    Quality of Online NP Programs and Providers

    That's exactly what happened! I know, it killed me. The doctor I work for is literally the sweetest individual I have ever met. She just let it ride.

    Quality of Online NP Programs and Providers

    I'm a new FNP and worked 9 years in med/surg as a nurse before becoming a NP. My bedside experience is proving to be so helpful as I transition into the FNP role. There is a NP student at the office in which I work. She has 1 year of nursing experience at a nursing home and now works as a rehab liaison. She asked the doctor I work with how to give an IM injection. She also has UpToDate access and rattled off information to the doctor I work with in an attempt to educate said doctor. This bothers me on so many levels.
  3. Just wanted to say: I am very happy I went for it. I just started my first NP job a few weeks ago and I can confidently say: it was 100% worth all the blood, sweat, and tears. I did land a sweet gig with two of the most wonderful doctors so that helps a lot. I did work 8.5 years in med/surg and while it probably led me to be kind of depressed and hate my life (because it sucked), I see smooth sailing, in my future, because it made me well-seasoned and taught me so much. It also allowed me to get this job and many job offers before graduation. Not bragging just want to encourage people to put in the hard work because it does pay off.
  4. Sounds very similar to my experience with "go live". I had 6 patients on the first day, had to give blood, discharge a few patients, etc. My employer contracted some "superusers" from a company that was familiar with the new EMR but not from the EMR company itself. They were not nurses and did not know how to answer the majority of my questions. What the heck. Ugh.
  5. Wow, I'm glad to hear it's done differently elsewhere. Thanks for your replies, everyone. Makes me feel less crazy for being outraged.
  6. When your hospital rolled out a new electronic medical record (EMR), did they overstaff (or at least adequately staff) to help with the transition? I recently had the pleasure of working short-staffed during the first few days of a new EMR roll out. It was beyond dangerous: critical orders were missed and not one staff nurse received a lunch break. Just curious how other hospitals handle it. There has got to be a better, more seamless, way.

    Bad idea to quit after 6m as a new grad for DNP school?

    IMO: having bedside experience is crucial to being a good NP. I have worked 8+ years in the hospital and will be starting my first NP job in a few weeks. I cannot imagine launching my career as a NP without that bedside foundation. However: you gotta go what cha gotta do. I get it. Try to find a part-time nursing gig. Bedside or in an office.

    New Grad NP feeling Overwhelmed, Scared

    I'm graduating from a FNP program in 10 weeks. I don't really have any advice but just wanted to say, I'm feeling much of what you're feeling. Hugs.

    The one thing nursing has taught me is...

    Nursing has taught me how to problem solve like a mofo. I've become extremely resourceful and can basically tackle any issue thrown my way. I've been a nurse for 6.5 years. I have a BS in Nutrition/Dietetics and a BSN in Nursing. I have 1.5 years left in my MSN for Family Nurse Practitioner. I work on a surgical/trauma unit.

    The "How was your day" question

    I refuse to interact with people after my shift so this would never happen, haha.

    Great advice. Thanks so much! Started FNP school last August.

    What are the rules of what we can tell patients?

    Sometimes, the ordering MD disagrees with the radiology report.

    pre employment drug screen help

    No. No. A doctor will call you after you "fail" the drug screen and ask what pharmacy you go to or for your prescribing physician's contact information. He/she will verify your scripts and you will be fine. If you want to avoid this hassle, don't take your drugs for a day or two and you'll pass, no problem.

    Is it illegal to place a towel over a patient's face?

    This thread's cracking me up. To answer your question, I don't think it's "illegal" per se but it's definitely not right. I'd probably wear a face shield around this patient and stand back as much as possible. Can you provide a image so I can better visualize how you're going to place the towel over the patient's face?
