  3. Diluting Ativan?

    Same here! Our mar doesn't say anything, can't say I've looked at the vial but it comes in a carpujet which I always assumed was for direct injection. I actually asked my ED pharmacist the other day and she said there's no need to dilute it and I ask...
  4. New Grad ED woes.. advice appreciated!

    Sounds like you've had a rough orientation honestly. I lucked out with my orientation and I stayed with the same preceptor who had had 20+ years experience and loved to teach. I will never forget or appreciate enough the orientation he gave me. That ...

  6. Travel Agencies to use for NYC?

  7. Thinking of giving up FNP program

    Just an update for everyone if they are interested in what I decided, I withdrew from South University because I found the class I was taking was blatantly misformatted online, also there were unfeasabile amounts of study material with no study guide...

  10. Nurse to Patient ratio in NYC or NY

    I know this has probably been asked a dozen times, I just wanted some up to date information I already skimmed some old forums and didn't really get my answer. I'm a travel nurse in Orlando currently and i gotta say I do love it! I told them I want t...

  12. Domestic Violence charge in Florida

    It is a misdemeanor, my lawyer is trying to see if he can get it dismissed and my boyfriend signed an affidavit to not press charges and not testify and not be a witness to the state which the lawyer said would help get it dropped. I'm really hoping ...
  13. Domestic Violence charge in Florida

    And in the case I do become convicted, will I lose my license for this?? I have a clean record before this, and am currently in a masters program to become a nurse practitioner, I would hate to give that all up and I just recently earned my bachelors...
