    Has anyone left nursing job due to COVID19 virus?

    This is so understandable! God bless you.

    Has anyone left nursing job due to COVID19 virus?

    Exactly!! Also, I had my qualms about my previous workplace before all of this transpired. Just over this flu season, a nursing supervisor told a pregnant staff worker she could not wear a mask unless she was working within 6 feet of the resident. T...

    Covid-19 unit while pregnant

    I'm so sorry you're going through this. How managers and hospitals (as well as the country) are handling this is completely unacceptable. Did you take your temp to confirm a fever? It's especially important to monitor in pregnancy as fever can lead t...

    Has anyone left nursing job due to COVID19 virus?

    At the job I just left for many different reasons, one of their guidelines was that we were not supposed to wear a mask unless we were working within 3 feet of someone displaying active symptoms... :-o. This made me so angry. 3 feet?! That's basicall...

    Covid-19 unit while pregnant

    I am pregnant and currently staying home. It is recommended that pregnant women should stay home during this crisis, and for it to be expected that a nurse should work, regardless of pregnancy, just because she is a nurse, is not right at all. Nurse ...

    Pregnant during covid crisis

    I'm 7 weeks pregnant and recently left my job for various reasons, including not growing/learning there and being bored out of my mind, as well as being in disagreement with their standards of care. With the night time hours I also did not think it w...

    Feeling defeated as a bedside nurse

    I am also a new nurse and work as the sole nurse overnight for 17 residents at a special needs facility. I share some of your same feelings, though for opposite reasons. I often have not much of anything to do with hours to kill, and overnights are n...
  8. I am currently working at a special needs center in a residential facility. When I first heard the job description, it made me uncomfortable because I thought it would be a lot to handle as a new grad to care for up to 20 residents as the sole nurse ...

    Choice Between Two Jobs Conundrum

    Thanks for the advice! I am currently working, however, very much looking to get out of it, so trying to set up my next job! I agree that a straight hire is better than a contract. I also really don't like being bound to a contract for 6 months if it...
  10. So after applying on Friday, the 24th of January, I got a call back from the nurse recruiter at the hospital on Monday, the 27th. I never ended up seeing that I had a missed call or voicemail until she called again on Wednesday!! I feel bad that I mi...

    Choice Between Two Jobs Conundrum

    Hey everyone! I'm seeking advice on how to make a choice between two jobs, each with pros and cons. I received my first hospital call back from a nurse recruiter who is going to forward my resume to managers on the units I applied to. Someo...
  12. I found out that my cousins just came down with chickenpox. I still remember my aunt asking my mother if she should vaccinate when she was a new mom looking for advice and worried about the potential of them contracting a disease if she didn't vaccin...
  13. I have read about the type 1 diabetes and vaccines connection. What seems to be the case is that a lot of autoimmune diseases are triggered by a pathogen. Perhaps people were noticing type 1 (or other autoimmune diseases) after a vaccine, but it wasn...

    Special Needs Facility Job With 20 Patients

    Well in this instance, they do more than a typical aid - they have to have a year of experience with the disability population and they have to OPWDD medication administration certified. I believe there are tube feeds, trachs, one patient on ...

    Special Needs Facility Job With 20 Patients

    A nursing intern is a nursing student or graduate who didn't pass their boards yet. I found out the orientation is more like 3-4 weeks. I accepted the offer and went to the office to fill out the necessary paperwork. I asked more about how long ...
  16. So I'm starting my first nursing job soon in a special needs pediatrics long-term care facility. I really wanted a hospital job, but have had no luck getting in. Where I live it seems to be difficult as a new grad to get into a hospital, plus having ...
