    What are her Mom's thoughts? What has worked in the past? Before the doctor appointment, can you talk to her Mom?

    Does she see an ortho doctor regularly?

    When were her last X-rays taken?

    Baclofen is normally given 3 times/day. Is she only getting it twice a day? ???

    Her doctor can order PT as a consult.

    She needs to be assessed by a physiotherapist and the PT can demonstrate the proper way to stretch her. Do NOT try to stretch her without professional training.

    i seriously doubt you are applying to the same school all 900,000 International members applied to. In my school being a medical assistant means nothing as its not a stepping stone to nursing. An associates in an unrelated area wouldn't help either.
    I think maybe she means she is applying to the same type of school ("nursing") that we "all" went to, not necessarily the same specific school. Still, her question was poorly communicated, in spite of her claims to the contrary.

    Doesn't matter who said what when, but I would love my answers to be:
    "Shut up"
    "No"
    "Go away, let me do my job"
    "You do it"
    "Are you stupid?"
    "I give up"
    "What's the matter with you?"
    "Speak English"
    "Never mind, do what you want - you will anyway"
    "Bye"

    Drug users do not belong in nursing. Period. Go away and let those of us who aren't dopeheads do the care.
    Do you or do you not know for a fact that this woman you "know of" is using? Unless and until you do, you are passing judgement on someone without the facts. You can't do anything about it.

    You sound like a bitter and vindictive woman here. Me thinks there is a personal side to this story.

    I hope you enjoy your narrow little world view. You need to learn to mind your own business. Unless you are prepared to vet everyone who comes into contact with you, you just don't know what is going on in their personal lives, and quite frankly it is NOT any of your business.
    I believe in Karma, and she tends to bite people in the butt. Be prepared, the fall from such lofty heights can be devastating.

    Does everyone have their flounce BINGO cards ready?

    Yes there are people on here who have drug issues. Yet, they are in the minority. Most usually, they do get caught.

    Ive also seen plenty of people on this forum talk about drug use and fear of being caught, so don't even play.

    I would say you got a 35.12% chance, but I have been known to be off a couple percent.

    Do you have proof she is using anything? If not, then let her be. I don't know about the facility where she is working, but some do pre-employment drug testing. She will not have access to and of the medications and narcotics.

    I have a nephew who is a felon for drugs, does that mean I shouldn't be a nurse? He is the only one in the family with this issue, gets out of jail in 3 months. Nor does he live near us, but still.

    Are you a nurse who works with her or are you someone out to ruin someone's life without knowing if she uses or not?

    Sounds serious. You should put her picture up with a warning at the local Greyhound bus station, too. And anyone who walks by without looking at it should get a hard slap to the face.

    Another obstacle I see in your way is your choice of Ontario/BC. Those are the two most popular destinations for the vast majority of IENs and there are very few job opportunities for even locally-educated nurses. Of course, all of the assessments that are required to happen first will bog things down, but you might have more options if you looked at any of the other provinces.

    So true..

    Just wanted to share a story of someone I know who got fired. She worked in an office, and had to run a machine on a patient in a dark room for 30 minutes. She took a selfie of herself, with flash, and posted it on fb saying, "another boring day at my boring job!" Not only did the patient complain of seeing a flash and she thought the girl had taken a photo of her, but her coworkers showed her boss the photo she posted on Facebook. She was obviously fired straight afterwards. Use common sense, people! Even if your Facebook profile is private, you never know who will be willing to out you.

    Eh. Maybe we should all stop arguing, let her make her decision, and then enjoy the popcorn later when the mistake is realized.
