  1. To experienced nurses...
    I think if the only aspect of my life I'm thinking about is my career, then I think I would wish I'd gone the med school path instead. The doctors I know work shorter, fewer days than I do, for a lot...

  2. BSN to Med School
    I wanted to do this, but then I realized it would mean taking over 8 classes that I didn't take in undergrad! If you have the option to take all your prereqs in addition to what you need for your...

  7. New RN, not  interested in bedside nursing
    The office I work for has absolutely no problem hiring new grads. I think it's probably because we're a lot cheaper than Nurse of the Year w/ 25 years experience, and this job doesn't really many of...

    I'm a new RN in a similar job too, for a few months now. I would say... don't be afraid of the doctors! They are probably really nice most of the time and this is just their job, they are humans too....

  11. Why do nurses treat each other do way they do?
    I think also there are a lot of big egos in healthcare. Not just physicians but a lot of nurses. We should be proud of our profession, but I think some people feel like if they know how to help...

  15. What's your reason for putting up with it?
    I can't help but see the similarities between nurses and teachers... both are traditionally female roles; both have come a long way in the last 100 years; and both are stretched to the limit and...
