    Introducing #SilentNoMore

    Just punched at work the other day trying to pass meds. I shrugged it off because unfortunately alot of my jobs have had a certain amount of violence. In my mind I know people who have had it worse and I have never felt like my life was in danger. My heart goes out to the nurses that work in areas with high incidents of violence. This issue definitely needs to be addressed.

    New grad pay rate in Orlando

    So I have to add what I have learned. I have an offer in Orlando from a level 1 trauma in ICC part of the full time variable flex pool. Now I already worr at a SNF making $27.50 and after 3pm another $1. They are only offering $25.75, which is a slap in the face. Tenet and HCA are starting new grads at $ 27-$28. Orlando by comparison to the rest of Florida has crappy pay. Another place in Orlando only offered $24.

    Everyone is white?

    I live in Florida and worked at a 503c healthcare organization, where there were no black people in upper management. Despite the fear mongering that goes on in our country, 73% of our country is still majority white. And some people get upset because that includes Hispanics/Latinos, but Spain is in Europe. So you can meet alot of Hispanics/Latinos with a high percentage of European ancestry not to mention it shows in their phenotype. Back to my old job it was super racist and with very few black nurses. I am wary of companies that don't even have a floor supervisor of another race. Because I doubt their aren't other races with the education or experience applying. But racism is insidious and people don't want to talk about it but it is often reflected in every day life( like your job). Even with the Asian nurses as someone mentioned, alot of them have told me horror stories about prejudice and discrimination they have experienced. I got a right to sue from the EEOC regarding my old job. People that have privilege, won't understand your post because they have never dealt with the macro and micro-aggresions people of color experience due to racism,prejudice and discrimination.

    I need help

    I am odd person out here but I studied for 13 hours a day leading up to boards. Iistened to Klimek and did Uworld. For Uworld I did 200 questions a day, five days a week. And I would go over the rationales for questions I didn't get correct. I also would go over questions that I did get correct but wasn't sure why. I re-worded the ones that I didn't get correct into my own words and wrote them on flashcards. I passed boards in 2 hours with 75 questions. I have severe test anxiety, so this regimen may seem excessive.

    Took NCLEX twice and failed

    I'm so sorry but don't give up. I listened to Mark Klimek and than did Uworld. Mark Klimek helped me change the way I look at things. When I started Uworld it prepared me to answer the questions. If you are failing than somewhere you aren't getting the basics. I just took the test this week and passed with 75 questions. I recognized concepts on NCLEX from Uworld. I would say Picmonic to help you get the basics. I didn't use it to study but it delivers information in a simple concise manner. You can do this, stay encouraged.

    New grad pay rate in Orlando

    You could be right but that is what he claims. And I see no reason for him to lie.

    New grad pay rate in Orlando

    This is low ball and not competitive at all, I know a new grad making $36 an hour. Granted I don't know if they did years of service for previous medical experience.

    My First Nursing Job!

    I graduate in June and wanted to go to ICU, but at my school they have discouraged us from doing so. What made you feel that you could handle the responsibility of being an ICU nurse? I have struggled with this as they are telling us to go to a Tele floor before we do any critical care. I spent most of my critical care rotation in CVICU and I loved it actually I loved all the various ICUs. But I don't want to sink trying to swim.

    Another Tragedy at Vanderbilt

    I find discourse with you untenable, have a goodnight.

    Another Tragedy at Vanderbilt

    That's a simplified version of why I don't believe she should be charged with reckless homicide.

    This isn't the only site with a rating system and you are taking something personally if you consider someone using a rating for its intended purpose as "childish". I rated it disagree because I disagree with your comment.

    Thanks I'll remember that, have a goodnight. And it's a rating try not to be so thin skinned and take everything personally.

    Another Tragedy at Vanderbilt

    She was negligent, in order for reckless homicide to be what occurred she had to intentionally or knowingly give the wrong medicine. She did neither of those things. She did negligently override the necessary safe guard. And yes due to her negligent behavior a patient died. She was trying to pull Versed and put the name brand name instead of the generic, it was unintentionally done and fits more into negligence.

    I seriously cannot believe that people want that nurse to go to prison for manslaughter. What she did was negligent, definitely not manslaughter. And if she is convicted of manslaughter it's going set a dangerous precedent for nurses as far as case law goes. Regarding the Verconium incident she was honest from the beginning, Vanderbilt hid the truth from the family for months. Despite that fact some how that nurse is going to be a scapegoat for manslaughter instead of negligence. There's alot wrong with this situation.
