    Late to clinical

    Have multiple alarms in different locations. I have my alarm clock next to me, and multiple alarms set on my cell phone that I place somewhere across the room. This way, I physically have to WAKE UP, GET UP, and WALK over to my phone to turn it off. Otherwise, it will keep ringing until I do so.
  2. As a new grad RN myself, I am always curious about what experienced nurses would want to tell a younger version of themselves. If you could give one piece of advice back when you were a new grad RN, what would it be?

    Most Burned Out Nursing Specialties?

    Hello allnurses, I recently came across a report by Medscape that surveyed 15,000 physicians and outlined the highest rates of burnout by medical specialty (https://www.medscape.com/slideshow/2018-lifestyle-burnout-depression-6009235). This got me wondering, is there a report similar to this for nursing? What are your picks anecdotally for most burned out specialties and why?

    Worst Nursing Scrub Color Worn?

    Bright yellow as a student! The only positive for wearing bright yellow scrubs was when our clinical groups met for the 1st time each semester, our professors could easily point us out amongst all the other schools that usually wore more common colors (e.g. Navy, Black).
  5. Hello allnurses, I am located in California and graduated with my BSN last September. It's no secret the struggle that is finding your 1st RN job after graduation, especially in California and just as I was mentally and emotionally preparing to have to leave the state, I was fortunate enough to be offered a position in 4 different units. The problem is, I like all 4 and don't necessarily have a preference. The units are: General Telemetry Cardiac Telemetry Stroke Telemetry Med/Surg Ortho My overall goal at the moment is just to become a safe and competent nurse and learn as much as I possibly can. I know there is no such thing as a "best unit" and I will learn a lot wherever I go. However, I wanted to seek your opinions on what YOU would personally choose and perhaps share your thoughts if you have any personal experience on one of the respective units.
