Rbeck911 is a BSN, RN and specializes in Occupational Health / EMS.

I am an Occupational Health Nurse, proud father and husband, and avid motorcycle enthusiast. Also, a huge Indianapolis Colts Fan. I come from an emergency background. I am always seeking to develop both personally and professionally. Complacency and I do not mix well, and I strive to develop until the day I retire.

    How to start OCC Health program?

    Reach out to the clinic/hospital that you send your bad injuries to. They should be able to help you at a very negotiated rate.

    Employee Health Nurse duties

    I have only worked on site, and prefer it to hospital, but I deal closely with hospital Occ Health. They spend a lot of time case managing and scheduling. Depends on what your role will be though. Usually they have MA's doing most of the patient c...

    How to start OCC Health program?

    Sexy male scrubs

    You know what, I feel you bro. What's wrong with trying to look good in your scrubs?! The dudes say, "Their only for function" probably look like goofballs. Check out iguana scrubs. They are great and form fitting but don't come in tall sizes...

    Got a job offer as a Safety Technician at a cannery

    As 42 Pines has said in the past, try not to appear too overzealous in this position when it comes to rescue. Certainly respond appropriately, but he is right to say that the EMS adrenaline junkie does not translate well to occupational health for w...

    Excelsior Exams

    Geesh, how many hours a day were you studying? 2 weeks seems pretty insane. I have read that some people pass all the exams using only the study guide and practice tests. Any thoughts on that?
  16. I just started also and picked up studygroup101's study guides. I bought the entire package for 100 dollars or so. I've had my nose in the first one for the last 3 hours and it seems very good. It is very long, but only the first 68 pages are cont...
