    Question regarding minimum staffing

    So, what may end up happening especially considering there is no one to watch the monitors is that someone may go into a lethal rhythm, the one and only person there will not see it and that said person may have an MI or God knows what else. When thi...

    When is it time to leave nursing?

    I agree with seeking counseling to pin-point what is going on. I am sorry you are unhappy. I hope you find your happiness!

    I have made a huge mistake...

    I would say no to swing shifts. I simply cannot do it. I have worked night shift for almost 2 1/2 years now and have also been asked to work day shift. I would LOVE to, just so I can see (and remember) how day shift feels vs nights but I have to kee...

    How to be organized in med surge clinicals

    Good question. It is tough to get a routine down and just know that. We also use powerchart at my hospital (aka Cerner). First thing is first, add your patients to your list so they show up on the care compass. The care compass shows you upcoming tas...

    What does a Brain Navigator do?

    Thanks, Swellz. Still waiting for an answer hopefully and just don't know anyone who works in this field to ask. I like to know what I am applying for or interviewing for before hand.

    I hate being a sitter

    I don't understand this. We see it all the time where one tech WANTS to work the floor and another WANTS to sit. We simply adjust the assignment. We've also had one sit for half a shift, and the other work the floor. I really don't see what the issue...

    Forgot to document an output

    I agree with verene here. It happens. I see a ton of strict I&O orders as we get a lot of CHF and Dialysis patients on our floors. It happens way too often unfortunately. I've seen in physician notes: "inaccurate I&O" and it can make it tough...

    What does a Brain Navigator do?

    Hello fellow nurses, I apologize if this is a dumb question or has been asked before. There are some big changes coming to my current hospital and over half of the current nursing staff on my unit will, well, have to go do something else somewhere el...

    Study like a Nursing Student

    Tip #1: Study in a way that works for you. I used Quizlet more than ANYTHING. Tip #2: Make at least one friend in your class and become best friends during your journey. You have no idea how combining one or more brain really makes a difference! Tip...

    I Love Night Shift

    I have to say I actually really enjoy Night shift for all of these reasons. My only complaint is on off days I feel kind of 9ff come 3-6 am because not a soul I really know is awake and it's kinda lonely LOL! And yes traffic is actually bad for me ...
