  2. Moving to Maine
    I think coming from Wisconsin you'll do fine for winter! The coast is a little milder than inland. I love the 4 seasons. The nice part is summer - it's cooler right here on the coast, and breezy. I...

  3. Moving to Maine
    That's where I live! It's a beautiful town. I assume you have been here to interview for the job? Rockland is far enough in to Maine that you'll really hear the accent and see the culture. It is...

  5. Scrubs - what do you wear?
    I like the solid color with contrasting trim from Urbane scrubs, they also have a nice cut to them, very slightly fitted and not too long.

  6. Things you'd LOVE to tell coworkers...and get away with it!
    Just because you're in the parking lot at 0700 does not mean you're "on time". Why do you insist on first lunch and then always leave late for it, resulting in e everyone's lunch starting late? ...

  8. Are you going to work tommorow in the big storm?
    I don't call out for weather. I plan ahead. The same ones call out, and the same ones show up. There is always people who come from farther away then the ones who call out. And if it happens to be my...

  9. Scrubs: MOBB, Dickies, other favourites??
    Urbane scrubs - I like the cut and length of the tops. I believe they're made by Landau.

  10. When did you know that Nursing was the right path for you?
    To be honest with you I knew when I was 5 yrs old. It was always what I wanted to do. In the '60's there was a show called "Dr.'s At Work", (I think that was the name), and I was fascinated with...

  11. Safety of Jail Rn with no deputys or guards?
    Wow! I can't believe they have you do these things w/o a C.O. present. I have 5 yrs working in county jails, this would be unheard of! Unsafe for you and a security risk for the facility. I'm curious...

  16. Nurses working without health insurance
    To Sarafina - if you do happen to pay that $10,000 deductible this year then the new year will roll in and you'll have to start over! Useless health insurance - I can't believe it's come to this!

  17. Nurses working without health insurance
    It's becoming useless even when you have it - the new "high deductible" policies ensure you have to pay more and more out of pocket.

  19. Diabetic care in corrections.
    I work in a fairly small town county jail. The provider and I don't see quite eye to eye on our policies for diabetics. What I would like to know is how are other facilities managing diabetics,...

  20. Future of LPN?
    Nurse156, what you say is true. To me the very definition of nursing practice is a process of assessment and response - when it first became "policy" with nursing boards that LPN's don't assess I...

  21. Future of LPN?
    I assume they replaced the LPN's with RN's. I have noticed some hospitals here in Maine use LPN's under the title "medical assistant", but I don't know the details of their job description - I assume...

  22. Future of LPN?
    For as long as I can remember there has been talk of phasing out LPN's - I always thought that would never happen, but times have changed in the last 5 years. The areas of nursing that use LPN's has...

  23. Can I do this to help me insert a Foley?
    Sometimes with older females it goes easier to have them lay on their side with the top leg bent up as far as they comfortably can and cath from behind.
