  2. Imagine my Dismay.....
    What's with the lack of support towards nurses who are in a different unit than you? Whether that be SNF or Med Surg or other, until you have walked a mile in their shoes stop assuming their job is...

  3. Don't People Have Bills To Pay?
    agreed While I don't have decades of experience, I'm far from being a new nurse. I don't think NCLEX factors much into what makes a nurse a nurse, so I'll leave the question for who had a...

  4. Don't People Have Bills To Pay?
    Please. (;) ) You are reading more into my post than what was there. I did not say that older nurses forgot what it was like to be new, nor did I say older nurses had it easy. I am saying that...

  5. Don't People Have Bills To Pay?
    I agree with most of your post, however I'm wondering why this aspect of nursing is considered 'ok'? What other job routinely makes new people cry and hate waking up each day as a new person in the...

  7. SQ technique help
    I have been surprised by the amount of threads on AN which nurses think no aspiration is necessary for sub-q or any injection, and saddened that this misinformation is spreading. CDC has not made...

  8. Using BOTH kaplan and Hurst to pass RN NCLEX
    While I did not use either of these. I did use a two pronged approach like you and found it very helpful. One method will help fill the gaps of the other. Good luck!

    Why do you think generic salary posts here are rude and unprofessional? This site is fairly anonymous, and you can choose which threads to post on. Here, it is generally an educational question so...

  12. How Long Does This Order Last?
    I've had doctors write PRN refills, often it is for things like creams, and refills are based on how often insurance will fill it.

  15. Patients with many needs taking up too much time
    Its not fair to make other scheduled patients wait while you fill out non-urgent paperwork. I'd tell the patient that I have other patients that are waiting for me, and, at best, I'd see if I can...

  16. Question about IM vs IV injection, when to aspirate, what to look for
    Yes, I do, and that's what the patients deserve. When administering a medication the nurse should study/be familiar with manufacturer's guidelines/medical consensus and follow them. For example,...
