10 Tips for Surviving the First-Year Nursing | Nursingdegrees.com

Now that you're an RN, it's time to hit the floors and get to work. Discover some small tips to help you survive your first year as a nurse.
Julie Chhun's insight:

This article is giving people that are becoming a nurse, tips. The tip that struck me was "caffiene is your friend" because when you become a nurse you are going to work long shifts and even do over night shifts. I would have to get used to that since I am used to sleeping during the night.

Difference between studio apartment and one bedroom

Difference between studio apartment and one bedroom | Registered Nursing | Scoop.it
Difference between studio apartment and one bedroom
Julie Chhun's insight:

This article explains the difference between a studio apartment and a one bedroom. The main difference is that with the studio apartment, it is just one big room which you have to share your kitchen, living room, and bedroom in. There is no divider, with a one bedroom the room you are sleeping in is in a seperate place closed off from the living room. A studio apartment is cheaper than a one bedroom, but it also depends on how you feel about living in the two. I personally want a one bedroom apartment because I will get more privacy.

Top 10 Reasons We Get Fired: Sleeping on duty

Top 10 Reasons We Get Fired: Sleeping on duty | Registered Nursing | Scoop.it
Sleeping on duty is number 3 in my series of 'Top ten reasons we get fired' Internet searches on this topic show it is a world wide problem, and not limited to the US. Research is showing that allowing Night shift workers to have naps on their breaks can help to prevent errors which occur. Yet we continue to be very intolerant of co-workers who nod off or sleep when at work.
Julie Chhun's insight:

For nurses, sleeping on duty can result in termination. Nurses that work the night shift do not get that much sleep, they actually lose 1-4 hours of sleep and sometimes they nod off while they are on break or when they are just sitting around which is not allowed because nurses always have to stay alert in case of an emergency and they're needed. If they are nodding off during a procedure or with a patient, it can cause harm. Nurses are now trying to prove that taking a 20 minute nap during their break can actually help them be more careful and awake.

If it turns out that I don't feel able to pay for a university, EVCC actually had a pretty good and rigorous nursing program. This would be much cheaper than UW or Whitworth.

Budgeting 101 - Everything You Need to Know About Budgets

Budgeting 101 - Everything You Need to Know About Budgets | Registered Nursing | Scoop.it
Budgeting lies at the foundation of every financial plan. It doesn’t matter if you’re living paycheck to paycheck or earning six-figures a year, you need to know where your money is going if you want to have a handle on your finances. Unlike what you might believe, budgeting isn’t all about restricting what you spend money on and cutting out all the fun in your life.
Julie Chhun's insight:

The main reason to create a budget is to help you keep your finances under control by keeping track of how much money you’re spending and where it goes. You need to set a budget for yourself every time you recieve a paycheck so you are not living paycheck by paycheck. You have to put aside a little at a time.

Julie Chhun's insight:

This article explains the steps you need to take to apply Nursing schools, I wish I had read this earlier in my high school life because it explains that you need to take Physcology and four years of english. Now that I am in my senior year, it is too late to take some of those classes. But I can take those classes during college and then apply to the Nursing Schools.

The First Time I Had to Tell a Family That Their Loved One Passed Away

The First Time I Had to Tell a Family That Their Loved One Passed Away | Registered Nursing | Scoop.it
I originally wrote this in my personal journal that chronicled my first year as an RN. I was recently rereading my journal and reflecting on the years since. Nursing school doesn't always prepare you for everything. There were a lot of experiences I had as a new nurse that nursing school simply prepared me for, but did not teach me how to handle. Sometimes you simply have to trust that your heart will pick the right thing to do.
Julie Chhun's insight:

Reading this article was very sad. As a nurse I think about helping people and taking care of the sick ones, but I guess I have never really thought of having someone in my care pass away and having to tell their loved ones. This article tells me how she handled it with the family and herself, I think she was pretty good nurse. She talked to the family through her heart and not her brain which I think helped the family accept it more. Being a nurse you're going to deal with all kinds of things the good and the bad.
