  1. I am currently working on a tele unit, and I have about 1 year of RN experience. I have been wanting to be a trauma nurse since I started nursing school, and I originally saw myself working in the ED. Then during school, I decided that I wanted to ...
  2. I am a new nurse (graduated last Sept), and I currently work in a non-profit hospital in a major city. Our population is very diverse - a lot of our patients are homeless, drug-addicted, no insurance, many are illegal aliens - you get the picture. ...
  3. I was just asking because I thought there was a chance that someone here might know the answer. Nobody's home at MONA on Saturdays, and I will call them Tues if I can't figure it out before then.
  4. I was in the trauma room and we needed a rectal temp on a trauma patient, and I lubed up the probe & handed it to the Dr (resident) because I couldn't reach around her, and she said "Where do I put it?" The patient was already log-rolled onto hi...
  5. I can't log in to the MONA website. If I paid for the full membership of ANA, including a state membership, does anyone know how can I log in to the state site? TIA!
  6. Thanks. I am looking at the ANA website right now, and I have another question. I live in KS, and work in MO, and I have a 2-yr contract, so I will be working at least another 1-1/2 yrs in MO. I am looking for a PRN position on the KS side. Shoul...
  7. I am a fairly new nurse (graduated in Sept last year, and passed boards in Oct), and I am currently in a nurse residency program working as a Clinical Nurse RN on a step-down/telemetry unit. I just had my name placed on the wait list to get transfer...
  8. I graduated from nursing school 6 mos ago, and I got hired in Jan at one of my top 2 hospitals of choice! However, I applied for days, and they offered me nights, which I accepted, just b/c I wanted this job so badly. I've never worked nights in my...
  9. Uhhh...wasn't going to bury my nose in a book. Just wanted a quick reference for drugs, labs, etc.
  10. I'm looking for a pocket reference for tele nurses. I'm a fairly new grad, and I work in a tele/step-down unit. I wanted something with the most commonly-referred to info for cardiac meds, labs, etc. What do you recommended? (BTW, I prefer the ones t...
  11. I am SO excited! I just got a nursing residency position in the telemetry department at a big teaching hospital in my area. I graduated in Sept, and have been looking for a FT RN position like crazy ever since. This hospital just started a nursing...
  12. My God, these family members!!

    So, did you kiss this doc as he was on his way out? I would have!
  13. I start orientation at my 1st position tomorrow in a local LTC facility (while I look for a FT job in a hospital). Even though I'm disappointed not to have a hospital job yet, I am starting to get excited for tomorrow! I'm also very nervous. I enjoye...
  14. Wow. Our clinical instructors kept us in line a lot better than some, apparently. The students in our group NEVER would have taken a chair at the nurses station. We would have gotten our butts chewed (and rightfully so) if we had been caught stand...
  15. I've applied for a bunch of jobs in the last few weeks. I think the 10 year gap in employment (due to being a stay-at-home-mom) is my problem (not to mention no one seems to want new grads). I am going to try addressing this on my next few applicat...
