    Nobody escapes nursing school unscathed. Anyone who says otherwise is lying. Nurses who make it are strong, determined, and don't back out of a fight.

    If if you had a patient who said "I want to live, please help me!" had a 50 year smoking history, was total care, MRSA/VRE, stage 4 cancer, and was doing badly, would you say that it's not worth trying to save them because "the amount of stress, disappointment, and lack of confidence to succeed"was too much?

    Of course not! And you have to decide for yourself if your nursing career has a DNR or wants to live too!

    You said that this one F doesn't define you, but if you quit then you will have decided that it, in fact, DID!

    Now get back in there and make sure your student loans weren't for nothing!!

    Is this your first tattoo? You might want to try just one before deciding on an entire sleeve.

    Outside of that, no one seems to care anymore about tattoos. You will get a lot of shade from coworkers if they think they're unprofessional. A topic search will show you what I mean.

    And don't hesitate to look that provider square in the eye and quietly say, "Don't. EVER. Speak. To. Me. Like. That. Again."

    I was lucky enough to be able to take time off until pre-k. I am glad that I did, but my job was not there when I returned.

    This is a highly personal choice to make. There will be pros and cons to any of them.

    Oh and don't get me started on shoe designers! It's all about crocs versus flip flops.

    First, you draw up the entire vial into a syringe and waste all but your dose needed. You take the rest of the syringe and dilute it into a 10ml syringe.

    Give all of the larger syringe.

    Anyone interested in a "pet peeve regarding doctors" thread?
    While I do have pet peeves, it is usually from a particular person rather than providers (MD, PA, NP) in general.

    I would rather see a thread on doctors who have gone above and beyond. That way instead of encouraging divisiveness between doctors and nurses, we would be encouraging professional respect.

    Edited to add: ps. If you look at the md version of allnurses, there are hugely more providers standing up for us than bashing us, and the rude ones are almost always students or otherwise insecure about themselves.

    WHAT?! So they have like 3-4 full syringes of narcotics and benzos in their pocket and have to keep track of which pt they belong to??!

    Forget that! I like my license where it is.

    An interesting sidenote: The term trolling comes from fishing, where you drag bait around in the water and wait to see what bites.
