    What do you hate seeing the MOST in the ER!?

    For me, its the mother bringing in her febrile infant, along with her three other rugrats all under the age of 3 at 2 am, all crying and screaming, with the infant lying on the stretcher and the mom is out in the hall, happily TEXTING!!!! Lady, if that baby falls, you had better start praying to sweet baby Jesus!!!

    Fustrated and looking for helpful tips!

    Great advice, in my opinion! I worked a year on a cardiac telemetry floor before switching to the ED. Showing desire, initiative, and knowledge is beneficial!!

    patient fell will it affect my registration

    This shouldn't keep you from being a nurse. Patients fall all the time, unfortunately, for various reasons. If they kept people from being a nurse for that, there wouldn't be many nurses!

    Failed to pass NCLEX the 3rd time....

    Don't give up! It WILL happen! I passed the first go, and I owe a lot of my success to the Hurst Review! It was all I used to study while working full time! If you haven't tried it, look into it! Have faith, and best of luck to you!! Hang in there!

    An all time low for a new night shifter

    I love working nights! I have been on nights for 3 years or so now. There are many perks! Less family member shenanigans, little to no upper management, the physicians are cooler, and even in the ER there is less stress overall. I work 12 hour shifts 3-4 days a week. I don't get a whole lot of sleep between my working days (long commute) and I lose my first day to sleep. But the rest of my days off, I sleep at night and stay up all day with my kids! We get tons of time together that way. The day I go back to work, I get up early morning, around 5 am, and stay up until around noon, then nap prior to work! I prefer nights, but like others are saying, its not for everyone. General stay on nightshift here in Missouri is about a year before most move to day shift. Hang in there!!
