  1. an ICU nursing book please?

    I love "hemodynamic monitoring made incredibly visual". i moved to the ICU after 5 years of nursing (ER and med/surg) and it continues to be a great reference. Good Luck!
  2. What path would be easier to get a job in with no experience?

    I felt alot like you when I was in school: I loved to learn and was already looking for the next degree! I graduated with my BSN and got the only job I could at the time (med/surg) and wouldn't trade the experience for anything! I think the best way...
  3. Lied to in Interview

    PLEASE think really hard about this... nurses leave jobs all the time, heck, PEOPLE in general leave jobs. Employers expect this. I am only writing because I have let a lot of amazing positions pass me up and missed opportunities to grow all for the ...

  8. Words You Hate

    I wish i got up early enough to even consider putting on beautifying parabens prior to my shift....
  11. Post ops coming back to ED as "holding" patients

    No, they have to go to PACU and stay there until a bed is ready. Patient's from surgery get "first dibs" on beds bc those are not licensed beds and legally cannot be used for inpatient or obs beds. That means the ED gets backed up with admissions bc ...

    I bought mine there and it saved me at least $75. If you are worried check the return policy, product review, seller ratings, etc. :)
  14. Help with scrub pant brand

    Heart and soul brand usually has a heart button on the front or back pockets of their scrubs. However they usually have their logo embroidered on the waistbands so even if your tag was ripped out you probably would have been able to see it... but i t...
