  4. Are you a BUILDER or DEMOLITON
    This subject has been debated for years here. I'd suggest you do a search for "nurses eat their young". For me, I've never believed in this adage. Nurses, in general, DO NOT eat their young....

  7. why do nurses hate medics?
    In my small town ER, I didn't experience this at all. We have medics who work in the ER with the nurse (only one nurse and two medics). We are a team. When I worked in a bigger city ER, I could...

    Kids come in all the time with those kinds of complaints - we use small baggies of ice wrapped in a tissue. Mostly from the playground and the Bun's Up game or soccer.

  14. Don't think my marriage will survive night shift
    It is pretty normal to have these issues so I wouldn't consider it a marriage-breaker. You said you don't need to work and are financially ok. Have you considered waiting until your child is in...

  21. Substance abuse...Who calls the parent?

  22. Substance abuse...Who calls the parent?
    I do an assessment if called (I cover 11 campuses in two towns) but it is up to the administration of the school to call the parents. THEY have the power to suspend the student. The nurse does not.
