  1. Hi everyone! For those that have already taken or will be taking the AACN Nursing Informatics Certification Exam, how did you study? I am in need of more practice questions and wondering if anyone knew of any out there that were really good to help. I have heard of the Pearl Review but don't think there are any questions in there for me to prep with. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you very much in advance. Stay Strong.

    picking up an extra shift

    Hello! I am wondering how some of you dealt with a situation like this: You have a full time job, you want to pick up a couple of shifts elsewhere in the same system that will not affect your full time job. The only effect I see is that you won't be able to do OT on your normal floor, which is super hard to come by anyway. Do you tell your manager, just in case he/she finds out? I wouldn't want him/her to think that I don't care for my unit. What do you do? I don't feel it should be a problem BUT would love to hear your stories/experiences/advice... Happy Nurses Week you wonderful people!

    CT scan job advice

    Hello nurses, not sure if this is the right place to put this thread BUT I am in need of advice again!!! Just wondering if anyone had any experience working as an RN in CT scan, how it is and would you recommend it... I have a few years in bedside nursing and hear great things about CT scan but would love more info from people actually in the field. They say it is less stressful than bedside, that all I would need to do is put in peripheral IVs, check labs and thats it... Thanks!

    work and school at the same time...

    Thanks so much for the advice !! all the replies made me feel so much better about my decision... I HAVE to continue full time night shift for money/life. School will have to be part time at this point in my life... Didn't know there were so many people doing the same/did the same... and have succeeded, makes me feel that much more better! =] =] =] KEEP IT COMING!

    Nurses have told me that working nights IS possible with part time school. It is just a little bit harder.... but I want to hear from more nurses...

    work and school at the same time...

    Good Morning all nurses! I am a full time working nurse and just recently got into a masters of informatics program part time. I work night shift. I have no desire to go to day shift, there is less money and I was always a night owl my life. I am just very comfortable working nights. I would rather be comfortable working while I take care of my schooling. My question for you all is if there are any nurses that have done full time working nights and part time school? How was it? Some coworkers have been telling me to go to day shift. Any advice is appreciated! Thanks!
  11. Hi All Nurses! Hope everyone had a good Labor Day! and wasn't working like me =] Does anyone know of any nursing informatics masters degree programs in New York City??

    CEs for CCRN

    Just passed my CCRN and I know that there are 3 years before renewal and that I have to obtain 100 (????) CEs. This is my very first certification =] soooo really new here, wondering how people get their CEs and are they expensive?? I understand ACLS, BCLS can be counted too.... Thank you! Any advice is appreciated!

    nursing conferences

    ALLNURSES! Been hearing all these stories of nurses going to cool places for conferences and was wondering how the process goes... I know I will need to apply to my hospital somehow BUT where do people get information of upcoming nursing conferences??? Is there some website where there are different companies that do this for nurses??? I hear of NTI, magnet... conferences... If there is a website, can anyone link it? I googled some but they DO NOT seem legit. Also, where have you been and how was it?? Thanks!
