    A co-worker nurse has bragged to me 3 times now that our agency has missed that her BLS expired. She is glad she didn't have to re-cert.

    Um, if she is actually on a case right now, I would definitely slip word to the agency. Geez. Pretty shameless.

    Maybe I have a lax conscious, but it wouldn't bother me. If she were saying, "I don't remember how to do CPR. I hope my patient doesn't code!" ...that would bother me more.

    Yeah, that!

    You really don't forget, if you've ever done it. Yeah, there are changes to it constantly. But that just means next year they will say what they taught you now is wrong. Some require it updated every year and others every two years. Being a little late taking the class again probably won't hurt.

    My employers can "forget" to provide my paycheck, but they surely won't forget to request my CPR update.

    It's been expired for 2 years.

    Two years. That is very telling about both the individual and the employer.

    I think it shows how little she cares about her reputation. I take pride in keeping up with my certifications on my own. It's part of being a professional.

    It's one thing to quietly "one up" the system (and in this situation, I don't agree- she could harm her own license.) It's quite another to brag about it. This to me is a red flag. And in poor taste!
