  1. Awesome, thank you both for responding, I really appreciate it. I was really leaning towards the Doula program because it's closer to where I'd like to go, and I don't think the clinic will help me get there as much. I have an interview for the Doula...
  2. Yes I’m sorry I wasn’t clear. The clinic teaches women about the risks of abortion and have them consider alternatives such as adoption. They’re pro-life
  3. I'm currently working on a med/surg unit and looking into L&D. I'm looking at places to volunteer at. I have 2 options, but I can only pick one because I work full time (12 hr, 0.9 FTE) and just started a family. Here are the 2 options: Opti...
  4. From Med/Surg to Postpartum

    I really wish I could apply to other NICU positions but they ALL require NICU experience - especially Kaiser. There are no transitions programs either. So I'm really in a tight spot. One of the reasons why the nurse said it's easier to go to NICU lat...
  5. From Med/Surg to Postpartum

    The manager does know me,we've met through Shared Governance and I've emailed her several times about my interest and when I sent in an application. I keeping in touch with one of the nurses who work on the unit. So far, it looks like the positions I...
  6. From Med/Surg to Postpartum

    Hi everyone, I have been working at my hospital for 3 years now - 2 years with med-surg/tele, 1 year with Surgical patients. This is my only acute care experience. My goal at first was to get into my hospital's NICU, but I heard from a Postpartu...
  7. Volunteer at Hospital you work at

    Thank you so much for your responses! I plan to do this later in the future, maybe in a year after I've given birth and go back to work after my maternity leave. I did join Shared Governance so that I can start networking with people in other departm...
  8. I'm currently studying for the CNL exam, and I could really use some advice. I graduated from my CNL program 4 years ago, so I'm a little rusty. I know I should have taken it sooner, however there were circumstances that happened that I needed to att...
  9. Volunteer at Hospital you work at

    I'm just curious what everyone's opinion is on this topic. I currently work on an adult surgical unit, but my dream job is to one day work in peds or NICU. The hospital I work at doesn't have a peds unit, but it does have a NICU. I'd like to get my f...
  10. Feel like an incompetent nurse

    Thank you all so much for your kind a reassuring words! I feel more ensured knowing I'm not the only one who went through this stage. At the old unit I worked at, I was night shift, and was so comfortable and familiar with everything. Now not only am...
  11. Feel like an incompetent nurse

    I've been a nurse for 3 years now, 2 years in an acute care setting. I recently started working on another unit at the same hospital (newly opened surgical unit too). My fellow co-workers are so amazing, reliable and smart that I feel so inadequate n...
  12. New Nurse Peds Hospital

    Hi fellow nurses! After working at an adult sub-acute/rehab center for 10 months and working at a day care for medically fragile kids for 5 months, I finally got my dream job at a peds hospital! I'd really love to make a lasting impression on the man...
  13. MSN vs BSN

    Hi there! So I did an entry-MSN program and most of my classmates and myself were able to get RN jobs, both acute and non-acute not too long after the program ended. It is true though that some hospitals or new grad programs require or prefer a BSN I...
  14. Getting the Foot in the Door

    Thank you guys for your fast response and advise! I truly appreciate it! I actually have my MSN in nursing. I did a MSN-Entry program for non-nurses. My volunteer role at the hospital is being a bedside companion to patients who need it, so I'm not a...
  15. 265 questions?

    I did! I passed with all 265 questions. I had a classmate who also passed with 265 questions. Did you try the trick?
