    No I haven't... I sent an e-mail yesterday. I was hoping that too, but I made a forum for the fellowship program and someone responded yesterday they interviewed and got a job offer

    @MurseRN1996 I e-mailed someone but I'm not sure it's the right person. The only contact email I could find among the emails I got was for Anne. Is that the same for you?

    @Michellestudentnurse where on the website did you find the recruiter email? I went to the site where you do the on demand interview but still couldn’t find it. I’m trying to reach out to the recruiter in St.Joseph of Orange.

    @grpyrRN Good luck! When you were choosing your interview, did they have dates listed to choose from through mid November as well? Haven't heard anything back yet and I'm wondering if all the interviews have already been booked 😕
  6. Has anyone else applied to the fellowship program for experienced RNs at Providence St. Joseph? I know there's a thread for the TIP program for new grads, but wanted to start one for the fellowship program.

    Has anyone who applied for the fellowship program heard back for interviews from Orange County yet?

    What’s the difference between getting an on demand video interview and self paced text interview? I got an invitation to complete the on demand video interview. Also the original deadline date for it was 10/30/20, but just yesterday I received an email that stated the deadline moved up to 9/28/20, so I turned it in. Did this happen to anyone else?

    Postpartum-Tucks and Spray

    So I just want to confirm my understanding of the application of tucks. In addition to blot drying with tucks, you can also place them on your pads for continued relief?

    Postpartum-Tucks and Spray

    When you say squeeze bottle all around to clean, are you referring to just a bottle of warm water before blot drying with the tucks?

    Hallucinations

    so if a patient believes that their hallucination is real, would you provide reality orientation?

    Hallucinations

    If a patient is having a hallucination, but believe that hallucination is real, does that mean that patient is also having a delusion? I ask this because in my psychiatric clinicals I've had patients who were having a hallucination but know that the hallucination isn't real, yet I've also had patients who were having hallucinations but believe them to be real. Do you provide reality orientation to both types of patients?
  14. Also the setting would be an inpatient psychiatric facility
  15. First I would assess the patient's orientation level to person, time, location, and situation, and then provide the appropriate reality orientation. Next in a calm voice I would reassure the patient that he/she is safe and I'm here to help. After that I would promote a therapeutic environment by asking the patient if they would like to move to a more calm location on the unit so that the pt themselves can remain calm, so to place with less external stimuli, noise, and people. what else can you do for the disoriented/clumsy patient? Would you put them on 1:1 observation?
  16. Thank you all for your responses! For asking the patient what has worked for them in the past, would it still be okay to do so AS the patient is in a crisis situation?
