    If you gave the CNA's name.. she is now on their radar... for no other reason than YOU have a thought she could be guilty by association.
    I am so jacked up about this.. I must now smoke a doobie and have pancakes AND popcorn.
    You'd better put the marijuana in the pancake batter instead of smoking to prevent a contact high in those around you. Apparently this goes for coke and meth too, in OPs strange little world.

    My favorite post in this thread. And you're doing criminal profiling in a nursing home?

    The Toughbook is what you seek. Panasonic Rugged Laptops - Official Panasonic Toughbook Rugged Computers

    If you do charting through a website or can move it to Excel or any other format then you can get away with an iPad with a LifeProof case.

    Maybe the vent posts from OPs who desire only supportive feedback can color their posts a special color, that way those who are inclined to clarify and offer advice, will know at a glance that type of response is not welcome.

    It irritates me that nobody ever puts the siderails up on the daggone bed.

    Its really simple - on this site, our terms of service state:

    Members cannot call themselves by professional titles, if they do not hold that title. ie. "doctor, Dr., RN, LPN, LVN, Nurse, CNA, RT, MA" etc, unless they are actually licensed and/or certified as such. Use of such titles is protected under most state laws. If you have chosen a user ID name that reflects an unearned professional title, please contact: Admin Office, and submit three (3) names for consideration. An administrator will contact you.

    And since everyone agrees to this when they join - well.....'nuff said....

    I need a pat on the back. I am amazing.

    An interesting sidenote: The term trolling comes from fishing, where you drag bait around in the water and wait to see what bites.

    Slip out the back, Jack. Make a new plan, Stan. Don't need to be coy, Roy.

    Also, you don't have to be near an insurance company's headquarters to work for them. A LOT of nurses telecommute for RN jobs at insurance companies. Honestly, I see posts all the time for BCBS Anthem, Humana, and United and you can live anywhere. In fact, one of those companies is my parent company and I know for a fact you can live anywhere in the US and telecommute as a RN. Just look on Indeed.

    Oh man, you sound just like I did when I graduated! I was so nervous, thought the other nurses were out to get me, assumed the other new grads were not freaking out -- this, of course, is totally wrong. I think some people are just better at hiding it, playing it cool. I actually remembered the day when I wasn't "scared of work anymore" and it was about a year in. Before that I would have panic attacks, get stomach aches, not be able to sleep the night before a shift. I'd end up staying an hour past my shift to catch up on charting. Just know that it will get easier. Don't be afraid to ask the questions you need to because you learning/development as a nurse is important. It's bad if a new nurse is afraid to ask questions because he/she is too scared!

    Is there a more experienced nurse in your unit you could mentor with? Someone you feel comfortable going to with questions or if you need help? They might be able to ease some of your concerns without making you feel worse.

    Lots of deep breaths!
