    L&D RN w/ Herpes - Embarrassed

    Thank you all for taking the time out to reply and make me feel a bit better :) It's so true that people who make fun of it obviously do not have all the facts and are just ignorant to it. Ugghhhh

    L&D RN w/ Herpes - Embarrassed

    Thank you so much quazar...I really needed to hear that!! I have to stop dwelling on it, as I am not even pregnant yet and you're right..it is my business. I will figure it out when the time comes. Thank you!

    L&D RN w/ Herpes - Embarrassed

    I hate the stigma attached to HSV I contracted HSV2 about 8 years ago from an ex. I had the intial major outbreak and that has been it, thankfully. I have been in nursing for 9 years but just landed my dream job as an L&D nurse. Hubby and I plan to start having littles next year so my anxieties are already full blown thinking about my coworkers learning I have "the herp". Of course I am worried about my baby's health as well but I will be on Valtrex 3rd trimester and already had my intial outbreak which "helps". And this is all God willing I get pregnant.. :) Is anyone else in my shoes and have any advice??! It will be very costly to deliver somewhere else. I will be discussing this further with my new OB doc who delivers where I work but I'm probably **** outta luck unless I go elsewhere because it will obviously be in my chart. Thanks you in advance for any support, advice, etc.

    Am I nuts for wanting to try nights?

    I've been an LPN for 3 years in oral surgery and am a recent RN grad, I want to work nights for some reason. Am I crazy?! I like geriatrics. I hear nights is better pay, less drama (management, etc), more jobs offered on nights. There are so many different opinions, some hate it and some love. It's one of those things where I just have to do it to see I guess. Any input would be great, thanks!

    need advice PLEASE!!

    Would I be nuts to leave a day shift, no holidays/weekends for $25/hr at an oral and maxillofacial surgeons office job?? I'm a recent RN grad, I've been there 3 yrs already as an LPN for $17.50/hr and he offered me to stay becuz he wants an RN on board. The cons are that its 1-1.5 hour drive one way for me now and I feel I'm not getting to expand my "nursing horizons" there. I guess I'm wondering, is the grass greener on the other side?? If I looked for something else, I'm sure it would b nights since I'm a new RN..

    CPNE subQ Question

    Just started viewing Robs DVDs..for the subQ lab sim, he shows the injection (into the potato) at 45 degree angle for insulin. I was always taught insulin and heparin are 90 degrees. I'm confused already! Help! I know I MUST study the EC way for the exam, but I just want to double check w/ someone who definitely knows, thanks!

    FCCA/CPNE

    It's ludwig/ackley mosbys guide to nsg diagnoses 3rd edition. Pretty sure 2nd or 3rd are only versions u can use for cpne and no writing can be in them!
