    Can you imagine how much space that would take up? OP must be in outpatient, because inpatient, we'd be filling the patient rooms with chairs to accommodate all that. But man I'd love to have my own...

  5. Sure to Get Flamed for This
    Thank you. That post burned me up because out of this entire thread, my posts were call-out worthy when the poster clearly misunderstood all I'd said. Plus I've been on nights, which apparently...

  6. Should I quit my job, sell my house and sail to Hawaii?
    People who get a BSN are people who clearly have too much time and money on their hands. And all you people like to look down your noses at the rest of the world thinking you're better. You're no...

  8. I've been a nurse since.....(fill in the blank)
    Ohhhhhhh don't get me started on Webster. Ever since I learned that "figuratively" is a new and acceptable definition for "literally", I started planning my creative plot to destroy Webster for all...

  9. Robin Williams RIP: Coping Mechanism?
    It would need to be something that goes viral like the ice bucket challenge did, I think. But instead of simply doing the challenge, it would also need to require a donation - any donation - to a...

    I always feel like those who respond with dignity, respect and wisdom must surely be older than I am because half the people my age still act like teenagers.

  14. ER Practicum - What do I need to know?
    Brush up on CPR. They'll be more than happy to toss you in the compressions line. If it's a person who was brought in by EMS, chances are you won't bring them back. That's to be expected. Make sure...

    Either you mean "everybody" as an exaggeration, or I'm the only idiot to come by my degree honestly. OP, what do you mean by it's not working for you anymore? I hope you mean the group work, and...

    P.S. I don't believe nursing experience is necessary to have relevant input on a topic about bullying. You do realize bullying happens outside hospitals, right? I have not in any way overstated my...

  19. Should I quit my job, sell my house and sail to Hawaii?
    Go to Hawaii anyway. Show up at a hospital in scrubs and tell them it's your first day. Report back to us to let us know what happens.

  20. I love night shift! (Advice for continued success, please?)
