    Narcotic discrepancy

    hey everyone. So I am freaking out over my first narcotic discrepancy. I'm not 100 percent sure what happened because I don't work until Friday but the only thing I can think of is that I forgot to scan the medication which is not like me at all. It was my 4th shift in a row which I do not like to do and have told them so I'm assuming it was just a rough night but it was from all the way from the first week of October so I'd have to review the chart. I haven't spoke to my manager yet but she just said fill out this form and return it to her. I'm so upset though and also fear I'll get another because a couple weeks ago I was helping a fellow nurse while she took break and gave a dose of methadone to her patient. I didn't know until I pulled the medication that she only needed half the dose and I marked I'd waste later. I totally get distracted and threw the medication in the sharps after giving half and forgot to waste until the next day I noticed I had an undocumented waste. Luckily the Pyxis told me or I would've forgotten but it was such a large gap since o was the next day. Will I get fired over this? I'm almost 7 months pregnant with 3 kids already and the only one working right now so I am on the verge of an anxiety attack. Any advice would be appreciated.

    I just wanted advice, I applied to this college for midwifery school and did not get accepted. Any advice on if I should reapply or just give up? They won't give me a reason.

    Can't land a job on labor and delivery

    Just be confident and show you are interested. Ask lots of questions and ask to shadow afterwards. I've been there 8 weeks and I'm still so overwhelmed. I thought my year in oncology and year in medsurg would help me but it's been rough. I still love it though. Good luck (:

    It's amazing. It's so much to learn and I'm honestly overwhelmed but it feels good to finally do something I knew I'd love!

    I submitted the application. I'm so nervous to hear back! I applied for the fall. I finally got my labor and delivery job as well! I start in 2 weeks and I cannot wait. This is truly my passion.

    Well I ended up having 4 different hospitals open up. 2 were an hour away and the other 2 were close. One was at the hospital I'm already working for just another unit. I got 2 offers! I chose the hospital I'm working for since it's a transfer and I am beyond ecstatic!

    Thank you so much, this was very encouraging. I actually have an interview next week with a hospital about 40 minutes away! I feel like it'd be worth it. I have 3 kiddos so that will be a little hard but I know I'm not too far! I'm not sure if I'll get it but do you have any interview advice maybe for this? I'll definitely look into BF classes, I only know BF from personal experience, I've fed all 3 of my children that way and I'm actually currently still BF my 7 month old. I also do have ACLS!

    Can't land a job on labor and delivery

    Hi everyone, I am trying very hard to land a job on the labor and delivery unit. I live in an area where I only have 2 choices for this floor and the turn over is low. I apply as soon as I notice an opening but I've only been lucky enough to get 1 interview. This interview was almost 4 weeks ago and I followed up but she said she is still doing interviews. I don't feel like I got the job though and i'm very bummed. I've been a nurse going on 3 years and have to take jobs that I'm honestly not interested in. I love nursing as a whole but I truly want to be where I feel I belong. I finally joined AWOHNN yesterday and I'm currently looking for a place to get my NRP certification to hopefully boost my chances. There are about 2 other hospitals about an hour away that I'm considering applying to but I don't want to travel since I won't be getting the "traveling salary" and I have 3 kids. Any advice would seriously be appreciated. I need to get this job. ): -Brittany

    Hi everyone, I am trying very hard to land a job in the labor and delivery unit. I only have 2 hospitals within my area unless I plan to travel out about an hour. I interviewed for one locally (still haven't heard back going on 4 weeks) and I don't feel too good about it. I was sick with mastitis but did not want to cancel since the week before I showed up for the interview and waited and they had me reschedule due to getting busy. I am very bummed and wish I would've postponed. Anyway, I have zero experience in this field even though I've always wanted to do it but I have 3 kids so I had to take the jobs I was offered right out of college. I joined AWOHNN and now I am looking into taking the NRP certification course to at least show how I am very dedicated to this field. Any advice on where I can take this course? Thank you so much for any advice! -Brittany
