    Atrial Fibrillation, Strokes and the WATCHMAN Implant

    When I worked in HF this was a valuable tool for those with AFib, especially for those who can not tolerate anticoagulation

    Nurses with Attitude

    Having been the bearer of bad news for years now to many patients/family members its all in how you approach it: I always ask what they've been told about the situation or what is your understanding of this situation? What kind of questions do you have? After I understand what they understand (whether right or wrong), then I steer the conversation to the meat of what I want to discuss. There is no reason for me to get emotionally involved because in order to do my job, I have to remain an objective observer.

    HELP. Need FNP advice

    Join your states' APRN organization, attend meetings, network. Contact some alumni from your school and see if they know of any jobs. Best wishes

    I have my first interview Friday and need pointers.

    lol - no lectures here. Some things to highlight: What level trauma center have you worked at? Did you hold a leadership position? Like charge nurse, preceptor... Do you plan to pursue ENP certification? Will you be going to the OR? If so, do you have an RNFA? How will you deal with team members? Everyone wants strong team members who doesn't get upset when the **** hits the fan If your ED cares for pediatric patients what are you special qualifications? Best wishes - let us know how it goes.

    How to be a Perfect Nurse

    There are no "perfect" nurses. The ones that "THINK" they are perfect are the ones that don't realize they made a mistake...or admit that they did.

    Oh gosh, first take a deep breath. Let your lawyer work for you. Also, as you admitted, you are depressed and upset (and this is natural considering the circumstances). Have you had a complete physical? How about some counseling? I'm gathering there are no substance abuse issues? Or if there are, start going to meetings; AA/NA or something. Please talk to someone in real life too - do you have a close family member or friend that you could bounce things off of? I'm truly sorry you are going thru this - please take care of yourself.
  15. The latest from the Journal of Burse Practitiones. Many states have made legislative changes. 18 states have now fully adopted the Consensus Model. Do you you know what’s new in YOUR state? https://journals.lww.com/tnpj/Fulltext/2019/01000/31st_Annual_APRN_Legislative_Update__Improving.5.aspx
