    I hated nursing school. I didn't feel like it was an accurate representation of what a nursing career would be and just a bunch of bitter old women wasting my time.

    Nursing school tips.
    - always ask to try things at clinicals, nurses are always more than willing to teach.
    - never look like you don't want to be there, at anything you do. No matter how boring or pointless something is the professors and instructors will bitch you out for it later.
    - C's get degrees, just get through it, you'll
    - 5 % of your skills will be from school, 10% from clinicals and 85% will be from your precepting/externship.

    Right before I graduated nursing school and was heading to my preceptorship I figured I wasn't going to even use my bsn and work as a nurse. I'd do something adjacent, I didn't enjoy it and didn't think I was competent enough to work as a nurse.

    After my preceptorship I loved it.

    I work three days a week for full time. Sometimes I'll work four and get an insane amount of overtime because the hospital always needs staff.

    I'm a critical float nurse. So generally I work in the icu but when the hospital is short in the non critical areas I'll get sent there for a night or two. Which can be nice, it's generally getting paid for a stress free night.

    Guys in nursing generally work in the high acuity areas. icu/cardiac/pacu/pre-op/er/cath lab.

    Professional tips.
    - apply for every job, take the first one you get. Worry about getting into better areas after six months or a year.
    - and when I say that I mean in a hospital, working outside of them Is a sure fire way to do mind numbing tasks or just constant incontinent care.
    - never get attached to the patients.

    I'm sure there is lots more.
    Oh you cant scrub into assist wth surgery without more school and certifications. You can circulate though.

    You can always pm me with questions.

    If you're not smart enough to get into medical school, you're probably not competitive with CNA program applicants. That being said mid levels will be in increasing demand, so nurse practitioner school should be something to consider.

    And vented patients treat you the best, unless they self extubate.

    Also working at a teaching hospital is great. Most of the residents haven't become assholes yet and are good people. And the really shitty ones give you whatever you want.

    What kind of floor/area are you in uga?

    "Assist" was a poor choice of words on my part. Obviously you can't "assist" assist unless you are a RNFA, FNP or a PA but a regular RN can still most definitely scrub a case.

    I'm definitely going to listen to all of this and will more than likely pm you at some point in time. This semester we are going to be going to an old folks home and doing the basic things on them and then moving to the hospital so it will be a while before I get to experience any of that.

    I think this is great advice. Most of my undergrad classes were with pre nursing/med/dental/pharmacy students. In my experience, far too many people want to act like every single class is learning to split the atom. School is not difficult if you adequately prepare. If you think that you can pass a microbiology test by studying for 15 minutes, you are probably a genius or wrong. Many of the pre nursing students acted as though freshman level biology, chemistry/statistics/etc. was extremely difficult. Those people exist in every field and I am not trying to slam any profession.

    I think that your attitude will determine a lot of your experience. I think you should prepare to succeed and ignore all the petty whining and bullshit. Too many people in a college setting want to feel like their major is "soooo hard." I would choose not to subscribe to that line of thinking. More often than not, classes are much easier than the majority of a class will want you to believe. Too many of these people that act like the classes are so hard are also the people that want to brag about all night study sessions that are actually social gatherings. Ignore the idiots. Make good grades on the first few tests in each class. Allow yourself room for error on finals to reduce stress. Bang slutty nursing students. Repeat.

    I know it's different at every place but how many male nurses usually work at one given hospital? I know the male:female ratio is crazy but I have just never looked up the actual statistics. And are they usually the odd ball out or do the woman want them on their team? Because I keep hearing how nurses tend to "eat their young" since women like to get in groups and gossip about one another. I already see that and it's fucking annoying.

    The one I worked at was probably a 6:1 ratio of females to males.

    Not really the oddball out scenario where I worked. Most people got along fine with each other whether it was male or female. Younger female RN's/LPN's I've encountered are straight-up raunchy with their humor. Hard to explain, but most of them aren't quiet or shy.

    Get your BSN then go to anesthesiology school and become a nurse anesthesist and make money. Get your RN and if you're single become a traveling nurse and make money and get to go wherever you want. My friend does it and has lived in Denver, San Fransico, Seattle, Austin, and now back in San Francisco. She works like 7 on 7 off so she takes a week vacation every other week around the world. Also gets per diem and money for rent on top of salary. She's a female, but I'm sure you can do the same shit if you have a penis.

    Question: I see many recommendations to bang other nurses but is it recommended to bang the patients?

    Follow up question: As a patient, how could I bang a female nurse? Constant erections and "some irritation I think you should like at"? Wriggling the penis during catheter insertion? Offering to return the favor during sponge baths? What gets them wild?

    When I was in the Cath Lab, there was a nurse notorious for giving guys hardons during groin prep, it was funny and weird and awkward all at the same time because for the longest time she thought it was normal.

    I was great with all the frontline work - patient interaction, charge nurse, assignments, etc. Now I'm finding out what goes on behind the scenes to make sure things run smoothly. Hiring/firing, retention, scheduling, physician schmoozing, and MEETINGS. Also I'm trying to transition from peer to boss since I've worked with these folks for the past 5 years.

    It's mildly awkward.

    EDIT: I'm now salary as well, so no overtime. THAT hurt a little more than I was expecting. But it's a good change so far.

    A foley is a type of catheter (tube) that is inserted in the urethra to drain the urine from your bladder. It is held in place by inflating a balloon at the end of the catheter to keep it anchored inside the bladder. To remove the foley safely, you deflate this balloon before pulling on the catheter so that you aren't dragging something several times larger than the inside diameter of the urethra all the way down the patient's penis. Occasionally, patients are out of it enough to manage to accomplish this impressive feat.

    It's highly suggested that you put it on your radar for a 5-yr plan. I've got a BSN now. I figure I can take a year or two to figure this manager thing out and then hit the books for an online masters.
