  1. Safely working with patients with autism

    Hi everyone. I work on an acute care unit in a large hospital. In the past six months two of our staff have been injured to the point of needing to take leave, both by young adult males with autism. Both patients were at least minimally able to commu...
  2. Seeking info regarding Deaconess Hospital in Spokane, WA

    Deaconess is not represented by a union, and the nurse-to-patient ratios are higher than some other area hospitals.
  3. Applying for nursing school on antidepressants

    They can ask, you don't have to share. There are so, so many health professionals with depression, anxiety, and the like. As long as you have healthy coping mechanisms and patient care isn't affected, it shouldn't be a problem. If you were on a contr...
  4. New Nurse feeling very down

    I work at a union hospital, with our "competition" being non-union. I was hesitant about being unionized, especially when I saw the dues! I can't compare pay and benefits, but I can tell you that in general, nurse/patient ratios tend to be better in ...
  8. Searching for first RN job question!

    If med/surg is your ultimate goal (or next step), the rehab position will be a better experience. Most acute care positions are going to say "experience preferred," but apply anyway. Med/surg is often a starting ground for many new nurses, and depend...
  9. waiting to hear from an employer

    I would assume that if they haven't called yet, the answer is that you need to move on to other opportunities. Especially if there were only three interviewees for the position. If, for some reason, they are late in getting back to you, it doesn't hu...
