    Bsn programs are harder than Adn

    Did somebody think that a higher education is easier? Really? Try doctorate also it might be easier than ADN.

    Relocating to Naples, FL

    Hello everyone! It has been a while since my last post. My wife and I used to travel a lot mostly inside FL. We fell inlove with Naples so we are going to settle over there. Any thoughts in working with NCH for full time? Pay? Benefits? PTOs? Coworkers? They are offering me TCU job which is a new department for them that will just going to open this Aug. 2015. Thoughts will surely be appreciated. Thank you.

    Potassium baths- dialysate

    Im with you on that one. Acute dialysis can be aggressive with baths, but not enough pulling of fluids though. Chronic have to be slow cooking type of treatment that needs to be good in the end.

    Potassium baths- dialysate

    I have never seen a patient or order that is 0 K. That will make pts complain of severe cramping and worst case scenario, dysrrhythmias. Nephrologist nowadays never use potassium free bath. In our clinic the standard bath is 2K for patient who has stable potassium or within normal range. 1K bath for those who has >5.0 K+ 3K bath for thosw who has It doesnt mean if the pt has serum K+ of 3.0 and has a bath of 3K will not elevate the pt's serum K+, 3K bath is a very potent potassium and can increase pt's K+ immensely.

    South University FNP MSN program???

    I am currently taking SU's FNP. They want you to finish the first course by taking one course only, once your done with the first one you can tell them that you want to take 2 classes at a time.

    2015 Rn pay per hour

    That really depends on your negotiation skills. If you aree risky you can get what you want or you can lose what's the best offer. Im having $29/hr in a rural area with one year experience here in US but I have 2 years out of the country.

    Its low but true. But the tax in FL is not that high unlike in any other state.

    I finally got into dialysis with Davita

    You gotta be kidding. 16 yrs and making $25/hr? And in dialysis? Lol! Some of these commentators are not for real.
  19. jayjaybsnrn

    Sure didn't expect this!

    I got questions, what kind of facility, area of specialty, and what position are u apllying for anyway? Sometimes it depends on what kind of position. Especially for your 22+ experience you are overqualified for a staff nurse position.
  20. U also gotta tell them what kind of procedures the pt had done. Read the case managers report if what is the plan for discharge, how long will the pt will stay. It really depends. Some nurses just wanna know if whats the plan especially ots in the shift report paper already anyway. And some others really dont like u if they just feel that they dont like u.. does that make sense? Especially if u are younger than them because they easilly get intimidated..

    I failed the NCLEX twice and I am distraught

    Dont think that u fail, because u are still trying. U failed if u stop trying to take it. Just take your time dont rush it. And a lot of people didnt pass it the first time or second time and pass it eventually. If they can do it, you can do it too.

    Help! So Depressed...

    I am not been a nurse for a long time yet but I know every new field or area of nursing is different and you really gotta learn something new and it really takes time to be comfortable in different areas. Even thugh your old and have a lot of experience as a nurse it doesnt mean that your suppose to know everything.. it takes time so dont be rough on yourself. Think of it that your a new nurse and learning new stuff.
