    Where are the RN transition training programs?

    Awesome, thank you! Oh nice! I'll look into it, thank you!

    Where are the RN transition training programs?

    Thank you but it's very unlikely that a hospital will hire me on to an L&D unit with my type of experience especially since I'm no longer a new grad.
  3. Hello, Can anyone recommend a nurse training program (preferably in AZ or CA) where the facility trains the experienced nurse in a new field? I'm interested in working in L&D and am very interested in going through a hospital training program. I've done a lot of research online on this subject and have come to a dead end. Most all of the programs out there offer this type of program to new grad nurses only. Thanks for your help in advance.
  4. We have a nurse who is well known by the other nurses to hide out and do as little work as possible. She is a casual employee and plans her schedule perfectly so she can do as little work as possible. Every shift there is at least one nurse upset with her performance and feels the need to vent about her. She does not work as part of our team. What's the best way to approach this? I would like to take a team of nurses with me with evidence to our leadership (nurse manager and department head) to discuss this problem. This has been an ongoing problem for years. Opinions?
  5. These detainees and inmates have all the rights in the World. They are receiving FREE healthcare. They have the option to see a psychologist, psychiatrist, MD, MLP, Social Worker daily if they choose for free. That's definitely not the issue.
  6. I work at a detention facility where detainees and inmates will claim that they are suicidal either because they want to be alone, attempt to get extra food or they want someone to talk to (the officer that will be posted outside the door). 90% of these detainees/inmates who claim suicidality are not actually suicidal but they know that as soon as they make that clam, policy says, we must place them in the safety cell. Is there any way around this? How can this be deterred?

    Quitting a per diem job

    Due to previously making myself available to work then frequently being cancelled last minute (2 hours before the shift starts due to staffing needs), I'm going to have to put in my notice for this per diem job working with MGA. Unfortunately it's been less than 6 months. Is this something that I can point out in my letter of resignation or should no? For example, "Due to erratic cancellations due to staffing needs, I've decided to resign effective 12/6/2016..."
  8. I went from working in telemetry to now working at a detention facility. I don't understand why some of the nurses that I work with can become so easily stressed out in this type of environment. The detainees are not dying. Education, pill passing and lot's of charting is involved in detention nursing. Keep in mind, I don't work in a prison, I work with low level inmates and detainees. I got my ear chewed off my last shift from this nurse that was so stressed out with all the little busy work. She had a terrible frown on her face the entire shift with just a nasty attitude. I just couldn't understand. She's been working there much longer than me and she plans to move and start telemetry nursing. I just don't know how that's going to work out on her end. How do you deal with co-workers who are like this? I just want to tell them to sit down and relax or go home!

    Burned out, quitting and need advice!

    Yes, I called them and they confirmed that there are no available PD/casual shifts available.

    Burned out, quitting and need advice!

    I really don't want to quit my current job working in corrections at CCA. I would rather stay, but change my status from FT employee to PT. We are very short staffed as it is on night shift. This way I won't leave the nurses I work with completely out to dry. I'm leaving because I'm unhappy with scheduling. I'm having to work five 8 hour nights a week (because another FT night employee left) and this is way to hard on my body! The problem is that I've been told by my nurse manager that they (my agency) probably won't approve me to do this and I'll probably have to put in my notice to quit. In my 2 weeks notice letter, is it ok to write that I'm quitting but more than willing to stay on to continue helping out per diem. Will this make a difference. I'd hate to lose this job. It's been a good experience, it's just my schedule is killing me. Advice on what to write?
  11. I've been working at my current job for almost 3 months. Just a few week off orientation working independently. Last night I worked with 2 other nurses. One happened to be another new nurse. The nurse that had been there longer had the nastiest attitude I've ever seen. From the moment she saw the assignment posted on the board you could just tell she was upset. I'm not sure why, maybe because she would be working with the two newest nurses? She complained, rolled her eyes, made us feel like she didn't want us to be working with her, made it clear that a certain area was hers, very unhelpful as well. It was completely unprofessional. I notified the nurse manager. Apparently they are good friends, so that wasn't very helpful with the plan that the two of them had come up with. So I sent an email to someone one step higher than my nurse manager. We'll find out today if anything has changed. Apparently this wasn't the first time that this has been an issue with this nurse. Almost makes me feel like I found the wrong job because of this one employee. Advice? Opinions? Similar situations? Please share, thank you.
  12. I had a hard time as a new nurse and am very appreciative of the staff that were patient with me. Is it ok to give a couple of movie tickets/gift cards to these specific staff members (techs I worked well with, my preceptors, managers...)? I would so like to thank the people who have taken the time to write me a letter of recommendation. I'm moving out of the state is it ok to thank these people buy purchasing a small gift card/movie tickets? Opinions?
  13. Just sent it, thank you. Will also provide a typed and signed letter as well.
  14. I don't want to be tacky but my unit director works days and I work nights and I have been unable to see her in person for the past couple of days. I don't want to drag this out any further. Can I at least email her a heads up that I will be resigning and leave copy of my typed letter of resignation in her mailbox? Also I mentioned over a month ago to my unit director that I will be moving away soon so she already has some idea. Also if emailing my letter of resignation should I also cc: HR and my supervisor? Appreciate the help/opinions.

    What agencies do you all travel with?

    When traveling with so many different companies, does that make it difficult when it comes to filing taxes?
  16. I'm interested in applying for travel nursing jobs through them but have never heard of the company before. There are actually very few reviews about the company online.
