    When a patient states "something isnt right..."

    I agree my last time it happened the patient eventually died in ICU.

    Is Nursing as Stressful as Nursing School?

    More so at nursing school not responsible for pt. And hard to get out in time; trying to keep multiple pt.s healthy when to call or not. Are all decisions you make and host of others all night long

    No light duty for RN's in my hospital - is this typical?

    We have light duty at my hospital lots of auditing charts. Right now on short-term disability due to a meniscus tear Dr. Will not release me to do it oh well.
  5. I think psych pts. Are hard to deal with on the normal floor because we are not equipped for it. LOCKED units or protocols for it. We are stuck with their behavior along with the five other pts. Noone to keep them safe because our techs have 10 other pts.
  6. Teach pt. Suctioning makes me want to hurl. Pts. Who feel the need to show me what they coughed up like I do not believe them. Spine pts pain control issues. Lazy pts. Who will not get up and would rather pee on themselves then use the bedside commode. Pysch pts. For obvious reasons.

    Starting Salary [new grad]?

    In Indianapolis it is 21.65 plus shift diff at night of10% and 15% on weekends.
  8. Love my job but physically and emotionally draining. I am on shortterm disability because of my knees. Miss my coworkers and pts. If yo are in nursing school already suggest you get a tech job it helps with finding a job and gets you in a hospital. In Indiana my hospital hires its tech as RN's. If you are going in for the money I would discourage it not worth it too hard although I make a good wage stress is high and money is no reason to get into s profession.

    Rejection Galore

    Try to email her to remind her of your interest in the position. Be proactive and aggressive. I landed a job that way. Hope you sent a thank you for the interview. Keeps your name in front of her And remind her of you'd qualifications for the position. Just a thought in tight market.

    New Grad RN-->No Jobs, Then what?

    I graduated in October 2009. Started 2010 in a prison infirmary with an Aa in nursing and Ba in chemistry . I interviewed about 12 places and not sure amount of resumes went out. I talked about my experience that I did have. First few interviews were on contacts. I landed three positions one in mental health. Overweight but personable. Took a hospital job they were hiring we were in fact understaffed til this yr. Still have prn positions. Been there a yr and half. Just goes to prove out of the box does work. Some things they needed to train me other things they did not you need to go and find opportunities that you might not want to do rather think you are better than the job. In Indiana all my friends ended up with jobs just took time.
