  1. To aspirate or not to aspirate?!

    If anyone is interested, I've been doing some digging into this topic for the last few days and finally found a good article on the topic: http://www.nursingtimes.net/nursing-practice-clinical-research/are-techniques-used-for-intramuscular-injection-...
  2. My first year was spent looking for work

    This sort of treatment of new nurses was a major factor that pushed me into the military after graduation. And you *really* got to want it to get into the military as a nurse these days. They are flooded with applications. Sorry to hear your hospita...
  3. To aspirate or not to aspirate?!

    sorry to resurrect a dead thread here, but this seems to be the most current one on the subject. i'm just wondering if anyone has come across any research on the topic that doesn't relate to pediatrics and vaccine administration. i know the british j...
  4. FOR COT CLASS 10-03 - last minute unsolicited advice

    First of all THANK YOU Carolinapooh! Love the advice and its got me pumped and looking forward to COT on Aug 23. Got my orders in the mail yesterday and this finally became real to me after more than a year waiting. Didn't sleep much last night from ...
  5. US Air Force COT 10-06

    I was just talking about the running times. I know many women that can outrun me - any time, any place. Just wished the time to shoot for was the same since the running portion is what is killing my score at the moment. I'd be passing by a good m...
  6. US Air Force COT 10-06

    Thanks for the info, I just thought we might have to qualify with pistols since the nurse I interviewed with specificly asked if I had any moral objections to using a firearm since I would be required to do so if I was sent to the middle east. Guess ...
  7. US Air Force COT 10-06

    Hello everyone, I'm set for COT on August 23. Good to see there is a facebook group for us, I will make sure to join it. Just a question for anyone here who has done this already or knows someone who has, Is the 5k run timed? If so what is the time l...
  8. USAF COT 10-04

    i too will be going to arizona for ntp right after cot at maxwell. i get the joy of doing it during the heat of summer however. just a pointer for anyone looking to join or considering starting the paperwork - start the year before you graduate! i st...
  9. air force nursing questions

    As i was signing papers with my recruiter he told me that I would need a minimum 6 months of continuous full time work experience as an RN to even get an increase in base pay and be able to skip some of the more intensive training and go stright to t...
  10. Well I got my Live Attenuated virus a week ago and no ill effects so far. Not even so much as a runny nose. Personally, I liked it better. When I got my seasonal flu shot my arm hurt as if someone had been punching me for nearly a week. I'm also more...
  11. http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vac-gen/6mishome.htm#risk http://www.who.int/features/factfiles/immunization/facts/en/index.html i think those are two reputable sources on the subject of vaccination in general. and that is all the more i will say on tha...
  12. Simple IV/tubing questions

    Thanks! This makes a lot more sense to me than the kink/flush/push/flush/unkink way. I really wish I had a set of IV tubing around that I could push colored dye into. I wonder how much diffusion actually moves the meds up or down the line once a lit...
  13. Well I finally got my H1N1 LAIV today. So I will let you all know if any ill comes of it. Originially it was only for the tier 1 employees but so few got it they finally told us we could get it ourselves last week. I'd been pretty much on my own so ...
  14. i know that we deal with people and not just facts and figures. this is mainly why i was driven to even post (which won't be happening again soon) any seasonal flu clinic i go to i get hundreds of questions from anxious parents asking when we will gi...
  15. Haha, you'd think that would make it better for those healthcare workers who are afraid of needles! If I could pick between the two, all things being equal, I would probably choose the h1n1 shot too. It so much manlier to bear the arm and take it. B...
