  2. 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...

  3. What's the craziest thing a patient or family member has said to you?

  5. 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...

  6. Many foreign nurses attempting NCLEX??
    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...

    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!

  8. My stack of books was taller in RN school than in NP school
    Oops, a word got lost in there, I meant to say that I almost snorted chips out my nose. And yes Grntea, I know that old people have sex too, and don't doubt abilities or quality. What I was...

  9. My stack of books was taller in RN school than in NP school
    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....

  10. 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...

  11. 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...

  13. Interventions without MD orders
    Um...do I still get extra points if i admit I haven't watched the Spider-Man movies? Of all the Marvell movies, I'm more of a Thor fan myself. Now THAT'S a superhero!

  14. Interventions without MD orders

  16. I was fired today
    This is something I've come to think of more lately, especially given the economy and work conditions for nurses. I think that for all of us who can, it is really a good idea to not put all our eggs...

    Of course I was being sarcastic. I do not think I am any less of a nurse than a BSN nurse, I have the experience to back it up, just haven't had enough drive to register in school yet. However it...

  24. How to treat?
    I've heard of people relapsing due to methadone, if they were not taking it anymore/at all at the time. Guess it might be a case by case on that one.
