    I'm a hospital COO.. can answer anything you'd like.

    my advice: work in a hospital and find a specialty you like. then work your way to be a director of a unit.

    Celemo you need to let the reps know when nursing students are being toured around the OR, so we can plan ahead to take them out for drinks as a component of their orientation. Sleeping over equals extra CME credits. :)

    Should address this. I felt almost every single clinical experience I had at that school was a waste of time. I learned more in my preceptroship than I did all in school. In fact, before I precepted, I was thinking about moving on and not even getting into nursing...I may have mentioned it before.

    that's not even the worst one.

    The pretty much anything attached to community is the worst. hopefully that changed, because for me that was I think 3rd semester. One day a week I'd have to go to the lancaster county health center for 2 hours. then after that you'd go to your assigned person, and do home health nursing, and after that you'd go to your population, mine was the mens side of some homeless shelter. One project for your person and for your population. Both crazy easy, but total waste of time bullshit.

    all worth it though.

    God Community nursing clinical sucked balls. Most useless class/clinical rotation ever. And the real nursing comes after school. It gives you a pretty okay knowledge base but then you realize you know not that much. It's 90% on-the-job training.

    Totally worth it, though.

    Dental school thing is what happened with me. Ended up getting a pretty bad grade in Ochem 1 and failed Ochem 2 and even my retake grade wasn't good so I didn't even bother taking the DAT because I was set on staying in Lincoln and those grades probably were going to send me somewhere else IF I happened to get in somewhere. I also had a child in that time and didn't want to be screwing around attempting to get into dental schools all over the country.

    My plan is to get my DNP as fast as I can. Kind of in an internal battle with myself because I know I want to be an NP, but I also know that theres going to be a lot to learn and some experience would definitely help me.

    From a floor nurse standpoint, it'd be nice for you to have at least some bedside care. That way you'd be much more... relatable and trusted by them. It sounds stupid, but you'll be seen as having been "down in the trenches with them."

    I found out recently that it actually gets even better... Jan. 2011 everything that had been deferred wasn't anymore. Total for repayment at that time was $147k.

    Currently down to just over $45k, of which $73,000 has been paid in the last 25 months. :rain::rain::rockin: :rockin:

    with asshole doctors I generally page their supervisor or just page them random numbers. OR in some cases I play there stereotypical TV nurse, where I can't make a move without asking their permission and bugging them as much as I can.

    With insane family, I generally wait until they leave the room.

    yeah to get in touch with the residents and fellows we have their pager numbers. So they never know who is paging them. Usually I'll just page one number(3 or 8 etc). I don't want to page them too the point where they'd ignore a page from a unit because they think its a prank. IF they really annoy me I'll page them to every unit in the same page.

    However one of the surgeons is way worse than me. He'll page other doctors to dr. john's( a local sex shop).

    This is weak bullshit. The greatest page prank, is to page someone to the number they are sitting at. Then surreptitiously count the number of times they try to call their own number and get the busy signal. This works great in large hospitals, because people only remember the secretary station numbers. I got a guy I worked with to call his own number five times. All the while angrily asking "why would you page someone to a number, and then immediately call someone else from that number?"

    There are like 11 numbers that I can page from. If I page a doc from a number I'm sitting near they'll stand up and say anyone page me. I do however page to 8675309 sometimes and enjoy it when they try and call it without getting the joke .

    Do you guys know any interesting things I could volunteer for with an RN? I am currently a tennis director at a country club and don't see me leaving this industry unless I blow my knees out. But I'd like to put my RN to use in some form or another. I've been trying to get some per diem work at hospitals in nj, but from April-October I basically become unavailable because of my normal job. They seem reluctant to take me for only part of the year.

    Not sure where you live, but there is non-profit organization in California (RockMed) that provides free medical services at concerts (Bottle Rock, Outside Lands, etc.) and sporting events (Levi's Stadium), and it is staffed solely by volunteers with various certs (EMTs, RNs, NPs, physicians, etc.). If there is a similar organization in your area, it would be a good opportunity to see some concerts or events you want to get into for free.
