    This is true, but some patients still desire this intervention for a variety of reasons.

    Just trying to show that patients should be given full information from a variety of perspectives so they can give informed consent to whatever they choose to do.

    You have to keep in mind that cancer cells require more nutrients than normal cells & when nutrition is supplied the cancer cells feed first. Less nutrition can amount to slower growth of the cancer cells, in some cases.

    Cancer cells literally steal the food away from the body's normal cells.

    There is an AAS in Dallas-think it is in Irving to be precise.

    Avoid Favorite because they are known to say there is work and cancel right before the shift.

    The criteria for hospice is that two physicians must cerify that if the condition runs its normal course they estimate a six month or less prognosis for the patient. In addition, there are disease specific guideline, called LCDs, that can be used to qualify the patients terminal status.

    Here is a link to get an idea of what I am talking about

    If you use a primer first, then it won't settle into the pores and wrinkles. Also, a dusting with mineral veil helps. It is the only makeup that I have used that doesn't wear out half way through the days because of the oil wells I have disguised as pores.

    Don't think the CEN without the experience will help you get the job. Joining the ENA would probably do you better when looking for an ER job because it will demonstrate an genuine interest in that specialty. Try to go to chapter meetings and make your face known. It wouldn't hurt to show up to at the ED where some of those nurses work (the ones that you meet at the chapter meetings) and find the back door approach to landing a job in the ER.

    This is more common than you might think.

    The only hope would be to talk to the Nurse Educator for the floor and ask the N.E. to talk to the manager.

    Have been in this position and started looking for a new job as soon as the mention of going it alone 4 weeks after graduation from school was made-my preceptor went on maternity leave on week 4 after orientation started. And, it was a Neuro ICU floor where I was expected to take 2 patients on my own.

    Had no problem finding a new job just telling the truth of what was going on.

    FYI: High employee turnover ratios don't look good for a manager at their review time-----hint, hint

    i don't understand these statements.
    what is the manipulative directive?
    and who is questioning the choice of another's religious faith?

    contextually, i very much agree with your post, lori.
    i wasn't under the impression that anyone was bashing the catholic faith, at all...
    i (and others) are condemning the act of the pope covering up for those who molested these children.
    still, i am very much in agreement that Christians need to focus on what Jesus represents to them, and stay true to that.
    this would apply to any doctrine/religion/belief.

    I was referring to the original post & not anything else after that. If you go back and reread it you may see what I saw. ANY person in a leadership postion, with the potential to influence others, has a certain responsibilities... That is all I will say on this matter, except to state my disappointment.

    just had the urge to remind of these passages:

    "stop judging, that you may not be judged.

    for as you judge, so will you be judged, and the measure with which you measure will be measured out to you.

    why do you notice the splinter in your brother's eye, but do not perceive the wooden beam in your own eye?

    how can you say to your brother, 'let me remove that splinter from your eye,' while the wooden beam is in your eye?

    you hypocrite, remove the wooden beam from your eye first; then you will see clearly to remove the splinter from your brother's eye..."

    "but when they continued asking him, he straightened up and said to them, "let the one among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her..."

    i am astonished on how just one area of corruption (or as some would think of as evil) prevelent in all facets of society is being focused on and chosen to be part of a manipulative directive.

    i really have an equally hard time understanding why someone would question the choice of another person's religious faith, just my opinion.

    However, that being said, there are some people on here that are very encouraging and supportive. I appreciate you guys more than you know. I hope you know who you are. Unfortunately sometimes it only takes one bad apple to spoil your thread.
    I totally agree with you on this...

    A lot of that has been cleaned up believe it or not.

    I wish I could say I see what you see. Maybe the degrading and attacks are more selective. I rarely post here anymore because of some of the viciousness displayed, together with selective moderation.

    I really hate having to say this and truly miss the friends I have made here. It just isn't the same anymore, IMHO.

    With minimal regulatory control over the healthcare insurance industry, maintaining employer-based healthcare insurance (reducing personal options for chosing one's supplier of healthcare insurance coverage), eventually being financially penalized for opting not to feed the healthcare insurance industry & not providing a public option (buying in to the same coverage as congress has),
    I cannot see how the Obama Bill is going to produce positive outcomes (as it relates to improving healthcare for the American people).

    i loved this song as a kid.


    Me, too

    Sang it to my kid when she was a baby when i rocked her to sleep. I heard her singing it while washing some dishes some 20+ years later and asked her how she knew the song. She couldn't remember

    Thanks for bringing back some wonderful memories
