    Blood transfusions-how fast do you go?

    It depends on the situation. I have run it in on a trauma patient at 250/hr-- but that is not common Sometinmes we will go 4/hr sometimes 2/hr---just depends on the patient and the dituation.

    telephonic nursing in metro Atlanta

    Hi Georgia Nurses!! I can't wait to get back to Georgia!. I miss it so much!! My question is this: Are there any good companies that hire RNs with less than a year experience in telephonic nursing? I have been working with United Health here in Ohio, and LOVE IT!! However, we will be moving back to the Metro Atlanta area in the next few months, and I would love to continue telephone nursing. I have heard of several companies that will help you set up an office in your home to do this. Any there? Thanks!!

    Anyone ever work for Optum???..

    I start next week with Optum Nurse call Line. I have been an RN for nearing 2 years, but was an LPN for 20 years prior. I do have 6 years med-surg and rehab nursing-- which was a big plus for them. I went on the interview, did a few tests, had a background check and drug screen and was offered the position almost immediately. Benefits are fantastic, and my hours are set, days on and off will never change-- except for holidays.

    Hi Georgia nurses! First, I want to say I am SOOOO glad to be moving back to Georgia come this June!!!! :dance: What is available to RN's who do not want to travel into Atlanta??? I will be living in Woodstock/Acworth maybe Kennesaw/Marietta area. I worked at Children's Scottish Rite before (lived in Acworth), but do not want to go that far. Thanks in advance!!

    what so you think?

    I work with nurses young enough to be my daughter, and also some old enough to be my mother. Age makes no difference--- as long as that nurse is competent.

    Brown Mackie vs Great Oaks LPN program

    Hello, I work at a hospital which has Greak Oaks students do the clinicals there. The instructors are extremely knowledgable, and the students are not passed on unless they are absolutely ready to be. For Great Oaks, pass rates as follows: 2002: 84.16% 2003: 82.11% 2004: 90.07% For Brown Macke pass rates: there are no stats available There is another good program in Hillsboro, Ohio at Southern State Community College. The pass rates are: 2002: 100% 2003: 87.80% 2004: 95.00% To find pass statistics on these and other schools, go to: http://www.nursing.ohio.gov/PDFS/2002-2004-PN.pdf
