    No no no no no! This reeks (sorry, I couldn't resist) of a bad thing in the making. As one who has very severe allergies, I would not survive. I cannot even begin to imagine what effect this might have on the patients!

    Your state BON should be able to tell you. I wish you well!

    Sure of course, but there is honestly nothing wrong with marijuana. Imagine if there was a stigma for nurses to come home to a glass or two of wine (which we all know alcohol opens a chance for addiction, which weed does not)
    And, evidence to support your statement that weed does not open a chance for addiction? In refereed journals? And, would you want to work alongside/after/be a patient of a nurse whose last joint of several was just before walking into the workplace?

    No. I have worked one time in my career with a sore throat and fever and made the promise to never do it again, all because the charge nurse who was going to be called in if I missed it refused to do so and guilted me into working. The next time I had fever and bronchitis, I called in, was scolded and put on verbal notice (it was 1 of 3 unrelated absences---blown back and mother's death the other two). When I said I would not expose our patients (newborns and postpartum/surgical patients) I was told "You do what you have to do." So, I turned in my notice because, as I told the manager, I couldn't guarantee that I wouldn't blow my back out again nor that I would not get bronchitis with fever again. I was glad to leave that unit......

    I applaud you for being comfortable where you are. But, I have a comment/question for you and a few others.....I am a nurse. I am also an Advanced NURSE Practitioner. What, exactly, do you think an ANP does? We have to put up with patients and families who complain. We have increasing workloads, etc., and deal with coding and billing, etc. We have days in which if we get off on time we've done well. We get overworked, and some would even say underpaid.

    OP---goodness! You've been blasted, haven't you! Anyway---it really isn't a good idea. Listen to the nurses who responded, and if your hospital admin is truly interested in honoring the nurses, then present some of the ideas---useable gift cards for PTO, meals delivered daily (and nightly) to the units, bonuses, etc., are much more indicative of the appreciation admin has for the nursing staff than a scavenger hunt that might only bring pain to someone. I know your intent is good, but please, rethink this.
