I agree w/prn. I bid you welcome as well.
What you will see here is nurses helping their peers to think thru problems, share the funny and sad stuff, mentor the kids and the new grads. We tell each other when to duck and cover and when to go out with all guns blazing. We take care of one another because that's what nurses do.
You can almost always find someone on your side. You can ask a stupid question w/o losing face at work. You can supprot and you can give it back.
Thsi is NOT a recruiting site per se, but we do get posts from High School kids, and people wondering about making a career change. Most of those inquiries are answered appropriately.
This is a PEER SITE
. Sometimes coworkers are too close to you or the situation to be able to help. And sometimes things said at work can come back to bite you later. This is a much safer place to vent. Our families frequently don't know how to help, either. So this is an alternative to taking it out on spouse and children and coworkers.
I'd suggest that you keep reading--but be SURE to put on your staff nurse thinking cap when you do, ok? I should think this site would give you LOTS of insight!!
