    This may sound a little harsh, but you are NOT nursing material. You took a controlled substance without a prescription. And to top this off, your mother gave it to you.
    Yes, it's harsh. And not necessarily true. For Heaven's sake, have you never messed up? There are no perfect people in this world.

    We don't know anything about this person except he or she was given bad advice, by her Mom no less. If that isn't ironic I don't know what would be. Unfortunately, or perhaps it's really for the best, she took the advice.

    She might or might not be admitted to the school. The school might miss this when they review her as a candidate. Stranger things have happened.

    President Clinton and I think Pres. W smoked dope and they are billionaires. Obama, too? Not sure. And everyone alive has somehow, at some time, fallen short of perfection. Give OP a break.

    Actually being a nurse is a dedication, a passion and commitment. Yes there are people who are born nurses and some have studied nursing but it is not in their hearts, so they get burn out easily. We must remember the reason why we are doing what are we doing. We have a purpose which others cannot do, and it is on our hands to be the best healthcare that can be.

    Here is the link that talks about the RN wages

    Have a good read. Thanks
    Are you saying that it is OK for a nurse who is called to Nursing, perhaps by God, temperament, or whatever to be abused, overloaded, overworked, unable to take breaks?

    While I agree that some are called and some are not, no one deserves maltreatment, no one should be subjected by bosses to the awful way some managers and suits treat staff.

    I don't remember. I was probably feeling kooky at the time.

    Well, recently I had a student with extreme stridor, Sat in the 80's, anxious...The more anxious he became, the more stridorous he became. And wide eyed, and resp rate increasing.

    I had called mom who said she was going to "try" to get here in 45 mins. (Ummm..No.)

    So I called it. I have been a nurse for 30 years...I know kid's airways can obstruct VERY quickly. And once it's gone, it's gone. I was taking no chances.

    When EMS got here, they were very dismissive of his symptoms. They didn't even put O2 on him. They hesitated about transporting or not. He was in the ER for a few hours. MD said "viral." He was given albuterol neb.

    I have ZERO regrets in calling them. But I was treated as if I was an alarmist.

    A child's safe airway will always trump the inappropriate attitude of an EMT any day.
    If you're the one on the scene, you have to/get to call it.

    One of my own kids had an appy, peritonitis. Once back to school a few weeks later, he suffered a dizzy spell or felt weak or whatever - I don't remember at this moment. Got the call from secretary (no school nurse) asking if she should get an ambulance. I told her I'd be over in no more than 10 minutes BUT told her to please call 911 if she had the slightest doubt. I told her that she was seeing him and I was not able to see him at that moment. We wishy-washed back and forth a couple of times, then I ended up telling her to just call 911 as the safest decision.

    He wound up being taken by ambulance to ER. Nurse there told me, when I arrived, that he was fine, he had "jumped down off of the ambulance", "the ambulance ride had been curative". She was a bit snippy but I really didn't care whether or not she liked circumstances or approved of them. She was not at the school earlier to see what had upset the teacher and secretary, so she didn't get to be the decision-maker. Also, those who were with him at the school were laymen. Outcome - my son is well today. And I didn't feel guilty that a few taxpayer dollars were spent on him. I pay my fair share so other peoples' kids can live. Why not my child?

    Sometimes you're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't.
