    It just seems rude to me to suggest publicly that someone should take their nursing discussion somewhere else. Seems like good advice is easily found here and in a user friendly format. Some advice? PM such comments.

    No offense, I like your posts generally.
    She is not telling her to take the discussion elsewhere, she is giving her additional places to get feedback. The Facebook groups that I am a part of have over 20,000 members. You get at least 5-10 responses within the first hour of posting something, and the discussion can be had in real time with notifications when there is a response. The same cannot be said for here but again she did not say to disregard this forum altogether, just to add other avenues of research to her repertoire.

    So others can model appropriate etiquette.

    I mention lots of resources in my posts. I don't tell anyone to take a nursing discussion somewhere else, and certainly not to a competitor of the venue I'm posting on. Can you not see how rude that is? You can not even point to a lack of helpful replies here to look somewhere else for help.
    So others can model appropriate etiquette? You're kidding, right? It is not rude to suggest additional routes for research, even if that suggestion is FaceBook. The only rudeness I saw was your response. Your etiquette is not such as should be modeled.

    It's not rude, at all. Not even remotely.

    So as long as there is some information here other resources shouldn't be suggested for exploration; because that's what you're saying. That is the entire point that forums exist, to exchange information.

    Why didn't you PM your comment instead of posting it for everyone to see since you feel that is the only appropriate method of making suggestions?

    Have you explored any of the facebook groups that are out there for travel nursing? You can get a lot of good advice and recommendations there, as well as here. Good luck to you.

    NotReady4PrimeTime is so right. At our hospital, I could take care of a NICU patient having an open heart procedure, care for them on ECMO, get them off their drips and send them back (about a month's time) - then float over to NICU the next night and be told that the same patient I had in PICU the night before was 'too critical' for my skill set and "Here- you can have all the NAS babies. BUT you can't do your own assessments, you can't give meds and you certainly can't chart!"

    ^^ True story: I was told this by a sweet young thing who was born a full decade AFTER I worked on the drug trials for PGE1 (alprostadil).

    Thanks everyone for your kind words of encouragement. I contacted the board of nursing today and was advised as long as I am not working under the title of CNA that I am employable as a nurse and I would have no issue taking the NCLEX and obtaining professional licensure

    Trolls go back under the bridge.
    Particularly if the troll is claiming a nursing status that he/she has not yet earned.

    Did you make this up? Death by Lovenox?

    I'm very confused. Your profile says that you're a pre-nursing student. Your credentials say BSN, though. You joined in March. You posted once in November (about license loss) and now this. This seems like an odd thing for a seldom participant to run and post about.

    Hospitals I've seen that have point of care testing all have auto-EMR entry. I can't imagine a hospital doing bedside INR monitoring but not having it auto enter to the EMR.

    Even if there was an INR mistake, people don't just bleed to death randomly. Was there an injury then? Were there signs of internal bleeding missed?

    It seems like if this is true, it would be a big liability to post on social media about it.

    Certain professions (nursing, school-teaching, librarianship, social work, psychology) offer mediocre salaries. Guess what they all have in common? These are all female-dominated professions.

    And no, I am not a misogynist. Nonetheless, those who want to become high income earners should consider entering a male-dominated occupation.

    I didn't become a nurse because I had a calling or anything. I was one of those few idiots in high school who had no dreams or aspiration, so my dad said "hey nursing sounds good" and I said "okay"...... mistake. Now, I am no Trevor the psychopath or Mary the maniac, but certainly not a bleeder of heart. I just did my job well and went home.

    I got sick of humanity at ER, so now work at insurance donig medical reviews.

    As I am at that weird age where people around you either make mediocre money vs tons of money, it's hard not to notice those that make a ton, and what irks me is that none of them work at healthcare field.

    My brother who's been in workforce only few years already makes well over 120k, not mentioning bonuses, incentives, 5 star hotels and lux meals, my friend at airline industry living a nice, rich life, a regular marketer at company owning two expensive sports cars...

    Where do these people get these jobs? It seems like unless you're running the corporate side of healthcare, you work your butt off and get few change and a key chain for Christmas.

    Most likely in the next 2 or 3 years.
    Ask at that time. But in the meantime, don't worry. You will no doubt have money to "buy stuff."

    Not working in nursing is stress free from what I hear...
