    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!
  4. Hello, i was wondering if anyone has heard back from UCHealth this week regarding their Nurse Residency Program for July/August 2019?

    Nursing student looking for a job at a hospital. Any advice?

    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 needed. I was really bummed but I have my original job (a retail position) anyway. So, because of the open communication with the HR recruiter, when another spot for my current position was available, the HR recruiter decided to call me first since we had been in contact with each other. My best advice, call in after about a weeks time to check in on your application and see what they say. If they are unable to provide you with an interview, just thank them for the opportunity.

    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 chose to see a knee replacement. It was a pretty cool experience. I was able to watch everything from the first cut to the last stitch. I didn't even get queasy seeing all the blood or hearing the saw cut the bones. I was able to meet my patient in pre-op and followed the entire surgery through post-op and to the unit where I continued to care for the patient until my clinical day was completed. I would give anything to go through that experience again.

    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 would strive in a field that serves others (like medicine/ nursing). Anyone else with this personality type?

    Charles Cullen and Other Healthcare Serial Killers

    It is so interesting that this post is on here. I am currently reading The Good Nurse by Charles Graeber which is about Charles Cullen and his serial killings. I highly recommend reading this book! I can't put it down.

    Hospice Rotation for Clinical

    Hello, I wanted to post to this forum hoping to get some insight from fellow hospice nurses (or any nurses who deal with very sick and dying patients and their family). I will be having a hospice rotation on Monday. If anyone could provide some tips and advice (maybe some kind of reading material or websites to look over) for a student nurse when observing with a nurse (i will not be providing any care), it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Practicum Senior Year

    Hello, I just wanted to start a discussion about where you chose your senior year practicum and what were the benefits and cons to the unit you picked. I have been struggling with myself on where I want to pick because I have told myself many times that I want to become a NICU nurse; however, I have not begun my maternal/baby class yet. I am currently a junior student in a 4 year program and have only completed foundations and Med-surg clinicals. My med-surg clinical this past Fall semester gave us the opportunity to rotate to critical care areas (ICU, CVICU, and the PACU). I really enjoyed my time in the ICU and have been thinking about being a regular ICU nurses instead of a NICU nurse. Again, I just want to know your experiences in the unit you picked for your senior practicum. Thank you, Samm

  12. in my school these were two different classes. You had Growth and Development (which is mandatory for all nursing students) and then there was Developmental Psychopathology (which was considered a level 300 elective course toward your psych major/minor). I enjoyed both classes.

    CHOP Nurse Externship (Summer 10-week’s)

    I have looked over the website for the details but I was hoping to gain insight on personal experiences.
  15. Hello everybody, I recently became informed about a Nurse Externship at the Children's Hospital of Philedelphia for 10-weeks in the summer of 2018. My questions are has anyone completed this kind of Externship at this hospital and if so how did you benefit from from this experience? (Also, was it a paid Externship? If you are not from the area do they pay for housing?) Thank you.
