    I am black, so I can't really say for sure. Maybe it is true from white nurses, but for black nurses...I doubt it.

    Not that this matters, but is your job inpatient?

    I rarely see 10s offered. My bf and I talk about this alot and if I didn't work acute care, I would love a M-Thursday gig, four tens, and have every Friday off.

    First, it is never ok to yell at your colleagues. That behavior is totally unacceptable.

    That being said, yes, the pharmacist should have contacted the precribing doctor to come up with an alternative medication. Their "advice" was out of their scope of practice and that needs to be brought to their attention.

    Birth trauma would be more appropriate. Calling it rape is offensive to those who've actually been raped.

    Otherwise, I am absolutely sure that this stuff happens all the time unfortunately.

    And yeah the fiance...dump him. A person who wants to hold you back and threaten you for something like what you've described is not boyfriend material.

    The shift I lost a baby whose gestational age at birth was less than 23 weeks and not quite a week old. :/ He was the tiniest baby the unit ever had, and I had to watch as he died in his mother's arms. I had to excuse myself to go the break room...I was in tears.

    I don't think anyone is being rude, but they aren't sugarcoating anything either. Realistically, very few places are offering sign-on bonuses, generous tuition reimbursements or student loan forgiveness. Those days are long gone.

    Have you looked up Dave Ramsey? He is pretty awesome and can help you with his "Total Money Makeover" guide.
