    Richmond area ?

    Hello! I will be looking for work anywhere within an hour of Richmond, come spring. Most of my nursing experience is in ICU. I also have some pre/post op and OR experience. I'd love to bridge over to CVICU at some point for something new and differen...

    Is it like this everywhere now?

    Yep. Daily occurrence. Worse most days, actually, because new MUSTS are added weekly or previous musts are changed. This is why many nurses leave the hospital, bedside, go back to school or leave nursing. It's too much. Everything happening each week...

    Expiration date checks on supplies

    Sounds like an incident happened with expired products? 🤔 That's unacceptable. If you're an RN, that is also a senseless waste of your patient care time, when this task could be delegated to a tech or other support staff. Even if you are a tech/...

    Notified of call before being on call

    The policy should have clearly defined what is to happen during call situations, which it obviously didn't, considering it "couldn't be found" by the manager. I would guess that the manager knew their actions could be considered inappropriate, but wa...

    Nurse Gives Lethal Dose of Vecuronium Instead of Versed

    We have nurses like this in both the hospitals I've been in. They are referred to as "SWAT" nurses. The acronym can mean different things. They are essentially a resource nurse, or circulating nurse, that goes to all floors and provides any needed as...

    Anyone in Duluth area?

    Thank you for the input! St. Luke's is a significantly smaller entity than Essentia, and I think that might be a good starting point for working in the area. I've been to Essentia a few times visiting people they were caring for, and I really wasn't ...

    Anyone in Duluth area?

    I have been considering a move that would place me with a nice commute to either Essentia or St. Lukes. Can anyone here give me some insight into differences between the two, wages, benefits etc.? St. Lukes doesn't offer any look at wages online that...

    Taking my first science class

    I am a visual/tactile learner. Getting my hands on models and watching videos of how everything comes together worked well for me. I loved using Khan academy for studying, and lab models. Making flashcards or using premade cards was helpful too. I wa...
