  1. Night Shift Dulls your brain
    I don't know, at least for me I know I can think better and sharper at night because it's slower paced (usually) and there are less people around. My brain does not do well in chaotic environments,...

  3. Compassion fatigue...how do you deal?
    I hate to say it but, during my shifts I remind myself at the end of the day, it's just a job. I do the very best I can, I am polite and respectful. But I refuse to let these people railroad me and...

  4. why do nurses gossip and belittle eachother?
    To answer the original question: I think it's because nursing is a high stress job with often a lot at stake and too little help. We grow frustrated, so we take it out on the nearest targets -- each...

  5. What age of patient's are the most difficult for you?
    Do we work in the same place? Good lord. On that note, if I even have the audacity to walk in 30 sec "late", off with my head! I get to the point where I just tell myself it's a job, and it will...

  6. What age of patient's are the most difficult for you?
    Patients in their 30's and 40s. Blech. They seem to be the least receptive and most entitled/whiny. Give me a pleasantly confused 80 year old any day.

  7. Why did you become a nurse?
    I'm young and needed to support myself. Also, my ADN was extremely cheap. If anyone has a problem with nurses going into it for the money, they are welcome to come and pay my bills for me. ;) ...

  9. Voluntary Euthanasia
    Would I euthanize someone? Damn right I would if that's what they wanted, and I hope someone would do the same for me. It's a damn shame it's not legal.

  11. whats the main cause of stress that RN goes through at work?
    Where to begin... 1. ratios. On my floor it's 5:1, and IMO too high. A more reasonable load if you expect me to get everything done in a safe and timely manner would be 3:1 or 4:1 MAX. Also, add...

  12. NIGHT SHIFT
    I've been on nights for almost one year now, and to be honest, I have never fully gotten used to it. The first month I lost like 5lbs because I didn't know how to eat at night, and when I would come...

    I've been a nurse for almost a year, and I think burnout has hit me hard. I'm also finding certain aspects of the job degrading. I don't mean wiping up poop or vomit or blood, or turning a little old...

  15. No more 12 hour shifts?
    Well hopefully I will be out of bedside nursing before this comes to fruition. I kind of hate 12 hour shifts because after the 8 hr mark I do NOT give hoot anymore. I work nights. My body is taxed by...

  17. career advice needed for a introvert pls
    I'm an introvert as well. As a nurse it IS exhausting to have to be surrounded by people -- mainly family members who get up in your face with 1,000 questions at a time. I actually don't mind one to...

  19. if you hate nursing, what would you rather do instead?
    Probably a psychologist. My favorite part of my job is the little down time I have to just sit and talk with someone and try to make them feel better or just hear them out without judgment. I'm a new...
