  1. Should high absenteeism be cause to be fired?
    The guy's sick wife was in a hospital being cared for. He doesn't need to be off then unless she's actively dying. More likely she needs him when she's sick at home and there is no one else to help...

  2. Steps to become a CRNA?
    Yep. My worst memories are organ donations from young people and having a dead baby during C-section and having to just go on because we had two more "emergency" sections that had to be done right...

  3. Steps to become a CRNA?
    If you want to stay in southern Cal., getting a nursing job is a big issue. Turnover is very low and I've read on this site that unemployment for new nursing grads in Ca. is 48%. CRNA jobs are also...

  4. Voluntary Euthanasia
    As legal euthanasia is practiced in Oregon, the PATIENT must drink the cocktail on THEIR OWN. The physician is the provider of the prescription which the patient has to fill on their own. The...

  6. All Men Shift
    I grew up when girls didn't participate much in team sports; but from observations, girls today tend to drop out of sports as they get older and the large majority of girls don't even participate...

  8. Voluntary Euthanasia
    I'm hope I don't, but statistics prove that the large majority of folks spend more in Medicare than they put into the system. Plenty of people will have the opportunity to pay for my care before I...

  10. NP programs that do not require RN Experience/LOR's?
    Imagine what it would take to do such a study. It's impossible because NP's function in such a variety of roles and specialties and vary wildly in responsibility.

  11. NP programs that do not require RN Experience/LOR's?
    I went to an Ivy League school and I'm so sorry that it has become such a weak program in my specialty. They seem committed to keeping fannies attached to their seats, paying tuition and not...

  12. Voluntary Euthanasia
    Please see "How to Die in Oregon." I think it was an HBO documentary. It is a legal option that very few people choose and the patients must purchase and drink the barbiturate on their own. It...

    Wow. I always though I made a mistake going into anesthesia and wished I'd chosen pharmacology. If I'd chosen pharmacology, I could have postponed retirement because 35 years of anesthesia just...

    Outpatient radiology? I'd be running to get that job. If you not the kind of person who thrives on stress and the OR is in a high acuity setting, this is a no brainer! Enjoy your new position and...

  15. All Men Shift
    All those little boys play all those team sports. It makes a difference in the long run. If all little girls played a lot of team sports, we'd probably behave differently in groups also. But hey,...

  16. Nurses being forced to go back to school
    To the OP: Graduated with BSN in 1975. Writing was on the wall then. If you thought you were going to be able to finish a career with ADN in a crowded market, you were living in la-la land. Yes,...

  20. Why are there no nursing jobs available for new grads?  What is going on??
    Putting the message our on Allnurses about the nursing glut isn't so helpful. Probably only a small fraction of people who (understandably) believe the myth that there is a nursing shortage don't...

  22. Think Twice Before Becoming a "NURSE"
    How is closing down diploma programs going to increase the number of nurses? Are you including ADN programs being closed? If nurses were more scarce their working conditions would improve.
