    Ebola... What'cha Gonna Do When It Comes to You

    Our policy is. At our entrance it states if you have recently visited Nigeria Liberia etc please notify the front desk reception prior to triage. Yup that's a good method! ( insert sarcasm right here ) we have shared bathrooms and only two airborne ISO rooms. Mind you this is one of the best hospitals in central nj. We got a mass email that a policy has been put in place but no info of this policy! I'd love to see more then two ebola pts come in. Funny how the top notch hospital such as Emory or Texas has only 3 proper ISO rooms as stated in their press report. By the time the test would come back positive the nurses doctors techs transport people would have all been in contact. I'm sorry but I did not sign up to "die due to my exposures at my job." Since flu season is upon us many nurses have been calling out sick due to getting the flu thanks to our patients. What does management do? They sit and complain about the call outs! Maybe the managers and charge r n will be left to take care of the ebola pts should this really get out of control :) Id be interested to see how many nurses start refusing care of an Ed pt who has traveled to the areas of the ebola crisis.

    I Want to be an RN, PLEASE HELP!!

    Yes you can do it in ONLY 5 semesters, however, please don't take any offense to this, 5 semesters in a tough nursing program compared to psych classes is much different. you will have no life for 2 years and when I mean no life, I mean any of your time off is consumed by studying, learning, practicing, or being in nursing school :) Why do you want to do nursing if you recently just graduated with a psych degree? nursing is quite different field. also just as an fyi many new grads are having much difficulty finding jobs.
