  1. You can definitely date and have fun during nursing school! I was married with 2 kids and got a 4.0. Hard yes, but it was fine. Don't plan too much. Things will happen they way they should.

    Looking for some advice before making a mistake.

    go to a community college. You won't be in debt more than 10k for a RN.

    TNCC Before Graduation?

    Your employer will most likely pay for you to get what certifications they want you to have and you will do better in the classes once you have experience.

    Will taking TNCC help me transition easier to ER?

    TNCC is more beneficial once you've had some ED experience.

    New Rule: No work bags allowed in ER

    And I'm assuming there is a locker room or break room to keep those things in.

    From Outpatient to ED... career change

    I worked ER for 3 years and would never go back. Some people love it, but it's definitely not for everyone. Be sure before you leave your current job.

    Calling in for no sleep

    I personally wouldn't call in for not sleeping. Were you sick or lacking sleep? If sick, that's different story and you could have asked that question. Maybe you should look at getting off nights.

    What to do? Underwhelmed RN, stuck in a rut!

    even if you're over 40 it's worth it!!

    How to become a lactation consultant??

    I looked into it many years ago. You need to get so many contact hours of direct lactation education to new moms was a huge part of it. To start, you might want to start working in post partum where you can get the hours and they may pay for your education to become a LC.

    Should I continue with nursing?

    Are your medical conditions well controlled? Can you work 8-12 hours at a time?

    Is this a threat?

    2 days is pretty quick to be seen for a W/C. I believe FMLA is 12 weeks. Not sure how long they have to honor restrictions. If you can't fully do the job I'm sure at some point they can let you go.

    New Rule: No work bags allowed in ER

    We aren't allowed personal bags at the nursing station. Any resources you need should be on your intranet. You shouldn't have to provide your own supplies.
