    Greensboro anyone?

    My family and I have been considering relocating fron CT to NC. We came down and looked at Charlotte and Concord which is right outside the city. Have been searching around and found greensboro and it seems like it might be a place for us. So what's it like? How is nursing in the area? What are pay rates? I've been a nurse for 3 years, worked in medicine for 2 and postpartum for 1. How is housing? Crime? Good place to raise kids?:wink2: :wink2:

  3. HI, I took the NCLEX yesterday and think I failed. The computer stopped at 105 or 106 questions and I felt it was pretty hard. I came home and looked up some of the "easy" questions I remembered and got them wrong. Just wondering cause everyone seems to pass with 75 or 265 questions. Teresa

    Question for postpardum nurses

    Hi, My name is Teresa and I will be graduating with my associates in May. I have been interested in OB nursing ever since I started school. I took on an intership on an LDRP this summer and loved it but don't know if L&D is for me. Honestly, I think I'm scared of the major responsibility and I don't think my assessment skills are high enough to start in this area. I was thinking of taking a job at a large hospital in my area (Yale New Haven Hospital) in postaprdum. My question is what is the role of a postaprdum nurse? Do you have to float to L&D? What types of patients do you see? Do you feel that you are able to keep your med/surg skills in this area? Do you feel its a good place for a new grad to start? Thanks in advance! Teresa

    What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby?

    What exactly is this supposed to mean? So now we are picking on specific cultures now? I've heard that name around and none of the people were black. Teresa

    Another shoes question

    Hi, this might sound stupid but I have seen lots of people wearing these clogs in the hospital and I would really love to get a pair and I was wondering if they can be found online and if anyone can help me. I will try to explain what they look like: they are like this clear plastic but they are not birki's or those other hard plastic clogs with a heel. They don't really have a heel and I have seen them in clear, pink, and even clear green on some people. Sorry again for asking, but I love these clogs! Thx, Teresa

    Summer Work..

    Hi, this summer I got an internship at the hospital that my school is connected to in the Family Birthing Center. I will be considered a student nurse intern and my salary is $11/hr. I don't think its too bad. It can possibly lead to a job during my last year next year and even as a new grad. Well see how it goes. I start June 3 for 40hrs per week. Teresa

    A&P and Nursing courses which one is harder?

    Hi, I currently attend St. Vincent's College in Bpt and am taking A&P with nursing courses and its very hard. I don't work so its much easier, so I devote all of my time to studying and spending time in the skills lab. I would say that from what I've seen so far, it depends on what you feel you can handle. I have taken A&P1 before so I already knew how to come in and study, but my advice is to study hard and try to get workbooks for anatomy. Well, if you have any questions you can email me at Teresab_2000@excite.com or my aol screename is sweetypie421925. Good luck with everything!!!

    Blood pressure

    Hi, I am a first year student in a 2 year nursing program. In our first day of clinicals we learned how to do blood pressure and I have been lost every since. I bought a blood pressure cuff and have been practicing, but as soon as I get into the skills lab I can't hear a thing! I am going to fall behind if I can't show this skil soon. Does anyone have any advice on how to hear a blood pressure more accurately? Please help! Teresa
  15. Hi, I am a nursing student very interested in L&D. I was possibly thinking of going back to school in the future for nurse midwifery education. I was wondering if any of you guys that work in L&D would ever consider going back to school for CNM? What are your experiences working with them on the floor? Teresa

    CNA's Anyone?

    Hi, I just wanted to hear some advice about becoming a CNA from all of you guys that are CNA's that work in hospitals. I just recently got a job as a unit secretary and I really hate it. Its not a completely bad job, its just completely boring. I don't wanna complain, but I really want to get some experiences before I enter nursing school in the fall. For the past week I've spent time talking and chatting with nurses and what they call PCA's (other known as CNA'S, same thing) and they have gave me some really good advice that i should get my CNA licence before going back to school so that i can work during the school year. I was just asking for advice from those of you who work or have worked in hospitals as a nursing assistant. Thanks!!
