I work with many Muslim women who do not wear the hijab. They dress modestly and seem to take a lot of flack from patients and other nurses who do wear the hijab.
I dont think a hijab makes makes one woman more devout than one who doesn't wear one.
You are a new grad. What you are currently experiencing is expected. Pass the test of time and work for your respect.
But what do we know? We live in igloos according to one American poster.
I find that offensive. My area only has snow six months of the year!
That is the single most offensive thing I've EVER read on this site. Wow!
BC and Ontario are two difficult job markets. Who knows what they will be like in 8-10 years?
As an American, do you think you can manage to work in a union environment and provide care to all people.
After reading this board for years my eyes have been opened. Americans aren't very pro union. Nor do they seem to understand universal healthcare. There seems to be no concern about the well being of people in general, more of 'an I'm alright jack' attitude and disdain for those who can't afford health insurance down there.
Ive worked with a few USnurs s over the years and we've had to explain the difference between vacation, sick time, etc. We've also had to explain the benefits of unions.
It can be a culture shock moving north of the 49th
I'm sorry but I don't understand what you are worried about. If an outside LPN can do your tube feeds and crushed meds why can't you do them? I've always done them under my scope of practice, we are even responsible to attempt to unclog the tube, if unable to we advise management and the patient goes to acute for a tube change.
I'm not trying to upset anyone, are you unsure of how to do these procedures and need a refresher, or would it upset your workload to assume these duties??
Suck it up and study in Germany. As yo, yourself pointed out the population is aging.
With Frau Merkel's migration policies, you have a huge aging and multicultural population to care for.
Money is nice, but you need the skills to be a NP and many accelerated programmes for no nursing degree holders isn't going to cut it. Do you understand the history of the role you covet? The skills and experience those nurses have/had?
Since it's already snowing here, we can be guaranteed 8 months of winter this year. I am not happy!
