  1. Im sorry but its not the unit for you. And thats OK. You need to find a slower paced unit as they are suggesting.

    Tell me your experience as a PNP

    Hello! I am planning on applying to NP school and I want to specialize in pediatrics. I currently work in peds hem/onc. I wanted to be able to speak with Pediatric NPs about their job roles. I encourage everyone to share how they like their job, what level of acuity they work in, what a day-in-the-life looks like and so forth. Please share! :) I appreciate it!

    Lpn to Rn in 6months

    @Darp7288 and @Born2BAnurse look up this schools stats with the board of nursing. Check to see how many students from this "school" sit to take the test. If it is like 5 or so that is a huge red flag. Do your research.

    @Born2BAnurse Because its a random sketchy school that doesnt have many students. Just go to a college

    Nurse Managers: Showing initiative, or being creepy?

    Dont do it! Some recruiters may view your profile or connect... Just dont do it first!

    Interviewing blues

    I graduated in may 2019 too with my RN. Even with my LPN experience I didnt get an offer until just a month ago. It is hard. But you have to continue on. I myself went through a good handful of interviews. I made the mistake of not really sharpening my resume to focus on what i wanted (peds), and actually displaying my clinical rotations too. I fine tuned my interveiwing skills by practicing with a friend on my typical answers for common interview questions. Dont memorize answers, speak from the heart. Sometimes who you knows matters as well... See if there is someone who works at a hospital that may be hiring, and ask for their managers contact info. It doesnt hurt!

    New Grad Residency Application...What should I do?

    Keep this experience on your resume!!!!! Its great! The experience of vents, trachs, and gtubes all coincides with NICU skills. Dont worry about them thinking negatively about your job you have now. You dont need to justify availability. However, you may have to give more time to the new grad program that you get into. When that time comes you can make your decision of what you would like to do with your private duty case. Good luck!
  8. @3ricaaa I used to do pediatric home health. Some of the cases can be pretty laid back with the nursing care they require. You can make a schedule of 1 or two patients that you see in a week. Then theres also home health wound care. Another avenue is wellness nursing.

    Advice for a New Pediatric Hematology/Oncology RN

    Oh my gosh @DisneyNurseGal I am sorry it took so long for me to see your response!!! I never got a notification ! Thank you so much for your perspective. As an LPN I did home health with peds, so the whole time throughout RN school I knew I would want to work in peds in the hospital setting. Also, I did 3 months of crisis care hospice as an LPN. My RN preceptorship was with a peds hem/onc RN and I knew it was a speciality I would consider with peds. I know I am going to have to find the balance where I make sure I am doing self care. And yes, of course with the boundaries! It can be a fine line between professional and personal boundaries especially with these special patients... but yes it is necessary. Regarding death and dying... I think I can say that I am comfortable talking about it. I know overall this is going to be a very new, eye-opening, experience for me. I know Ill learn a lot. Im excited and honored to start this journey.
  10. Well you do know that nursing has many options! You don't have to work in a rehab, or hospital setting! Dont give up, look into the different settings you can work in!
  11. You are very upset right now, projecting the feelings you have about yourself. Take your own advice: Grow up and move on.

    Thinking of Quitting Nursing School

    @Horseshoe Of course some people only go in for the money (not sure if those are the best nurses). I was responding to someone who was suggesting that if the OP didnt need the money then to focus on her kids. As if that is the only reason.

    HELP care plan

    Look up what the risks/complications that are associated with vaginal births after c-section. Base your plan on that. Think about the possibility of emergency C-section and what that may entail.
