  5. Why are nursing instructors so intimidating?
    Believe me, once the dust settled I had a word with the unit director, and then the doc, in private. He apologized profusely, and we had a pretty congenial working relationship from there on in. ...

  8. What are your labs/clinicals like?
    Thanks for your replies.....I promised myself early on I wouldn't be the power-tripping instructor who is "out to get" students. I don't like getting yelled at by docs, and I won't yell at students. ...

  12. Diluting all IV push medication??
    Adenocard is one that is never, ever diluted. It's given as a rapid (like as fast as you possibly can) IVP followed by a fast NS 10cc flush. Adenocard's half-life is a few seconds, so you need to...

  25. Have a question about why nursing is a conservative profession.
    I think, as posted earlier, they mean conservative as in no crazy piercings/punked hair/no flip flops etc. Also in the sense that nurses are held to a higher moral standard by the public. If you've...
