  2. Do I have to give my job information about my court hearing?

  3. Does your facility do this?
    What they are suggesting is illegal. You are to be paid for all the time you work. If they don't you call the Dept of Labor and report them. It is taken seriously by them. Don't let them get away...

  8. How important is it for a Charge Nurse to be able to run a code?
    I'd put it at a 10/10. It sounds like in your case the person should have failed. If they put people through that struggle that defeats the whole purpose.

  13. Patient complaint filed
    I'm really sorry. What did they actually fire you for? Did you have any disciplinary action against you in the past? Did they put your dismissal in writing and give cause for the firing?

  20. How do you politely walk away or say no?
    It's true that it is all about boundaries. It can be hard to set them early in your career but it is imperative that you learn to do it. It's not mean to tell them you have other patients to care...

  25. Why doesn't the nursing profession support LPNs?
