    males vs females as new RN's.

    Hi i brought up this topic on another subforum but getting no answers because there seems to be not a lot of active users there, I was wondering whats the take on gender preferences/need and hiring around the country, also particularly in Connecticut for new graduate RN's? Are males able to get hired better? And are there states that are more male needy or female needy? Also do males receive better pay as new graduate RN's(and how much aprxmtly?) in CT or generally in US. And why is that there is such an advantage for males in nursing?

    2 week orientation a must?

    Hi i posted this on another forum but getting no responses. I'm currently a senior for my RN BSN. and I want to get a job as a CPA, but i have a question as to what I should do. almost all the position descriptions say that the job requires a 2 week minimum orientation which is full-time monday-friday. Since Im full time student, I cannot fullfill this. Are there any ways around it that I can work out with the hospital or am I just not competent to apply at all if I cannot give the time for orientation because of school? If i shouldn't even apply, then what are my options? As I would like to get a CPA position so that I would have a better chance of getting hired there as an RN. Thanks!

    Bactrim post-op?

    im pretty sure, except what I can find in the drug book does not answer my main question because i was taught to think outside the box as a nurse, not just read off facts from the drug book. so that's why i thought maybe ill ask here if anyone had any experience with this . and thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bactrim post-op?

    And there doctors speculate that this is happening because of poor kidney excretion of potassium due to the antibiotics being excreted by the kidney as well. so what i was wondering was would it have the same potential if the patient only takes it for 14 days? but anyways.. good talk.

    Bactrim post-op?

    although the drug books do not state it. it has been reported that it causes potassium elevation. and Ive researched that some of the nursing teaching is to teach the patients not to consume too much potassium. i thought there are people here that can contribute from experience and not just state facts from a book that I can find myself. thanks tho.

    Bactrim post-op?

    Its not for an assignment since school hasnt started this semester yet. Im just reviewing and came across this. The thing im wondering most is whether or not the Bactrim would cause problems with potassium since its only a 2 week treatment. Im leaning towards no because its a short period of time, unless its a heart patient then it would need to be monitorred. Am I on the right tract?

    Bactrim post-op?

    Hi im a nursing student, first post here, just wondering about a prescription regimen.. A person given an antibiotic regimen of Bactrim for two weeks following an outpatient foot surgery... do they have to worry about their potassium levels being elevated? should they avoid bananas and potassium rich foods? And should they get blood work done? Also what is the most important thing to know, with this regimen? Thanks!
