  1. Hi Anthony! I also would like to know more about working at Rochester Strong Hospital, if you have some time please. Thank you! 

  2. Shadowing in L+D, questions

    Well, my shadow shift went great! I loved it :)
  3. Shadowing in L+D, questions

    Yes it would be 20hrs in L&D and 20hrs in ICU, and I would not be "pullable" from one unit to work in the other during my scheduled shifts. After orientation, I would also do call in L&D in addition to the 20hrs per week. That's reassuri...
  4. Shadowing in L+D, questions

    It is important to me, particularly knowing the shifts, holidays and call I'd be required to do, as I'll be splitting time between two departments. Thanks, I appreciate the advice. Can I ask how your experience has been, as a male in L&D? An...
  5. Shadowing in L+D, questions

    I'm an experienced Critical Care nurse, currently working in a combined medical/surgical ICU for the past several years, but I have been interested in Labor and Delivery for a while now... (it was actually my favorite clinical rotation as a nursing s...
  6. CPR Universal Precautions

    If you have a cut or open wound on those areas, it should probably already be covered while you're at work. Also, there are much messier things than CPR that you're likely to encounter on a day to day basis.
  7. CCRN certification renewal audit

    Hey all, I'm wondering if anyone else has been lucky enough to be randomly chosen to have their CCRN renewal audited, and if so what was the experience like? I've already put together most of the information they've asked for (which is fairly extens...
  8. I think I could learn a lot from NOADLS
  9. Dress code for continuing education

    Usually business casual, unless you are also scheduled to work on the floor either before or after the class - in which case it should be fine to show up in scrubs.
  10. A listening ear is also a running mouth.

    I think getting to know your coworkers, and allowing them to get to know you, is an important part of being a team. I realize you were just venting, but it sounds like you have a very cynical point of view. Things like your age and where you are f...
  11. Say What?

    I don't understand. It sounds like he came over to let you know he was getting two of your patients and he was waiting for report, but you just stood there saying nothing. Then you got frustrated because HE didn't say anything, and you refused to giv...
  12. FitBit at work

    I wear the Fitbit Surge. It's the one that is also a full sized watch. I needed a new watch, and I had been wanting a Fitbit, so this was an obvious choice for me. The only annoyance is that I work nights and the steps reset to zero at midnight, ...
  13. What now?

    Are you an AACN member? Perhaps consider getting involved in your local chapter.
  14. Rochester, NY New Grad

    Send me a PM, I'd be happy to chat.
  15. Having to meet with the hospitals lawyer

    They're going to ask you a lot of questions, and they only expect you to be as honest and accurate as you can. If you can't remember something, or you're not sure - just say that. But try your best not to "fill in the blanks" with your best recollect...
