  1. Hi everyone, I have received my BSN and in 2008 and loved the BSN program. I have applied to the same university (very well known) for my NP degree. Unlike my BSN, the program is almost completely online (except clinicals) and I am worried because...
  2. how do you keep your sexy??

    I definitely know how to keep my sexy :-) First, hair: I have long straight brown hair and I do usually pull it back but I use really nice headbands like "Hermes, France," "Burberry" etc. I do use make up but just make it very natural, a bit of th...
  3. how to deal with a potential backstabber

    I would talk to your clinical instructor and ask her how to handle those cases: like giving medications with the preceptor etc... I had a great RN student today, she was so eager to learn, asking me to let her put Piggy back and draw blood... And I d...
  4. LilyBlue, you are hilarious! I was all smiles when reading your post! I will definitely try the percentages and movie scripts next time! I love 8hrs shifts: I love going to lunch and thinking yeay, I am half way done... 12 hrs shifts are harder, w...
  5. thinking of leaving floor and going to HomeHealth

    I feel your pain. I had the other day a pt with a PICC and when her .9NS bag was done, I flushed her PICC, clamped it and went to get another bag and put it up right away... Guess what, no .9NS, no flushes, nothing... By the time I went to another u...
  6. nurse manager was rude to me

    I always pick up the phone when NM is around unless I am busy :-) When she is not around, not so much :-)
  7. Is This A Good time to Start Nursing School

    Well, it all depends on how much your tuitions are, how much you make at your job, how good the job outlook and the salary for RNs are in your area. I did my BSN part time while working part time. It took me 3 years though. If you can do it as an ...
  8. Hi! I graduated with my BSN in May. At the times I felt like I was not getting enough clinical experience and was anxious to start my new job. Now though I realized that I have gotten a lot of knowledge in the BSN program and I developed a lot of ...
  9. If you are a bad CNA, does that make you a bad Nurse?

    I just posted a topic "A problem with CNAs" At my unit many CNAs say they are currently taking prerequisites to transfer into RN program. I just know by heart who has a potential to become a good RN and who better just get real and look at their jo...
  10. A problem with CNAs

    That's exactly what I do: I write their assignments, and I highlight it too... and I tell them: if for any reason you did not or could not do this, tell me ASAP... Doesn't help Also when they are utilized as sitters, they literally sit on the chair, ...
  11. Reamed for ordering an ethics consult

    You have handled this really well. Some MDs feel frustrated when they can't cure a pt and do not want to let go... Don't let this stop you from calling the resident when you need something. Just act the same way you acted before with her. Think: ...
  12. A problem with CNAs

    Hi, I am a new RN at the teaching hospital. I used to work at the same hospital on a different unit as an RN extern for a year prior to this. As an RN extern, I usually took 4 patients and did am care, assessment, education, charting, etc. Thing...
  13. Dangerous nurses

    Yes, I was taking a report from an RN who had a pt post angio. When I asked where the access site is, she stated "periphery" and when I asked her to specify, she kept repeating "periphery"... How did she do her frequent site checks etc? Same RN is ...
  14. Working as a stripper AND a nurse

    Hmm... do you really like having two part time jobs: one that you don't like but only want for benefits and the other that is not really suited for an educated person but pays well? Maybe you should just find a job that you enjoy and that has benefi...
  15. How about MDs who have an accent? Do they have less patients because patients are not willing to have an MD with an accent? Does "accent" stand for "competency"? I had a group interview for NP program and only two of us out of five in my group got...
