  1. What to do about DNP and flu shot?

    Enjoy your new career!

    Working inpatient with the REALLY sick patients will give you an appreciation for the "normal" psych patient, e.g. depression, anxiety, bipolar. I had a guy partially cut his toe off because he used to hurt animals (losing a toe was his "punishment")...

  4. Safety with dangerous pts

    You need medication orders for patient behavior. Benadryl 50mg, Ativan 2mg, Haldol 10mg or geodon IM injections or perhaps IM Zyprexa would benefit you greatly. The solution is you need psych drugs or withdrawal medications to treat these people and ...
  5. Inmate patients- keeping the guard happy too

    Just because there is a law about not smoking on the law books concerning prisoners doesn't mean that it doesn't happen. It's called contraband and some prisoners can get whatever they want-for a price. Who smuggles contraband in...guards. Including ...

  7. Just finished the MSN/Informatics

  9. I'm doing it as a new grad nurse. I will be cross-trained in peds, adult, and chemical dependency. Eventually I get to avoid geriatrics-yay! I can't wait!

    Having recently taken the NCLEX, I can tell you that my school taught us to know, V-fib, V-tach, asystole, AF and a few others. None of those were asked. What was asked was "what would you do about..." pictures. One of my correct answers was to "go c...
  11. Is this reportable to the BON?

    ^This. Hospitals should have a number for corporate compliance”. They really want to know about employees using facility resources without permission, you can report it anonymously. This not a call for BON.
  12. Good online NP school for a non nursing bachelors degree

    Northern Kentucky university: More About the Master of Science in Nursing Program: Northern Kentucky University, Greater Cincinnati Region (look under admission requirements and then scroll down to bottom of page) You take two courses: concepts of pr...
  13. Is it okay for RN to ask recovery patients not to swear?

    Unprofessional. Who are you to dictate a person's reaction to pain and anesthesia? Everyone reacts differently.
  14. How do you deal with verbally abusive pts?

    So, I was reading an article about "difficult" NH patients who get admitted to the hospital and the NH refuses to take them back...Bingo #options Nursing homes turn to eviction to drop difficult patients
  15. Moving into ICU, but don't intend to stay

    ^^^ This I have a solution, do not tell them your plans to become CRNA. This is why you are not getting the jobs. Tell them you want to gain more exp with sicker patients as a long term goal. Use your employer, because they are sure gonna use you!
