EDboundSN has 5 years experience as a EMT-B and specializes in the Emergency Department.

I'm a California native, born and raised in Orange County.  I am currently in my last semester of the ABSN program at the California State University San Marcos.  After graduation, I will be accepting a position in Nashville, TN in an Emergency Room of a local Trauma Center.  I have 1.5 years experience as an Emergency Room Technician working in two ER's, one of which was a Level II Trauma Center.  Other healthcare experience includes working as an EMT-B on an emergency response ambulance.  My former Bachelors Degree is in Business Management/Accounting.

    TriStar Nurse Residency Summer 2020

    I know some hospitals end up making a FB group for cohorts, but I made a FB group for all hospitals for people starting in new grad programs, especially for those moving to the area. Feel free to join if you're going to be a new grad! https://www.facebook.com/groups/214924516428923/?source=unknown

    Vanderbilt Summer 2020 Nurse Residency

    Is anyone really familiar with the Nashville area that could PM so I could ask some questions about locations to live? Would greatly appreciate it!
  4. I guess people were trying to tell me that using lesser PPE (masks) simply because the appropriate PPE (N95) isn't available doesn't justify putting your health and safety as risk, especially if the hospital does have N95's available but is not giving them out. Again - not my opinion, that's why I was seeking other opinions.
  5. I agree. I have a background in military and law enforcement though, so putting myself at risk to help others has always been in my character. But other's don't necessarily agree, so I was curious others opinions and legality of it all.

    Yeah Pearson Vue closed testing centers until mid April nationwide.

    Just out of curiosity, have they said anything about potentially delaying cohorts due to covid?

    COVID-19: Pearson VUE test cancellation

    So when do you realistically expect testing centers to reopen and hospitals to start allow new grads again? Summer? Fall? Next year?
  9. I'm a senior nursing student and this debate arose with a couple of my classmates and me. I work as an ER tech and they work as patient care techs on the floor. As of right now, CDC guidelines state for PPE: So basically CDC is saying wear an N95 if you have it, but if you don't, wear a surgical mask until you can get an N95. So if you have a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 patient, and all you have is a surgical mask and no N95, can you refuse to take care of that patient? Do you face any legal repercussions or potential fallout from your employer if you do refuse? Asking not only about tech positions, but RN positions as well.
  10. Not at all, just that there’s a lot more politics, legality, and red tape today than there was in 1918. Don’t get me wrong I really want to graduate on time and help and do my part, but I don’t know how many corners if any they’re gonna cut to allow it. For example, many of the nursing schools in CA are petitioning to the governor to increase the cap of 75% clinical time and 25% lab time to 50/50 to make up hours lost by hospitals kicking students out. But I don’t know if that’s going to fly with the governor.
  11. Haha, interesting but it’s not 1918
  12. https://www.ocregister.com/2020/03/13/coronavirus-fallout-schools-seek-change-to-graduate-nursing-students-on-time/ According to that article, as it stands in CA, cancelled clinicals will delay nursing graduates.
  13. At this point I don’t even think I’m graduating let alone having a ceremony.
  14. Yeah I mean they’re not going to fail us but I foresee them putting our program on hold until further notice, thus delaying my graduation in 8 week. best of luck with getting it all done.
  15. Two days ago my campus, a California state university, cancelled in person classes and moved everything including nursing tk online. Yesterday they told us we would still attend clinicals. Today clinicals were cancelled.
  16. Wondering if there are any programs out there who have had their Spring 2020 graduation delayed or cancelled due to COVID 19? My school of nursing has recommended to instructors to move all lecture to online. No mandates yet; however, other schools of nursing in the area have already required classes to be moved online. No clinicals have been cancelled; however, the school of nursing is working with the BRN to figure out if clinical is cancelled, how the hours will be made up. While it isn't official word, I was told by the SoN that more than likely our ceremony will be cancelled, even if we are able to graduate on time in May. Wondering if anyone else is going through similar issues of potentially delayed or cancelled graduation dates due to inability to finish classes or clinical hours between now and graduation?
