    ER and ICU are completely different. Why would you need ER experience to work in an ICU? Plenty of new grads and 22 year olds work in ICUs. I work in one myself.

    This 100%. If you work for a...

    Depending on the hospital, float pool may put you in a lot of 1:1 watches. The aides occasionally get pulled from my floor. If possible I wouldn't do medsurg as an aide. All you will do is wipe...

    I'm sure no one would mind. If you like that kind of stuff there is an app called Figure 1 and if you go to the cardiology section exactly what you posted goes on with strips (docs mostly).

    Hope...

    GL. Still haven't heard back from the BON and they won't reply to me either.. No direct line in Ohio (that I can find). It prompts you to leave a message which they don't return.

    You can still apply for those jobs. The only ones I didn't apply for said, "at least 1 year RN experience required." If they are hiring new grads they will probably interview/ hire you before you're...

    Don't get the mindset that this stuff is for aides only b/c it isn't. On my floor nurses clean ****/vomit/piss every day. If you're the kind of person who gets queasy or is grossed out easily then...
