    Why do I always look high at work?

    Thank you so much everyone! I'm going to make another appointment with an ophthalmologist, and until then I'll try out some of the drops that have been recommended!

    Why do I always look high at work?

    Hello! So I've been having this issue basically since I started nursing school, and I'm looking for advice. Whenever I go to clinical or have a 12 hr shift at work, my eyes are SO red. They feel a little strained, but it's more of the redness that is bothering me. I just started a new CNA job at an amazing hospital, and I feel like people think I'm high at work... It's that bad. I don't wear contacts. I visited an ophthalmologist last year, but he said everything looked normal and gave me eyedrops (which didn't end up helping). I'm thinking maybe I'm allergic to something in hospitals, or the harsh lighting is hurting my eyes. I know I'm tired during a 12 hr shift, but I feel like my eyes shouldn't be bloodshot everyday at work! My ophthalmologist told me it's not a big deal as long as they don't hurt/affect my vision. But every time I go to the bathroom during my shift and I see them in the mirror, I get so embarrassed. I look tired AF and honestly like I'm drunk or high. I've tried lots of eyedrops, but I'm still open to suggestions. I've heard the "red eye" eye drops aren't the best for your eyes, and the "dry eyes" drops aren't doing it for me. Anyone else struggling with this?? Advice would be greatly appreciated!!

    New Grads path to L&D

    Hey there! So I'm going to be graduating this May, and more than anything I want to work in L&D! I've seen some people saying their L&D unit loves to hire new grads, and others saying it's impossible. I've looked at L&D job postings in my area and it seems like sadly they all want atleast a year of experiance. I'm wondering if doing my preceptorship in L&D will be worth it, considering I likely won't be able to start off there. My question is does your unit hire new grads? if not, what floors do they hire from most? What would prepare me most? And how did you get your start in L&D? Thank you
  5. I know this is late but I go to Simmons in Boston for nursing, and MCPHS does not have the best reputation. NCLEX passing rate is less than impressive and they have trouble getting into good clinicals. I would look at Northeastern, and then Simmons and BC if you want to be in boston.
