    Advice for new traveler

    Just signed my first contract thirteen weeks and I am fine with that. I am a 2 year RN so I am not the best and know everything but if anyone can give me advice to service a new area please feel free. I am in PCU nightshift position. Just wondering if you don't know something will they cut your contract etc.

    New to travel Nursing

    I am going into travel nursing, not just for covid crisis response but am I wrong to believe that you can make more money travel versus being a staff nurse. Covid response won't last forever but I have no family and want to do whatever it takes to make more income. any suggestions is appreciated.

    Short notice

    I accepted a position on a unit med surg and the floor is just not for me. it was my mistake but mostly because I never shadowed the unit due to covid. I was offered an ICU job with a very large company versus the current smaller one. ICU has been a dream goal for a long time of mine. I never been one to job hope but after 1 month this unit is just not for me. how can I explain that and email my boss letting her know my 2 weeks. has anyone else has a situation like this during covid? how did you handle it. I really cannot turn down a chance to get an ICU position. not too mention the ICU position has better pay, better hours, less weekend demands and works with my school schedule better.

    New Unit New job

    hey guys, I took a position during covid and the unit was explained in the interview but when I started I did not expect what I found. It's med surg and I do more critical care. the scheduling is not what I expected and I know I will not be happy here. I could transfer in 6 months but just not sure I want to wait that long because I will not be guaranteed a PCU unit. I have another hospital looking at me but would you guys wait 6 months or give notice. I am not sure if I would burn a bridge with this hospital. this is very foreign for me because I do not job hope.

    Failed Nclex

    Hi everyone I took my NCLEX last Friday and found out I failed. I had near passing in every category except one which was basic comfort and care I'm not sure how to look at this if I'm near passing in every category is that really bad or is that reason for hope. I had 265 questions and didn't make it. I try to make everything content related with my studying for this time around those and try to switch to technique and new plan like Kaplan. Inspiration stories welcome for those with similar situations.

  13. i am doing an article skit in school for a dying patient to show beneficence. can someone recommend 4 drugs for a dying patient that fit this category
  14. i failed my peds/ob rotation by 0.1 point. i have my LPN and this is the first time i ever failed a class. i did try but i think my study habits in the beginning were bad. i went to a readmission class and i did get in but the nursing academic instructor who is over the program said a few things which i do not know how to take. #1 she said any nursing students who fails a class will more than likely fail again. #2 C equals nurse is not true, most students just getting bye fail the NCLEX. she just came off very negative and not sure how to take any of this.
