    Shiprock NM

    A. Keams, I just came across your post and see it is from a year ago. Are you now working in Shiprock? I worked at Fort Defiance a few years ago. I loved it. I've applied for a position at Shiprcock recently.

    Going to work with a broken heart...

    I had a rough heart breaking week last week. I showed up to work and the first person I saw was my sweet co-worker. I burst into tears. After that I was o.k. and able to work my shift. Sometimes you have to let it out. Hugs to you.:hug:

    Fired from my med/surg job after almost 3 years

    This seems to be happening a lot lately...and to awesome nurses. It's scary. I'm so sorry this is happening to you.

    Finally ready to talk about my CPNE experience 3/25/2011

    Congratulations!! I had nightmares for a few weeks after I passed the CPNE. Thinking back now I don't know how I was able to drive home. I live in south MS and took the CPNE in Madison Wisconsin. This was October 2008! Can't believe it's been that long! You did it...you passed it!

    Funeral Home Workers

    This has always been my experience. With or without family being at the bedside. The funeral home staff has always been very respectful and dignified.

    What was your first nursing job?

    My first job as a LPN was working on a 15 bed ortho/surg floor. My first job as a RN was working on a 20 bed med/surg/peds floor in a Navajo facility. I loved both jobs. Now I work LTC and Hospice for the V.A.

    Excelsior College MSN Degree Graduates

    Not only is it NLN accredited it is a NLN center of excellence http://www.nln.org/excellence/coe/index.htm. I always print this out when questioned http://nlnac.org/Forms/directorySearch.asp. I received my ADN from EC and I'm considering EC for my MSN. Hope this helps :)

    Help! Need to make a decision quickly

    Tough decision. I would be a little put off that the first facility told you they would call within a week and didn't. It was over two weeks before you heard anything. Granted, I know things happen but that is just inconsiderate. That would put me off big time but i'm wacky that way. As mentioned earlier...follow your intuition.

    What grosses YOU out?

    I can't believe the foods that our facility purees. ugggggg I can barely stomach it when I'm feeding my resident.
  12. exnavygirl-RN

    What grosses YOU out?

    I can handle almost everything. Walking into a patient's room and seeing water cups full of grey/green phlegm and spit sends me over the edge. :barf01:

  14. exnavygirl-RN

    What if a hurricane hit your facility while you were there?

    I live on the MS Gulf Coast...so I've been there and done that. We have protocols we follow but we've always managed well.
