  5. Would you be insulted by this?
    Insulted? No. Not at all. We have polo shirts available with the hospital logo and I did buy some. No one has to purchase a shirt if they don't want one. For the most part, we are...

  6. Who went straight for ADN?
    No medical experience whatsoever. 2nd career choice. No problem getting a job as a registered nurse. I think what Commuter mentioned is true - most folks do not have medical experience. Good...

  7. Paper or computer cumulative health records?
    Paper - all paper. Of course I write plans and reports on the computer . . but I print them out on paper. We have Aeries but the teachers want the H&V results in the health insert of the...

    We schedule a month out and we all have very busy young kids so I get what Mandy was saying. Weekends have always been full of things for my kids to do with an occasional weekend to just relax and...

    No - I don't think you don't know the definition. I was being a little bit playful - doesn't go over well on the internet. So, sorry about that. Carry on.

  12. "Saunameters"
    The first time I heard "sont" a meter . . .was in a childbirth class 31.5 years ago. It sounded odd to me. I've heard it off and on during the years since then. I say "cent" a meter. I say...

  15. Becoming a nurse
    Honestly, you have 4 boys under the age of 6 and your husband works 6 days a week so I think you should focus on them and leave nursing aside for now. Maybe when your boys are all in school, you...

    The OP specifically said this wasn't to be a bashing thread. So I agree with you. Nurses are held to high professional standards, regardless of their faith or lack of faith in a higher being.

    I was thinking just the opposite when I first read it - If you are a nurse, you simply MUST believe in evolution or you are a simpleton. ;)

  21. Elementary school & harassment
    Some school nurses teach the sex ed classes so I was wondering about whether that meant the nurse was part of it too. We are Mandated Reporters for abuse as well. Admin is involved. And the...

  24. Parents that are nurses
    We don't email parents. So, a letter or phone call is the way we communicate. I worked 3 a.m. to 3 p.m. shift for 9 years and I did not have a phone in my room at all. So, no one could...
