    Laser hair removal gone wrong

    First of all I feel really bad and second I really need the answer on how can I do better in future. I recently started at laser clinic hair removal. I have been trained for one week and told that for old clients settings on laser stay the same unless they are tanned or can’t tolerate pain. I had a client 4 days ago ( no tan, no pain during procedure, no redness)I did his neck and he came back today with tiny scabs at the hair follicles, and one red spot 1 cm diameter. Area was not painful, or blistered . It appears like the setting was wrong. I checked the chart and that was his regular setting at every visit. What can I do to get better at this, how can prevent situations like that. I’m not experienced in this field but I really enjoy the place. Also I’m thinking I didn’t get enough training or something was missing. thank you 🌷

    Would this be considered abandonment?

    Hi 👋🏼 nurses ! So I work in a poorly managed post acute/LTC we don’t even have DON at this moment (within the past 3 months it’s the third one that quit). I work 7-3pm only RN for 120+ pt’s and very often it happens that the next shift is either 2 hr late or non show. Last Sunday I worked by myself and of course nobody showed up for 3-11 pm shift, administrator made me stay even though I didn’t want to and ended up doing 16hr shift ( I have a baby at home to take care of). They paid me extra but I really don’t want their bonuses I just want leave on time. The most frustrating part of this is that nobody informs me about who is coming to the next shift and usually at 4 pm I start calling ppl and finding out that there’s no one to work. I’m so frustrated, my question is: If I clock out at 3 pm and go would that be considered an abandonment? Technically my shift is over at 3, I just feel bad for residents that’s why I stayed but I can’t be doing this over and over again.

    Would you do that? New grad dilemma

    That’s out of the picture in my case. Thank you all for your responses.

    Would you do that? New grad dilemma

    Hello Nurses ! I passed my nclex 2 weeks ago and started applying for jobs. It’s been only 2 weeks so I’m still full of hopes for good position BUT it’s hard to find hospital job for new grad ADN. I don’t have much experience only 6 months as LVN in assisted living. Anywho I found hospital position for LVN on med surg unit ( I have license ) and was thinking to work in that hospital and once they have opening for RN to move up ( usually it’s in Feb). I know this might sound a little crazy but since I have no hospital experience I thought this would help me a little. Another option is SNF or home health.I got call backs from these two places. What’s your opinion ? Do you think it’s stupid idea? Thank you 😊

  9. Hello ALL I am an LVN (working part time)and dreaming about getting my RN. I have 17 month old baby girl, she goes to a day care five days a week from 9am-3pm; I have no family where I live only my husband who works 12-14 h a day so most of the housework and baby care is on me. I found one private school in my area that offers prerequisites and full time RN program from 9am-5pm. I am not planing to work while in nursing school but I'm worried if this will work out. Mainly I'm concerned about study hours and my child (she will have to stay longer hours in her day care, she will be 2 years old when I start). How do you guys managed school and motherhood, do you have any tips? Thank you ❤️
