    Patient f/u frustration

    It's true that making an appointment when you are suffering with mental illness can be a huge undertaking. I didn't ask the patient what the reason for being late was on that particular day.

    Thank you to everyone for your responses. I appreciate the advice and will definitely take it with me into practice (especially the recommendations to separate emotionally -that's a hard one). I feel better about the choice I made. I am very thankfu...

    Sadly we have no protocol book and I get no feedback from anyone. I really wish I had either one of those things or both. The physician who practices with us is so busy that it's really hard to sit down with him. When I do get the chance I feel very ...

    Thanks, evolvingrn! That is great that you have those quick lab resources. I work with an undeserved population and lose a lot of patients to follow up. Sometimes I'm even unable to get labs on them because they refuse or want me to try to get record...

    Thank you so much for these suggestions. I appreciate it. I'm not going to say which program I attended but I will say that if I had the chance to do it again I would not go there. I feel they did not prepare us. Thank you for responding.

  12. Hi all! I was wondering if there are any San Francisco General Hospital RN's out there in the forum who'd give some feedback about how they like working at SFGH. I know every unit is different but I just wanted to get a sense of whether or not people...

    Just wondering if there is anyone out there who has applied to San Francisco State's MSN program for RN's (fall 2012)... or even current or past students of the program. I'm in the process of submitting the second part of the application and would lo...

    SFSU RN-MSN 2012

    Any applicants out there to San Francisco State University's MSN for RN's? I'm in the process of submitting part two of two of the application. Thought I would hear back from the Graduate Division before submitting the application to the Nursing Scho...
  15. I like the variety of working both day and night shifts! We do self-scheduling at my job though and I can group my nights together so I'm not flip flopping back and forth between nights and days... More resources and things to see on days, but nights...
