Registered Nurse (RN) Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Registered Nurse (RN) in Calgary:
When working outside the hospital setting, be sure you are qualified to handle emergencies ALONE. I would absolutely NOT Recommend this type of job for a new grad. You must be confident in your abilities, stellar IV skills & ability to manage serious medical emergencies a MUST.

"Shift Work Is Difficult With A Family."
Deep breathe, take your time and focus, center yourself, it helps to prevent mistakes. I have been a nurse for 38 years and still enjoy my job.

Registered Nurse (RN) in Kelowna:
"Specialize."
Take qualified specialized course eg: Critical Care, Emergency, Cardiac/Telemetry, Hemodialysis, Oncology, Palliative Care, Orotho, surgical, peri-operative, PAR, GI, and hundreds more. Do your homework on the many areas you can specialize in. Know the demand for those positions and know which courses qualify for the positions you are interested. Beware of inferior courses offered by inferior schools. Take your classes from a very reputable college. Once you have succeeded, no one can ever take away your education and/or compete with you unless they are equally qualified with the same education. You will always have a job! Personally I started with Cardiac/Telemetry, then multi-system Intensive Critical Care, and then finally Hemodialysis. I have always had my choice of positions throughout my 29 year career and still going strong. It's lots of hard work but the effort is worth every bit of the hours and hours of studying. Good luck with you career.

Registered Nurse (RN) in Owen Sound:
Keep trying areas until you find your interest. I love community nursing. Skills from pediatric, cardiac to peritoneal dialysis to chemotherapy. I get to see it all. The down side is the really 'slap in your face' pay.
