  5. New Nurse ... not distinguishing myself as brilliant

  6. New Nurse ... not distinguishing myself as brilliant
    I encourage you strongly to concentrate on administrating medications safely. Medication errors can seriously harm patients. I was taught in nursing school never to take short cuts with medication...

  8. New grads in specialties without the basics
    I don't think anyone is looking down on new grads because they are inexperienced. The point that some people on this thread are making is that while hospitals should ideally provide adequate...

    Grn Tea, I remember you writing a post some time ago where you complained about how inept the nurses were who assessed you in the ER when you were pretty ill, and how you had to tell them what to do....

  14. New grads in specialties without the basics
    Start in a less fast paced unit with patients that are not generally as unstable. Watch and do there, ideally with a good orientation/preceptor. When you have developed some experience and...

  15. New grads in specialties without the basics
    The point that more experienced nurses are making, is that what you consider is best for "you" is not necessarily best for the patient. It's not about the nurse; it's about the patient. A new nurse...

  18. One healthcare risk manager's view of individual nursing malpractice insurance
    Physicians generally have much higher incomes than nurses, so while "offshoring" their assets, which is harder to do today anyway with the tightening up on reporting requirements of offshore assets,...

  20. Why is it inappropriate to stand up for yourself?
    dudette10, I have already expressed what I have to say on this topic. It is fine with me if you interpret what I have said in whatever way you wish to, and it is fine with me if you disagree with me.

  21. Why is it inappropriate to stand up for yourself?
    Go back to PedsRN's post where he/she said that nurses and physicians are peers. I disagreed, as nurses and physicians are not peers (peers means equivalency in, for example, education, training,...

  24. Why is it inappropriate to stand up for yourself?
    My point was that by referring the question to the physician, the physician can choose to answer the question as he sees fit, or to defer the question. No-one is necessarily made to look silly.
