  1. Looking for some thoughts of others on accepting a position

    Thanks for input. I appreciate it. I'm currently still considering the offer...
  2. I'm, I suppose at this point "experienced". I've been an RN for 2 years, moving into my 3rd year as an RN. I work in an ER near my home, a 10- 15 minute commute depending on traffic down the main drag. Here's my dilemma... basically to stay or go. My...
  3. Being a Patient Where you Work

    I would, because there really is no other ED close by in the community unless I want to drive an hour + in either direction. For a true emergency, I'd have no choice.
  4. Best Drug Seeker Stories

    The only thing that works is that one, it starts with a D, sounds like Bin Laden. LOL
  5. Agree 200%. I have learned some of the best tricks from PCTs and CNAs. They are a wonderful resource. VALUE them.
  6. This is DAY ONE! Don't be so hard on yourself. If you made it through the day, and didn't cause any harm to a pt, then it was a good day. We ALL make mistakes, even seasoned nurses make mistakes. Learn from them. Make it a point to ask as many questi...
  7. New grad in the ER seeking advice

    I have my own resource book that I put together, it's a 3 ring binder and it has all my hospital protocols with a lot of the common critical care drips and other things that I encounter often in the ED. It has my lab values in it, etc. I used to use ...
  8. How long did it take you to master inserting an IV?

    Tell everyone that you want experience doing IVs. Ask them to come get you if you have the time, and let you do the IV. Do as many as you can! Seek out opportunities. The only way to get better is to practice practice practice!
  9. new graduate nurse taking TNCC ?

    TNCC is a great class, as a new grad I think it's a fantastic idea to take. It will give you a process and some rationale to put behind your practice in the ED with trauma patients. The book that is used for the course is more than sufficient enough ...
  10. New Graduates who don't welcome feedback

    It sounds like you've got some bad apples there in your department. It might be worthwhile to mention your frustration to your management, especially if you have attempted to resolve the issue yourself with these new nurses. Nobody wants to see anyon...
  11. New Grad Pay in Winston-Salem area

    Unfortunately, NC is a non-union state so demanding more pay "as a group" is difficult. There's really no way to force a hospital to pay more without a union. None that I know of anyway.
  12. Whats your yearly salary and nurse title?

    BSN prepared nurse working in a specialty area, I make between $40k-$60k depending on how much over time I accumulate throughout the year. It's not an unusual circumstance that I work 4 or 5 12 hour shifts per week d/t staffing needs within my depart...
  13. New grad friendly parts of NC?

    Onslow County is New Grad friendly. There is one hospital there, and as far as I know they hire new grads, and have a pretty extensive orientation period for unexperienced nurses. They also hire ADN and BSN prepared nurses alike.
  14. Hello, I am wanting information regarding the ER at Carolina East? I am not a new grad, am an experienced ER nurse with an upcoming interview. Just wondering if any current or former employees may have some info about the department? How is the work...
  15. Online FNP in North Carolina

    Are you able to do clinicals in North Carolina or do you have to do them in TN? I live in Eastern Carolina, so the TN border is quite a ways.
