    Covid and Hospitals: How are things now?

    Sadly once this got politicized that ship sailed.

    Which nurse is easier to train in med surg?

    Well, my reply would have been entirely different, at least part of it.

    Or she could have been a rock star HH nurse who is more up to date on EBP than your hospital. Entirely depends on the person. Also HH is not for the faint of heart or mind. Unlike med-surg nurses, they take care of complicated patients with absolutely no back up. You might need to re-frame your opinion of them as it does not come across well.

    I do and frankly it's the worst. I wouldn't wish this on anybody.

    Working Less Than 8-Hour Shifts?

    I'm seriously not trying to tinkle in your Wheaties but I think a reality check is in order. You want day shift, set days, 6 hour shifts, 6 days a week (with a place to shower) and I just don't think you're going to find this unicorn in nursing. I mean, you might, but most places are just not going to yield to this very specific set of demands.

    Student Nurse Internship in Emergency

    I precepted many students in the ED. They did everything that I did (unless it required certification like US placed PIVs). You can expect to do it all, from cleaning patients up to assisting with intubations and doing chest compressions. Be prepared though...ED nurses are pretty no-nonsense so the hand-holding will be minimal. It will be terrifying at first but trust that your preceptor will not let you sink so just get in there and do stuff. You are going to have a blast.
