  1. Techs on PACU???
    In what way would having unlicensed personnel ACLS-certified benefit patients? I'm not being rude, just curious why you would do this, and to what end? You can't assist in a code more than you...

    Hmm. That's a great story:rolleyes:... but no one said they had the 'answers to life's questions'. Young people are just trying to make it through life like older people are... we're not stupid.

    I am not a crier or a sap. I have been crying for 20 minutes. I don't even know what to say, except that I hope that man and his baby have the best life possible. I need to hug my mom now.

  14. Why do dying people reach upward?
    I would wager that "heaven" being commonly associated with 'up' has something to do with it. Lots of metabolic and chemical processes going on, a dying person's need to feel that there is something...

  20. Should there be a 'White Nurses Association'?
    Interesting topic. I just can't shake the bad feeling I get when I hear "white" organization. I'm a white girl and it makes me a little uneasy- perhaps because of the history of "white" groups and...
