  3. Nurses and praying for patients
    Part of their initial assessment, yes, not necessarily part of their daily assessments or their care at all. Many patients' spiritual needs may be to be left alone. If I'm admitted to the hospital,...

  5. Medication Adm in FL
    Would you administer each pill separately if the patient could swallow pills? I don't know about others, but I take all my pills at once. I don't necessarily crush and give everything separately in...

  6. Teen to remain in state custody, in Boston Children's Hospital
    The worker and supervisor involved in that case should be charged with a crime, in my opinion. They were charged with protecting that child and they failed miserably. MA DCF is a disaster. Not...

  7. Nursing school student loans.
    What level of nursing are you? RN, BSN. I assume this is what you are asking. How much in student loan debt did you graduate with? Around $90k. Are you still paying it off? Yes. If not,...

  8. No degree
    Do you think that you shouldn't have to pay for classes that you fail? Come again? Your tuition is the cost of your schooling, there is no guarantee that it will end with a degree. If you do 7...

  9. Nurses and praying for patients
    English IS my first language and I agree with you. The whole thing bothered me but the use of the word "yet" does imply that the expectation is that all these non-believer patients will be persuaded...

  10. Helping non-patients
    Same city and, as I recall, our hospital code team would respond anywhere on hospital property- including in the parking garage.

  12. Nurses and praying for patients
    Do you think there are no atheists, Muslims, Jews or people who otherwise don't want to hear about their nurses' love of Jesus when they're in the hospital in Tennessee? I agree with mclennan,...

  14. PCA vs CNA
    Sometimes yes, sometimes no. Every hospital that I worked at/did clinicals at called their nurses' aides something different. At one hospital, they were called PCTs (Patient Care Technicians), at...

  15. Nursing with a minor in business administration
    I've never known a BSN program to offer you enough electives to have a minor. At my university, you needed 6 classes for a minor. We got 3 electives over the course of 4 years. All the nurses I...

  17. Still confused about feeding tubes
    No, a PEG tube is a specific kind of G-tube. A G-tube is a tube that is in the stomach. A PEG tube is a G-tube that was placed by percutaneous endoscopy. In my experience, this is usually placed...

  18. Certificates
    CPR/BLS won't enhance your resume as it is a requirement for employment as an RN in all states. Not having it will hinder your job opportunities though. If you don't have it, definitely get it.

  20. One thing I learned today is that honesty will get you nowhere in Nursing School.
    No, it isn't. And your scenario doesn't guarantee that I'm in a position to prevent anything safely. Saying "No I haven't seen this woman" doesn't guarantee that the gunmen will move on. Maybe...

  21. The teacher had the question wrong...Should I be penalized?
    This is the second time you've made a post accusing the teacher of having the wrong answer or, in this case, the wrong question. The first time, every nurse who read the question agreed that the...

  22. One thing I learned today is that honesty will get you nowhere in Nursing School.
    I wouldn't answer the door in the first place. Either time. Sleeping through an alarm wouldn't rise to the level of "valid" excuse. Valid excuses would be things like my grandfather died and his...
