  1. How did you get out of bedside nursing?

    Nice. I always envied the PICC line nurses and Dialysis nurses who just do their thing and leave. How did you get your training as a vascular access nurse? This also sounds appealing to me!
  2. How did you get out of bedside nursing?

    Thanks so much. I will look into these nursing jobs as well. But is it hard to land these jobs with no experience? Do they train experienced floor nurses who want to transition into these jobs? A lot of the job requirements I see say they require at ...
  3. How did you get out of bedside nursing?

    Thanks for the PM, it won't let me reply back yet. What is a day in the life like in your nursing job?
  4. How did you get out of bedside nursing?

    Why not home health?
  5. How did you get out of bedside nursing?

    What made you come back to bedside? If anything, I want a full time non-bedside job and still keep my per diem bedside job so I don't lose my skills. Thanks for inspiring me! I am going to apply everywhere!!
  6. How did you get out of bedside nursing?

    Hello, I've been a RN, BSN for about 7.5 years, working as a floor nurse for the most part on the night shift 7pm-7am. I started out my career at age 25-years-old on a busy Med-Surg Tele unit, worked my way up to a Preceptor, Resource Nurse and Charg...
  7. Being out of ratio. Is it legal in California?

    Wow. Very useful info. Thank you so much MunoRN! And thanks for that link too! Until that Bill passes, it seems like we are powerless in refusing out of ratio assignments. It just feels so unsafe at times. Not sure I will be staying at this hospital ...
  8. Hello, I work as an RN on a Stroke Unit at a fairly large hospital in Southern California. I have been a nurse for 8 years and this is my first year at this particular hospital. I've noticed they will work us out of ratio with 5:1 tele patients and t...
  9. New hospital, but not a new nurse blues...

    It actually is policy to not speak any other language other than English out in the nurses station, but they continue to speak to me in Tagalog, within earshot of patients and their families. All of the things you mention sound great in a welcoming e...
  10. New hospital, but not a new nurse blues...

    Exactly. My cousin refers to them as "the Filipino mafia!" It definitely feels like hazing, and I am not thrilled about having to go through it. I am just baffled at how they are able to get away with such behavior. It is annoying to say the least. I...
  11. I recently got hired at a bigger hospital and I think I am not liking my charge nurses at night. Just a little background, I'm still working at my current smaller community hospital per diem where I love my coworkers for the most part, including all ...
  12. Help! Audited for CEU's I thought I had...

    Yes, I've sent them an email explaining my situation and my attempts to retrieve my certifications. I also explained the hardships I have gone through the past 2 years and if they would take that into consideration. I keep trying to call so I can spe...
  13. Help! Audited for CEU's I thought I had...

    I did this already, but they are still saying that I didn't complete the course even though they have proof that I paid for the course. Now it's my word against theirs and they won't do anything to help me. Guess I'm screwed...
  14. Help! Audited for CEU's I thought I had...

    I called the company I did the CE's with, they have record that I paid for the class in September 2014, but they're saying their computer records show I didn't complete the course!! I know I completed the course because I did the questions and got my...
  15. Help! Audited for CEU's I thought I had...

    Thank you joanna73. I've already completed a new set of 30 CEU's and mailed it back to the BRN. It's not within the time frame they are asking for because it's completed February 2015, but we'll see what they say. I am keeping my fingers crossed that...
