  2. CNM vs WHNP

    Alrighty, so I have been now doing L and D for 2 years and have found it to be my calling. Originally I thought I would be med-surg certified by now, but holy crap after 5 years I have finally realized what I want to do :) And never in a million year...
  3. Traveling Nurses (please inform me of this :-D)

  7. Standing orders (Please explain)

    My question though is that at the hospital I work at we have standing orders for the hospitalists (a sheet that states meds for bowel, bladder, blood cultures, etc), but they are not put on the chart when they come up. So in order for me to implement...

  9. Standing orders (Please explain)

    I have been a RN for about 5 months now and still have the feeling I am not getting the answer I want (so like always I need to ask!). We have hospitalists and not residents (I guess thats what they are called). I am really not familiar with the term...
  10. Confidentiality and phone calls

    Alright so yesterday I had someone call up at the nurses desk to talk to someone. He seemed very distressed and needed to talk to lets say bed 245-1. I tried to transfer him to the bedroom, (not giving out any names or anything), and I must have not ...

  13. Getting certified in Med-surg

    Okay, I have been registered for about 2 weeks (new nurse) have been on my unit for three months and in a week I will be cut from the umbilical cord (scary yes....but I know I must do this in order to gain more confidence!). My question for everyone ...

    Thank you guys for your input! :) I am going to see how that DATAS format works for me tonight. I am doing 3 12's in a row startin' today!
  15. How to give report?

    I am a GN and now am orienting on midnights (which surprisingly I like lol since I have never worked midnights). I guess I am nervous about a lot of things, but I try not to show it. One area I feel like I am lacking in is report. Usually my precepto...
