  1. let go during orientation, needs advice?

    Before I was an RN I left a job where I was established and respected at a small company for a fortune 5 company. Biggest lesson I learned there is a big name is just a name. Stay where they treat you with dignity.

  12. Do you like working in neuro?

    Ditto the above poster. Neuro can get very heavy. My last shift one of my main priorities was transferring out a chfer who was there due to ams. I had enough people screaming that were truly neuro patients to deal with a sundowning sick heart.
  13. Starting an IV with Lidocaine or Not?
