    Areas of nursing you would NOT like?

    No desk jobs for me. I had one of those, disliked it and headed to nursing school. I have worked in ASCs and loved it! Now I am in the endo suite in a hospital. I love procedures! The work itself can be a bit monotonous, but I love that I take...

    Thank you for all you do!

    You made me smile! I see my role as an endo RN to take what is a pretty crummy day for the patient and make it as decent as humanly possible. I'm glad that my fellow RNs have the same attitude and treated you so well! Glad to hear your procedur...
  3. The most I have witnessed is slightly upward of 600mg. I am curious as to what you mean by the dosing is controversial? I have seen propofol administered by CRNAs and anesthesiologists, and I have done it myself (NAPS). The CRNAs I know of put i...

    Music Therapy in the PACU and Pre op area

    I wrote a nursing school paper on providing individualized music in PACU! Pts don't need to listen to all that garbage going on around them. It's hard to feel good when the person next to you, separated only by a curtain, is heaving or howling in...

    Low Census

    Same at my outpt center. Hired for 40 and my manager really does do everything possible to make sure all staff are able to get their hours, but sometimes it just can't be done. If I lose one hour each day (which does happen) it comes to about $8000...

    No even remotely true.

    Not sure if nursing if for me

    I hated CNA training, but had to have it for acceptance into nursing school. Really, really hated it. Love nursing!! It would be important to explore why you dislike CNA work. For me (and I may get flamed for this) I really dislike assisting wi...

    Federal Resume help

    Really? Interview every applicant who meets minimum qualifications? I have never heard that. Sounds crazy time consuming and very inefficient. Maybe I misunderstood what you posted.

    All white male nursing shoes available in wide

    Try Klogs.
  12. I actually talked out loud to myself during my last interview. The question was one of those "behavior" questions and wasn't difficult, but my mind was absolutely blank and I couldn't come up with a scenario. So, instead, I turned my head to the si...

    VA Hiring Process

    I am about to start with the VA. I have a BS in psych and an ADN. I have 2.5 yrs total RN experience with about one year of the very specific specialty I was hired into. I was boarded at Nurse 1 level 3 step 8. I am fine with the $ offer as it i...

    The *EXPERT* Beginner

    I am a mere two years in and still often make a list of things I hear throughout the day that are a mystery to me. Then I can be sure and ask someone or do some research on my own. I have also had the opportunity to help mentor a couple of new grad...

    Endoscopy Center without RN in procedure room ??

    Kind of taking this thread on a tangent....but my experience has been that insurance will only cover conscious sedation for the scoping unless there is a medically justifiable reason for deep sedation. We only have an anesthesiologist once per week ...

    Help me out, endo nurses!

    Just saw this! Congrats on your new job! I think it would be good to review Chron's, ulcerative colitis, Barrett's esophagus, celiac/sprue, h pylori to start. I have never felt like I have to know TONS about these topics- just enough to be able t...
