  1. Nurses and narcotics

    Thank you SO much for the advice, guys! Honestly, for a while, I felt like this was all in my head, and maybe I was reading too much into the situation. But one thing I was taught as a kid is if someone is in a constant accusatory mindset, more than...
  2. Nurses and narcotics

    Thank you guys for your advice. I feel a little better knowing maybe I'm not crazy thinking this way. Another thing I forgot is last Thursday, when everyone in the office left to go home, the other nurse and I stayed after a little while longer to g...
  3. Nurses and narcotics

    Oh I am, believe me. Especially after yesterday when I do believe I caught her off guard asking about the Adderall. Thank you for the advice!
  4. Nurses and narcotics

    My apologies for this being such a novel! There's a lot on my mind and I'm not sure who or what to do at this point, so I'm going to let it out here and maybe one of you wonderful people can offer some advice. I've only been a nurse for about a year...
  5. RN to MSN online programs

    Does anyone know of any good RN to MSN online programs with decent tuition?
  6. Does anyone know of a good, inexpensive, and accredited program that does not require Chem? I have aeriously considered WGU, but considering it is pass/fail, I don't want to risk being stuck educationally and not being able to transfer outside WGU fo...
  7. Feeling like a total screw-up

    So I am going into my second week off of orientatjon, and I literally go in every night preparing myself for the day shift nurse or night supervisor to list all the things I had done wrong the previous night. I had 6 weeks of training, but honestly t...
  8. I'm hoping someone can shed some light on if this class is required or not. It is the only class that I dread taking if required...
  9. I'm sure I'm not the only one to ever go through the wide range of emotions that come with graduating nursing school. But honestly, I don't ever remember being this scared about anything in my life. In just a couple weeks, I will be graduating from ...
  10. Titration math help

    I'm working on sample titration math problems to help study for an upcoming exam, but there is no answer sheet to check my answers, and I was wondering if someone could double check my work to make sure I'm even doing it right. Here goes: Heparin is ...
  11. I'm doing my rotation on the cardiac floor and need help with thinking of at least three learning experiences and activities to achieve those objectives. I'm kind of at a stand-still and any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  12. So, I've FINALLY made it to the last semester of nursing school!! So far my classes are going really well, but what a long road it has been... In about 2-3 weeks we will be starting our practicum hours. Does anyone have any advice on what to expect ...
  13. Silly question about CPR

    I know the steps to CPR have changed -- compressions first, then give breaths. But we just had a test in my Med Surg class that had a particular question that, to paraphrase, said: "you come across an unresponsive person lying on the floor, what is t...
  14. Hello all! Tomorrow I will be going to the floor for the first full day of my externship and am soooo nervous because I'm not sure what to expect. I know it's different for every area, but can anyone give me some advice or words of wisdom to ease my ...
  15. Outpatient vs Inpatient Tracheostomy Care

    Thank you for the help! I appreciate it so much! But to be honest, I've already done the Google search with inpatient vs outpatient, and like I said, I may just well be overthinking this (which always seems to happen!), and I've found nothing. Litera...
