    Why did you choose to be an ICU Nurse?

    Starting IVs

    I was wondering what area would be best to start IV. I was told to start at hand and work way up. Why is this? Also, what causes a vein to blow when inserting needle?

    Is Becoming A NP Worth It?

    I'm thinking about pursuing an NP education. Right now, I'm working on RN to BSN. What is the best way to NP? I've worked as a floor nurse for a few months. Can someone give me some advice?

    Leaving the nurse profession

    Would it be bad if I worked on my BSN fulltime and then reapplied to nursing positions after I graduate? I don't want to get stuck in SNFs:(
