    Agreed. I loved the app. Dislike the website. Will probably be on all nurses much less now.

    One thing I have learned in the years of being a ICU nurse is... There are worse things then death!!

    True.

    This may take some real soul searching on your part, about if you are willing to give ICU a chance or think you can swing it. Theres a possibility that once you become accustomed to the ICU environment, you will see codes differently and emotionally handle them better. Perhaps the reason that they affect you more on the floor is that people aren't "supposed" to code on the floor. In ICU, we often see it coming, at least as a possibility, and as the other poster said....there are worse fates. Sometimes death is a relief.

    I have, on the other hand seen nurses train to the ICU only to leave again because they found it too emotionally taxing. It's okay if thats you....but you may never know unless you try.

    Totally normal. It's only been two weeks. Give it a year and you will be feeling much more comfortable. Nursing school only teaches you the basics. The real learning takes place on the job.

    Oh yeah, absolutely normal. Yep.

    I've went to the er a handful of times for a migraine. It was the worse pain I've ever experienced in my life. My cousin went to er for a migraine. Turns out it was a brain aneurysm, so to you it may be a simple headache, but you don't know what that person is experiencing or feeling or that "headache" is actually something else.

    Quote from sevensonnets
    The cooing and holding hands in the breakroom soon gets old and so you move to less public areas of the hospital thinking you'll have some privacy there to avoid being talked about and being scrutinized. But you will be and at least one of you will be counselled about your behavior and somebody loses their job because they're neglecting it. I have seen it happen more than once. It's never a good idea to date someone from work.
    Professionals do not coo and hold hands in the breakroom, or move the relationship to a private area. Professionals keep their private life and work life separate.
    I met a DH at work ( during a code no less). We dated, and eventually married. No counseling or job loss was required!

    You're coming across as a little creepy to me. Is it just me?? The detailed plans involving someone you "barely know" are strange.
    Comes across to me as a little shy, and afraid of rejection.

    Have you never submitted to a drug screen before? The toilet water is always blue.

    There was obviously a reason they were suspicious. You submitted and it was positive. There are always three sides to a story. I guess I'm the only one not buying yours.

    If you are truly innocent then you should know to immediately get a lawyer, not come on a website. Do you have malpractice insurance?

    We cannot offer legal advice. That is what you are in need of. I would not have called the BON or your state monitoring program. Now, you are on the radar. Good luck and hire an attorney.
    I would've come on here if this happened to me. I would be freaked out to an untagilable level & would look to other nurses for advice/consolation since they would be the only ones who understand.

    I don't know if you know but there are drugs out there that create a false positive, it doesn't mean that one is a drug user.

    I remember when I was pregnant & my OB/GYN prescribed me a certain medication. I was applying for a new job & I had to take a drug test, it popped positive. I obviously hadn't done any drugs but I knew it was the medication my OB/GYN prescribed.

    I don't see what's so odd about her story, she's just scared crapless & I don't blame her.

    Will a nurse with a Master's degree put pt's on bedpans?

    Yes.
    As long as I have worked in this business, there have been MSNs who have HAPPILY placed pts on beds pans as a staff nurse.

    In 1965, the American Nurses Association promulgated a position paper that would require that within 10 years the BSN would be the minimun academic requirement for entry into the profession. Why didn't this happen you may ask? Why in 51 years did this not happen?
    I will not bore you with the details except to say: easier to spew them out to sell them out to the lowest bidder.
    No offense intended to the ADNs and Diploma nurses or LPN/LVNs who often train the new BSN graduates. To them I am in their debt.

    I think for the relevance and growth of nursing as both a profession and academic discipline, growth toward more BSN will be necessary. Nursing has been around forever, but as far as an actual profession built on a system of knowledge, research, and theory it is in it's infancy. For the profession to have a better standing and delineation against other disciplines, I think the move to BSN is of utmost importance.

    I have less than a year to complete my bsn and will be going on to my msn right after. I think being educated is very valuable in healthcare, and I don't think it's appropriate for nursing to be behind pharmacy and physically therapy. Why should nursing be one of the few fields where an associates is acceptable? Also I know there was another thread about a bsn being "bs"....It's not. What I have learned already had made me a better thinker and nurse. We take anther health assessment course and an amazing course on genetics and genomics. Love it.
