    Patient ratios.

    Just started working in ER and have found out that their staffing ratio is 9:1! Is this the norm? Thank you in advance for your advice.

    Transitioning from ICU/PCU to ED

    Need advice on how best to transition from a nurse with ICU and Progressive care unit experience to Emergency. What tips can you give me that would make the transition smooth? I want to be an asset to my colleagues not a hindrance. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    Peds travel to Fayetteville, NC

    CapeFear Valley is chaotic to say the least. One of the most disorganized hospitals I have ever worked. Fayetteville is called " Little Vietnam" because of the crime ate. I have been blessed to have never had a problem and majority of my co-workers have had no problems.The staff is very welcoming and helpful to Travel Nurses. You will meet many travel nurses there as we are about 50% of their staff. Keep a positive attitude,be friendly and keep repeating " I can do anything for three months."
