I recently passed my licensure exam, I am looking for some input on how I can get started with my nursing career. I am a foreign graduate nurse with a BSN. I practiced nursing from my home country a few years ago. I am now ready to start my nursing career here in the US, I am hoping someone could give me some input on how I can get started? I would like to update my basic nursing skills- how can I go about doing this? How can I make myself a good prospective employee?
I am almost 40, a mom of two young children, and became an RN in March of this year. I hold a BA and received an ADN. I have had a hard time finding a job in NJ, hospitals, they want experience. I send resumes with no response. I have even began knocking on doctor offices doors. I began substitute school nursing and love it BUT now I need to go back to get a certificate..These certificate programs require a BSN or you have to take 3 prerequisites before you can start the program or you need
I am a nurse and a stay at home mom as well. Aside from that I enjoy learning interior designing of homes and doing some crafty work of art.
What I really liked about nursing even if I am not practicing the profession is that it can be applied to almost any aspect of life. I never regret being a nurse because it really has helped me with everything from the moment I had a baby to cleaning the house. Just merely choosing the products in cleaning shower doors I know which is good or

A RN with an incredible $50K (plus) debt to carry around on my back for who knows how long. Thats if I get through the program and not end up like so many
I have a question about Wound classification. How are you classifying C-sections that do not have ruptured membranes? How about total abdominal hysterectomies?

So I have been struggling with my own sleep and energy lately. I am not sure of the cause for my disrupted sleep as I have not changed much in my life. I also am not saying my sleep is terrible; I just am aware it can be better. So since about my birthday,I have noticed that I am sort of awake at night. And what I mean by that is, even though I am asleep and sleep well for the most part, when I turn from one side to the other shifting positions I am conscious of it. I can literally feel myself
I am a nurse and a coach. I have worked in psychiatry, community health nursing, and wellness education. I am interested in topics relating to nurses well-being, self-care, and balance because as a nurse I struggled with these issues. But after a lot of healing and self-work I have been through some major shifts. I now am interested in hearing about other nurses journeys to wellness and health and am passionate about creating space for nurses to be well, take time for themselves,

I have just tranferred from Florida with my husband. I am looking for a part-time job in the area. I am not interested in travel jobs. I have most recently worked as a Case Manager for a hospice. Does anyone know of a local job with 8 hour shifts, maybe a doctor's office, etc? I have had back surgery and am limited as far as strenuous or hospital work.

As a retired certified school nurse, a wonderful job I had for 23 years, I need to comment on the recent article as well as to joe155-elk_1, I applaud Joe for his service in the ED and as a paramedic. The major differences between a PROFESSIONAL level school nurse and other nurses is the ability to deal with medical and psychiatric issues WITHOUT any medical equipment but a stethoscope and a flashlight. School nurses must be able to determine whether the child with asthma needs the parent to pick
I had a symphysiotomy in 1982 for trapped shoulders at Kaiser Permanente in Vallejo, CA. A LD nurse from Walnut creek Kaiser said they're known as "vaginal c-sections. Is this procedure done anymore? 29 years later a physical therapist detected my hips are asymmetical. A 1/4" heel lift in my left shoe makes my hips symmetrical. I also had 8 sessions on pelvic stabilization exercises. Anyone had any experience with this procedure?
