  1. Veteran and Military Nurses

    I think he was there from 91-92ish? He worked at the hospital, he was sent to lackland b/c I think either the hosptal or base was closing? I got to spend some time at Spangdalem AB with the ANG-Germany is a very beautiful country! So, lucky you.........
  2. Veteran and Military Nurses

    My husband was stationed at Weisbaden before his assignment to Lackland-where we met. What a small world. :) Julie

    I was a med tech in the USAF for 4 years at Wilford Hall Medical Center at Lackland AFB, Tx for 4 years, then I did 3 years in the NC Air National Guard while I used my GI Bill to get my BSN. Now I work as a staff nurse and have no ties to the milita...
  4. Working while Pregnant??

    I have a 14 month old little boy. I worked until the day before I was induced b/c he was late. Everyone is different, I had no major problems-just the usual (Nausea the first trimester and tired the last). I work as a staff nurse on an inpatient onco...

  10. What would you do???

    At my last job they gave me all my PTO's in a lump sum "bonus" check when I left.
  11. Tracking RN's...why not Docs too???

    We use this system at my hospital and I like it. If your doing your job as you should, you have nothing to worry about. It cut's down on the nurse being called into rooms for nurse aid type tasks and helps prioritize care. For example, I might be in ...
  12. What errors have you caught? (Docs, Pharmacy, etc.)
