I am happily retired after 35 years of Labor and Delivery nursing. My passions now are two wonderful grandchildren, quilting on my HQ 16, sewing, and going where life takes me with my husband of 28 years. I am primarily conservative with moderate views on a couple social issues.

    If you have an issue with night shift getting more pay, then go to night shift and do nothing for more money.....although I expect you might change your mind after a week or more.

    Some people, like me, know what their usual vitals are and if indeed, they are different from what you have just obtained, it might bear checking into their history. My normal temp is usually 97 point 1 or 2, so even a 99.0 could be indicative of a low grade fever.

    WSNA is not the only union in WA for nurses. We are represented by USNU, United Staff Nurses Union, and I am happy with them. We bargain hard, our contract is a good one, and when we need union rep back-up for grievances, we get it. I have also heard, just last week, one of my co-workers say of WSNA "when WSNA was here, we got nothing. They didn't help us with grievances at all." I guess that's why USNU is ours now.

    By the way, the AR15s used in the terrorist attack were already illegal in California.

    Can't make something already illegal even more illegal and expect them to go away. Well, I guess some would.


    Not that we would ever move back to CA, but IF we were considering it, that would take care of that.

    Another solution which I personally adhere to, is just say no to any extra shifts. I don't go in when they call and are desperate. I feel no obligation to bail them out, even if they whine and cry. It's not my responsibility to staff. It's theirs. If more nurses would work only what their FTE is and nothing more, they'd have no choice, but to increase the FTE's available or hire on agency, traveler's, whatever. Our place relies a lot on guilting nursing into working way over their FTE's and then wondering why people are getting sick or burnt out or just done with it all.
