  3. Over 60, seasoned nurse, fired for not being a "Robot RN."

  4. Over 60, seasoned nurse, fired for not being a "Robot RN."

  6. Fired for expressing concerns about patient safety and care!
    samadams8, I can't see how I made any assumptions in what I said that you replied to. I was giving my view of what has happened to some people, including myself, as new nurses. Going back, the OP...

  11. What can nurses do to be more happy in their career?
    I'm not working currently...but I think sitting and talking to my loved one relaxed me some, when I did work. Sitting outside where I could breathe fresh air and look at nature was good too.

  17. Calling in sick, staffing issues
    Working in Nursing seems to be, IMO, very conducive for call ins. There is high stress everyday in most nursing jobs. I think some nurses think it is better to call in than quit. And I guess they are...

  18. Should a nurse ask to be assigned to specific patients?
