    Me on the Army Special Forces side. Her on the civilian side.
    NOTE the RN we do have just took off this incorrect order. Anyone with common knowledge would at least question it. It read: Levoquin 500mg po QID. this is 4 times the max. dose.
    AND it was charted as given. SO guess who played clean-up?
    RN's are Great. BUT fate it seams sticks me with the dumb ones.
    Just by reading your quote Progeria I could really tell how INTELLIGENT you are. Why all RN's can not spell as well as you can and we certainly can't take orders off correctly. Why we really need more of you in our hospitals to clean up behind us. HA!!! Do you really think that we BELIEVE you? You are one of those people who by opening your mouth allow others to know your IQ. After reading your quotes, I thought immediately, "HERE'S YOUR SIGN!" But as I continued to read, I got even madder. You probably can't even clean up behind your own self much less an RN. If you have had a bad experience with a particular nurse that doesn't give you the right to group them. How many RN's do you think have had problems with an LPN? I don't know many RN's that would group them either. I certainly do not. I have worked with excellent LPN's. You need to go back to school and learn how to spell and have someone teach you about professional etioquete. You will not make it long in the NURSING profession.

    and to think I originally started working for $11.85 as a staff nurse in Guam! Of course I hear of agency RNs filling staff positions a pulling in 80,000-100,000 a year, but they work there a@#es off and I like to think of myself as a little more mentally balanced than some of those chain smoking crazies!

    I get paid 13 bucks as a CNA here in california, thats weird. I guess it must be way cheeper to live in some places where they pay R.N so little. RN here in california start off at 44 bucks per hour.
