  1. Don't You Just Love It?
    I love it about as much as I love the pretense of "Articles" on allnurses. Seriously, this feature is ridiculous on an anonymous internet forum. All that separates articles from regular posts is the...

  2. Masturbation roll call (and other, TMI conversations at nurses station)
    Masturbation is glorious, it doesn't need further glorifying at work.

  3. A nurse who doesn't breastfeed
    And re #5... it's not a reason not to but it's a reason why some women give up or don't try. If support for breastfeeding wasn't important, we wouldn't need lactation consultants. I think it's...

  4. A nurse who doesn't breastfeed
    This is what I did. Logistically, it's the work of breast feeding and bottle feeding and the benefits of neither. I made it work and I know a lot of women do but there were weeks where I was fueled...

  7. Nurses selling at work?
    I'd have mentioned something to the doctor but I don't think it's a patient's place to remove things from the walls. That's a boundary overstep, IMO.

  9. A nurse who doesn't breastfeed
    I was able to pump at work for a year. Initially I pumped 3 times a shift but was quickly able to drop down to 2 pumps a shift. My unit was slow enough that it wasn't a problem although there was...

  10. A nurse who doesn't breastfeed
    Not all formulas use corn syrup. Do you find your communication tactics are effective in encouraging breastfeeding? Because I find your language especially judgmental and inflammatory as well.

  11. Nurses selling at work?
    I didn't select any of those answers. I don't mind a catalogue out I can browse and buy or not buy from but any active selling really irritates me. I might be more inclined to buy something if it's a...

  12. one that people here don't talk about: making more financially
    I have coworkers who advised the same thing, that with PRN you get more money in your pocket, but the government is actually pretty smart and will get its money from you whether you earn it at one...

  13. one that people here don't talk about: making more financially
    403b/401k roll over to your new employer when you leave. The amount of money that you put in from your paycheck is always yours (plus or minus market change but don't get hung up on that especially...

  14. why nursing is a mess. three simple facts
    There are a lot of things that frustrate me about nursing as a profession. But...fees? For licensure? That wouldn't even *make* my list let alone top it. I think the bickering over education makes...

  15. one that people here don't talk about: making more financially
    Just a note of caution about per diem and prn jobs. My first year working prn on top of my regular job I got screwed on taxes because the prn job withheld based on how much I was making at the prn...

  16. Have you been in a public situation where you had to use your nursing skills?
    Yes. I get asked for juice and ice and extra pillows constantly when I'm out in public.

  18. The most ridiculous birth plans you've had the pleasure of reading
    With respect, ratlady called the pacifier birth plan mom an "ignorant weirdo." She explained away the "ignorant" portion in a later post as being a totally non-judgmental thing to say, but....c'mon....

  19. "Breastfeeding benefits overstated" study?
    If there's a body of proof supporting breastfeeding instead of just assumptions, it can be useful in drafting policies that affect women and support breastfeeding. Laws requiring employers to support...

  20. "Breastfeeding benefits overstated" study?
    Thanks for your thoughts on it, klone. That definitely helps me place it in a better perspective. When I first read it I wondered why I was exclusive pumping like a chump if the benefits were only...

  22. "Breastfeeding benefits overstated" study?
    I'm definitely interested in hearing what you think of it. It looks at long term benefits not short term ones so I don't think it argues that breastfeeding isn't beneficial, just not as beneficial as...

    I think it's fine to point out that those vitals are their responsibility. I don't like getting my midnight vitals before 11pm, and when I work without an aide I start getting my vital signs AT...

  24. Night weekend track job? Worth it?
    I think my program is pretty great though. I work 2 days a week, have 8 days of vacation a year. It's about a 64% shift differential too. I only qualify for the benefits PT employees get but am on...

  25. Night weekend track job? Worth it?
    I work weekend nights. We get a great shift differential for committing to work weekends and it allows me to work part time instead of full time. There's no other way I'd be able to swing that. And...
