  1. Filipino nurses emigrating to US
    I agree with most of what you say, but find it insulting that you think you are "more hireable" or "skilled" or "competitive" than I am. That is a huge assumption on your part and largely unfair.....

  2. Filipino nurses emigrating to US
    I don't see any disrespect. People are debating, and yes, getting "lively", I fail to see out and out disrespect. I also agree, while there are new grads/nurses who want to work but cannot find work,...

  3. Nursing Student : Back Injury
    Talk to your doctor. No one here can say for sure if it's right for you or not. If you are coming out of the gate with serious back issues, you will likely have real problems in clinicals in school....

  4. What changes would you like to see from administration?
    I am sorry you are turned off to message boards based on your experiences here. I do believe a lot of people came forward with earnest, well-thought replies to your original questions. I can't speak...

  5. What changes would you like to see from administration?
    I mean no hostility. I was trying to explain why you are being received as you are. I mean no insult nor would ever presume to say you are not smart enough for administration. In fact, I wish you...

  6. What changes would you like to see from administration?
    These darn schools need to STOP just sending people to allnurses.com or other such forums for answers and to do their homework for them. The schools should teach their students online forum etiquette...

  7. New Grad - Ain't he special!
    It's not a matter of "hating on new grads". THIS guy is a problem. His attitude and behavior suck and he does not need to stay. He won't be any good to his patients/residents and certainly will be a...

  8. New Grad - Ain't he special!
    IF you have any say in getting rid of him do it yesterday. It won't get better; that's my experience. He is a liability and WILL throw you and others "under the bus" any time and any place he can get...

  9. What are my options?
    AH but that is not how a public forum works. You put it out there, you get what you get and do not get to choose who replies or how. I would not go to Excelsior either. EXPEN$IVE. There are less...

    I have no compassion for someone playing the system like a fine fiddle. I hope she is NEVER a nurse.

  11. Attention L&D and Postpartum RNs! I need your help with a quality improvement project!
    I would help you out, but I feel my input won't be useful. I work in a LDRP unit, not separated by L/D and PP. We are small unit with only about 70 del/month and no Level III NICU. Just level II...

  12. Patients family in the medical field
    Gosh I am the opposite. When a patient myself, or have a loved one who is I tend to keep mum about being a nurse. I want the medical personnel caring for me or my loved one not to worry what I do or...

  13. From ABC News:  Nursing Student Who Failed Class Twice Sues Her University
    She will have problems in her career. And so will her coworkers, supervisors and patients. She may sue her way into nursing, but won't survive long once she is actually a nurse. My only hope is when...

    I am so sorry for your loss. And it is a big loss. I lost my first patient as a student and can still see his face, 20 years later. HUGS to you.

  15. Schools push APRN immediately-$$
    When you are a nurse a while, a long while, like 10 or more years, get back to me. Education is HUGELY important but will NEVER EVER replace or make up for experience. I will take the BSN/ADN/LPN...

  16. Day shift vs. night shift
    Wow almost like a bait-and-switch. I am sorry about that. But like others stated, you may LIKE night shift. In a lot of hospitals and LTC, the people working nights are closer and tighter-knit. They...

  17. Schools push APRN immediately-$$
    I think an NP or PA with prior experience has instincts and intuition that direct-entry folks lack. Nothing makes up for lack of experience. That is partly why I won't go to an NP/PA who has no...

    How do I know their background? That sure isn't all that hard. I know who they are and what their background is. I chose my health care provider based on experience and background. I am lucky in...

  20. Day shift vs. night shift
    I have read articles citing that people working long term NOC die sooner. I can see why. It's not natural for most of us to be up all night and try to sleep all day and many times when I was on NOC,...

  21. Does death have a smell?
    I know cancer has a distinctive odor oftentimes, that I detect. And there must be something to it, because dogs can be trained to "sniff out cancer". I don't see much dying where I am cause I am...

    Depends on where you are. Where I work, the dayshift is a team, we support each other and have each other's backs and work hard. our night shift, is more about being individual, doing their own...

    THANK YOU. Why should anyone take a "hit"? It is just this thinking that causes problems when errors occur. We mean to LEARN From them, not be punitive. Or else, dishonesty is likely. I hate this...
