    License question

    Thank you. Unfortunately I can't get a PRN job as I only worked in a hospital setting for 6mo before quitting. I was doing part time for a private duty company after quitting the hospital and I guess I could pick up a shift here and there once my son...

    License question

    I have searched all over the Texas BON website and cannot find the answer to my question. I'm currently a stay at home mom and was licensed in June of 2014. How long can I stay out of the work field before my license expires from lack of working? Is...

    Should I wait to have a baby?

    I wouldn't do it. I graduated with my BSN may 2014 and had my first baby last month. There's no way I could have made it through school with a baby. And clinicals plus late nights studying and stressful tests would have been awful while pregnant. Pe...

    Pulse Ox

    This might be a really dumb question, but I am wondering if I can use my regular pocket pulse ox on pedi patients? Or will I need to buy a special pediatric one? Right now my patients are 10mo, and 5 y/o.

    Losing Skills?

    I'm glad I'm not alone. I feel that my GN internship in the ICU helped me a lot, but those skills are like anything else If you don't use it you lose it!

    Losing Skills?

    I'm a new RN. Graduated with my BSN last May. I worked in the ICU for 6mo but couldn't handle the 2 hour commute and working nights. I'm almost 7mo pregnant and now working pediatric PDN. I'm afraid I'm losing my skills, but I don't want another ac...

    Your Opinion

    I was trying to conceive and having problems during my OB rotation in school. For that reason, I HATED my OB class and rotation. All it did was remind of what I so badly wanted and couldn't have. I'm pregnant now, a year later, but before I got pre...

    TX RN positive Ebola

    I work at a big hospital about 5 miles away and my husband has already given me permission to quit if we get an Ebola patient. Scary stuff.

    TIPS for New Grads entering ICU

    I'm a new grad in the ICU. Been there 4 months. For me, the hardest part has been the feeling that I'm expected to know everything right off the bat. I left work feeling like an idiot most times during orientation. The critical thinking aspect is hu...
