"Be the type of nurse you want to work with" - Brian Short RN, founder of allnurses.com
Have you never seen this before?
Ooohhh ick smells! We've all had those odors that just really get to us. For some, its the GIB, for others C-dif, and for some, stage IV ulcers. We all know our own nemesis. Now, how we deal with them is as variable as the smell itself. What do you do to mask the odors? A mask? Vicks under your nose? What do YOU do?
Nurses, we've all had rough shift, and I'm sure you can relate.

We've all run into a "new nurse". What's the most memorable experience you ever had with a new nurse? Maybe it was something they said ??? Or, something they did? Good or bad share your story...
The word NO in this instance, needs to be in caps. Overtime, working extra shifts are a reality. Deciding to work extra though is or should be your choice. allnurses hears frequently about nurses being "mandated," "forced" or made to feel guilty if they turn down an extra shift. When you don't want to work that extra shift, what do you say? Do you make up an excuse or do you just say NO!?
We've all seen this type of patient. They start out in the ER insisting that they be seen first because no one else could be in as much need of medical attention as them. This behavior carries over to the floor once they've been admitted. They want it, and they want it NOW. What are some experiences you've had with such privileged characters?
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports employment among Registered Nurses will grow faster than the average for all occupations through 2018. They also report that large metropolitan cities such as New York, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Houston, Phoenix, etc will be hiring the most nursing jobs.
According to PayScale, new Registered Nurses (RNs) earn between $30,233 - $63,540 per year (2012). That's not bad compared to other professions.
How do you feel about your salary compared to other professions?

What do you do after a rough shift? Have fun with the girls? Eat chocolate? Or, do you just go straight to bed?

Maybe it's a morning thing? I've worked all shifts, and I'd have to agree day shifters tend to be more crabby, then evenings 2nd? For some strange reason, the night shift nurses have always been a fun and in good moods for the most part.
In my opinion, I do think days shifts are busier than most other shifts (at least in our hospital). But then again, it is usually staffed better also.

The Memory Test
Three elderly men are at the doctor's office for a memory test.
The doctor asks the first man, "What is three times three?"
"274," is his reply.
The doctor rolls his eyes and looks up at the ceiling, and asks the second man, "It's your turn. What is three times three?"
"Tuesday," replies the second man.
The doctor shakes his head sadly, then asks the third man, "Okay, your turn. What's three times three?"
"Nine," says the third man.
"That's great!" says the doctor. "How did you get that?"
"Simple," he says, "just subtract 274 from Tuesday."
