lilbit757's Latest Activity

  1. I am a new grad 2nd week working as a nurse of a psych unit. We pass alot of meds there. I enjoy the unit and the staff they are very welcoming. Feeling uneasy I think I gave a whole pill of Ativan one mg at 3pm (that was the only med. scheduled at 3pm). instad of half a pill. THat pt. fell that day earlier and I had alot going on This was my first day with 3 pt.s maybe I should decrease my pt. load back to 2 pts. I feel so incompetent. I don't know if my mind was playing tricks on me when I got home but I could sworn I double check the med I will have to look at pt.s MAR when I get back to work if so I will have to tell my Nurse manager. I guess you can say I was working at a steady pace but if it was a whole dose I gave instead of half. I'll be kicking myself in the butt for a long time.

    Nurse mngr already hired 3 new grads

    If I knew she was in talks to hire those 2 other new grads on our floor. I would of pushed my boards up sooned. But everything happens for a reason. So I take it for whats it worth. Really I think when it all comes down to it I'm the only one looking out for me in a sense.

    Nurse mngr already hired 3 new grads

    Well I work on a M/S Telemetry floor as a CP for 2 years. I officially graduated college in July. I scheduled my boards for Sept. 30, 2009. (Liscense didn't go online until Oct. 1) I took my boards and passed. In the meantime in May/June my NM hired a new grad intern. Then in Sept and in early Oct she hired 2 more new grads. This is the kicker you can only have 3 grads on your floor. And I missed the internship deadline. So of course when I told my NM I passed boards she already has 3 new grads and will ask director of nursing for any accomodations for me, She felt bad. My NM said if I would of took the boardas sooner She would of took me over the last applicant. She didnt know I was taking my boards that early. Anywho I aked around and went to other NM floor noone's hiring New grads. Positions already filled. One NM on another floor who I spoke with said she had one position open but she has somebody who is about to take their boards. I feel like why my NM couldnt hold a spot for me. To make a long story short Ive been doing applications and am getting nowhere. I just feel like my NM wasn't taking my situation into consideration. Now Im still a CP at this facility but to be honest that kinda hurted my feelings. I thought you look out for those on our own floor first then people coming from outside the hospital. Has this happened to anyone else?

    New Grad job troubles

    yeah so much for the nursing shortage, for now ima just keep reviewing my prentice hall nclex book to keep everything fresh who knows how long we will have to wait for economy to pick up. Usually hospitals hire new grads in groups in October and May. So maybe some of us will have to keep looking and if we still can't find anything, have to wait until May

    NEW GRADS IN VA (hampton roads area)

    I just recently passed my boards first try on October 1, 2009. I am currently a CNA at a hospital. I just missed the RN internship class. I talked to most of the the nurse managers, they have reached their limit for new grad positions. So Im still doing my CNA title until I hear back from other facilities I applied at, or a position opens up within the hospitial. Is there anyone who lives in the hampton roads area knowing of any facilities hiring new grads Rns? This is depressing anyone else having trouble? Im just being patient and will continue to keep looking, God hasn't brought me this far to leave me stranded.
