  1. Requiring a BSN degree for an ADN scope of practice
    I think because there was a report that patient outcomes are better with BSN nurses there is a push for magnet status at hospitals. Or it could be the hospitals just want to sound better to people,...

  2. Do you chart lies?
    I would never document a turn that wasn't done. That being said, they require documentation every 2 hours. Not 2 hours 1 minute, not 2 hours 30 seconds, it HAS to be every 2 hours or sooner. I will...

  3. All Men Shift
    I didn't take it that way. I'm actually amazed at the attitude of female patients towards male nurses. Male OB/GYN is perfectly fine, but you expect me to have a MALE NURSE? *gasp* That's why I...

  4. All Men Shift
    I have had two male supervisors. One was an absolute nightmare, the other one of the best nurses I will probably ever know. It isn't fair to lump "you men" into a category. It sounds like your unit...

  5. US to Finland. anyone?
    Amber nurse, sorry for the delayed response. That was my point about her being there despite difficulties. She ONLY is there because they reviewed her case and made an exception. When she got...

  6. Of Nursing, Nudity and Public Perception
    One thing to add to my other post. Someone pointed out that the OP seems to be more fixated on the NURSE engaging in after hour activities. I think from the original post it is pretty clear he is...

    DID they call your boss? I would have a word with your supervisor. Also, do you think you would have a better chance applying for a job at the hospital you work at now? You know more people...

  8. Of Nursing, Nudity and Public Perception
    I think when I was pregnant more than once I wondered if being a gynecologist ruined vaginas for my Male OBGYN. Then I realized how silly it was to think that because I have seen plenty of men and...

  9. Being Asked to Come in and Work as CNA...
    I would have to say, I can only dream that they would offer an extra shift as a CNA with RN pay. No med pass, actually getting to spend time with a patient again. You will be very busy with other...

    I am sure in your mortgage loan it never says that the loan is forgiven if you pass away. However, if you were to die suddenly and leave your spouse with a large loan and children to raise she would...

    I remember the first day of nursing school as one of the longest in my life. At least for my school, we had to get all of the formalities out of the way. This means a minimum of 1-2 hours introducing...

  14. Behind $1.2T student debt crisis-scam by education predators;Corinthian College shut
    I feel that the system is set up to completely screw over these students. Student loans will follow you FOREVER. I really don't think this is stressed enough. NOTHING will get rid of this debt. The...

  15. Violation of labor laws- looking up pts prior to clocking in
    I'm going to assume for an example that you work a similar shift to me, three 12 hour shifts per week. You say you have been coming in 30 minutes early for the 7 years you have been working. With no...

  16. EMT, CNA or CMA?
    I would work as a CNA first. If you are worried you can't do the job of a CNA you might want to consider something that is less physically demanding than being an RN/LVN. You WILL have to do the...

    In one word, yes. Everything you have heard about traffic is not only true, but worse when you actually sit in it. The only thing I can assure you is that living in the Inland Empire means you...

  18. Best hospitals and expected RN pay in Orange County area
    I've heard the same thing, it tends to pay more as you get closer to and in LA. If I had 3 years and a BSN I would try for every Kaiser hospital. Hopefully the salary would make up for any commute.

    While I'm not enrolled at CBU, I know the tuition is much higher than a public university. I'm about to start the RN-BSN through CSU Fullerton. Seems to be a good program though, just not one that I...

  22. Best hospitals and expected RN pay in Orange County area
    While I don't know exactly how much they pay, I do know that Kaiser pays the most. I have heard good things about Hoag, but again, don't know the pay. Good luck!

  24. Do you ever contend with pesty ancillary staff?
    While it may be annoying, I just have one comment. Would it be more annoying for them to pop a blanket on top of your patient that FINALLY doesn't have a fever? Or if they decided to grab your NPO...
