  1. Temperature methods in preterm babies

    Hello all, I am an ER nurse, but I am posting this here because I would rather get the scoop right from the true experts. The other day I had a preterm neonate who was born at 34 weeks gestation and was now 2 weeks old come into the ER. I remember be...
  2. Which classes are easy or difficult for ADN to BSN at UTA?

    I dropped the Algebra and US History courses. Algebra's online instruction was terrible. They would give an example of something new and show you steps A and C and assume you knew B. I am a "see one do one teach one" person, and if I can't see it, th...
  3. Hello all! My family and I are relocating to the Lancaster/Hershey area at the end of this (2014) school year, and I am wondering if anyone can give me advice or information on working conditions and/or salaries for hospitals within a 30-45 minute d...
  4. No matter what side of the LPN/RN or NP/MD argument you are on, there are two simple facts that make the issues different. Upon GRADUATION: 1. An entry-level LPN is (more or less) taught how to DO things. An entry-level RN is taught in depth WHY t...
  5. Wow - 10 years and this post still thrives! If I may add to ridiculous visits: C/O: Toe fungus. Time of Day: 04:15. NOT. KIDDING.
  6. Care As a Patient from New Grads

    I graduated in May and currently work in an ER/Trauma Center where a patient recently asked - from what seemed out of nowhere - if I was a new grad. I was instantly mortified! I thought I'd done something wrong, made a silly error, etc., despite the ...
  7. Administering Narcan: Fast or Slow?

    I'm new to the ER and had to give my first dose of Narcan last night. The nurse that was orienting me told me to push it very slowly to keep the pt from vomiting, so I pushed 1mL over about 3 minutes. As I was almost done, another nurse came into the...
  8. Penn State Hershey nurse residency

    babybluelife, I got the same email. Being an ADN, I really didn't think I would get it anyway, but was a little hopeful. Everything happens for a reason! We had planned to move to Florida if I didn't make it as Hershey's program was the only thing ke...
  9. Penn State Hershey nurse residency

    haha babybluelife - I actually responded to that email and asked to put SICU for my 2nd choice (they offered it for 1st or 2nd only, and I had it as my 3rd). Thank goodness! I didn't want to look ignorant by having a position with no openings. I STIL...
  10. Penn State Hershey nurse residency

    babybluelife, my fingers are crossed as well! On the questionnaire I chose SICU, but when I recently went back to FAQ site, it showed that the number of interns being accepted was "0" I could SWEAR it was 3 before! Got my confirmation today that the...
  11. Penn State Hershey nurse residency

    Glad this thread was started :) I also applied. I'm working on my clinical narrative, which is how I found this post. Never did one before so I'm struggling! But on the questionnaire I chose ER, HVICU, and SICU. I would say "anything in critical car...
