  1. How do you move past a mistake?

    Hello nurses, I made a mistake recently and I'm taking it pretty hard :-( It was a big mistake, but luckily, no-one was hurt and the outcome was just fine. Not a med error, but I missed a step in an important process. It was accidental and...

    Hello neuro nurses, I believe the NIH certification used to be free. Is that still the case? I am trying to re-up my NIH certification (it is expired) but cannot find a link to do so. Could any of you point me in the right direction? Thank you!

  10. ER nurse or OR nurse?

    Go with your gut!!! Go OR ? You know what to do, and you know what you want. Forget this ER business. You can DEFINITELY still be an FNP and work in the OR. I am an ER RN, and it can be so chaotic. I would love to do something more analytical - work...
