  3. Am I approaching this in the wrong way?

  5. Med Error
    I'd stay out of it unless this guy makes a lot of errors. He knows he made an error. I'm sure he feels terrible about it. People make mistakes -- even people in the medical profession who know they...

  7. Nursing Superstitions?
    A lot of the nurses on my unit believe that one of the rooms is bad luck and that if a patient gets assigned there it is more likely they will die.

  12. Is this "normal"?
    I don't know if I am just not cut out to be a nurse or this is par for the course. About one out of every 20 shifts I realize that there is something important that I forgot to do. I just get so busy...

    Nurse managers are being paid by administration to squeeze the bedside RN until she screams. It's their job to torture the bedside nurse and if they don't do it, they get fired. Managers are so...

  14. Nursing Stereotypes and a Dumb Society
    I think the public's idea of what a nurse does is what an aid typically does (bed baths, blankets, etc.).

  20. Hazards, Risks, and Problems w/ Nursing
