    Questions about putting in an epidural?

    I now work on a surgical oncology floor and often patients come to the unit with a PCEA in place. Just curious about how epidurals work and how they're put in along with potential complications that may arise. Thanks!

    "Maintenance dose" math question.

    I am stumped on this question because my co-worker got a different answer than I did and she is convinced her answer is right. Question: A patient admitted today with seizure disorder is to receive Dilantin 20mg/kg/day in three equally divided doses...

    Two people I know who got accepted to hospital "A" last year received their offer email the same day. This is making me very weary. When I told one of them about what the recruiter said to me about "the offer having to pass through the CEO before he ...

    I'm 25. Nursing is my 2nd degree/career. The nurse manager told me I wasn't interviewing for her floor and that I was interviewing for the "whole hospital." Regardless I might have ended up on her floor anyway so you do prove a point because I defini...

    As crazy as it sounds I am still so upset about the other interview (at the hospital I currently work at.) It is a cardiac hospital and I really love working there. That hospital is the reason I went into nursing (long story that I wont get into). M...

    Did I mess up my second interview??? (kinda long...)

    I feel like todays interview went really well! I interviewed with the nurse manager of the med-surge unit and she was MUCH friendlier than the other manager who interviewed me at the hospital I work at. The questions she asked were very straight forw...
