JordiesMomRN has 9 years experience and specializes in CCU, Infection Control.

Finished my RN to BSN in August of 2014-SUNY Delhi, loved the program. I have worked in the CCU for about 6 years and case management for about 18 months. January of 2015, I started in my new role as an infection preventionist. I am very excited to be in the new role. I have joined and great IC team and look forward to all that I have to learn.

    Wilmington University Post Masters FNP program

    OK, I get it. Do you think that going the ground program route, versus online, would help? I did my BSN at SUNY-Delhi (NY). Excellent program!! But when I graduated in about 2014, they only offered the MSN in Education. I'm sorry that I cannot help; hoping that a student from Wilmu will reach out. If you happen to have your program from graduation, you can view the FNP graduates. You can try to reach out via Linkedin. I have done that to find one of my classmates. I wish you the best on your journey! Reneé

    Wilmington University Post Masters FNP program

    Hi Denisse, I completed my MSN there (online) in 2017. I was looking for a program that also had a ground program, good reputation, and was reasonably priced. I thought the program was alright and I did not have any real issues. My RN to BSN (at another school) was much better. I was thinking about going for my NP, but I probably will not. Why did you feel robbed by Wilmu? Good Luck!!

    MSN in Patient Safety and Healthcare Quality

    I there! I am a quality management specialist (QMS) and I love my job! I would recommend that you try "shadow" a QMS at your place of employment to really get the feel of what we do. Keep in mind that different employers will have different job descriptions etc...... I thought I wanted to be an infection preventionist. Long story short, I hated it!! That's why I recommend learning more about the specialty before working towards an MSN in that specific concentration. I have my MSN in Leadership. I obtained it while like you, working 3-4 12 hr shifts a week. My son was about 16y/o then (no little ones) so it was definitely doable and so worth it for me. Good Luck on whatever you decide! Check out the IHI website, as well as NAHQ.org Hi There!

    Any nurse auditors out there?

    Hi Carl, I am a quality management specialist. I review charts all the time, from a quality presepective. I'm not too sure what a nurse auditor does. If you could explain, I might be able to help. Reneé

    What is your Nursing Kryptonite?

    In was just waiting to see someone's Kryptonite of "retching and vomiting"!! I cannot handle this either because I start to retch!! LOL....it's so silly and weird. I can love the slurping and satisfaction of deep tracheal suctioning, but cannot stand vomit!! Super EWWWWWW!!
  7. Hello QIqueen (I love your name :)), Thanks for taking the time to share this great information. I feel like I have a better starting point now
  8. RiskManager thank you so much for taking the time to respond to my posting with this valuable information. Forgot to mention that I will be transferring into this position, I am a bit familiar with the Quality Improvement Director. The director has a team of about 4 different Quality Specialists. Pretty certain that I will be able to tap into available internal resources for assistance. I will definitely be reaching out to you again. I like to be proactive and start to do some studying and investigating on my own. Greatly appreciate your help and words of wisdom!
  9. Hello Everyone, I have accepted a job as a Patient Safety/Quality Coordinator of a cardiac line [Cath Lab, Echo/ TEE lab, EKG, Cardiac Rehabilitation]. I will start in this newly created position in May. I have been an infection control nurse for 16 months. Before that, I was CCU nurse for about 6 years. I enjoy the IC position, but sort of missed the cardiac world. I think that this position will be a good fit for me. I was wondering if members of this forum would be willing to share some of their "Pearls of QI Wisdom" with me. Are there any good textbooks that I can refer to to help me in this role? Does anyone have any auditing tolls that they would be willing to share? Even if the tools are not specific to a cardiac line, it would likely still be helpful to me. Any help and advice will be greatly appreciated.
