    I assume you are still in school? If your nursing program offers remedial math take it! I never needed it and everyone thought I was crazy for going to a class I didn't need at 7 am. But...

  4. Is this practice illegal?
    This isn't illegal so long as it is being put in under your name and just putting in the doctor that ordered it. I work in an outpatient clinic and our doctors are only required to come in and see...

  5. How much is too much?
    I think it depends. I work in a chronic dialysis clinic. My patients know I have kids and their names and ages. They know my husbands career as well. That is really as far as I go though. I do see...

  6. Why do people insist on coming to work sick?
    At least where I work it is the culture. I work in a small clinic with around ten employees. Our nurse manager prides herself on coming in when she is sick and never missing. Because of this she...

  7. U.S. Nurse moving to Sweden
    It also depends on how you are moving. Is you husband a Swedish citizen? If not finding a job (after you get a BSN) will prove difficult. As a member of the EU, Sweden hires citizens of the EU...

  8. Nurses with tattoos and piercings
    It really depends. I have a full sleeve and several other visible tattoos. They had to be covered in school for clinicals. No big deal. Long sleeves and band aids worked fine. At work I can show all...

  10. What Baffles You?
    I have a beautiful full sleeve. But I don't pay for tattoos. I am friends with an amazing artist. You never know what the case may be.

    I wear prescriptions lenses. However I really have thought about getting LASIK and wearing non-prescriptions. I like the way I look with glasses but not needing them would give me the options to own...

  14. Cursed at a patient-fired
    I still wouldn't go into details. When asked why just state that the facility wasn't a good fit for you. Why would you ever tell someone you cursed at a patient and expect them to give you a job? ...

  17. What's the BEST nursing shoes?
    I just bought some Danskos today too. They do flip-flop but I was informed this is how they are supposed to fit. It allows for your feet to swell as they can do after a 12 hr shift. Haha. So far I...

  20. Omg!  Passed!
    Looking back, studying for the NCLEX seems overwhelming. Do as many SATA questions as you can and then study infection control. Those would be my suggestions. It is impossible to know everything, but...

    I took the NCLEX on 5/23 and found out yesterday that I passed. I only had 75 questions, but at least half were SATA so I was a bit worried. I did get the good pop-up on PVT but I wasn't relying on...

  22. Kentucky Childrens Hospital
    I don't work there so I can't attest to how it is. I do know they lost magnet status in 2011. I think they only renew every four years for magnet status, so they may be getting it back in 2015, buy...
