    PALS

    My PALS instructor taught us everything we needed to know. Even if he didn't, I can't imagine studying for a month. March 10 should be fine, and I'd probably suggest taking it as soon as possible. I know nurses that didn't have it be for orientation was over which kept them from a lot of patients. Good luck!

    Interview at Duke

    Thanks! I'm loving the area so far. Right now I'm living in Carrboro but will be moving to Durham soon. I was given time to change between my shadow and interview, so you may want to ask. Mine was set up as an open house so maybe that's why it was different?

    Interview at Duke

    Good luck on your interviews! I just moved down here from Michigan for a job at Durham regional hospital. I haven't started yet, but the relocation for out of state is $3000. You can either have it paid to you (taxed) or paid to a moving co (not taxed) so far I love it down here :) let me know if you have any questions!

    Nurese Externships Can Hurt your Nursing Career!

    My externship absolutely got me my current position-in a different health system. I just had to explain why that externship prepared my to become a RN. Without it, I don't think I would have even been remotely considered for this position.

    Capstone not what requested

    I can't guarantee that it won't hinder you, but I thought I'd share with you my experience. I actually never worked in an ER (externship in the surgical ICU and capstone in neonatal ICU) and was hired into an ER before graduation :)

    Am I barking up the wrong tree?

    There are so many different aspects to nursing, that I'm sure you'll find your nitch! I work as a CNA currently (graduate this week from nursing school!) and even though I appreciate the experience, I know it's not where I want to end up. Sometimes you have to figure out both what you want and what you don't!

    Caring For A Family Suffering A Fetal Demise

    I am currently a nursing student on a labor and delivery floor and had my first loss patient the other day--a loss at 14 weeks. Reading this brings her face back into my memory and tears down my face--Thank you
