    RN to Dental Hygienist RDH anyone done it

    RN to Dental Hygienist RDH anyone done it

    I have read plenty of posts by Hygienists RDH who have gone from RDH to RN but none from Nurses going to RDH. I am interested in this route and gathering information specifically from RN Nurses who have gone back to school for RDH. I am attracted to routine, 1 pt at a time, and specialty. Here are some ?'s for you. Stress level comparison? Physical/Mental burden comparison? Patient difficulties comparison? Which do you prefer and why? Would you do it all over again? Thank you for the input.

    Drowning on the floor...only 2 months in. HELP!

    Julie, I too am having this problem working 3/12 hr shifts. My sleep is horrible for all the same reasons you stated. My mind is constantly thinking about pt situations and having to go back to work the next day. Even my days off are fill with anticipated dread. I am thinking of switching to 1 day of week just like you. I am more concerned about my health and longevity than the money.

    Trial shift at an endoscopy clinic

    I'm curious if the pay rate is comparable to med-surg nursing? I am looking to get out of med surg nursing. It has beaten me to a bloody pulp, and I can't do it much longer. Anyhow - any word on the pay comparison from someone who has done both?

    ? Delineation of practice for CNA/MA in wound care

    I received no responses yet, so I restarted this topic under a different title. Perhaps that will attract a couple responses. The thread is now under "CNA doing wound vacs??"

    CNA doing wound vacs??

    WOC professionals, Do CNAs place wound vacs in your healthcare setting? In my wound clinic CNAs can place wound vacs. Our CNA is wound certified. The certification class she took was for CNAs. Regardless....I have never seen this before. I am wondering if CNAs doing wound vacs is more common than I know. What are your thoughts:happy: ---------------------------------- PS I started a thread last week but noone responded, so I'm attempting again with a different title.
  10. Attention WOC professionals, Does anyone know what the scope of practice is for a CNA in wound care? I am curious about the delineation in care from an RN, based on what I've seen in my care setting. There are some things I've seen CNAs do in practice that I didn't know were in their scope...for example wound vac placements. Perhaps this is acceptable, and I just am not in the know. Please, educate me.

    Mayo New Grad Residency Feb 2018

    Very interesting...my Mayo Portal interface looks entirely different today. I'm thinking they may have done a website overhaul, at least for the jobbing/profile portion. Then again, I just updated my computer so maybe that has something to do with it.

    Just saying, but the wait is killing me. UGH! I just want to know already so I can quit thinking about it every 5 minutes. LOL. I'm sure others are feeling the same. #Sleeplessinphoenix
