    L&D interview

    Hi everyone, Im a peds ED nurse and was granted an interview in L&D! Clearly unexpected since everyone wants experience. What type of questions should I expect for this interview? I'm really nervous about this especially since the only L&D exposure I've had was in nursing school. Thanks in advance

    Common drugs used in L&D

    Hi everyone. I’m about to start a new job in L&D. I’m coming from peds ER so completely different patient population for me. Are there any meds that I should familiarize myself with. Or anything else I should know before starting? I am supposed to have a 20+week orientation so that makes me a lot less anxious. Any input would be greatly appreciated

    Common drugs used in L&D

    Klone THANK YOU. I have been trying desperately to get some insight from other L&D nurses on this forum. I am truly truly grateful. If you have ANY other tips or advice I am all ears! I start my new position soon and I am terrified but excited about this new journey. I feel like a new grad all over again. Thanks again.

    Why labor and delivery

    Hi everyone. I’m a nurse who’s been in the Peds ED for the past 3.5 years. Although I love peds and just sort of liking the ER, I don’t think that’s where I want to stay. I applied to MANY NICUs and labor and delivery positions with no luck. Decided to take a leap of faith and apply out of state. Got an interview and just accepted a job in labor and delivery. I have a million emotions happening all at one time. New state, new job, new patient population. So excited to see what happens next. Anyway can I get some good and bad of labor and delivery from nurses who are there or have been there. Are you happy? Why do you love/hate it? Thanks in advance

    Visiting Atlanta

    Hello my fellow nurses. I am flying up to Atlanta this weekend to do a little research on some areas for our potential relocation. We are looking at Acworth, Kennesaw, Cummings, Johns Creek, Buford, Suwannee areas. I have been doing some research on some of the hospitals and am hoping to end up at one of the CHOA campuses, Northside hospital campus, or Wellstar facility. If anyone has any information on any of these areas or hospitals please advise. Pay, commute, and overall job satisfaction would be very helpful. I'll have 2 years of peds ER nursing experience and halfway through my BSN program by the time we move. Thank you all in advance

    No I haven't. I'm just starting the licensure process. I have to find a job first before I pick up and move my family!!!

    Visiting Atlanta

    I have 2 kids so great school districts are my top priority. I was looking more outside of the perimeter because I hear the public schools in Atlanta are pretty terrible, and the housing is more affordable. I don't know much about the areas. I'm hoping to get a better feel over my next few visits. Thank you for the advice. It was helpful.

    BSN required?

    Thankyou for the info. I am starting WGU in July. So hopefully that will help get me hired. No desire to go into management.

    BSN required?

    Do they hire ADN nurses?
  15. Jayjormom

    BSN required?

    So all the websites say ADN required but BSN preferred. Are there any ADN grads having problems finding jobs in the Atlanta area?

    Atlanta Area pay?

    Is anyone able to tell me what the avg pay for RN with 1-2 years experience? We are looking to move end of this year or summer next year. I am hoping to be done or close to done with my RN-BSN program by then. I am also looking for pediatrics. I am currently in ER right now and would prefer to stay there but I am not opposed to going into other areas. Just as long as its in peds. Can anyone recommend any hospitals that has pediatrics? If so, hows the pay/hiring process/ more importantly the morale of the hospital? Thank you all in advance

    BSN required?

    our lady of the lake hospital pay

    That does suck. Im not surprised though. Baton Rouge nurse pay seems to be pretty low compared to other areas in southern Louisiana. I'm curious about the other hospitals pay in that area. Oh and thank you both for your responses

    our lady of the lake hospital pay

    Does anyone have any experience with U-TEPs RN-BSN online program? I'm looking into this program. Mainly due to the number of classes that I will have to take. Any input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

    Q's about Charity School

    I just graduated from charity in May. I had really great hands on experience going through this program. It has a great reputation across the city. As far as employment goes, most of my class had jobs before graduation.

    Applying ~ Charity School of Nursing Fall 2016

    You won't receive an invite to Sigma Alpha Chi until you are in your 3rd semester. It's based on your gpa
  24. Do nothing. Sleep. Catch up on your favorite tv shows. Spend time with your family. Trust me. You'll have more than enough studying once you start school. You're going to look forward to the days (these days are very rare btw) when you don't have to open a book. Good luck on you nursing school journey!!!

    What is your motivation?

    Ha!! You do ask a lot of questions!!!!!! Sounds like someone is nervous about starting school. I can relate. I had a million questions before I started. To answer your question, my motivation are my kids and the thought of having to go back and work on the ambulance. Believe it or not, that is motivation number one. I had come to loathe my work environment. Good luck on your nursing journey!!!
