    Seriously. Only when men started becoming nurses were we permitted to stop dressing like nuns. Now RNs are supposed to start dressing like Student Nurses/orderlies again, go figure.
    There were always male nurses.

    Oh girl if it means that much to you!

    Will see what is in my old bedroom closet back at my parent's house. Failing that am sure lots of friends still have theirs chucked into some closet somewhere.

    Whatdoya want? St. Vincent's (no stripe), College of Staten Island (stripe), Wagner College (stripe), maybe even can scrounge up a Hunter-Bellevue (stripe). Choice is yours, knock yourself out!

    HUNTER! That's where I started college in 1971, back when the earth was still cooling!

    I didn't get a cap or a stripe. And I want one.

    You tell the nurse that you need to get up because the cows got out. See? Yonder beyond the crick!

    If you keep falling because you keep forgetting that you can't walk and need to pee and have a Foley you might have a problem.

    If you and the wife leave to go to Walmart and are intercepted by the RCMP because you overshot the mark by 100 miles, you may both have a problem.

    If you crack up the car before you get out of the garage and think the tow guy is trying to steal it, you may have a problem.

    If you are on the dementia unit and are looking for your car and are told it's in the parking lot and decide you have yet another car, you might have a problem.

    If you have been looking for your purse for six months and accuse everyone you see of stealing it, you might have a problem.

    I like LTC. Don't love it but like it. I hated being a floor nurse there but then, I hated that in the hospital, too. I am now doing hospice, visiting, and love it. Lots of freedom, lots of autonomy, and no MDs changing orders every 30 seconds.

    It depends to a degree on your state. I started in NY and LTC was very tightly watched by the gov't so the corner-cutting I see here in TX, where they have actually outsourced a lot of survey, wasn't possible. But it's hard, wherever you are.

    Diuretics aren't generally given in the evening. Needing to pee constantly harshes the patient's night's sleep.

    The online program has all the accreditation of the brick and mortar school.

    I'm starting in March, too.

    It is a proven fact that abortion affects women emotionally for a very long time.
    No. It is a proven fact that the Right to Life website says that it does.

    The experience of those women I know who who have had abortions - and I include myself and my mother - does not support the lies of the anti-choice organizations.

    rrandle, you have chosen important, worthwhile work.

    It hurts to be accused of neglect, particularly when it isn't true.

    I know.

    I agree WHOLE-HEARTEDLY that Narcan should not be used on an actively dying patient but it is good to have it nearby for the same reasons we do of what we do......the families.
    I will never, ever give narcan, which eliminates the ability to control pain AT ALL for hours, to one of my dying patients. And thank a merciful providence I am no longer in a hospital setting. Press Gainey this.

    Quote from VivaLasViejas
    And as terrible as it sounds, all I could think of was how fortunate it was for society that this character had rendered himself permanently incapable of producing just can't fix that kind of stupid. Yanno?
    He qualifies for a Darwin Award, to those who removed themselves from the gene pool by an incredible act of stupidity that either kills them or renders them incapable of reproduction.

    The family pushed for it - because an 86 year old man with a broken hip died.

    What I find most disconcerting is she is described as "the nurse most concerned with managing Mr. x's pain."

    No good deed goes unpunished.
