Hello all! I have been looking into becoming a CNM. I am wondering if anyone here could answer a few questions about it for me. Is it better to do a direct entery midwifery program and then go for the masters program or is it better to do nursing school and then the program? What were the more challenging aspects of going through the schooling process? What is it like being a CNM and do you think it was worth it? What are the differences between the direct entry midwife programs and nursing school to become a CNM? I am looking into career changes and since birthing my children have been inter ..read more

Do agencies/schools not require specific documentation for 1:1 school nurses?

This is my first time working as a 1:1 school nurse. My prior experience is in the hospital setting. I’m working for an agency that placed me with this student through the school system. The staffing agency has given me no way to chart telling me to follow what the school wants. The school has no way for me to chart telling me to do whatever the staffing agency wants. While I of course can come up with my own methods of charting (which is what I’m doing as of right now) I find it hard to believe that neither one wants any specific documentation from me. My only 2 contacts at the agency are no ..read more

Hi! I have currently been working in a MICU/TICU for about 2.5 years. With the high stress of being overworked and understaffed I’ve been wanting to transition to a remote job. Also, In the last year I had to go full-time to part-time so 2 12s instead of 3, due to lack of childcare. I have a 1 year old that stays home and a 6 year old in school. A large appeal to me for this job would be flexible for my kids, but also that I could go back full time and bring it more money due to being able to work 40 hrs again without the stress of bedside. Some questions I have is this position in CDI feasib ..read more

I need help dealing with patient yelling at me

A patient yelled at me last night and I'm really having issues letting it go. Scene: night shift, young(ish) patient and mother at bedside I was taking care of a patient who had been having difficulty with pain management. I addressed his pain upon starting the shift - he had a PCA and I had the provider assess him as well. We (I thought) agreed on a strategy where I would check on his pain level q4. When I checked on him at 0200 and gave him pain meds I noticed he was crimping his CVP line so I tried to adjust his IJ, letting him know that we needed to adjust position. He was like, "you're h ..read more

Being an LPN is hell

I don't care who you are and what job you are planning to do. DO NOT GO TO SCHOOL FOR LPN! It's worth absolutely nothing. You will be treated like garbage. There are few jobs worth your time or your sanity. 90% of jobs you will be overworked. Underpaid. And you will be given a nightmare amount of patients. Don't do it. Please! I'm begging you. This paper is worth nothing. And I feel like I'm worth nothing. I regret even trying to be a nurse with all I've gone through. I regret even trying to get into this career. I regret even trying! Don't let these money hungry colleges lie to you; all they ..read more
