  4. Is it possible to be successful in nursing with poor social skills?
    Also, gummi, don't feel too bad about not being in that close social circle at work. Being the quiet observer that I am, I overhear things. People who act like friends to each others faces, back stab...

  5. Is it possible to be successful in nursing with poor social skills?
    I think they could be successful as a nurse, but maybe not so much with their coworkers. Why? Because nursing is very cliquey. Men and women alike. If you are perceived as different, the majority...

  6. Is it possible to be successful in nursing with poor social skills?
    I wouldn't say I have the best social skills. I'm an introvert who is reserved, and prefers to interact with very small groups at a time in a quiet, toned down manner; someone who would rather stand...

  7. How do you spend your first day off?
    Sleeping. I work nights. I usually sleep all of the morning when I get off, wake up mid-afternoon, and then go back to sleep in the evening and sleep through the night. By the time I wake up the next...

  8. What is it with nurses showing up late!
    Being tardy is my #1 pet peeve. It's rude and disrespectful. It says, "my time is more important than yours, and I don't give a crap what you might have going on in life." 45 minutes late?! With...

  9. To tell or not to tell!
    Unless one of your co-workers is blatantly bringing harm to a patient, mind your own business. When people do wrong it usually catches up with them eventually, your intervention not required. You're...

  10. How long before being charge nurse?
    On my unit I was put in charge around six months after I was off orientation. One very brief on the fly night of "training" the night before and then thrown into it the next next night. They...

  11. Embracing Night Shift
    I have worked nights for a year and a half now, and while I do believe that they are starting to take their toll and I feel exhausted a lot even on my days off, there are pros. We have 24 hour/day...

  12. Tolerance and acceptace of gay nurses and patients
    I don't have any gay co-workers (that I know of), but I've had several gay patients and for some reason a few nurses who have given me report on these patients feel the need to mention that they are...

  13. Text messages from nurse manager
    Not rude at all. I get group texts occasionally from the manager and calls from staffing as well, asking people to come in because someone called off and they are short. Not my problem. I worked my...

  14. I HATE bedside nursing
    It's not just you honey, bedside does suck. I told myself I would stay 3-5 years; long enough to get enough experience to never have to go back, and work on my BSN at the same time. As soon as I have...

  15. Why do you think nurses leave the profession?
    Too many tasks, and not enough staff in which to cut down on the nurse/patient ratios. When I have 3 or 4 patients, I feel that I can mostly provide good to excellent care and be attentive. Give me...

  16. Night Shift Dulls your brain
    I don't know, at least for me I know I can think better and sharper at night because it's slower paced (usually) and there are less people around. My brain does not do well in chaotic environments,...

  18. Compassion fatigue...how do you deal?
    I hate to say it but, during my shifts I remind myself at the end of the day, it's just a job. I do the very best I can, I am polite and respectful. But I refuse to let these people railroad me and...

  19. why do nurses gossip and belittle eachother?
    To answer the original question: I think it's because nursing is a high stress job with often a lot at stake and too little help. We grow frustrated, so we take it out on the nearest targets -- each...

  20. What age of patient's are the most difficult for you?
    Do we work in the same place? Good lord. On that note, if I even have the audacity to walk in 30 sec "late", off with my head! I get to the point where I just tell myself it's a job, and it will...

  21. What age of patient's are the most difficult for you?
    Patients in their 30's and 40s. Blech. They seem to be the least receptive and most entitled/whiny. Give me a pleasantly confused 80 year old any day.

  22. Why did you become a nurse?
    I'm young and needed to support myself. Also, my ADN was extremely cheap. If anyone has a problem with nurses going into it for the money, they are welcome to come and pay my bills for me. ;) ...

    Would I euthanize someone? Damn right I would if that's what they wanted, and I hope someone would do the same for me. It's a damn shame it's not legal.
