Not sure how helpful this will be, but the PCC stands for patient care coordinator. Not sure what the difference between RN and RN-PCC is though. I remember my preceptor over at OSU East having patient care coordinator on his ID badge, but I didn't n...
I have a Citizen Eco-Drive - it uses natural light to charge the battery so you don't have to worry about it dying, especially mid-shift. This is the one that I bought as a birthday present: Amazon.com: Citizen Women's FB1350-58A Chronograph Analog D...
Our program requires it for FNP, PNP, and maybe adult primary. We have a great supplier that will be on campus next week with them and perks for buying them in person (on top of the $100 less they are already compared with Amazon and others).
I got a great deal directly from the publisher (30% off & free shipping) for a book that's all of 2 weeks old because it wasn't available in time through Amazon or the school bookstore for the start of the semester. Definitely keeping an eye on t...
Can you elaborate on how OSUs Grad Entry students are 'scary' - is it unsafe scary or mean teacher scary? Maybe the current cohorts (one is finishing pre-licensure and the other has just begun clinicals) are better than previous ones?
I believe in #16 and #19. #16 is why I'm focusing on the pediatric patient population (hopefully) and #19 because any of my classmates can come and ask me, "is 1+1 still 2?" because some days you need that reassurance and not ridicule.

For me, having the undergrad version of my Pathophys book was helpful for topics I struggled with. I also got lucky and had the same authors (Huether and McCance) for both books. Lots of overlap, but glad I had the undergrad version.

This is bringing me back to a conversation I had with the guys that run a well respected piercing shop about having in-services for nurses and docs to learn how to remove body jewelry appropriately. Now the hamster in my mind has awaken (at 1am nonet...
I just began my OB rotation and during our floor orientation the PPH cart was pointed out to us. It was just that - a cart in the hallway. We haven't delved into post partum yet, but once I learn what's inside I'll pass it on.
I would call DORA directly. There is contact info on their site - not sure exactly where for nursing, but remember getting it for another health profession. This way you are getting your info directly from the source.
I had similar assignments earlier this semester and was allowed to use ethical dilemmas I was faced with outside of nursing and just had to connect it back either from the way I handled the situation or what I learned from it.
