    I'll bite...

    So your theory is that because the nurses that you know that got their licenses revoked all did something illegal/ very serious that all nurses who have their licenses revoked did something implicitly illegal and/or very serious?

    Think that logic is a little faulty there sister!
    I've spent some time reading the disciplinary actions summary that is part of my state's BON newsletter. While it's not a scientific survey by any means, the vast, vast majority of suspensions and revocations involve impairment or diversion of controlled substances, followed by record falsification. The OP is pretty close to the mark.

    You can probably look at the causes for discipline at your state's BON website.

    Bingo. If this wasn't the admitting physician, there was no reason to call that late. It's just completely inappropriate. This isn't a case of a "rude doctor", it's a rude nurse. Would the OP have called a family member that late to ask the same question? And I wonder, if a telemarketer had called the OP that late, if maybe they wouldn't have done a little yelling too?
    Yes, but the OP indicated that it was hospital policy that the call be made. The policy may be coocoo, but you still have to follow it, especially if you're new.
