    Thank you- I’m in the middle of my second week- the people are very helpful-I just feel like a fish out of water. My previous job was so much more stressful and complex but I didn’t have to focus so hard mentally as I’m doing now- paper charting and ...

  4. New Job Anxieties For "Mature" Nurse - Help!

    WOW!, I was hoping I’d be feeling pretty good at 6 weeks, not 6 months post-op. How long did you try PT before undergoing the procedure?
  12. I’m 59 yrs old and work on a busy med- surg floor- 12 hr shifts. A few weeks ago I injured my knee doing yard work- heard a big “ pop” , knee gave in and have experienced pain ever since with walking. I‘ve had similar knee pain before but never to ...
  13. Forced to do 12 hr shifts

    I'm a big fan of ASMR, for some reason it only helps me drift off during the day for short naps, never at bedtime.
  14. Forced to do 12 hr shifts

    That's what happened to us, they allowed a few to do a combo or straight 8s, but as those people left, and new hires only being 12 hr shifts, they want to convert everything to 12s. No, it's not fair, but either is freezing our pensions or taking awa...
