  1. Intermediate/Tele floor to PACU

    Hello. I’ve been a nurse for 7 years. I’ve worked on an Intermediate Telemetry floor for 4.5 years and I’m currently ready for a change. My heart aches to work in ICU. The more lines, tubes, drains my patient has the more challenged and excited I fee...
  2. My answer is yes. But...I went back to school when I was 31, married and had two kids. It has not been easy! If I could do it again I would start nursing school right out of high school, get some floor experience for about 10 years and then get in to...
  3. Administering Fentanyl

    I have worked on a busy surgical floor and have mostly administered it IV. It is mostly used for breakthrough surgical pain. I have also seen it used in a PCA. Now that I work on a med/tele floor where I dont give pain meds that often for acute pai...

    I'm starting 5-1 as well. Has anyone started orientation yet?
  5. Exclusive pumping/hospital RNs that pump

    So glad I found this post! I'm going back to work tomorrow after having 12 weeks off for maternity leave. I work on a busy med surg floor and I am most nervous about finding the time to pump!! I have a hard time stepping away from my patients as it i...
  6. Finally signing RN at the end of my signature :-)

    What an amazing feeling for you! I just passed NCLEX-RN last week and I cannot wait until I have the opportunity to sign those two letters behind my name! Congrats!
  7. New Grad with Peer Interview butterflies...

    Thanks so much for the pointers. I had my interview today and WOW! It was tough! It consisted of two charge nurses and a nurse from the MedSurg floor. The interview took about an hour and fifteen minutes and the questions were pretty tough i thou...
  8. FB page for your particular class

    My LPN class and my RN classes both had Facebook pages. We all found it really helpful. Whether it was a "grades are up", "hey what page was that on", or just inspirational posts I think it helped us all to support each other through school. I wou...
  9. Hi everyone. I have been a member on here for a while and have all nurses to be very helpful and informative. I don't post alot but I have greatly enjoyed reading and learning from my fellow nurses. I just found out that I PASSED the NCLEX-RN la...
  10. RN bridge program starts in 2 weeks!

    Congrats! I graduate in two months from a bridge program. It wasn't as intense for me as PN school was but not easy either! It's really about changing your way of thinking and how to intervene in situations. Instead of "reporting to the RN" you have ...
  11. What next? (After my ADN)

    Thanks for your help Blue4me2. I will definitely check that out!
  12. What next? (After my ADN)

    Hello fellow nurses! I am graduating in May '13 with my ADN and I'm starting to do some research on what to do next. I know that I want to immediately start a part time BSN program after I pass NCLEX and land a job. I have been trying to do some r...
  13. how long did you wait to go from LPN to RN?

    Yes it is a private school. They do require us to take Microbiology with lab in our last semester. We are also getting around 19 credit hours added to our transcript from PN school for classes like Nutrition, Growth and Develpment and A&P.
  14. Brushing up for clinicals

    I agree with the previous poster about brushing up on IV skills. I was lucky enough to go to a PN school that came with IV certification. In my bridge program some of us are IV certified and some of are not. They did not give the ones who are not ...
  15. how long did you wait to go from LPN to RN?
