    even though it mostly consists with random classes, such as liberal arts classes.
    No. I think I had TWO liberal arts classes that I had to take as part of the BSN. All the rest were BSN-related.

    I have heard of the studies that show that BSN hospitals improves patient outcomes and resuscitation outcomes compared to ADN hospitals, etc but I can't help but doubt that.

    Maybe someone has good explanation to this?
    Just because you may "doubt" it doesn't mean it isn't true. That's why studies are done in the first place, because gut feeling isn't the way healthcare should be practiced.

    It's the scientific process.

    My supervisor came in and stated that I was no longer suppose to be there and to give her the notes from the CNA's so she could finish documenting for me
    Seriously??? She was going to document for you? that's like, third party. The CNAs should be fired for not documenting. That's some kind of funky.

    The American Association of Nurse Attorneys has a referral service on their website. Good place to start. TAANA Executive Office - Home

    In those shows, patients in the background of shots have the faces "fuzzed" out. They never show a patient list, screen shot of a patient's chart, etc. I'm sure the patients who are featured on those shows sign very detailed releases about what information can and cannot be revealed on the show.

    My hospital had something similar going on, and they needed a release from everyone and anyone that might be caught on camera.

    I declined

  • Jul 11 '14

    All of those people featured sign releases to appear, and certainly the hospital and perhaps even the participants are being financially compensated.

    If it really frosts your buns, make sure your charting reflects what occurs. "2145. 1800 Lab results returned at 2030. K+ at critical low levels (2.3), PVCs 6-8 /minute. Dr. Smith R1 notified, requested KCl 20mEq over 1 hour stat. PVCs resolved."

    And I completely agree-- the other house staff and the faculty know perfectly well who saved the R1's butt. Better, he knows it, and will listen to you the next time you warn him about something important. That's why they call 'em teaching hospitals.

    I will always remember with great fondness the internationally-famous surgeon who toured the new house staff every July 1 through our ICU and told them, mildly but pointedly and within our hearing, "If any of these nurses tell you to do something, you do it, and if I ever hear of you abusing one of them, you are out of my program." He said the same thing in the OR. As a result, the house staff learned to listen to us, learned a lot from us, and there were never any tantrums or thrown instruments. Ever.

    The resident/attending knows where they got the information from.....it's the nature of the beast.

    This happens in all professions. CEOs take credit for supposedly 'saving a company' when it was really some middle manager who came up with the strategy. Principals take credit for allegedly 'turning things around for the better' at slummy schools when it was really some schoolteacher who bestowed the bright ideas.

    Based purely on anecdotes, it seems that the lower one's rank, the less likely one will be credited for any positive outcomes that they create.

    I work as a PCT at north hills hospital here in dfw. And im going to school for nursing because i want to PLUS they're paying for it. BUT i keep getting talked out of nursing by most of the nurses on my floor (PCU) and when i rotate the nurses on med-surg too. So is nursing really that bad? I want to be a nurse and work in L&D but they really freak me out with all this dont be a nurse talk.
    If a career in Nursing is really what you really want to pursue... Then go for it! People will tell you many things but you have to experience it for youself. You are a PCT... As a former Tech from L&D I know you have seen and heard that there is good and bad in the field but all I can say is at the end of the day, though all the disappointment of my facility I know I have tried my best to assist for the the best outcome... And even if it wasn't the best outcome that I have foreseen, I tried my best! That being said DO IT! If that's what you want to do. And if all else fails theres always Nurse Practitioner to move on to. I wish you well in you studies. Greg

    I have learned that in many cases, it seems like it's the people. I think many people are just unhappy and when a job fails to provide that happiness, they blame the job. I think you can be happy anywhere, as long as you choose to be happy.
