    Sup brahs. New grad nurse checking in.

    Just finished my first week as a new nurse. My preceptor is super awesome (Filipino male who has just one year of experience but very knowledgeable).

    I work at an Intermediate Care Unit (ICU step-down).
    Im not afraid to die on a treadmill. I wont be outworked. I will run.Period.You may be more talented than me, you may be smarter than me and all those things, but if we get on the treadmill, your goin to get off first or Im goin to die. Its that simple. The commodity that I see in most people that arent getting to the places they want or arent achieving the things they want is strictly based on hustle, based on being outworked, strictly based on missing the right opportunities.

    Northern VA next to DC. Why?

    I'm originally from NJ/NYC but i went to school in DC. Super hard to find a job as a new grad nurse in NYC or NJ.

    Yeah I know...i'm from NYC thats why im asking. From what i see, its either luck, or aggressive networking. Even with that I don't think any hospital in NYC would hire a new grad into any other unit besides med-surg. Seeing new grads saying they got hired gives me hope, but then i find out they are from some rural area

    for those who are RN's already, did you guys learn how to start an IV line during school? or did you learn on the job?

    I just realized that i'm in my third semester and we haven't learned yet...

    I'm thinking i might have to go get a phlebotomy/EKG cert on my own when i graduate

    The program here did a day of IV stuff in 4th quarter, not enough to be proficient in it but enough to stumble through it. Most of the hospitals have IV therapy so nurses don't usually have to know how to do them, I've done more IVs in a nursing home than the people I went to class with.
    A certification or class above and beyond school will always look good on a resume... And you'll always have it if you need it so it might not be a bad idea...

    This is a good YouTube channel, IMO.

    /user/ed4nurses/videos

    And if you can get past the retarded drawings you might find this one helpful as well

    /user/dearnurses/videos

    Other than that, there's really no Khan Academy type channels dedicated to allied health. Bunch of student channels though that's good for getting advice on a topic you're struggling with.

    ****, I can't post full URLs yet.

    I see, well I guess i'll be doing my acls, pals, ekg/phleb certs during these two last semesters. I hear a lot of people tell me I don't need to do it since most employers will pay for acls pals but I live in NYC and anything to set my resume off will help.

    If your school has IV simulation lab, go for it and ask them if they would demonstrate it for you. If you don't, find opportune times in clinical and ask the nurse you're with that day for IV attempts

    I was by no means proficient in IV's while in school, but I knew the general concept. Watch online IV videos to get the general jist and technique. Palpate your own veins and inspect them for location and feel. It wasn't until I inquired about special tricks from people that were really good at them that I was able to put it all together and be decent at them.

    Couple of things to consider, when looking at your veins, what can you determine? Most of them are really freaking close to the skin. Therefore, your angle of insertion does not need to be extreme at all think like 10 degree angle...maybe not even that high. Another thing to look at is the needle and catheter itself. When you look at an IV right out of the package, move the catheter up over the needle and bring it back down. Now take a good look at the tip. You will see that the needle is longer than the catheter. Now when you visualize inserting the catheter, you have a general idea what is going on. When you insert and you see blood, the needle is in the vein, but it doesn't mean the catheter is! Even out the plane a bit and insert just a tiny bit more to ensure the catheter is in. Feel free to then attempt to insert that bad boy in. If you have any more question, i'm sure you'll get a lot of answers here about technique and tips

    Yeah I guess i could try and learn on my own from watching vids. I don't think they will let me insert IV's during clinicals however, all the hospitals i've been to have their own IV team (prob the most hated nurses). Thanks for the tips

    I learned in school...but I only got attempt to start maybe 1 or 2 IV's on an actual patient while in school. When I was on orientation at the hospital I work at I went to day surgery and all I did all morning was practice starting IV's. It takes a lot of practice to get it down, but once you do you will hardly ever miss. Good luck with school man. let me know if you got anymore questions.

    Why is the IV team considered the most hated nurses? Just wondering because one of the things that I'm reading about right now is about collaboration within the health care.

    I only said that as a joke, but most hated by patients since they go around sticking IV's in peoples hands and arms, with a lot of the population being elderly and its harder to get a stick in , taking multiple tries while the pt is in pain and annoyed at you

    Ah gotcha.

    Anyway, this reading made me feel good and thought I'd share it with you guys.

    Nurses hold the public's trust. In Gallup's annual survey of professions released in December of 2009, 83% of Americans call nurses' honesty and ethical standards either high or very high. Nurses have topped Gallup's honesty and ethics ranking survey every year but one since being added to the list in 1999 (ANA, 2009), continuing to be the most well-respected of 21 professions. In a society where image is everything, consistently holding the public's trust is a remarkable accomplishment.

    So I'm about two weeks into school and I must say.. my angus was not peppered.

    Pretty overwhelmed by everything at the moment, especially anatomy and physiology class; we pretty much go over entire units in one lecture and you have to go home and read the textbook, takes notes ect (usually 4 hours---2 for anatomy, 2 for physiology)

    Only problem is that I'm having trouble pinpointing key points in units, the textbooks are sooo fuarkin long and in-depth

    Easy so far, still a first year. It simply builds upon what you already learned from nursing school and work experience. Granted it's some new stuff and it's more in depth, the general concepts are fairly easy to grasp

    I felt that A&P was simply a way to weed out unworthy students. A trial by fire sort of deal. If you can put the effort into A&P and do well, you'll find it'll be your hardest class...except for med-surge

    Did you completely stop working during school, or do they allow you guys to work part-time?

    Also whats the demographics of your classmates? I picture them being a higher percentage of male students, maybe very gung-ho", relatively younger

    I moved out-of-state to attend school, so I don't work at all, even though I have the free time to do so If i wanted to. Many programs do not recommend people to work. We have 11 girls and 6 guys in our class. Most of us are in our mid to late 20's. I'm not sure how that gender demographic compares to other schools. Most of the guys are laid back, social and chill. To be expected.
