    Antepartum nurses pls

    To experienced nurses who care for antepartum patients: Is it safe and reasonable to expect a nurse who has only mother/baby experience to take an antepartum patient with no prior experience with antepartum and any possible complications with antepartum?

    Thinking about quitting (yes, one of these)

    Actually I wasn't "steering" her anywhere. She was looking for viewpoints not judgements. I was looking for neither. Life decisions aren't always so cut and dry so that one just "quit"s at the drop of a hat before considering other options.

    Thinking about quitting (yes, one of these)

    I want to encourage you. I have to be honest. I developed anxiety when I became a nurse. A major panic attack was my introduction to residual generalized anxiety after a shift on the floor. Nursing is stressful. Ive learned how to overcome anxiety without long term medications, but if you are keen to trying medications, it might be very helpful to you before you make any other decisions. I've been contemplating leaving nursing off and on for years, and that's ok. Dont let others make you feel bad if you decide nursing is not for you.

    Good Specialty for full time RV'er

    I've decided to live for experiences and travel while working as a nurse. Are there any non-bedside specialties that would support this goal? I'm aware of travel nursing, but prefer non-bedside nursing. I asked about telephone case management but didn't get many responses.

    Telephone case management, full time rv'er

    yes, compact states. the internet connection is pretty strong.
  6. To all case managers who actually work from home, do you think it's feasible to do this as a full time rv'er as long as i have a dedicated office in my rv with phone, internet, etc.?

    Family members recording nurses doing pt teaching

    Thank you. This specific situation was not discharge teaching, and the recording was being done by an uncle on his phone. The patient had some issues one normally wouldnt want disclosed to anyone else. Of course I didnt discuss that in front of them. Also, there was a family member who, upon arrival to the room came out and demanded the charge nurse move them to a bigger room, and took down the name of the charge nurse because they were unhappy with the size of the room. Yes, the main teaching is printed and given to the pt as reference.

    Family members recording nurses doing pt teaching

    Actually if you read back, I never refused anyone anything. I said I personally dont want to be recorded, and its not for discharge teaching, nor am I interested in "making it more likely" that they won't remember discharge teaching. My question was if anyone's hospital has policies in place on recording in patient rooms.
  9. I am not interested in being on someone's phone recording on a personal level. So for family members who take it upon themselves to record patient teaching, I itch to ask them to stop. My hospital has no policy in place, does anyone else's? Naturally we know there's no recording during surgery or anything like that.

    I came down with suspected C diff

    So to have a tooth pulled my dentist put me on an antibiotic. I ended up in the ER where they told me they suspected I have C diff and sent me home on PO flagyl and cipro. I was fortunately off for a few days. I have to go to work tonight. I'm scared. I've decided I won't eat at work tonight. By the time I make it to work, I'll have taken my abx for the day and my probiotic. Just wanted to know if any other nurses put in this situation and what your outcome is.

    Transition from bedside nursing to case management

    I'm curious to know how it's been going. I'm now interested into going into case management. Pros cons, things you miss about bedside?
