    Washington Hospital Center Transportation

    Thank you SO much. This makes me feel better about not having a car. I appreciate the information!!!
  2. Hello everyone, I'm hoping someone can clarify what I'm reading online about public transportation to/from WHC. I am starting a job in the ICU there in a week and a half. I just moved to DC and thought I would have a car but now it looks like I won't. The hospital's website is a bit confusing when it comes to public transportation. How easy is it to get to/from the hospital via the metro or bus system? I am living in NW DC in the mount Vernon triangle area. Does the shuttle bus at WHC go to/from both metro stations (Brookland and Columbia?)? Also what about on the weekends? Please let me know!! Thanks! JD1190

    Vanderbilt CVICU

    Hi there, I recently had a phone interview with Vanderbilt for their CVICU and have an in person interview in two weeks. The recruiter told me they do not disclose base pay over the phone. Does anyone here know the nurse salary at Vanderbilt for a nurse with 1 year of experience? Also any experiences working at Vanderbilt- good or bad? Thanks in advance! *I️ did post this in Tennessee nursing but have not gotten any responses yet so thought I️ would try this forum

    Hypertension/Blown Bypass Graft

    Hi everyone, I am an orient on a Cardiac Surgery step down and have to take an exam next week. They gave us a list of topics to study and there is one particular topic that I'm having a hard time finding information on. The topic is hypertension/blown bypass graft. I am assuming that is post CABG and the hypertension causes the graft to tear leading to hemorrhage. Am I on the right track? Do any of you know of any resources on this topic? I haven't been exposed to it yet but I need to know the signs/symptoms, interventions, what to tell MD, labs to get, etc. If I could just find something on the physiology of it I would be able to figure it out. Any help is much appreciated!!

    Cleveland Clinic Health Survey

    Hi All, I passed my boards and got my official offer letter from CC! I was sent a lot of different things to fill out and one was the health survey. I have a question and I hope someone could shed light on the subject. I have Crohn's and a bleeding disorder. I am also on Humira. None of these things have ever affected my ability to do my job both as a student or in the clinical setting. The Health survey asks what prescription medications do I take and whether I've had any "serious injuries, illnesses or hospitalizations". If I hit yes, I must check off that it was due to Crohn's and my bleeding disorder. It's making me a bit uneasy. Does anyone know what they use this information for? Could they rescind my offer because I said "yes" to these or put that I did take prescription medications? I am not sure why they need to know this information. I've also read that if I do not state this information, and CC finds out after the fact, that is grounds for termination. I guess I just need help on what this information will be used for? Thank in advance for any advice...
  7. Hi everyone, I recently accepted a position at the Cleveland Clinic as a new grad nurse. I absolutely loved the hospital/floor I interviewed on and had a great feeling leaving the interview. I was only in Cleveland for about 1 1/2 days during my interview, however, and don't know much about Ohio as I am from the Philadelphia area. I will likely be moving in February and was wondering if anyone had any info what it is like being a new grad nurse at the Cleveland Clinic or any recommendations for areas to live in? Any recommendations/advice would be very much appreciated!

    I also thought the cost per semester was at that link but I may be wrong

    Also I still didn't get anything about orientation... I'm going to have to ask about that at my advising meeting!

    I may have to take biomedical ethics from Rutgers also - it's not going well with the community college. I'm not sure how I'm going to pay for it either. Do you know how we register for those courses? I went online just to see if the course was open but it said I did not have permission to register. For me, personally, I am probably going to choose all regular courses. This is an accelerated degree as it is and I don't want anything to screw up my GPA, since I know at some point I want to pursue graduate school for nursing. I also know that it is unlikely I will go to graduate school at Rutgers, and I have been in a situation before where a school did not want to take my transfer course because it wasn't their course. But that's just me. I'm sure, for some people, the advanced option is better.

    Rutgers-Camden Accelerated BSN Fall 2015

    So I met with the person graduating from the program this semester. Her first semester was at the Stratford campus since they were still with UMDNJ. For their second semester, everything was switched to Rutgers-Camden. For their class especially, because of the school change, it was very unorganized to begin with. She does think it will be better for us since the program is now established at Rutgers-Camden. Overall she enjoyed the program - especially since you finish in 15 months. She said the third semester is the hardest and the last semester is the easiest. There is a communication problem at Rutgers-Camden, there are some people in the nursing school that just don't e-mail back. That is what it is, but you still end up getting everything you need. It's definitely a lot of work, the days she wasn't in class were spent studying. There were growing pains, but it seems like they're working through them and it's at least better then when that particular class started. I actually feel better after speaking with her about it. She said to leave early for class and clinical since there was always traffic (her and I are from the somers point area) moreso for class since clinical started so early she usually left by 5:30ish . Also, she said it was really helpful for her class to have a facebook group so I made a group for our cohort. You can find it at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1587944851447477/. The name is "Rutgers-Camden Accelerated Nursing 2015-2016"

    I agree with you about the communication on Rutger's end. I'll definitely let you know what she says. I think I'm meeting with her on Tuesday

    Ok- I'll try that. Thank you! I'm actually having coffee next week with someone who is graduating from the program this semester. She works as a tech at the local hospital here. If you have any specific questions I'd be happy to ask her.
