rdsxfnrn has 10 years experience.

I was a grandma before I became a nurse! I went directly from nsg school to school nsg. I would not suggest doing that.. I have a ton of respect for the man that had faith in me :)

  3. Huge disaster

    When you counted with the off-going nurse was the card there? Did the medtech pour meds in the dining room and you passed them? Big no no if so. How did they "find" narc sign out sheets in the shredder? Is that not the purpose of the shredder? There ...
  4. A really stupid incident

    Methadone is a controlled substance. Not sure what state you are in but in CT controlled substances must be wasted with two registered nurses. So now you have a "missing" dose of a controlled substance. This is very much frowned upon. No, your patien...
  5. withholding medications ethical dilemma

    Because you were assigned as a sitter, so you did "not need to know". You did not have any medical reason to be in her chart as you were not assigned to care for any of her medical needs. If you truly are in nursing school the fact that you do not kn...

  11. Am I overthinking this?

    I was orienting there. Red flags all over. I agonized over it for 2 days and realized there was NO WAY I wanted to work under those conditions, so I let them know that. Feel so much better. : )

  14. What would you have done?

    So, this is the scenario: staff at camp was warming up for dance class, said he stretched his arms up too far, and heard a crack in his back, then suffering horrible back pain. When I got to him, he was laying on the floor on his stomach, an ice pack...
