    hand written signs

    I don't think a sign is going to stop someone from being nasty....just sayin'. I also don't think the signs are professional.
  2. UT Southwestern is also a partnership facility.
  3. I am graduating from this program next week! I definitely recommend it! It took 13 months for me to complete it....not sure if it varies depending on when you start. I started Feb, 2009. There are no classes during Christmas break. It's not too time-demanding, and for the most part, it is clear what is expected of you. There aren't any tests that have been designed to fail you out. Good luck to you all!

    CNOR flashcards?

    Has anyone purchased the CNOR flashcards available online, and if so, are they worth the money? Thx

    Will there always be an RN in the OR?

    AORN is big, and with AORN and ANA joining forces, I'm sure it will be a long time, if ever, that RNs are taken completely out. I guess you should always ask if there is a nurse in the OR if you have surgery. In Texas, there definitely is!

    MD Anderson New Grad Nurses Jan 2010

    What is the drive time for rush hour from Katy to MDA?
  8. I don't think the sites should be blocked, but the Aide should have been written up. We have access to FB on our computers, but I do not get on it at work. I don't want my job 'minding my business' by being able to see my stuff. (Yes, I do have coworkers on my FB, so I don't have anything to hide....)

    Masters degree for OR?

    This is my concern as well. I am almost finish with my RN-BSN bridge, and would like to continue on later down the road. (I think I better take a break!!) :)
  10. I think there is no right answer... Everyone is different, every case is different, every position is different, and every facility is different.
  11. Urology cases where the female is in lithotomy position get a vag prep.

    OR Nurse Salary DFW

    I started out as a brand new RN in the OR at $23/hr. Baylor started out around $21, if I remember correctly. My point is, it shouldn't go down too much, if any, from what you are currently making because the newbies aren't too far away from the $26. Best of luck to you! :)

    punishment for not having an H&P

    We should, and are suppose to make sure it is all in order, however, blocking the pay raise shouldn't be allowed, unless it is a constant problem with a particular nurse. Then obviously, that nurse is not doing the job correctly multiple times. However, the surgeons should be punished somehow as well. They know then need a consent and an H&P. There shouldn't be any problems getting one.

    Do not want to repeat science courses

    I think you'd remember enough for nursing school, if you made A's. You can always get a A&P book at a Half-Price books, or Ebay, etc and review, if needed. I'd look into if anyone still has a 10-year rule. I understand what others are saying here, but at the same time, it is added costs to retake them. I don't think you would be hurting yourself. I did retake A&P 1, but I remembered sooooo much, and it was over 10 years! Best of luck to you!

    Moving patient's in the OR

    We use a draw sheet wrapped around the roller at one facility, and a pillow case wrapped around the roller at the other facility. If the patient is really little/light, we will just use the drawsheet, if it is still clean.
