Hawaii Nursing Culture

  1. 0

    I am a new grad working a little less than 9 months on a respiratory cardiology floor in Portland, OR .....born and raised in Hawaii, eventually hoping to return to all my family and friends. From all the posts in this forum I gather I won't be coming home soon Someday I will!!!!!

    I had attended a nursing school up in the mainland and was curious to know if there was a difference in the culture of nursing (interactions w/ patients, MD's, family, other nursing staff; the way nurses give care, etc.) between the mainland and the islands. If anyone could share their experiences, that would be great!

    Thank you!

    I thought the same thing last night. Luckily I had just gotten off a 12, and needed to go to sleep.

    Well, same thing again tonight.

    Maybe tomorrow i'll open up that can. =P~

    These replies are intriguing... I wish I knew the subtext here. I'd love it if one you could please address the OP's question, I think it's a good one.

    You're from Maui... you really need explanation?

    *hint: Working three days in a row isn't hard... except it gets tricky finding a new lay every morning before work*

    Slobgob, (1) Sounds like we're different. I'm happily married to the man of my dreams. Don't need to find new friends every day. I've got everything I need at home. (2) I'm FOB. Yes, would like an explanation. Really.
