    Did you get your flu vax yet?

    Actually, the pre-filled syringes come in both, with and without preservatives. I work at a family practice and we received both types. If you get on the CDC's website, it will state all the manufacturers that supply the vaccine. I know Fluarix, for adults, comes in pre-filled syringes with no preservative.

    The prescription for Depo-Provera is usually picked up at the pharmacy by the patient and then taken to the clinic for administration. At the clinic I work at, a pregnancy test has to be administered before Depo (every time) can be given AND the patient has to have a yearly Pap. Since Depo is given q 3 months, there's a certain "window" that the patient has to get the injection and THEY MUST come within in that certain window. Otherwise, if they're late or fall outside the window, it is solely up to the discretion of the primary care provider to administer it or not. My question is, why is she wanting you to administer it? People who are on Depo usually know that there is a protocol before they can receive it. I WOULD NOT give her the injection for all the "unknowns" l just stated.

    Wanna Be "RN"

    To portray yourself as something you're not is considered as fraud. When I was in nursing school, we went on a "field trip" to the BON. On that particular day, there was a nurse that had to go before the Board and explain her actions because she was portraying herself as something she wasn't. Needless to say, her license got suspended. On top of that, the Board made her do research on fraud as part of her punishment. Wow!

    That's awesome! Thanks for sharing!
  10. I, personally, wouldn't say anything. Like the previous poster said, it may come back to bite you. Even if you did say something to H.R., they probably wouldn't reprimand her because of what you said. I would just part ways on a peaceful note and stay PRN. My $0.02

    Best sources for textbooks

    I used Dealoz.com. You can search by the author, title, or ISBN. I love it because you can see and compare the prices for all the vendors.

    any job movement for indy new grads?

    I was wondering if there had been any job movement, period. All I seem to see are a lot of postings from Maxim, Loving Care agency, and TLC.
