  4. I am heartbroken I got fired for the first time as a nurse
    I'm really not sure what qualifications the receptionist would have lab-wise with a medic background. Red flag right there to me. Be glad you didn't have to make the decision to leave!

  8. what to do if you're worried about a negative reference
    You still don't get it. When you list former employers, those aren't REFERENCES in the true interpretation of the definition. A REFERENCE is someone YOU choose to supply as being able to give...

  10. what to do if you're worried about a negative reference

  14. Violation of labor laws- looking up pts prior to clocking in
    Why are you pushing this? Your manager has told you to stop doing it. Clearly your facility has an issue with your practice and doesn't want you doing it. You're "on their radar" so to speak. I'd...

  15. Violation of labor laws- looking up pts prior to clocking in
    You've been doing this off the clock? Big no-no for a million reasons, all labor law related. I'm really surprised that your hospital has allowed it to go on for so long actually

  20. Do the CNAs or RNs do personal care
    I have to say that as a nurse I've done the "let me grab a cna!" Because nurses aren't given gait belts and Cna's are. I'd rather help clean up a code brown because someone had to wait for assistance...
