    Psych nursing under Covid-19

    we are a 30 bed unit still taking admissions, currently capped at 24. we have some private rooms and double rooms. staff is now wearing surgical masks all shift. they are prescreened in the ED but that can always change if they become symptomatic within 14 days on being on the unit. if someone shows signs of illness, we are keeping them in the seclusion room until they can be transferred to medicine. as far as groups, we are trying to keep them to no more than 8 patients per group. there really is no social distancing on the unit, that is impossible. people are still sitting next to each other eating, watching tv, and playing games. good luck and stay safe!

    any 1:1 school nurses in here

    Hello, I did not get offered the job. They ended up hiring another nurse with better experience. I am glad in the end because I did not have good experience with children and epilepsy. Also it would of been a bit boring sitting in a class all day long just watching the student.

    Bad idea to take MA position even though i am a RN??

    UPDATE I decided to let the office of the MA position know that I am going to move on and look for a RN job. I thanked them and wished them luck in their search for an MA. I went on the Early intervention Pedi nurse job interview that went well. I am going on a job shadow this Thursday to see hands on what the job entails. I also have a job interview for an Allergy and Asthma nurse office position. That interview is this Wednesday. Has anyone worked as an allergy nurse in an office setting before? Thanks for your time in reading this.. Erin

    Bad idea to take MA position even though i am a RN??

    So I have my other interview tomorrow for the Pedi RN position, and today I just got called for a weekends only RN position in a brand new short stay unit. I am interested in that as well. I just wonder if they would hire me even though I do not have rehab experience. That would definitely allow me to use my skills I learned in school. I do know that this job would be physical though on my back. I am willing to try it if the pedi RN position does not go through.

    I will update you guys when I have more info about this situation. I can tell you that I did just get called for an interview for a pedi RN early intervention position working with at risk newborns up to age three. I am going in on Wed for this interview. They train on the job and I do have some pedi experience, even though it is only working in a school capacity as a nurse. I hope this works out and would be a better fit for me.. Thank you again for all the comments, I appreciate it.:)

    thank you... I did apply to a few companies and I got turned down at all of them for lack of experience. This does stink because how am I ever going to learn and gain experience if no one will give me the chance...

    Bad idea to take MA position even though i am a RN??

    I had the interview on Friday and have not heard back. The manager said she needs to make sure all her docs are on board with having a nurse work in an MA role. She will get back to me next week. Honestly I do not know what to do... My head is telling me this is a bad idea, I should not take it.. But then I will be left once again with no job, no income. How could I gently let them down by not accepting if they do offer me the job? I am glad I came to allnurses and asked for opinions because a lot of you have made me think of things I was just not thinking of if I did take the job. Of course my parents are telling me to take it but they do not understand things like we all do since we work in healthcare..

    Bad idea to take MA position even though i am a RN??

    I have applied to multiple home health agencies and they denied me saying I do not have experience. I actually interviewed with Bayada and I was turned down at the end of the interview because of my low skill set. It was for a pedi private duty job.

    Honestly I do not believe they can triage in Massachusetts but they do though.. Some offices around here just have MA's and they do everything.
