  1. Done with nursing school!

    :ancong!: And on to the next one. ^_^
  2. First Shift -- is this exhaustion normal?

    You will definitely feel better after a few more shifts and it's totally normal. Think about how people feel after an enormous Thanksgiving dinner, just as their stomach is crammed with food, your mind is crammed with new things and both are very, VE...
  3. THOSE WHO MIND DON'T MATTER AND THOSE WHO MATTER DON'T MIND. You should bring a bell to work one day, ring it, and tell them that recess is over. ^_^
  4. help with path to crna

    Hi there! As a forewarning, do not be offended by what I say. You want advice, I'm here to give it. In terms of your question(s), you need to take a step back and analyze what it is that you want to do, make a game plan for yourself and stick to it. ...
  5. RN jobs off the beaten path....

    Never underestimate the power of a "quirky" or different type of nursing career. Apply to places you may not have thought of before and see where that takes you. Once you have a career, it's a lot easier to get people (aka recruiters) to notice you. ...
  6. BSN recent grad -should i get a CNA???

    Please, please, PLEASE!!! Do not wait so long to take your NCLEX. Each day that goes by is another tidbit of information that you'll likely forget about nursing fundamentals. You should take it in July instead and don't even think about applying to b...
  7. Am I'm too serious to be a RN?

    And this is why we need to continue to have a spectrum of personalities amongst RNs. Take this as an opportunity to learn from and appreicate others' behaviors and characteristics. Don't be intimidated; it's not like you're going home with these peop...
  8. Nurse Extern Interview at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Chicago

    First off, Congrats on getting past HR at Northwestern! I currently work there and the interview process is just like any other. Since you are a student, they are going to focus on questions that will expose your strengths and behaviors in situation...
  9. Peers who will look down on you are no friend or mentor to you. Instead, seek out those who are ready and willing to provide vital information and immediate feedback as you will most definitely gain experience this way. And don't be so hard on yourse...
  10. Work at Rehab, Lose Chance in Med/Surg?

    It all depends on how you sell yourself during the resume-review/interview process. If you present yourself as "I only want med-surg, any other job will suck", then you won't look appealing to the recruiter. However, if you do come up lucky and get a...
  11. Concerned that my "type B" personality won't cut it!

    LOL! After a little research, I realized that I too am a Type B personlaity, like, to the fullest! I do branch away from such personality at times like being a perfectionist at some tasks and am a neat freak, but that doesn't overshadow my other, mor...
  12. New RN Grad...Cant find a job...NOW WHAT?

    Hello there! I'm so sorry that you are having difficulty finding a job right now! I was in the same predicament not too long ago, but I found out how to be creative in getting the jobs that I have. It definitely is all about who you know when it come...
  13. I see the night shift as a fabulous incubation period for new grad RNs (I know that sounds awakward and disturbing, but work with me!). It gives us the time to process each task that we do and this is not to say that night shift is easy and requires ...
  14. Panel Interview?

    Hello there! The panel interview is indeed a face-to-face interview where you will probably sit across the table from a nurse manager, RN staff, maybe a unit director, and other ancillary staff that have a few minutes to spare for the interview. It w...
  15. has everyone forgotten what its like to be new??

    Awesomeness! I'm glad that you are vowing to make a change and help out those in need once you become more experienced. Not to say that every experienced nurse is mean and not helpful but it definitely leaves a lasting impression for the few that are...
