    Cannot wait to transition to the cath lab!

    Yes, and every other month you can opt to split call week nights if you want to! I don't have to stay awake, I go in if I get called and lounge around the house if I don't. I got called in several times this past weekend, didn't mind at all. Every ti...

    Cannot wait to transition to the cath lab!

    You can either do one Friday 7p- Monday 7a, or Saturday 7a- Monday 7a + one 12 hour night call per month, as long as it equals out to 60 hours. One holiday a year on call.
  3. I'm a pedi ER nurse (with adult ER experience as well) and getting ready for a new adventure. Our cath lab is diagnostic and interventional. I cannot wait to be part of a TAVR! Can't wait for a swan! We're also cross training to interventional radiol...

    Which position for a nurse with a young baby?

    Which position for a nurse with a young baby?

    Financially I think it'll balance out. I'm just torn between what's probably better for my family vs fulfilling career dreams. I likely won't get this PICU opportunity again.
  6. I really need advice. I have to make a decision between these two positions. I have a one year old baby and am really stuck between choosing what I really want and what may be better for my family. Just for background, I'm not a new nurse and have do...

    New to pedi ER and pregnant

    I've worked a combination of the ER and pediatrics for 7 years, but now I'm finally combining them and I couldn't be more excited! I was up front in the interview and they know I'm expecting. Is there anything I should be cautious about exposure to o...

    New to special care

    I worked in the ER before this and all the things I didn't like about the ER are the things I didn't like about L&D. I had some scary experiences and I did not like the limited control. I was also not a fan of most of the OBs. I absolutely love s...

    No, we definitely should be paid. We spent tens of thousands of dollars to fulfill this dream and we work hard for our money. We are super lucky to work in an area that fills our hearts and makes the day fly though!

    Brigham and Women's Hospital

    Brigham is the best paid Partners hospital, but BMC is the highest paid overall.

    New to special care

    Yes!!! My family has commented on he change they've seen in me and how happy I am. It's so awesome to watch them grow and I love being able to find something that can comfort them. We don't have child life so I've been looking into things I can do fo...

    New to special care

    I am the happiest labor and delivery failure on the planet. I lasted three whole weeks before talking to my boss and I'm so grateful she allowed me to transition to special care. I've been orienting for a week and I absolutely love it. I worked in a ...

    Hating L&D

    What gives me anxiety is the following.... 1) I can only do so much to bring a baby's heart rate back up and it's still at least five minutes from decision to stat section delivery. 2) Some of our docs will do anything to place blame on nursing...

    Hating L&D

    I went to school to become a maternity nurse. I loved everything about it. I finally have my chance and it is taking all of my willpower to stick it out. I like the postpartum piece just fine and thought I'd love L&D with my ER background but I h...
