    I learned that sometimes GoFundMe is necessary. It's the only way I'll be able to pay for my husband's funeral expenses. I never knew arrangements were so costly! We both are on Social Security so no resources to speak of, and of course the funeral home wants all their money upfront. Ouch.

    I learned that hospice facilities are a Godsend when a patient's pain is out of control and nothing you give them even touches it. I'm so glad we got him there in time for him to get some pain and agitation relief. His nurse and CNA were top-notch and I'm so grateful that he was able to die peacefully. God bless hospice nurses!
    So sorry for your loss.

    I'm an introvert. I dont talk much with my coworkers, I prefer to work. I do talk with my patients because it breaks the ice and most people need to express themselves (including me - but not 24/7). I am perfectly happy not doing much on my days off.

    I'm also an introvert to the point that I enjoy traveling by myself and I do it on purpose.

    It can be hard because we're forced to be an extrovert at work. I find a quiet corner and chart. I'm a float nurse so I use that as an excuse to not really socialize with staff because I don't know anyone. I also don't discuss my personal life with patients. Like if someone asks if I have kids I don't answer and turn around and ask them the same question. People usually like talking about themselves so I'm good at redirecting conversations so they can talk.

    My favorite part of the day is the drive home because I'm alone with my thoughts. Sometimes I don't even turn on the radio.

    My off days I try to do things by myself. I'm in school full-time so I'm absorbed in my studies. I also go out the restaurants alone and I don't care if people stare. Movies alone and heck I even went to an amusement park alone and had a great time.

    So my advice would be to find as much alone time as you can to recharge. And I agree check out the Myers-Briggs personality test. I'm an INTJ and lol nursing is NOT recommended for my personality type. And coincidently I'm in school for a field other than nursing.
    Hey, I am also an INTJ! Boarderline on the N though.

    Interesting to see how many INTJs there are here. We are supposed to be around 3% of the population.

    I think you have to look up how Alteplase works in order to figure out how Amicar is the "antidote."

    Tell them that you are going PRN because you want to go back to school and want to be able to focus your efforts on that.

    OP, update please. How are you doing? Did you talk to husband and lawyer?

    If this is a one time situation then your response is adequate. Let it go OP. However, if this type of undermining continues, have a face to face chat with him.

    I emphasized the things I learned in nursing school and how I was interested in their hospital in particular. If you have a specialty in mind or at least know you want to work with adults, specify that (but not too specific) on your resume. Don't skip out on the cover letter. As a student nurse I had more of a CNA role. I did have exposure to the other nurses so I was able to ask questions. I made a little more than a CNA, but definitely not as luck as a nurse. About $12.50/hr. Some positions are built to be part to full time during breaks and summer and very PRN during semesters. That's how mine was.
