I don't think men would be a very good nursing market. I bought scrubs once, and they haven't fallen apart yet. I recently spent money on ammo, snowshoes, some fencing material, 2 tons of bricks, and a tamper. But I wouldn't look to a nursing supply for those things in the future. Best of luck.
Any records you keep to "cover" yourself can be subpoenaed and entered into the court record. I don't think you are gaining any coverage. It could just as easily be used against you.
Create a blog site where nurses write all the content! With different categories for all nursing specialities! Oh wait, that idea has already been taken... Sorry I couldn't resist...
I don't work in your specialty but I've had rough patches in my career. Hating my job was one... You need to adjust your attitude. I don't mean you have a bad attitude, but you need to look at your job in a different way. Since what you are doing isn't working for you, do something different. I started to focus on my own internal compass of what I felt was a good day, not what I was receiving from my dysfunctional workplace. My problem was management, not the patients, but it took me a long time to readjust so I could at least, not hate going to work. Every job has its ups and downs so this skill will serve you well over your career. Look for makes you feel good at work and focus on that. If there is truly nothing, ask yourself what would be different in a different environment. Sometimes leaving is the best choice, but not the only one. I hope that helps...
Don't get to wrapped up about which service is better. Would Chuck Yeager have been a rock star in the Army? Or Patton awesome in the Navy? What I mean is there is excellence in all services and you get out of it what you put into it. I would find out which service has the most health care facilities. This would provide the most opportunity for variety and travel. Or the service that provides you the best offer. You do need to contact a health care recruiter, they are far better, as many have noted on this site. Good luck.
It is hard to say without knowing all the details. Is this a coworker? If you did nothing wrong his threat to notify the board of nursing is just smoke. But if he fabricates a history between you he could turn this into a harassment charge. Although, it sounds like YOU have a harassment charge against him. His behavior is unacceptable. Is this someone who should be working in healthcare? Someone throwing out threats after being rejected? If you have any further trouble with him I would report him to HR. Good luck.
So he does so many pullups that he though his penis was smaller in comparison to his ripped lats and biceps?
What isn't clear is if patient information was in the screen shot. As an educator (different legal status than a student) I take screen shots of labs all the time. But, I am always careful to leave any patient identifier out of the screen shot. I think this is a critical difference. If the patient name or number was visible, then yes it is an obvious violation.
Hey what about Excelsior? I have two degrees from them.
Not only is it an obvious HIPAA violation, but she is also degrading a patient and using her status as a nurse to "entertain" her friends. On the face of it, she has no business being in any position of trust. You worry that it will ruin her career? I think you should worry she will actually become a nurse. This is where nursing advocacy comes in. As an advocate for patients, this should be reported.
You can report to the feds here U.S. Department of Health & Human Services - Office for Civil Rights
Here is the NCSBN page on reporting nurses Filing a Complaint | NCSBN
You could also report to the school but this might not be confidential.
