  1. UCHealth Nurse Residency July/August 2019

    I don’t know if it’s required unless you apply specifically for their new grad residency program.
  2. New nurse advice

    Typically primary lines should have a separate connector cap where you can push meds and saline flushes through. If not, then yes you need to disconnect the line, flush with saline, push med, and flush with a new saline syringe before reconnecting th...
  3. Very First Nursing Job

    I’m working in a small community hospital on a surgical/acuity adaptable unit (we can take Med-Surg and IMC level patients). I’m going into week 3 of being on the unit with my preceptor (for about 1.5 months I’ll be day shift and then the rest of ori...
  4. The Worst Interview of My Life! Ever!

    Personally I don't think it was her business whether i was going to live with a boyfriend or with family. I don't think that should matter when it comes to getting a job. It's not her concern, in my opinion, who or where I live, as long as i make it ...
  5. The Worst Interview of My Life! Ever!

    Had an interview with a director of a department and was told to my face that I'm a risk because I planned on moving near the location with my boyfriend. I was then asked if i researched cost of living in the area because their department lost some g...
  6. New Graduate

  10. UCHealth Nurse Residency July/August 2019

    I am still waiting on a reply as well. I received an email a couple weeks ago saying that they will make a decision for interviews the week of May 13th (this current week), I have yet to hear anything. Good Luck!
  11. Hello, i was wondering if anyone has heard back from UCHealth this week regarding their Nurse Residency Program for July/August 2019?
  12. When I originally applied for my current position, I didn't hear about about a possible interview for about 3 weeks. In that 3rd week I called HR and checked on my application and they informed me that at the time they already hired the staff they ne...
  13. Help me pick a surgery to observe!!

    I'm sure my response is late considering it's already June, however, I had the opportunity to observe a surgery as well. I was able to pick between a hip replacement and knee replacement since we were learning about rehab nursing in med-surg III. I c...
  14. Meyers Brigg, Have you done it?

    I am a Senior nursing student and just took this test out of curiosity after reading this post. My result is ISFJ: "The Defender". All descriptions of this personality type are spot on for me. Part of the description states that my personality type w...
