  2. nursing a calling?
    AMEN! But in that same view, I believe to be caring and compassionate you have to LIKE being a nurse because after 12-16 hrs and people yelling, upset, gripey, etc it is a prerequisite. This does...

  3. Who am I, the HIPPA police?
    Was it wrong to berate the OP? Yes. Is it Hipaa? No. Is the facility rule superfluous in this case? FWIW I think so, but it's the rule now. If she had walked down to verify her id, it would...

  4. Who am I, the HIPPA police?
    We should have more privileges, but I do agree the problem is with the facilities rule and not the OP/lab tech and they should NOT be given a hard time over the FACILITIES rule. I have read the HIPAA...

  7. Need some advice
    It's not all about what *you* (as an adult person with choices) want. I'll agree to disagree. It's about the kids. What if you only saw your husband just on the weekend or he says okay I'm taking up...

  10. Md's Against Crna's?
    I think we need to do a little publicity ourselves as a profession [regarding the AMA ad thanking the doctor]. I see the same thing in practice. I do all the work, etc. and when the doctor comes in...

  11. Did Anyone Go To Nursing School While Raising Kids?
    It is hard as I see. Don't think it is fair to the kids, though. The kidlets are only young once. Most people in school spend time studying and if they aren't they are thinking about school=less...

    I was appalled in nursing school to hear all the talk of salary too and true a lot of new nurses are that way and just in it for the money. However, you truly have to work in the field to see how...
