    I wonder if there are studies as to hourly rounding and obesity. I just dont see the heavier nurses leaving their seat. We have trackers at our facility for call bell responses. I would imagine there are disparities and others are forced to pick up the slack. My obese coworkers are very smart and sometimes i am sure they are multi tasking better than i can. Sometimes I accidentally stubble into a room that needs my attention just because i am up and walking around. Nursing is a very physical job and i am sometimes frustrated by those that dont take it seriously and just sit all day charting. I basically have to workout on my days off to have the stamina to do the job. Crazy that this is so taboo while discussing someones smoking or diabetes is not. And we cant touch the subject if someone is 100lbs overweight and not yet diabetic. We can only address this issue if a concurrent subsequent health issue has been diagnosed. And yes skinny nurses can be lazy or sickly. I like that at least most of our MDs are of healthy weight but the mid levels are heavy too.

    Had a comfort care patient with a heartbeat of like 5 per minute with agonal breathing. Super close to dead. I call the doc and tell him he is dead, doc checks on patient and he asks, "what is the definition of dead?" He died 2 hours later = no heartbeat.

    I spiked my bag, didnt "off" the roller and spilled some down the infusion pump. Family complained. A small amount is a huge mess. I am super careful now.

    I don't think we should give the air bubble. It's just there to protect the small dose in the vial from prematurely ejecting!😀shoot out the air 1st. It probably hurts more if injected.

    One evening in an empty room there was a creepy face on the TV which was off and upon closer view it was just the furniture arrangement reflection. We took pictures of it (creep face) and I hope I never a spend a night in the room! The next week a PA was admitted to the room and she was just fine!

    Western Governors university. Online and if you do it soon out of school you may get a grant. 4000 each semester and I did it in 2. 3 is more common. I only paid 1500$ my first 15 units. A semester is 6 months long. One class at a time.

    Kaplan for me but in reality it was nursing school that was the prep for NCLEX. Scares me that one would think they are smart enough to not have to study for their big nursing test. Use your concepts from school. I have noticed that the smart ones are failing NCLEX. There are nursing concepts that must be learned apparently, it's not about just relying on being a good test taker. Also seems that the males are struggling with NCLEX????

    Insulin pen and a metoprolol 100 that needed to be returned to pixis. I try to empty pockets to my nurse bag for this reason. I live 45 min away. I don't think I could even drive back. I might fall asleep.

    24 for an experienced LVN and 28-30 for a new grad RN. Hospitals in nevada don't hire LVN anymore only Snf's. (As far as u know)

    I love nurses pocket drug guide. I pay the $10. It's so worth it for a speedy lookup and no internet.

    Agree so much with bluedawn, she describes my clinical experience. I still feel like I really haven't seen what a nurse does. I just do my own thing in med-onc. It's been 3 years since graduation. I am a good nurse who seems to still do too much CNA stuff, but that's ok!
