  1. Pre-calculation of emergency meds?

    We have a computer program that we enter the patient's weight into and a list of pre-calculated emergency medication doses and volumes (for standard concentrations). 2 copies of our emergency med list stay at the bedside- one for the code team leade...
  2. Good Level 2 NICUs in the GTA for a New Grad?

    Credit Valley has a pretty large level 2 NICU. Others in Toronto/GTA that I can think of are Humber River, Toronto East General, Brampton, Etobicoke General, North York General, Oakville etc. Some of these NICUs/SCNs are quite small however with mini...
  3. Commute Time

    Absolutely no traffic (i.e. Sunday mornings) it's 25-30 mins door to door. Average daily commute is about 45 minutes but it is not uncommon for it to be upwards of 1-1.5hrs depending on traffic, road closures etc. Definitely not ideal.
  4. New Grad Peds CTICU

    Cincinnati Children's Hospital has an online encyclopedia of congenital heart defects with information on diagnosis/treatment/management etc. with videos that you might find helpful!
  5. Midwives and Nurses

    Here in Ontario nursing and midwifery are totally independent career paths. Midwifery is not a field/branch within nursing like it is in other countries.
  6. I think for me it would have to be NotReady4PrimeTime. I'm still a student (starting my final semester preceptorship next week on a peds transplant unit!) but I know that peds nursing is where I want to be. I have spent lots of time reading the PICU ...
  7. Alberta After Degree program, moving to Ontario.

    Check out information on the Nursing Graduate Guarantee here in Ontario- it's open to all Canadian new graduate nurses within 6 months of graduation (you can work on a temporary license with the College of Nurses of Ontario for the NGG but I'm not ex...
  8. Ontario Second-Entry Nursing

    Humber has a collaboration with the University of New Brunswick so all BN students (whether it is second-entry, generic 4 year program or RPN bridging program) will get a degree from UNB. You can definitely apply for Masters programs with this degree...

  10. Worried about phenergan IV push

    I've never given it or received it myself, but I've heard that it's a seriously painful injection. A friend of mine mentioned that it felt like her backside was on fire for AGES after it.
  11. 1/30 This week I learned: you suck, EMTALA.

    1) It's a lot harder to keep a nebulizer mask on a 30 day old baby than I anticipated! 2) I want to quit my part time retail job sooooo bad. It is getting to be too much with school and clinical and work that I feel like I have no time for ME. Too ba...
  12. Ontario Second-Entry Nursing

    I didn't because of the mix up with my transcript. They basically told me I could either wait until my transcript was "official" and see if there were still any spots available then (which there probably wouldn't have been), take an acceptance for a ...
  13. Euthanasia! your opinions needed please

    Last year the Supreme Court of Canada ruled unanimously that Canadians should have the right to physician-assisted suicide. I support this decision and firmly believe that under the right circumstances individuals with chronic, progressive and debili...
  14. Ontario Second-Entry Nursing

    1) I honestly don't even remember my gpa from my previous degree haha I think my cumulative was around a B+ and last two years around an A-? 2) I got accepted in April I think? They do rolling admissions so people could be admitted all the way until ...
  15. Can a RPN become a midwife ?

    No, there's three midwifery programs in Ontario (Ryerson, Laurentian and McMaster) and they are all 4 year Bachelor's degrees (previous nursing background plays no part in becoming a midwife in Ontario for the most part). There is one very small prog...
