    Maine for New Grad

    I am going to graduate in May from a BSN program in Colorado, and I am looking into relocating to Maine for my first job. I was wondering if Maine has any nurse residencies that would be good for someone looking to get into critical care at some point? Thank you in advance!

    Thank you for the recommendation! However I am currently out of the country for a family emergency and won't be able to pursue an interview this way.

    Looking to interview a Nurse!

    I am working on a project for nursing school, which is writing a research paper on NPSG Goal (NPSG.07.03.01) and would like to interview a nurse involved in infection control (which is all nurses, so I figured I'd start here) I'll be asking a few basic questions about current infection control protocols, changes happening in this area, differences between practice and theory, and your personal observation and experiences in your work (or whatever subjects you are comfortable talking about) My goal is to have completed the conversation before Friday 11/25 I am fine with private messaging on allnurses, a phone call, skype call, or email. Let me know your preference! If there is anyone interested in helping me out, it would be greatly appreciated!!

    Case Study help

    I found a paragraph in my textbook that says the following: "Clinical signs are decreased or absent breath sounds, noisy respirations, decreased O2 sat., chest asymmetry, sternal retractions, accessory muscle use, trachea deviated form midline, fever, tachypnea, dyspnea, tachycardia, diaphoresis, pleural pain, increased restlessness, anxiety." That pretty much has all the symptoms if anxiety is causing the hypertension.

    Case Study help

    Pain, infection, atelectasis, blood clot, effects from anesthesia...that's all I can think of. The case study unfolds into an atelectasis case, but I can't find a reference stating hypertension, tachycardia, or a fever can be symptoms of atelectasis.

    Case Study help

    I'm working on a case study from Winningham's critical thinking book and I'm stuck on this question. I just need some guidance or hints because I'm really stuck. Scenario M.N. age 40 is admitted with acute cholecystitis, elevated WBC, and a fever of 102F. She has undergone an open cholecystectomy and has been transferred to your floor. It is the second day postop. She has a NGT to continuous low wall suction, on perpheral IV and a large abd dressing. her orders are as follows: progress diet to low-fat diet as tolerated; D51/2NS with 40mEq KCL at 125 ml/hr; TCDB q2h; IS q2h while awake; dangle in AM, ambulate in PM; morphine sulfate 10mg IM q4h prn pain; ampicillin 2 g IVPB q6h; CXR in am. Progress Report: Her VS are 148/82, 118, 24, 101F Sao2 is 88%. based on her vital signs, what do you think could be happening to M.N. and why? Sepsis would involve hypotension, if it's atelectasis, I can't find any literature that lists these vital signs as part of the presentation

    Pathophysiology book!

    What pathophysiology book do you guys recommend? The only posts I could find were from 6 or 7 years ago, so I thought I'd ask again :) I'm 3 weeks into my 2 1/2 year nursing program after 2 years of pre-reqs, and I'd like one that would carry me through a few semesters!

    Travel Nursing Time off

    I am a pre-nursing student and have always been interested in travel nursing. I was wondering if nurses are able to take time off between assignments? I'm not talking about paid time off, I'm talking about taking a couple months (unpaid) and volunteering in another country or something, and still able to work for the same company afterwards. Thanks for any info!
