  1. God Hates Nurses Now
    If I'd been there when you said that, I would probably have laughed right out loud. It's the no doctors in the office thing that really intrigues me. Would Miss Raggedy Ann hair simply let you sit...

  2. Fearbola: Irrational Fear Now Sweeping U.S.
    It's pretty insane out there. When I saw the Ebola "info-graphic" used by my local news broadcast I literally burst out laughing. It was scarier than a horror-movie poster! I could just hear a...

  3. Christmas ethics?
    I've received a number of handmade items like a Christmas tree pin made out of simple wire and some green beads attached with a safety pin. I would never refuse something like that. So far I have...

  4. Nina Pham and/or Amber Vinson
    I think of it as kind of a collective "get well card" written to Nina and Amber. Not really any different than those you might see in real life where everyone signs a big banner or something. I...

  5. Nina Pham and/or Amber Vinson
    Well hopefully if they are here, they will realize that some people can't help spreading their negative opinions even when there are plenty of nearby threads with appropriate cautions in place.

  7. allnurses Ebola Preparedness Survey Makes the News.
    Allnurses is by far the best place to take the pulse (haha) of the nursing community as a whole. My own feeling...sure reporters go ahead and call the ANA but we're the real voice of nursing!

    Nah. Admitting to a little very human schadenfreude doesn't make you evil. Evil is when your dark thoughts are so horrible you'd never dare make light of them on a message board. Somehow I...

    I'm not sure what type of lobbying you thought I was talking about, but yes, I know what roles boards of nursing and state legislatures play generally. That relationship is not uniform across all...

  15. Thoughts on the use of the word "battle" within popular Oncology culture
    I'm so sorry to hear that, Emergent. I think that for me the terms relating to war are apt because most people believe that cancer is an invader that wants to kill them. I know some alternative...

  17. Nurses Who Don't Want to be Nurses
    Because this tends to be a hot button topic when someone brings up the issue. "Calling" tends to be shorthand for the archetype of a nurse as a selfless martyr or an angel. I don't reject it...
