  1. Isolation patients

    That makes sense. Going to see if we can make some changes. Seems counterintuitive to me that as PACU nurses we're supposed to be at the patient's bedside doing real-time charting for the time they're with us but the computer is outside.

  4. Rotating shifts on the Eastern Shore

    Hi - I am relocating to the Eastern Shore from the Northeast. Pretty much every job I see (for floor nursing) is a rotating shift. I'm a bit apprehensive about this as I've always been on day shift and at my age am just not sure how well I'll be able...
  5. I will be moving to NYS next year and want to get my NY license prior to moving, since most hospitals seem to require that you have an active license to even interview. I am currently licensed in a compact state. Is there any problem with my maintain...
  6. Albany-area hospitals

    I'm moving to the Albany area this spring and would love some feedback on area hospitals (Albany Medical, Albany Memorial, St. Peter's, etc.) in terms of reputation, culture, pay, etc. I know that Albany Medical is supposed to be a great teaching en...

  8. Pediatric Clinical

    Hi. I was hesitant about doing the peds clinical: I like kids but am not head over heels about them the way some of my classmates are. Also I was nervous about seeing very sick children. I thought I might find that too emotionally difficult.I just fi...

  10. Starting salary for new RN grads at NHRMC

    sfmusso84: curious to hear how your interview went, and what kind of vibe you got from the place. I'm interested in NH as well but not for another 9 mos or so.

  14. Hi - I'm starting A&P I and Inorganic Chem this weekend (yes, Labor Day weekend....!) at Rockland Community College (Rockland County, in NY). Anyone in those classes let me know if you're interested in connecting, online or maybe in a study group...
  15. Help! Organic v inorganic chem?

    Ok, I'm using the "ask the audience" lifeline on this one! Most of the nursing programs I've looked at require at least one chemistry with a lab. I never took chemistry as part of my original bachelor's degree 20 years ago, and only vaguely remember ...
