    Med errors being investigated

    I am not sure but I know I would fight not only to keep my license but to make sure nothing bad goes against me. Personally I would go to the Supervisor/Director...how many Nurses did you have to give meds to as oppose to what is legally allowed. Keep in mind this can also go against the Nursing Home if you had "X" number of patients to give meds too.

    Med errors being investigated

    10 Med Errors in 4hrs? I can understand one or two but wow...You said you had computer problems did you contact the supervisor once you realize the computer was not functioning well? If you did let the supervisor know, you can include that in your email. Are you represented by the Union? Thankfully, there was no harm to the patient and no narcotics were involved. That said though, I still think they should have given you a verbal warning followed by a written one before reporting you to the Nursing board.

    LPN or RN

    Totally agree with Neo. Take the ADN route it will take 2yrs, plus once you pass the boards and get a job you will be paid as an RN. You can always do the BSN online. I did my ADN, passed boards 6 weeks after graduating. Even before I passed the boards I applied to Chamberlain online, as soon as I passed I was set to go. Took me 9 months to complete. During that time I worked as an RN. Big difference in salary so go for it.
  4. I am in the initial state of looking into moving to the Stamford Area. I work at a Hospital in the Bronx (Pediatrics/NICU). I also work Per diem in Manhattan which I would give up once I move. My question is what is the Per Diem rate in around the Stamford area? I plan on keeping my job in the Bronx so I will be driving. What areas are nice to live? Possibly a Town house. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Nursing home salary

    It depends on where you work. Worked in Longbeach Long Island and was paid $38.38 an hr but they had no unions for Nurses. Worked at Parker Jewish in New Hyde Park and was paid $40.64 per hr...that's for BSN. Union is NYSNA

    Interview and pharmacology exam at Bronx Lebanon

    Interview went very well. The pharm exam was not that bad. I passed. First I interviewed with the recruiter then the nurse manager. I interviewed for a peds position. The manager took me on the unit. Very relaxed and very pleasant. Everyone was really nice. They told me the salary but also said HR makes the final offer in terms of salary. HR will let me know what documents to bring.
  13. I went to an open house at Bronx Lebanon on July 13th. I got a call and email for an interview and pharm exam scheduled to tomorrow August 1st. Anyone else heard from them? I was also wondering do they test everyone they interview? I am brushing up on dosage and a few main meds like digoxin, insulin, ER meds HTN. Any ideas?

    Phone interview with mount sinai...

    I got an email today to schedule a phone interview for a cardiac position at Mount Sinai. It says it will last about 15 to 20 minutes and some brief questions will be asked. And ideas about the type of questions asked in these interviews? I applied online.
