  1. Patients who ask if you got a flu shot
    I have several legitimate reasons for not getting a flu shot, but it's not about me. I want to focus on the patient and not about my own reasons. Unfortunately many of my patients are a little nosey...

  2. Patients who ask if you got a flu shot

  6. Advice for dealing with addicts?
    I don't know if it's a regional thing, but south of Boston the kids call them "Johnny's" or "Johnny Rottens" Neurontin is one of the most abused non-controlled substances around here. One night...

  9. Advice for dealing with addicts?
    Girl, I could have written the same post. When I worked detox on the night shift, I was lucky enough to at least have another nurse to back me up. I never tolerated shouting or demands. My...

    This. Sometimes you just "know" ...do you remember any of the nurses on those floors? Was there an especially welcoming unit? Go with that one. And congrats on being brand new with so many choices!!

  12. I sent thank you note after interview. Should I send another one after job offer?
    It's definitely proper to send one after the interview, just like you did (might have helped you stand out and get the job! congrats!). It isn't necessary, in terms of etiquette, to send one after...

  13. I sent thank you note after interview. Should I send another one after job offer?
    I think your first thank you note was enough. Thank them again in person when you start training :) If you are REALLY itching to send another thank-you, I highly doubt they will rescind your offer...
