  1. Stepdown/PCU or ICU?

    Hello everyone, I have about 3 years experience in Med Surg ICU stepdown nursing and most recently 2 years nursing in ICU. I have both my PCCN and CCRN. However, I would say that the hospital I work in now seems more like a stepdown ICU with the...
  2. Does anyone know if you need fingerprints for the background check for Aya? What have your experiences been for other travel agencies as well? I am planning only to work in my licensed states or other compact states. Not interested in obtaining licen...
  3. 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. ...
  4. I've always wanted to do psych or post-partum in school. My first job ended up being med-surg. I hated med-surg as a student but was just happy to get a job after numerous applications. I ended up liking it better than I did in school. Caring for 5-...
  5. 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 ...
  6. 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.
  7. Passed the PCCN 8/30/2020

    I recently just passed my PCCN. My main study book was Nicole Kupchick Ace the PCCN study guide. I read all the chapters multiple times for about 3 months. Pages were literally falling out of the book. I did supplement a little bit with a binder my n...
  8. 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 ...
  9. 11 pm to 7 am shifts

    Did you have to do lab draws?
  10. 11 pm to 7 am shifts

    Does anyone work psych 11 pm to 7 am shift? I used to work psych 8 pm to 8am a few years back. I was just curious as to what you were responsibe during this time? Do you do the morning med pass or is that for the day shift? I just applied for a pt ni...
  11. Midwestern State University PMHNP program

    I got accepted! Still hoping someone replies to this post who went through the program.
  12. 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...
  13. I don't consider me an old fashioned woman, but I'd probably prefer a female nurse to do certain procedures on me over a man. Would I refuse care from a male nurse? No. But I am just shy by nature and would feel slightly more at ease with a woman. It...
  14. Is anyone in this program or graduated from this program? I am interesting in learning more about your experience. Thank you.
  15. 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 ...
