  1. Hello all, I am in a PMHNP program at Gonzaga University and I find myself in a bind. I had a preceptor who graciously agreed to precept me but had to pull out at the last minute due to the organization she works suspending preceptorships for th...
  2. PMHNP in Other Countries?

    Hello! I'm in a PMHNP program and I'm exploring if opportunities exist outside of the United States to practice in this (or similar) role. So far I can't find any other countries. Does anyone know of other areas with this type of advanced practice ro...
  3. Conflict with Charge - 6 Month Review

    I've been feeling a lot more empowered as a result of this thread! It looks like, per our organizational chart, that the charge is not above me in any way. It appears she is exercising false authority. I'm relieved to know I should never have to, "o...
  4. Conflict with Charge - 6 Month Review

    Yes, this is true.
  5. Conflict with Charge - 6 Month Review

    Oh no, I never did anything without a physician order without getting an order from the actual physician, even when pressured to not contact the physician. The time I referred to regarding stepping outside of policy and being overrided by charge and ...
  6. Conflict with Charge - 6 Month Review

    I have not practiced outside my license. I have refused when the charge has told me to order and administer meds without talking to the doctor. The only times I have gone along with anything outside of policy is when the charge and house supervisor o...
  7. Conflict with Charge - 6 Month Review

    CanadianAbroad - Thank you for sharing your mom's story. I'm sorry she went through something so horrific! I'm so pleased to hear everything ended in her favor. I'll remember her story. I know I haven't been in the field all that long, but this is t...
  8. Conflict with Charge - 6 Month Review

    Thanks for the feedback! It's true, it's very tempting for me to try to find another job. I'll keep other prospects on my radar in the background in the meantime. Cowboyardee - thank you for the extra thoughtful response, it was very helpful in allo...
  9. Hello! I'm six months in as a night RN in a small community hospital on a med-surg floor. The majority of my first three years nursing experience were at a large level one trauma center in another state. Transitioning to a 20-bed hospital with limite...
  10. Reporting a grievance and fear of retaliation

    An update: I decided not to complete the grievance process with the union. I went on two job interviews and received an offer for both. In the meantime, the manager was demoted and a new unit director was established. I put in my two weeks, and have ...
  11. Reporting a grievance and fear of retaliation

    Also an interesting point - however out of 10 external new-grad hires, five accepted full-time employment, and five accepted on-call positions. I figured it'd be easiest and more cost-effective to hire an experienced unit nurse into a full-time posit...
  12. Reporting a grievance and fear of retaliation

    The positions were definitely not posted anywhere for employees of the unit to see, nor did I notice them listed on our internal website. Very good advice. Since I'm keeping an eye open more carefully for jobs either way, I'll see if next time I can...
  13. Reporting a grievance and fear of retaliation

    Thank you for the continued feedback! :) Last week I made it a point prior to asking my manager if she hired anybody full-time, to ask directly if my continued on-call status amidst being called off so frequently was any reflection whatsoever of my p...
  14. Reporting a grievance and fear of retaliation

    Thank you to those who have taken the time to chime in. Very helpful feedback, perspective, and support. The union rep surprised me by scheduling a phone conversation tomorrow morning, so I'm in the process of compiling a list of questions. I will fi...
  15. Hello! I'm writing with the hope of helpful insight and feedback in effectively and safely addressing violations of union contract by my current manager. I'm a nurse with a few years experience who recently relocated to another state and was immediat...
