    Pharmacology Exam

    You may want to ask this in the Louisiana section but I would assume it is a drug calc test like most in this area.

    Physical Rehab for new grad

    Lol. Guess I worded that incorrectly. I am actually concerned it won't count as "med-Surg" experience. From the interview, description and shadowing it definitely seemed just like med Surg but wasn't sure how it will count in the future, on paper. And I do remember her saying they got new management and are getting sicker patients. Guess I was still thinking about the "stable" portion of the job description.

    Physical Rehab for new grad

    I have been offered a job in a rehab unit at a local hospital but can't decide if I should take it. I have 6 months in med Surg but am scared I won't get enough experience in rehab. Any thoughts?

    Shreveport/Bossier area hiring criteria

    Everyone that looked for a job. I only know of a few that aren't and that's bc they haven't applied or haven't found what they want. Southern.

    Shreveport/Bossier area hiring criteria

    They hire ADN but one hospital just announced its closing so right now I'm sure those being let go will get the jobs at the other hospitals. I graduated in December with ADN and everyone has jobs in Shreveport/Bossier at many diff hospitals.

    Would you recommend physical rehab for a new grad? I have until Tuesday to make my decision!

    Weekend Only Shift

    $7 more per hour. One weekend off every six months. I am scheduled to speak with HR for all the details on Tuesday. I just know I can't stay in my current job. Lol

    Weekend Only Shift

    Husband is home 2 weeks of every month (gone 2 weeks), so I am either working or asleep when he is home since I now work nights. If he worked Monday-Friday it would interfere but I don't think it will much since I will have 4 days off/week and see him during that time.

    Weekend Only Shift

    I currently work nights, shift work but have been offered a position that is days, weekend only. I have a child and think this would be nice for school and sports activities during the week. Does anyone else work this schedule or have any thoughts? I have to decide by Tuesday. Thanks!

    I need massive help. But from who?

    I went in a few interviews just scared of the grass not being greener! Lol But everyone I've talked to agrees that most new grads are not done this way

    I need massive help. But from who?

    This sounds like my situation! I am a new grad who started in February. Last night I was floated to a unit I've never been to and had to be charge! I'm seriously considering quitting....

    Thoughts on new grad being made charge?

    JUST got off orientation and will be the only RN. I have told them I do not feel it is safe nor do I feel comfortable, only to be met with jokes about "sink or swim". I don't even really know what I'm doing at this point so how can I make these decisions for others?!
