    New Grad peri-op RN

    Can anyone provide advice/tips on what to expect as a Peri-Op plastic Surgery RN. This will be in a private practice with 3 internal OR's. I am a recent grad. What are some common medications, skills, that I should study/ practice? Has anyone here started their career in OR?

    ENT perioperative RN vs L&D OR RN

    I'm considering a position as as an OR nurse for an ENT only minor surgeries (pre-op, intra-op and post-op) , how does this compare to L&D OR, as far as skills, common meds, stress levels, in your opinion?

    Med Spa RN

    I am seeking advice on how to get my foot in the door at a Med Spa. I lIve in Texas and I am an RN. What certifications do I need? What questions do I need to ask the hiring managers? Do I have to buy my own products? What is the average salary in TX? Pro''s and Con's? Any advice on malpractice insurance? Can anyone recommend any articles or literature pertaining to this topic. There is contradicting information I have come across in regards to schooling, training, titles, scope of practice, legalities. So in a nut shell, I am super confused, I know nothing on this topic, and I would like to know everything. I wish Nursing school touched on this topic a tad.

    RN in Alternative Health

    Hello all, I am a new grad (RN) and I wold like to practice in the area of alternative/ complementary /non-traditional medicine. In school we did not learn much about this area, or how to begin a career in this field. I would love to work for a clinic. How do I start? I have done research and have called clinics in my area but they only seem to hire Medical Assistants. I uncertain of what CE,certifications, or schooling is needed. What are some job titles for an RN in this field?

    Clinic on wheels RN

    Seeking info, comments, opinions, experiences, on a day in the life of a mobile clinic nurse. I have not found much info here or the net. It's not Mobile, Alabama nor is it a nurse that travels from home to home. It is a a clinic in a large /bus focusing on treatment and prevention of STI's. TIA

    From NICU to OB

    I think you would rock it! Just study a bit before hand, the common meds, emergency situations etc. Your biggest trouble would probably the charting aspect, but that would be a bit troublesome when transitioning from any specialty to another. I think you may even have an advantage. Sometimes us (L&D) nurses catch our own babies and many L&D nurses are terrified of babies. :) I think you will be great.

    New grad in L&D. Are these things normal?

    I'm not certain if it's a reaction to temporary conditions, Maybe it is, I hope not. It is the majority of the nurses sad to say. But the ones that are not like this are so amazing, and kind and patient.

    New grad in L&D. Are these things normal?

    That's exactly why I brought up the issue of a hard life, was expecting comments about how nurses become desensitized in a way. It's just odd that I see surgeons, physicians and other nurses that do not have this attitude. I wonder what makes some people turn out this way. Sure they may joke about, poo, blood and guts in private. But it almost seems evil, that they laugh and are slow to tend to a woman who is in fear, vomiting, trembling and begging to be helped.

    Why I'm leaving nursing

    Please reason my post entitled New Nuse in L&D is this normal. I am so scared of my future being like this. What are your future plans?
