  2. Took Ibuprofen for 2nd Vaccine

    I did take it after, however, it was only one hour after vaccine administration... hardly feels like it is after since it was so close to when I got the shot. It was last week that the CDC recommend not premedicating and using NSAIDs and Antipyretic...

  8. Help!?! New to SICU. Cried second day. Terrified

    I can't even begin to tell you how helpful this is and how grateful I feel to have your support and encouragement. I return to the unit Saturday with my secondary preceptor. I've done some good self care ... gone on long runs, slept late, did laund...
  9. Im on the fence though about going to management....I don't want to cause rifts or rock the boat. Do you think maybe the clinical educator? Thank you! I can totally appreciate people telling me I have to keep it together. And I really appreciate the ...
  10. I can't begin to tell you how grateful I am for your kind words and encouragemen, Esme12 . Yes, it is a terrifying place. And yes, I should definitely let go that I cried. I am only human. I didn't know exactly where to put this post, I haven't had a...

  12. This is a reasonable question. And I appreciate you asking. I was always afraid of hospital environment. But I would go on these binges and start applying to hospitals just to see. I was shocked when I was asked to come in for an interview. When they...
