  2. Is there anything good that being a nurse has taught you???

    I too had this reaction. I accidentally OD'd myself on it, thinking it was Phenergan. Taking every 4 hours! Yikes! I just felt like I couldn't sit still. Just an unbelievable need to keep...

  6. Complications from HCG injections?
    I too tried both. With the hcg my hunger was much better. Also with the hcg I didn't lose weight in my boobs-which is the first place I lost it without the hcg-weird!

  8. "That's where they keep big needles to stick bad little boys."
    If I had a dollar for every time I heard, "be good or the nurse is gonna give you a shot!". Those are the same parents who can't figure out why the kid is petrified to go to the doctor!

  9. Nurses ordering meds
    Yes I guess it would be the same as LTC or a hospital. The orders wouldnt get signed right away there either. And the patient would be getting the ordered meds before they were co-signed in that...

    It was Parlodel. Worked for my first 2. They banned it before #3. Never had so much pain! It was horrible! Couldn't breast feed as kids were highly allergic!

  11. Nurses ordering meds
    Okay I do realize what transcription is, but in the "olden days" we also had the hard copy to follow that the doctor signed. Being it is electronic now-I realize the doctor has to go in and cosign...

  12. Nurses ordering meds
    Okay I have a question about ordering meds. Let's just say that you work in a clinic situation. The patient is seen by the doctor, then the doctor comes to you and tells you his orders. Sometimes the...

  13. im injection
    Yes, I graduated in 2003 and we were also taught not to aspirate. I still do, however, because when I graduated with my LPN in 1993 it was kind of drilled into our heads, so I guess it's habit!

  14. Stupid things said by your non-nurse significant other
    Hubby went to Dr and they prescribed Celebrex. I told him that it is an anti-inflammatory. "No," he said, "It's an NSAID." I again told him yes, it is an anti-inflammatory. "No, I told you, it's...

  15. Things you'd LOVE to tell coworkers...and get away with it!
    No I'm sorry I did not get your 6 am treatments started at 4 am for you. I worked 6 am to 6 pm and then I was told I needed to stay over until 4 am. Sure I had a choice-go home and not have a job or...

  16. How am I going to get the time off for a tummy tuck?
    I'm not gonna lie- when I first woke up I thought, "what the heck did I do?" Only not in those exact words! But that only lasted for maybe a day. The next day I was just taking ibuprofen and doing...

  17. Stupid things said by your non-nurse significant other
    My DH made the mistake of asking if, when I got done with school would I be a "real nurse.". I was an LPN at the time studying for my RN. When I said "yes I AM a nurse," he said, "Yeah but you'll...

  19. Medical Equipment ???'s
    YEP--I agree. I too have an ultrascope and I love it. I had a really hard time hearing with any other ones. You have such a big selection that it is less likely that someone (a doctor or other...

    Yes-you need to have at least 2 years experience in the ER before you can take the CEN. Not saying that you couldn't pass it-but I think it would be very difficult to pass without ER experience. To...
