I can't wait until I can say, "I'm a nurse, not a doctor."

  1. Partial bedbath/procedure

    I like one wash cloth that starts with the face, goes to hands, and then underarms. Another one for genitalia, and another one that does the rear. In the past I have placed a chux pad on the bed/table and dropped the dirty washcloths there after I us...
  2. CNA's Applying heat

    Depends. Where I work we have no such thing as OTC treatments or meds, everything must be by doctor's order or be covered by a protocol that's been reviewed by my supervisor. It's a company policy - regardless of the legality, I'd probably lose my jo...
  3. I was about to say this. I could tell you, roughly, how nurse delegation works in Oregon that allows me to work as a caregiver and perform certain tasks for my clients - like giving insulin, epi-pen, etc. etc. - but you don't live in Oregon and the a...
  4. Why cant i feel content? Career advice please!

    I feel your pain. I'm at a job I don't particularly care for right now because I need the health insurance. It sucks to feel stuck some place you don't like. My advice would be to stick it out *if* you can and transfer, because that sounds like a sol...
  5. FMU?

    Could be Fetal Medicine Unit? Just guessing from a quick Google search.
  6. Pregnant ER nurse

    I had an instructor once who was filmed by a local news crew performing CPR on top of a gurney coming out of a helicopter into the hospital while 8 months pregnant with twins. I wouldn't advise such a thing, but I think it just goes to show that if y...
  7. Roll call *****oregon folks

    Not a LPN or RN, but I looked into the ITT program. It seemed like they were way more interested in getting my money than giving me information so I could make a decision.
  8. Passed my CNA exam!

    Good job! You earned it! :yeah::balloons::clpty:
  9. If I can't sleep NOBODY CAN!

    I work one 12 a week, which gets me 3 days off a week. It's just about perfection, haha!
  10. Do part-time hours typically follow a regular pattern?

    Depends on your employer, although a totally sporadic job would probably be described as "on call" rather than "part time"
  11. Trying to avoid being disabled, career advice.

    I can't believe this doesn't fall under the Americans with Disabilities Act! Very sad that they don't see the value of your knowledge and experience. To that end, is there a nursing school near you that could use a skilled classroom instructor?
  12. Should a CNA make more than a PCA?

    depends on the type of facility and what the delegation laws of that state are. in my state, aides pass meds in assisted living after receiving on-site med training. after working as a med aide for six months you're eligible to take a cma class and b...
  13. Home health Vs. LTC/Hospitals...

    Uhh, I'd say she's dead wrong. Home health can be very high level of acuity. Hospital patients can be very stable. It depends on the patient, your experience, and where you're working in the facility. LTC can be so varied because theres' such a varie...
  14. What Would You Do?

    You only get one body, why abuse it needlessly? That hospice job is just a-callin' your name.
  15. If I can't sleep NOBODY CAN!

    There's a reason I like swing shift - I don't have to get up early, and I don't have to go to bed early. If we went to a 12 hour schedule at work, I'd probably start a riot.
