    I was at bedside then went ambulatory and am now going back to bedside. I thought I was done at bedside and doing all those things but it made me realize I missed ICU to my core. So, back I go. I like having days off to myself versus every day I ge...
  2. I don't love the ICU. Want to go back to Med/Surg?

    It's absolutely OK to feel like this. I left ICU a year ago to do OP m-F 9 to 5, basically. I missed ICU so much but I couldn't keep up with rotating shifts, they were killing me. I have worked med surg in a small critical access facility and ICU ...

  10. How can I make Rocephin I'm hurt less???

  12. Best nurse brain sheet?

    Yeah. I put access under thr assessment and meds/ infusions on the right. But I don't use it anymore. I did my first six months. Now it's folded napkin?
  13. Best nurse brain sheet?

    What I created is able to be in a tri-fold. The left side is for labs the middle is for your notes for your abnormals on your assessment and then there admission reason is at the top. On the right hand side is basically you're rounding so if they hav...
