  1. What do nurses do on a day surgery unit?
    When I worked day surgery I did a lot of IV starts, go over consents in preop, and discharge instructions, medicate for pain/nausea in post op.

  2. Nursing blues.. :/
    I too have had this same experience, I am in medsurg, and many days I feel as though I will not survive until I become "mean". I feel like when you are nice you are taken advantage of. I hope you...

  3. Please help a student nurse
    Yes, play nice with others. One of the most shocking things that I have learned is that nurses do not support each other like they should, and until we do, we will not be able to advance like we want...

  6. Mandatory Flu Vaccines- How do you feel?
    The law states that the employer has the right to offer the mask option, and mine does not. The point I am trying to get across is just because you get the flu shot it does not mean the patients are...

  7. Mandatory Flu Vaccines- How do you feel?
    It is not the matter of getting the flu shot. It is the false belief that it is 100% effective.

  9. State-Mandated Nurse Staffing Levels Alleviate Workloads, Leading to Lower Patient Mo
    I am in Texas, and we have a lot of new grads from California here because the unemployment rate is so high there. Right now, we are way overstaffed too. I don't know where this nursing shortage is...

  10. Mandatory Flu Vaccines- How do you feel?
    And I think they are using the same strains this year that they have the past three, and they were the wrong strains the previous two years

  11. Mandatory Flu Vaccines- How do you feel?
    That is both sad and scary. I heard something similar from a pharmacist also. And that same pharmacist shared the same frustration with me about the 100% immunity myth.

  14. Mandatory Flu Vaccines- How do you feel?
    What people seem to forget is that even though you get a flu vaccine, it IS NOT 100% that you will not get, or pass on the flu. They have to predict and pick the CORRECT strains! That is so...

  15. What color do you wear?
    At the hospital I am at, it depends on the position. We wear navy blue (RN), LVNs royal blue, telemetry red, and on and on. I think this is much easier on everyone so they can easily recognize who...

    I think this is very normal! It also depends on how busy the unit is, how it is laid out, and how good your resources are. There are nights when we are all running way behind on meds and everything...

  17. What is your nurse-patient ratio?
    I work on a medical/surgical floor, and the hospital has no step down/progressive unit (that is us too). We have 38 beds, and 5-6 patients per RN on days and nights (because it is just as busy on...

  18. "You look tired"
    It annoys me when they add in the " I didn't think you guys were so busy here, especially on nights." I have actually had a patient say "they run you here like scalded dogs" :laugh:

    This was hard for me to learn when I first started working as a nurse. I was so used to doing everything around the house, (and so was my dear husband :o). I finally just had to tell him that I...

  20. Day shift or night shift - Which do you prefer?  Why?
    I work 6:45 pm to 7:15 am. I really like the night shift because 1. it allows me to see my baby more (If I was working days, he would be asleep when I went to work, and by the time I got home he...
