  3. Which was more stressful: nursing school or actually working as a RN?
    Hands down, work was more stressful for me than school. That first day off orientation came only three days into my charge nurse role in LTC and I was far from confident in those early times even...

  5. Liking members at AN
    I love the members who post with a good sense of humor. Capturing the absurd is absolutely one of my own favorite things to do, and I adore the folks who do it well. :)

  6. Getting back pain treatment at the hospital you work at.
    I'd go somewhere else for medical care in this case, if I were you. Someone you work with is bound to see you and wonder what's up. That can lead to gossip and rumors get started. No, your employer...

  7. Nursing Dose
    Absolutely not. I've been known to give the highest range dose for a patient in severe pain, but more often I've just called the doc and gotten better pain management. I would NEVER take it upon...

  9. What have you learned about Death?
    It is a privilege to work with the dying, to be there for them in their final season of life. There is so much to be learned, not only in the care of the body but the spirit. I have found the moment...

  10. Bad experience as CNA :(
    I worked as a CNA in a hospital while I was in nursing school and LOVED it. Nursing home, not so much. I'd started out in an LTC and quit within weeks.....it was just brutal. But in the hospital I...

  11. Late for work excuses
    Speaking of cats, I was late to work one time because one ran under the wheels of my car on the way to work. I tried to rescue it and nearly got hit myself. I did succeed in moving the poor kitty to...

  12. Liking members at AN
    There are so many members I like that I couldn't possibly list them all. I've only blocked a couple in all my years here, and then un-blocked them when I'd cooled off. After all, one can't learn...

  13. its almost impossible
    I would appeal this. It doesn't sound like you can return to nursing, you may have to find something you can do sitting down. But I do think you have a case and should take this higher up the food...

  14. if you suck at nursing interviews, clap your hands!
    By far the worst one for me was "what did you do when you had a conflict with a co-worker and how did you resolve it?" HATED that question.:dead:

  17. How long should my resume be?
    Trust me, as a hiring manager I didn't have time to give resumes more than a cursory glance, but I did read the cover letter. That told me pretty much what I wanted to know about the candidate, and...

  18. Moving forward after revocation of nursing license
    I don't mean to be a wet blanket here, but having a license revocation on your record will make it very difficult, if not impossible, to receive any other type of professional license. And you can't...

  19. Required to disclose hx of depression
    It's possible. Employers tend not to be very understanding of mental health issues. If you've been stable for seven years and are not on meds, there really is no need to disclose your medical...
