    OR travel

    I just want to know how it is as an OR traveler. I feel med surg is med surg no matter where you go. Is it the same for OR travel as well ?

    OR travel

    Afternoon All, I’m a circulator currently with 2 1/2 yrs exp. 5 1/2 yrs total. I was a med surg nurse before moving to the OR (I traveled as a med surg nurse as well) I was just wanting some insight from other OR travel nurses about how it is traveling in the OR. I’m about to start looking for assignments soon and I just wanted some insight. Thanks

    I finally got my license in California...

    Thank you for your input. I just got an offer in San Francisco and I'm super nervous but excited. I plan on doing all my assignments in California as well, but this will be my first assignment.

    I finally got my license in California...

    Hello, My license came in today from Ca. and I'm super excited. This will be my first travel assignment and I currently have 2 years of med-surg/tele/post op experience. To those who are knowledgeable about travel nursing in this state, which hospitals are travel nurse friendly? I'm from Louisiana and I'll be going there alone so I get a bit anxious at the thought of being so far away from home. Also, what were your experiences like working here. Thanks in advance.

    Feeling Overwhelmed & Incompetent

    Hello, I too am a new grad who work nights and I just finished my 6 weeks orientation a few days ago. I work at an urban hospital downtown and the pt acuity is high and its faced paced. So I must say I feel the EXACT same way. I make silly mistakes and feel like I'm not smart enough and I get so overwhelmed. And just when I think "okay my night is going pretty good" something happens to smack me right in the face and throws everything off. From what I hear it gets better and better, and God am I hoping so. I've had moments where I wanted to break down and cry and one time I actually did. Sorry I don't have any advice I'm still trying to find my footing myself, hopefully it'll get better for the both of us. Keep me posted.

    feeling so discouraged

    I wish I had some advice to help you with your situation. I'm sorry to hear about this. It seems like you made a simple mistake that didn't warrant you getting terminated, with 13 years experience I would assume that would speak for itself. I hope things work out for you. I'll keep you in my prayers.

    How I study NCLEX , my NCLEX drama

    Hello, I took nclex mar 3 and I as well everyone in our position freaks out!! But you'll be fine. Just make sure you do as many questions as you can and read each rationale even for the ones you got right. For my studies I used my Kaplan book, Saunders book, and our school gave Hesi/Saunders review material. I found Kaplan helped me to answer nclex style questions and with the more questions I did (50-150/day) the better I got at answering them. I mainly used saunders for content on the subjects I was a little rusty on. And little prayer never hurt nobody. Good luck to you!

    I used power points from school for EKG, that was only thing I found that broke it down in simple terms for me. Hopefully with all this waiting theres good news to come Retrievergirl

    failed first atempt

    Keep your head up. You can do this...just remember we know more than we actually think we do. I would advise you to do as many questions as you can reading each rationale and even writing them to remember better. Good luck sweets!
