone and asked them if they would be "My Mentor", it just happened. I have several nurses who just naturally fell into that role because of their knowledge, willingness to pass it on and because they seemed to care about me too!...

  11. ADN/BSN Debate on the Floors?

    Hi, just stop worrying about the whole debate. When you graduate, you will have your own ideas and theories regarding the subject. This is an ongoing ongoing ongoing theme. I personally recommend getting as much collegiate education that you can ...
  12. We had (recently moved on) ortho surgeon who was a stereotypical MD... he is quite the charactor (not necessarily in the nicest sense) and all the nurses dressed up like him for halloween... they all wore a huge handlebar mustache, combed their hai...
  13. activities of daily living problem

    I don't think you should write this off yet either! It is true that you will have to do ADL's through nursing school and Cna training... All of us who work with direct patient care do it daily and I will be the first to fess up that it is not the mo...
