  1. New grad NP in pain management, bad idea?

    Thank you for the words of advice! So far I’ve survive nearly 2 weeks on my own. It’s been stressful and hard. I see 13 patients a day for now and it’s busy. I feel like I’m learning from the ground up. But the support is there. I’ve been reading all...
  2. New grad NP in pain management, bad idea?

    How did you know exactly what to say!! thank you ?? I’ve been so stressed about working in pain management and then when I lost the rest of my orientation weeks I just panicked. It’s hard to be new... and even harder when it’s been 2 years.....
  3. OK so to make a long story short... I’m a new grad, sort of, I graduated 2 years ago and I am finally starting my first NP job. (I was sick for a year and couldn’t work, postpartum depression is real people ?). So I have a dual degree FNP/AG...
  4. Where are all the Acute care jobs??

    I haven’t tried sound or Apogee yet. I am really trying to avoid that brutal 7 on 7 off schedule. Been there done that as a bedside ICU nurse and it about killed me. I think I’d rather do family med then that schedule again! I’ll start searching all...
  5. I just graduated with a dual AGACNP/FNP a few months ago and job hunting has been zero fun!! I did not enjoy family med and want to avoid that area of medicine completely but it seems like those are the only jobs available!! Everywhere that is acute ...

  7. New job not what i was expecting

    I am literally in this same exact boat. Except I've been at the new job for about 6 months now. And I am bored out of my mind!! Ive only ever worked in level 1 trauma/surgical ICU's and I recently took a job in a large level 1 burn ICU. And I hate i...
  8. From SICU to BICU and I'm so bored!

    0Because of many reasons I moved to an entirely new city and took up a new job. I have over 4 years of surgical trauma ICU experience in a large level 1 facility that was a very fast paced ICU with really sick busy patients. We did everything from t...
  9. Most intense ICU you've travel to?

    Hey travel nurses! I was just wondering what your favorite ICU you've traveled to is?? what's the most intense, interesting, sickest, most challenging, assignment you've ever taken?? In a good way! Ive recently started in a new ICU and I'm bored out...
  10. From SICU to BICU and I'm so bored!

    I have taken care of an 80% burn. Do you work days or nights? That makes a big difference. I work nights and we don't do burn care at night. So it's just turn and base and pain meds. They become chronic sick stable pts pretty quickly. Although I enjo...
  11. Both adult and peds?

    I've only ever worked in large level 1 Truama ICU's and both jobs the ICU's have both adult and peds. They are out there if you look for them.

  13. Do any of the hospital in WA actually use ACNPs in their ICU's? Thinking of moving to WA and planning on getting my ACNP within the next 2 years. I want to end up in an ICU as an NP.
