  1. dismissed from program/ hipaa violation??
    You and your friend will understand better when you become nurses. I'm guessing it's hard to get a grasp of things right now because you're on the "other side." This is why a student should really...

  3. dismissed from program/ hipaa violation??
    Your friend mentioned that they are reviewing your case. Is there a chance you will be able to complete your nursing program?

  4. dismissed from program/ hipaa violation??
    This is your friend's battle, not yours. She messed up and she has to be the one to face this and show the school why she was wrong and that she learned something through this whole ordeal. I...

  5. dismissed from program/ hipaa violation??
    I agree that we likely don't have the full story. A student who has crossed boundaries several times most likely was warned several times as well. To the OP, as a nursing student, your friend was...

  6. dismissed from program/ hipaa violation??
    Your friend was out of bounds, but I don't think the dismissal was justified or that the situation was even grounds for a dismissal; clearly it wasn't since they had to put it under the guise of a...

  7. DNR and Hospice
    Seriously? Cut him some slack. He did not make an error. He did not kill a patient. He asked a question about something he didn't fully understand. And even though he was railroaded on here, he said...

  8. Every other weekend & holidays??
    I believe if the OP really researches the job market in her area, she may just find what she's looking for. There is no prescribed pathway in nursing and "paying your dues" is starting to become an...

  9. DESPERATE for help!
    Well, why do you think you keep failing? Is it because you don't understand the material? Are you studying enough? Do you have test anxiety (although I think you would have already passed if this was...

  10. Every other weekend & holidays??
    1) School Nursing 2) Clinic Nursing/Ambulatory Care 3) Case Management (some new grads get lucky) 4) Try working with nursing agencies and see what they have 5) Maybe Home Health (not really...

    People, please do remember that this is the internet. Expressions and emotions are sometimes not felt. It is clear that the OP is sharing her recent experience caring for a population that some...

  12. Too Young..Rejected from Graduate School
    I'm going to side with you on this one, OP. I may be a bit biased because I've been rejected for management positions and have also received the, "You're too young" BS despite my experience and my...

  14. A Response from the OP on the issue (poor choice of words) on the concept of a ADN Vs. BSN
    OP, there are going to be many different opinions because this is the internet. Not everyone will see your point of view on things and not everyone will agree with you. I am going to say something...

    I'm guessing she has a huge interest in urology or andrology.

  17. Calling a transgender patient an "it"
    Didn't mean to like your comment. I knew someone was going to say this. The poster wasn't comparing the LGBT community to murderers; the poster was simply making a point about nurses. Sometimes we...

  18. RN never feels guilty when calling out
    If I'm sick, I call out. But let's be clear, I don't call out because I have a headache or bad heartburn. I have to really be sick. I don't feel guilty or even think about my unit when I'm at work....

  19. That nagging feeling...
    I always say, "As nurses, we have spidey senses." It's a gut feeling that we all gain with that mix of instinct, experience and intangible signs as you've described.

  20. Taking care of DNR patients. The point?
    Once again, where did the OP say that he doesn't provide appropriate care for DNR patients? He presented his view on something, not an action.

  21. Taking care of DNR patients. The point?
    This is what I have a hard time understanding. What error? The OP never came here and said, "I treat DNR patients differently than patients who I can actually save." The OP expressed his thoughts...

  22. Taking care of DNR patients. The point?
    Honestly, don't let the "follow the leader" posters get to you. That seems to be the culture here. It's all opinions anyway and I did value yours.

  23. Taking care of DNR patients. The point?
    That is YOUR opinion. Last time I checked, compassion wasn't a prerequisite to being a nurse. Sometimes people become nurses because it's a way to pay their bills. Whatever the reason, the only thing...

  24. Taking care of DNR patients. The point?
    The OP is a new nurse. Nursing school doesn't teach us compassion, it is developed. Sometimes it takes that one patient to change a nurse's perception. The OP's experience will guide her to what's...
