    Troy Student--Pensacola Area

    I'm a Troy University FNP student in the Pensacola-Milton-Gulf Breeze area and currently doing my first preceptorship at a military clinic. It's going very well and I'm really enjoying it. My preceptor is amazing; she has a natural knack for teaching. I'm looking for 2 preceptors for this summer, Peds (90 hrs) and Women's Health (45 hrs). I'm an optimistic, humble, eager-to-learn, compassionate person and I would be truly grateful to anyone that is willing to take me under their wing-so to speak. If you enjoy having students and are near Pensacola-Milton-Gulf Breeze, feel free to message me. I don't believe in paying preceptor, but I do believe in paying it forward. Once I am established, I will be happy to serve as a preceptor for FNP students.

    Ramifications of leaving midcontract

    EWRN, How did things turn out for you? Did you quit? That place sounds horrendous. I hope you name names on the hospitals to avoid forum.

    Pensacola Area Staffing Ratios

    In MedSurg, for example, the ratio is 1:5-6 (regardless of acuity) at Sacred Heart. From job postings for Santa Rosa, in Milton, I seen 1: 5-7. What about Baptist and West Florida??? I'm from Washington, and we were staffed 1:4-5. The staffing down here is ridiculous!

    Sad story of an ex-new grad nurse

    Grooming can be stressful, but nearly as stressful as nursing imo. I owned my own mobile grooming businesses before. I really enjoyed it for the most part. I didn't enjoy always being covered in a fine coat of dog fur though. Iol. You must be feeling really discouraged right now. Most of us go in to nursing to make a difference, because we genuinely care. It is terribly sad that we get backed into a corner, having to provide unsafe care or quit. Fortunately, you are brand new. You can look for something different, like flu shot clinics or home health care. You can pretend as though the first nightmare never happened. Good luck.

    Stupid things that nurses say

    When getting a blood glucose, I used to always say "pick a finger, any finger, but the middle finger." I once said that to a pt without a middle finger! Luckily, he thought it was funny. Also, a pt complained once to administration about nurses calling her a cow. It turns out they were talking about the Computer On Wheels, not the pt!

    Stupid things that nurses say

    That was good! I actually laughed out loud. Tears and all. Ironically, I've done that to a pt once. Felt awful.

    Any oncology NP here to share your experience?

    Bump. I'm curious about this as well. I'm an RN working on an inpatient Oncology unit. I am applying to FNP programs and have been wondering about working as an Oncology NP.

    indiana state fnp online

    No. I'm in Florida currently, but I'm from Indiana. Indiana just happens to have several quality, affordable options, so I'm looking there instead of locally Good luck.

    why do many MAs and CNAs call themselves nurses?

    A girl that I worked with was a no call, no show. A few days later she showed up. Her excuse for not coming? A tornado pushed her car off the road and she need stitches on her scalp. I sympathized and tried to look at her scalp. I don't know why she wouldn't let me see!!!
