    I will generally point at her and yell "LIAR LIAR PANTS ON FIRE!!" and then I will rip her name tag off her scrub top and throw it on the ground and stomp on it really hard, grinding the heel of my Dansko into it until it's just a pile of sharp shards of plastic. Then I will grab one of the shards of plastic and take her Littmann stethoscope from around her neck and then cut the rubber tubing into pieces.

    Current practice in Pennsylvania an LPN or RN wears identification to clearly show LPN or RN this equates to licensure. Years ago we were not allowed to identify ourselves as an RN this was a gimmick by the hospital to pass off the assistants to the patients as Nurses. I remember going to legislators to get this change made.
    The only person who should be called a Nurse is the LPN or RN. I worked hard for my BSN, MSN, RN. I encourage all nurses to speak up when someone misrepresents themselves. Nurse aides, CNA and Medical Assistants are not not Nurses

    I've been an RN in Pennsylvania for 30+ years; I was never forbidden to identify myself as an RN, and I have worked for different employers over the years.

    I agree that in the past it may have been the practice in some institutions to try to muddy the waters, so to speak, and give patients and family the false impression that staffing levels were better than they really were.

    Yeah, having cancer is so much better than having to work. I'm so glad I got sick so I don't have to work.

    Moved to Pt/Colleague Relations. Very sorry for this experience.
    Since you were just coming out of general anesthesia, is it possible you misinterpreted this?
    My thoughts exactly.

    This article's discussion centers around acute pain and chronic pain, specifically, and does not address oncological pain. We will never revert to not treating pain. My hope is that we are asking questions, probing what is happening with pain treatment, and looking for new ways to address pain management. Joy
    Unfortunately, what I'm afraid will happen is knee-jerk responses to treating pain, and soon we'll be back to the bad to the "bad old days" where patients with cancer pain will be left to suffer. It happened before, so there's no reason to doubt it could happen again.

    I got interested in treatment of chronic non-malignment pain when I had the opportunity to meet Margo McCaffrey years ago; she was generous with her time in mentoring me. When I started working with cancer patients, that was a whole other world. And then when cancer came knocking on my door..., well, you know the rest of the story.

    well, good point, but i have been saving up for my children's college future unlike my parents did for me (that's why i have more student loan debt than the average and i don't want my children to have to go through what i did, plus they'll have a good start). i just don't want to give up on my ultimate dream goal, either.
    no disrespect, but why did you ask for opinions/advice if the only thing you wanted to hear was "yes, you should go for it!"?

    Articles like this scare me. I'm afraid the day may come when I'll just be given bullets to bite for my chronic pain from cancer.

    I don't know how old you are, but a job that offers state retirement benefits? That's almost unheard of.
