HI, got questions? Just ask. :)
Stay OFF the drugs! In MHO, weed just numbs the brain but it does not take the pain away for ever.
I would have told that nurse sup NO. I already started drinking.
I hate management that panic to fast and call people off just to realize 30 minutes later that they really need all hands on deck. I do not condone such thinking. If you tell me I am off, then I go on to do other things as my mind is already made up.
I go home with pay. I am a salary employee. Other times, I catch up on the tons of mandatory training required or other government related politics.
Have you contacted your BON? It may be a while before anything shows up on your record. Has it been a month? It would not hurt to call the BON and check for yourself. According to some of your postings, I do not agree on how they behave. It sort of boils my blood that there are some spineless lifeforms out there. Good luck.
I find those Pyxis machines are horrible. Sometimes my finger print logs me in under someone else! My facility is aware of this issue. We have manual log in with a username and pass but only after 3 failed attempts to finger in. Its biometrics but I doubt it's the most sophisticated level. .
Patience grasshopper! Patience.... you will get there. Don't be in a hurry.
Are any of those patients currently reading all these stories? If so, could the real slim shady please stand up?
Putting aside the misuse of "stigma" (did you maybe mean "status"?), as long as you can become an RN via an associate's degree (or even a baccalaureate degree, for that matter) nurses will never get the respect physicians do. I'm not saying I think that's a bad thing (personally, I have no problem with the idea of nursing as a blue collar occupation), it's just how the world works.
Once had a patient whose family member downloaded and read the entire user manual for the Drager Evita ventilator. He then fully adopted the role of the expert in vent management, making recommendations on different modes of ventilation, adjusting settings, etc.
