  1. good reading material for new Neuroscience RN

    Thank you!
  2. New Grad in Neuro ICU

    Rosie_one, thank your for that answer. I am not a new nurse, but I am new to neuro. I am starting a position in neuroscience ccu in just under 2 months. I am much more familiar with cardio, and am reading all I can about neuro before I start. Just fr...
  3. I just accepted a position in a Neuroscience CCU, and start in just under 2 months. In that time I would like to brush up on my med knowledge, procedures since many are done bedside, tPA, etc. Are there any books that you found helpful in your experi...
  4. so... i assisted in a code today... BUT

    Hi. I haven't read all the responses yet, so this may have been stated already. On my unit we assign a code team at the beginning of the shift, and announce it during our morning shift huddle. We run our own codes and RRT's. Only an anesthesiologist ...

  8. I am curious. Twenty two to 44 residents in a med pass? Are you confusing LTAC with LTC? (Or did the original poster possible mean LTC?) I work LTAC, which is long term acute care, and very different from long term care. I don't believe there is an L...
  9. New Grad Select Specialty Hospital

    I have experience with Select. It was my first RN job out of school, 5+ yrs ago. I went through an orientation period with a preceptor, I am sure that is what they are referring to. You will not be practicing alone. LTAC is hard work! In my location...
