  2. VENT WARNING Nights: Just Need encouragement I guess
    I gotta say....waiting a year to get on days isn't all that uncommon. I'm 4 years and still not at the top of the list. Seniority trumps everything, and should. I have worked nights...

  3. Cincinnati State Technical College-- Has anyone ever attended?
    Cincy State is probably the cheapest option in this area if you want your RN. That being said, you have to jump through some hoops for it. Other schools have less hoops but they are way more...

  4. New Grad student, need advice, should I switch programs? Problems with advisor already...
    Admittedly, I skimmed the majority of those thread. I read all your reasons for hating the RN role and frankly....your issue is a terrible employer, not the profession. It is your responsibility to...

  5. Easter??
    It's a paid holiday at my hospital. Easter is a big one so I'm kinda surprised that so many of you are reporting that it's not considered a holiday.

  6. Clinical nurse leaders----
    Ha, I just posted something similar in another forum. If your hospital is asking you to go back for it, I would assume they will have positions open - that's always a good sign!

  7. Any nurses with fibromylagia or any other disability?
    Gabapentin is a wonderful thing. It took a few weeks, but I feel like a new person. Work is much better, thank goodness. I actually decided on a different career path. I wanted to do NP because it...

  8. Shift Work Sleep Disorder
    This isn't a disorder, necessarily.....some people just can't adjust to working nights. I've been on nights for 6 years, and I only manage because I am very protective of my sleep. Unless I have at...

  9. CNL, anyone?
    Anyone starting or in a CNL program right now? This site is full of NP students (along with the rest of the world lol) but I can't find anything for CNLs. I'm starting this fall and I'm really...

  10. Nurses forced to work as aides
    I work with nurses like the OP. As a PCA, they were my least favorite nurses to work with because I knew I would be responsible for 100% of every "icky" aspect of patient care. No one likes that...

  11. Mixing meds
    I work in inpatient peds oncology. We can't even cut oral chemo on the unit. Everything has to be done by pharmacy for safety reasons. I've never looked into it, but there was a big to-do at my...

  12. Clinical Nurse Leader
    I'm starting my CNL program this fall, and I chose it for similar reasons that apputney mentioned! I'm just worried about the job market.....but I know I wouldn't be happy in the FNP role.

  13. BSN Job without License
    Without a license, you're basically just a candidate that completed a 4 year degree. You could do lots of entry level positions, but you're not going to find anything in health care. If your only...

  18. How long do you wait from graduating nursing school to further your education?
    I waited a year, which was a great decision on my part. The learning curve is pretty steep on my unit and I think adding coursework to that crucial first year would've been too much stress for me....

  19. Oncology Nurse Burnout?
    I don't think your issues stem from being an oncology nurse - that schedule is brutal! A few chosen ones are able to flip their schedules all around without issue, but most people need an established...

  20. "I need to eat, I'm a diabetic!"
    As a diabetic (my endo classes me as "nonspecific" because I have traits of both types - it's made my treatment plan a load of fun!), I'd like to launch into a rant about the disease process and how...

  21. Ebola Nursing Survey:  to Quarantine or Not to Quarantine
    I'm just now catching up on this. I work for a pretty big hospital so we have the staff to do this. Smaller places? Not so much. We can do it even though it isn't necessary. As you can see from this...

    We use K fluids all the time - in fact I usually question if the fluids don't have it! My population is hem/onc, though....and they are notorious for electrolyte imbalances, particularly during chemo...
