  1. I am not sure if anyone has come across this, but I signed a two year contract and received a 15K sign-on bonus. When I applied and got the job it was under a different company. About 5 months into the job, another company took over the old company. ...

    PCCN Tips?

    I liked her books. The study guide was a fast and easy read. It was my main study book and passed the test with a score of 86. I read each chapter multiple times. I made up practice quizzes for each chapter. Wrote down the most important facts. Drew ...

    Cartersville Medical Center

    Can anyone tell me about this facility? Pay? Atmosphere? Is it hard to get hired here? Interview process? Orientation for new hires. Anything! How about some of the surrounding hospitals? Also looking into Wellstar at Hiram or Marietta, Tanner.

    PCCN Tips?

    I started studying at the end of August. I probably studied about 3 hours per week for 2 months. I sort of wish I scheduled my test sooner because on month three I have not been studying much at all. Part of it is because I picked up extra shifts at ...

    bedside report

    I don't mind doing bedside report. It seems like the patients like to interact with the nurses during this time. And if there is a question about something coming in, you can ask the off going nurse. As a previous poster mentioned, I do dislike givin...

    omg I forgot to give report!

    I forgot to give report before, too. I didn't get too far before I remembered and called the nurse to give report via the telephone. Luckily she was an easy going nurse! On the flipside, I had a nurse forget to give me report before. I tried to call ...

    omg I forgot to give report!

    I once forgot to return a PO Ativan that a patient changed her mind about to the pyxis. I went home and discovered that it was still in there! I freaked out and went straight back to the hospital (luckily only 5 mins away.) The nurses all the day shi...

    Brand new nurse already OVERWHELMED and panicking

    I moved away for my first nursing job -- across the country. So, I know how lonely and stressful it can be. I began an exercise routine when I first started out my nursing job. I swam, walked, went to the gym. Not only did I lose weight and feel more...
