  2. Knitting during class: ok or not?
    I'm an avid knitter too, love making socks and shawls. One thing I loved about my online RN to BSN program was the ability to sit and knit while listening to the lectures. It helped me...

  3. When A Nurse Needs A Doctor.....
    It really depends. Would I get a routine colonoscopy from one of the general surgeons I see daily? No. Not because they aren't good, but I don't want my coworkers seeing that part of my anatomy. ...

  4. Does anybody else feel guilty about calling off?
    Brilliant post, Ceccia. It's no one's business how anyone else chooses to use their sick days. I've taken mental health days and sick days. Guess what? The hospital is still standing, the unit...

  5. Newbies Who Want to Pay ZERO Dues Schedule-Wise
    We've got one of those. It drives me crazy! Her schedule is actually very reasonable, but she's still not happy. I call her on it when she complains. If you want a Monday through Friday gig,...

    I'm definitely feeling frustrated. My hospital is going all out with pink and I'm struggling not to be offended. I realize this is my issue and breast cancer awareness is a good thing, but it still...

  9. I Lost All Respect For A Colleague Today
    If I caught someone in a lie, any lie, I would trust them less in the future. Maybe I'm just odd, but I tend to think past behavior is indicative of future behavior until proven otherwise.

  10. I Lost All Respect For A Colleague Today
    I disagree. If a person can lie about something as important as their wedding vows (open marriages aside), what else will they lie about? A liar can't be trusted, whatever the lie is.

  11. Me......Me....Me : A Sense of Entitlement
    What always amazes me is that the actual Really Sick People and their families tend to be the nicest, easiest to work with, while the not so sick can be PITAs.

  12. I Lost All Respect For A Colleague Today
    I've been in a similar position to the OP. My boss was cheating on his wife with a coworker (also married) in another department. I lost all respect for both of them. If a person can so blatantly...

  13. The Ovarian Cancer Blues
    As an ovarian cancer survivor, I have felt some resentment towards the focus on breast cancer. My cynical thought is that breasts are sexy, internal organs are not. Any type of awareness and...

  14. What's your Myers-Briggs personality type?
    I'm split between INFP/INTP. I'm another one of those people who can fake extroversion well but am mentally drained at the end of my shift. I work night shift on a med/Surg floor. I can definitely...

    Maybe I'm mean, but if you're well enough to have sex, you're well enough to go home.

  16. So Frustrated I Could Cry..
    Unanayeli, I wasn't trying to judge you, rather an employer that would even think that requiring such a sacrifice of his or her employees is morally acceptable. You had to make a difficult decision,...

  17. So Frustrated I Could Cry..
    You need to grow up if you think a job is more important than your family. I can only guess that you are young and have yet to truly contemplate your own mortality or that of those you hold dear. ...

  18. So Frustrated I Could Cry..
    How is that even possible? Any decent employer would ensure that, short of an unforeseen disaster, staff can have that time off. It also speaks volumes about the character of the nurse's coworkers....

  21. Violation of labor laws- looking up pts prior to clocking in
    I don't come in early and I almost always leave on time. I'm proactive and get things done as quickly and efficiently as possible and don't scramble to get things finished.

  22. Violation of labor laws- looking up pts prior to clocking in
    I'm shocked anyone wants to donate that kind of time to their employer. Even if I'm only looking up my patients, I'm getting paid for it.
