  1. Giving a placebo in PACU?
    What a mess.. I would refuse to comply with this order. When the patient finds out they might sue. I wouldn't want to be named in that lawsuit. Protect yourself.

  2. What's the furthest you had to travel for a clinical?

  5. bargain shopping for books!
    My only advice is to make sure if you rent a text that you won't need it for another. I know several students who rented a text, needed the book again later in the program, and paid more than if they...

  6. Graduating HS with all of my nursing prerequisites done
    What a great start to your career! My advice is call the school and meet with the admissions staff/ nursing dept staff. They can tell you what their requirements are. Good luck!

  10. Got a letter today, asking me to join hospital union - join or not join?
    Where I live they have pretty much eliminated unions so there aren't any options for me. IF I had the option I would join one in a hot second.

  11. AT&T Will Keep Your Grandma Out of the Nursing Home
    I can see how people might find this to be helpful, however just like mentioned above someone can hack into this.. Look at how video baby moniters have been hacked. No thanks. Not worth the risks.

  12. work from home opportunities for lpn
    Keep in mind that even if you work from home there will need to be someone to take care of your child while you work. You cannot care for your child at the same time you are working.

  19. I. Just. Can't....
    People just don't understand what resuscitation really involves. It's awful that we put our loved ones through this when there is no reason. Then to threaten to sue. What a bunch of ignorant fools.
