  1. BeachsideRN

    Free teaching labor

    I don't mind students typically but sometimes the timing and/or placement is very inappropriate. I was barely a RN for 6 months and was fresh off orientation at my new unit when I got my first student. It was very awkward and uncomfortable. I wasn't confident in my own practice at that point to be teaching. Two years later, I actually enjoy having students most days. I enjoy teaching them especially in the NICU because everything is uncharted territory for them. It helps that we are a very small unit and most of our patients are really intermediate care and not NI status for very long. I know it will never be considered to be a student differential but it would be nice to have a heads up that we are expecting students before the teacher waltzes them through the door and drops them off.

    Best RN Health Coach Program??

    Our facility just started hiring Clinical Health Coaches... the salaries are mid 40s-50s, M-F 8-5 type gig. They require a BS in nursing or health related field, and prefer a MSN or Master's in a health field such as Public Health. They also required health coach certification with in 6 months of hire from a NCCA organization or Wellcoaches.

    Giving up PA school acceptance to pursue ASN?

    Have you considered an accelerated BSN program?

    Is it time to stop? Adult to Neonatal.

    This is so true. Maybe ask for a few shifts doing well baby assessments if you have a LD unit. That will help you differentiate normal from abnormal. Also, grab a copy of Merenstein's NICU handbook

    New to Infusion

    I have been recently hired at the Cancer Center Infusion clinic. My background is trauma PCU and NICU - along with cancer research (pre-nursing). Aside from the ONS Chemo/Biotherapy Cert course and hospital policies, what do you recommend for a new infusion RN to brush up on?
  6. BeachsideRN

    Is it time to stop? Adult to Neonatal.

    Take a deep breath and *think* before acting. You are coming from adult nursing and it is way different than NICU. Your actions appear to me to be nerves getting the best of you and acting before thinking. Slow down. Pay attention.

    UCF DNP 2019

    Anyone else here apply for UCF (Central Florida) DNP program? I applied for the FNP track for 2019. I applied through the non-nursing bachelor's path as I have a BA in chemistry, MPH, and an ASN RN. Hoping to find out soon!
  8. This is truly bizarre. I'm an ADN student and was hired into the nurse tech program for current students.
