    LVADS in the community

    It might be a good idea to invest in some dopplers so you can check pressures... also the pt. will know how to manage their VAD so.. =) it couldn't hurt to have a family member tag along just in case

    What makes you irritated by student nurses?

    I'd *love* to see this type of interaction on another professional board... ...only nursing:rolleyes:

    Is a phone call a good sign?

    Hey hon, I doubt he'd call to say, "Ummm no sorry, we don't want you." to the 500+ applicants, take it as a good sign! Get some rest and call bck tomorrow! Protip (to new grads looking for a job) give your cell phone number when applying and carry it with you AT ALL TIMES!!! ALL TIMES! #kanyeshrug
  5. Hey aqua, Was it more clinical questions? Get to know you questions? Scenarios? How well do you know this drug? ... a mixture of everything? How were they able to rush you and also get an evaluation on you?

  7. Hmmm.. you say you're afraid your GPA won't get you in *anywhere* but it seems to me like you have your eye on Ivy League schools only. You may not get into one of those three schools. I'd apply at other schools for their BSN/MSN... Take this for what it's worth, it's almost impossible to get a job as a nurse these days. Your plan sounds like it's going to cost you upwards of 60K, what happens if you don't get a job as an NP right away? Good luck

    2 weeks notice

    Wow, this is such a hard situation. I'm not goint to tell you what to do, but i know i've been there and felt that way; critical care is NOT easy starting off in and your preceptors can really make or break you. I hope you come to the conclusion that's best for you!!!

    how to deal with this intensivist

    Ugh, be careful with docs like that who are so hot and cold... that may be their way of trying to be dominant over you read: putting you in fear that one slip up or wrong move/question not sucking up will result in their silent treatment wrath.... forgive, but do not forget or walk on eggshells, this is a smart manipulation move. trust me

    How did you get into the ICU?

    I was a new grad in the ICU and I know this will sound crazy but I only applied to ICU jobs, I refused to apply for anything else, and this was in May-August of 2009! Well my parents thought I was crazy but it worked out, 1 year so far in a lvl 1 Magnet CVICU...

    Hey all, Thanks for taking the time to read this, I am looking for the CCRN Review DVD's by Laura G, if anyone has them and no longer needs them (congratulations first of all!!!) would you mind passing the love on to a fellow nurse!!!! Please feel free to pm me or I'll email you. Thank you so much! -Tsia

    Hiring Staff? When Did That Become My Job?

    yeah, it does sound like you're getting suckered into the position... take it as a compliment, your manager sees you as competent enough to handlethis responsibility, and as someone said, you can use it inthe futurefor your next yearly eval to get a raise, and it is definitely a resume builder. i'd do it :)
