    Saline Flushes - My Old As Dirt Question

    I always scan saline flushes. It's always in our E-MAR PRN and it will be counted/reflected in the medication intake and output... We kept our saline flushes in the Medroom.

    Likely moving to Ireland from US ... NMBI?

    Hi. We had somewhat the same scenario. When I applied in 2017 my last bedside experience was in 2012 but from 2015-2017 I was working as UM nurse in the Philippines and I used that experience on my NMBI application and they accepted it. Nursing experience doesn't have to be bedside experience. As long as your are practicing your profession be it in a clinic, company nurse, insurance nurse you are good to go. I got my registration in Ireland in 2017 however in 2018 I moved here in the US.

    Denied I-140

    The usual denial is not on the applicant's side. It is mostly on your employer side. Usual factors that affects your I-140 application is your employer's tax, prevailing wage etc...
  8. Came here on EB3 visa. Most employer file EB3 for nurses outside the US provided they have already passed the NCLEX. Its very rare for employer to sponsor H1b working visa. Those nurses under h1b are either employed in a Magnet hospitals wherein they require all their nurses to have BSN Degree. Requirement for EB3 is at least an Associate degree in Nursing. But for me Id rather be sponsored under EB3 than H1b coz EB3 is immigrant visa/permanent residency.

    Nursing progress notes cheat sheet

    I am a bit curious. What type of system are you using in your facility for documentation etc?
  10. I have work in acute rehab for about 7 months now. I am foreign educated RN and works full time on nights on a 13 bed capacity acute rehab. I love my unit. It's a slow pace unit for me actually. At the start of the shift I get to review all my patient charts, then prepare meds and do head to toe physical assessment. Midnight would be purely charting like bradens, FIMS, updating plan of cares, progress notes, passing PRN pain meds etc. I would also help my CNA answering call lights if I'm not busy. So far I love what I am doing except if we are low in census and we get to float to other units which makes me real anxious lol. As of now I am preparing to take the CRRN later this year.

    EB3 PHILIPPINES 2016 discussions

    EB3 applicant here from Philippines. PD January 2017. Just got my immigrant visa last month August. :-)
  14. Hi guys. I'd like to ask some few insights from nurses currently working in the US. I am soon to be deployed next month and will be assign in an acute inpatient rehab unit of the hospital. I just wanted to know the difference between ACU and TCU when it comes to workload, patient cases etc. How does it differ from SNF, LTAC and other facilities? I am a foreign RN and I have at least 3 yrs of MedSurg experience but that was long time ago like 6 yrs ago. My current experience is in a Nursing Home. Would it be very difficult for me to transition from a being a Nursing Home Nurse to Acute Inpatient Rehab Nurse? Thanks!

    NMBI Application Pack

    Hi hows everyone here hehehe
  16. Hi ohnodimple, thank you for your response. I did not undergo any course in Ireland. I just took the OSCE and after passing OSCE I got my Irish PIN. I was quite hesitant for the APHRA application. I have a valid academic IELTS which will expire on June 2018. Can I still make it if ever Im planning to apply by January next year? I am really hoping they could waive the bridging requirement.
