NursehoneyBeBe has 2 years experience.

I am a Med-Surg RN. I have been a nurse for 3 years. I love my profession and all the endless opportunities out there. Nursing is challenging, rewarding, depressing, uplifting, stressful, but overall worth it. I am a patient advocate, a leader, a change agent, team member, and very compassionate nurse. I am dedicated to my profession and to uplifting the profession of nursing. Every patient is special and they should always feel that way. #NurseStrong

    NYP Pharmacology Exam

    About two weeks after. You have a general orientation the first two days with all professions. Then you go to the nursing orientation about one week in class. They take you to do skills like Iv insertion and how to use their iv pumps, glucometers, tube feeding pumps. You learn their ehr and then you have your orientation on the floor.

    NYP Pharmacology Exam

    It really is a basic exam. Follow the study guide that they give you and also just go over topics related to what is on the study guide. Side effects were big on the test. Let me know how you did!

    Leaving NYP

    What is it that makes you feel unhappy and unsupported by management? What kind of safety issues are you facing that makes you want to leave? Have you taken any steps to make changes to any policies or speak with your union if any? I do hope you find what you are looking for in your new organization and congrats on landing a new position. Though sometimes the grass isn't much greener on the other side so I would try to find out from someone on the inside at the other place where you were hired to see if they are also facing those same issues.

    I need to vent!

    Stick it out for the four more months. It looks better on your resume and will give you a leg up when you go for your interviews. ICU experience is great to have but most places require at least 1 year of experience in your specialty. 2 hours is a long commute to work especially when you have to work two or three days in a row. I hope it all works out for you.

    I thought I was done crying and feeling incompetent

    You will make mistakes in your career especially being new. Give yourself credit that you are actually reflecting on them. This is a great thing because you're able to acknowledge that you were wrong, learned from it, and not repeat it in the future. Ask questions when you're unsure about something even if you get dirty looks from people. As long as you get your answer and your patients are safe that's all that matters.
  6. Taking picture is not allowed in my facility. There's a whole policy on it. We let the family members know that it is against hospital policy. But if they take it when no one is there we really can't control what they do because we can't confiscate their phones or anything. People post anything on fb and social media these days it's disgusting. Why they would even want to post a pic of the deceased is beyond me.

    Job Embeddedness

    That's awesome. I was at my previous job for 2+ years and politics from management and the workload caused me to start looking elsewhere. I've learned that if you can't fix it or make change then move on. Hopefully I've found a home here in my new job and this is where I'll move up the clinical ladder, explore many different areas, and retire.

    Thanks I really felt like quitting. I've been a long term looker for many years even before I became a nurse, looking for my first job, and interview tips for the job I just landed. I felt I should join and contribute for all that this forum has done in helping me. I really appreciate your positive words.

    Thanks. I'm just not a person who takes kindly to bullying and felt I should stand up for myself against these people. But you are right. I think if I continue I'm sure I will be wasting my time for days.

    Excuse me for not coming on the forum ranting about my bad days at work and how I hate my job. Excuse me for bringing up different "off the wall" topics.

    Ok good for you. I am not getting college credit either. To think I came on a nursing board to actually talk to professional nurses about topics I am interested in and all I am getting is backlash. Stop harassing me. Thanks.

    I would like to think I was very respectful before people started attacking me and calling me a student.

    Why does it matter if I'M the one that gets along with everyone. I came on here as a new member making my posts. Asking for advice in one post, trying to have meaningful conversations in this one, commenting on others posts and giving my opinions. So far everyone except a few has come on this post attacking me. I came to the general nursing discussion board and posted a general nursing topic for discussion.

    Thanks for the advice. I felt attacked and I was only trying to have a different discussion than ones I have seen on here.
