  1. "Your ER sucks!" and other pleasantries...how you handle them?
    Oooh, hold on now. I come from somewhere that is pretty darn left-leaning. Unions are everywhere. If you work for a hospital, it is MANDATORY to be part of the union and pay their dues. Nurse to...

  2. What Keeps Nurses Up at Night?
    Ok, I'll bite. What keeps me up at night is feeling like what I do is completely useless. I entered nursing to make a difference, and there are so many patients, or so many shifts, that make you feel...

  4. More Examples of posting on Facebook and getting fired
    Well........from what I read, it doesn't seem she was talking about a whole race of people getting mowed down, but those who were rioting and being violent in the streets. Or at least that's what I...

  5. Ever have a patient complain about you?
    It's been said, but as a nurse, if people never complain about you, I think you're not doing it right. People will always complain if they don't get what they want. And let's face it, if everyone...

    Is it weird that this makes me jealous? Lol... I've been thinking lately that I should start applying for ED positions, I often work so darn hard as it is, I can't help but feel I might as well have...

  7. Should I quit my job, sell my house and sail to Hawaii?
    Wooh "You should probably stick to stripping and quit nursing. After all, shifts go much smoother when only men are working. Less drama and complaining. Women should stay where they belong,...

  8. Being Asked to Come in and Work as CNA...
    Eh, if paid the wages for your degree of education, it's more a question of 'do I want to work overtime' rather than 'would you work as a CNA?'. Everything they do in a shift, I do as well. If you...

  9. Should I quit my job, sell my house and sail to Hawaii?
    OMG you guys, nurses are supposed to be compassionate, never ever judgmental, paragons of virtue who want nothing more than to help others! How dare you make fun of people trying to get advice...

  10. How do you handle inappropriate touching from patients?
    Just to be clear, i liked your post for the fact that you are defending being uncomfortable with this behavior, and rightfully so. How is this any different than someone on the bus trying to do...

  11. Sure to Get Flamed for This

  14. Nurses who believe in herbal nonsense, alternative medicine, anti vaccine etc
    I definitely think there is a place for 'herbal nonsense', aka natural medicine. While I may not tell people to stop taking their meds and switch to herbal, I see nothing wrong with telling them to...

  15. What's the craziest thing a patient or family member has said to you?
    I once had a pt who was pregnant with twins. She went into labor at 25 weeks, and had to be rushed to emergency c-section. Unfortunately, despite my colleagues' hard work, one baby died in the OR and...

    Hey, here's a crazy thought. Did you ASK this nurse why she let her friend chart on her computer?

  17. No!  It is NOT OK.
    I think to add to this article Episteme, one is needed on the 'I'm sorry' epidemic. Everyone apologizes for EVERYTHING. And when you do, it makes you look insincere, especially if the person...

    I'm IEN, worked 4-5 years in Canada before taking NCLEX. I took questions I found for free online as well as Saunders. I passed first time, but I've always been a good test taker. And honestly, my...

  19. First time fired by a patient
    Wow, I'd get fired from pretty much all my patients, I rarely bring a medicine cup. Patients usually just want me to put pills in their hand anyways...You just can't win I guess!

    Oh my God, so I just got an image of an older nurse (because of course I don't know what Grntea looks like) twerking and almost snorted out my nose. I didn't know you could do that, but now I do....

  22. A little ticked
    I've frequently asked techs to take vitals when they are due, not before, especially not an hour or more. What if I have meds ordered at MN that require VS? I mean, if I'm going to have to take all...

  23. The most ridiculous birth plans you've had the pleasure of reading
    Eh, I beg to differ. My daughter got a paci first or second DOL, and I BF her until she was 11 months old. I stopped because she lost interest, had too much to do and couldn't stop long enough to...
