  1. Seeking Advice - NP program

    Food for thought, but if your desired program is for an NP qualified for all-ages, you may not have enough pediatric experience to get in (assuming you work adult med/surg). When I was interested in applying, they were turning away experienced adult ...
  2. Any MPH students out there?

    Hi Crisbiss, I haven't been back on this forum for a while, but I decided on MPH because I really like how diverse everyone's background is. We have lots of physicians, allied health, epidemiologists, environmental health, nutritionists, etc etc in t...
  3. Looking for work in Alberta? Don't give up...

    I would just like to add that AHS is not the only game in town! I work for a major university, get way better benefits, and an excellent schedule with summer holidays and a week at Christmas. What's more is that I am not one of 60+ nurses doing my sa...
  4. Any MPH students out there?

    I'm starting in Fall 2014 at University of Alberta. Is there anyone else out there, Canadian or otherwise?
  5. Removing a ring with O2 mask strap

    Saw this going around FB and it's quite clever! [video=youtube_share;DxoAbK5Pc6w]
  6. questions about permission to conduct research

    Your local Ethics board should be able to point out how to obtain operational approval.
  7. PLEASE HELP!! MRU, UofC, UofA or GMU??

    I can vouch for GMU being an excellent program that prepared me well. Sometimes the disorganization drove me nuts, but I'm pretty sure you get that everywhere.
  8. Butterfly Injections

    I had a homecare infusion client whose RN wife wanted to give his infusions via butterfly as she was not comfortable with IV catheters. His infusions only lasted for 15-30 minutes. All the research I turned up indicate that butterfly infusions are sa...
  9. Nurse Practitioner specializing in Trauma/Emergency?

    In my ED, there are a few NPs, but their role is to manage chronic disease patients. So there is one who sets up follow-up care for heart disease patients, and another who prescribes IV antibiotics for the IV clinic and decides when they are safe to ...
  10. Iv mag or k+ which do I hang first?

    According to Lexicomp, these are compatible, and there are no warnings against infusing concomitantly - is there any reason you couldn't run them together?
  11. Alberta Cuts Nursing Jobs and to "Restructure Health Care"

    Already have my grad school application in for 2014, and it's not in nursing..
  12. Where to start?

    I would recommend that you work in the specialty where you eventually want to work in research. I'm an emergency RN and I have been working in Emergency Medicine research since January; my experience on the floor has been invaluable. In addition, you...
  13. Need advice! Private clinic nursing..

    I work for a university and a private homecare company. I don't regret leaving AHS for a second. The benefits are way better outside of the union negs, too. I kept my casual position to maintain my seniority, but it's really nice not feeling too worr...
  14. AHS Media Campaign

    I heard the radio ad. They are very disparaging... the whole campaign is baffling! Unless it's to try and justify bringing on more NAs and HCAs in lieu of nurses...?
  15. Research career & per diem bedside job?

    I do this. I came from ED nursing and now work in Emergency research. I kept my old position on the floor and still pick up shifts every few weeks. It keeps me current, plus it's fun to be a bedside nurse when it's not my full time occupation anymore...
