    Passed the CNOR exam

    CONGRATULATIONS to you!!!!! I passed the CNOR exam about 3 weeks ago and I found it to be much more intimidating than NCLEX!! It was a tough test. The questions questions were structured much differently than I expected. Not just knowing what a condition is, but knowing how you would expect to treat the condition. I am so thankful this experience is over!!!!

    facebook "stalking" as a nurse?

    I have never worried about it because my entire name and address are listed on the Dept of Nursing website. It would not be hard to find any nurse that holds a license.

    Nursing Entrance Essay (Plz Read)

    I would delete the last paragraph. It sounds critical and judgemental. You should talk about you and want your ambitions are. Use wording that projects that you are going to build on the skills and knowledge you already have because you are a CNA. I would spell out CNA and not use abbreviations. Also, watch out for complete sentences and proper sentence structure. Good luck!!!!
  7. Oh my! I hope I am never in the situation. I think you did the right thing.

    Am I the only new nurse who doesn't hate my job?

    I LOVE my job!!:redbeathe Absolutely, love it! :heartbeatI have been a nurse a year on June 20th and in the Operating Room for a year this week. The year has just zoomed by, too. I love my co-workers and the type of nursing that I am doing. :up:One patient at a time and no Spectra-link phone glued to my butt!!!!! It is amazing how much confidence I have gained in such a short time.

    How many SATA ?'s

    I got over 20 SATA! I got 2 questions about the same drug. One was patient teaching and one was expected side effects. I only got ONE med calc and it had multiple conversions in it. CRAZY!

    The Operating Room

    What a great post! I have been an OR nurse for a little over 8 months and my five year- old will have surgery next week. I totally understand the emotions. It is very overwhelming when you know what "could" happen. btw- I LOVE being in the Operating Room!

    Prepping a TAH?

    We use two preps in the OR where I work. We usually give the foley to the scrub person and they test the balloon and lube it up. Then, we prep the perineum with one prep, insert foley and use another prep tray for the abdomen.

    New Grad OR Nurse Position

    I would make sure that the OR is your passion before considering it. It is A LOT of information to learn. It is a different type of nursing. I would talk to as many nurses as you can that have had OR experience or are currently working in the OR. You MOST definitely use assessment, skills and time management skills. They are just not the same as "floor nursing". The focus is different. I am a new grad and I have been working in the OR for 3 months. I come off orientation next week. I have learned more than I ever thought possible, in such a short time. Good luck with your journey!!!!!
