  1. Death, Abuse and Alcohol
    I grew up in an Irish/Aboriginal family. Alcohol was, and still is, a part of life. I think teaching responsibility is far superior than the puritan style abstinence I've seen on this thread. My dad...

  2. Safety for Nurses and Nursing students
    I'm just going to be honest, speaking as someone who's be violently attacked in the past. I carry a knife, and I have, in the past, had to pull it. Thankfully never had to use it, however. To put...

  3. Today I screwed up...
    Long story short, today was my first day of second semester clinical (flu shot issues). My rotation is in an LTC facility and the patient I had used a rotater walker. Well, a classmate told us an...

  4. 16 year old in the ADN nursing program, now they're asking me to withdraw? :
    I honestly don't think that's true. I just started nursing school myself, and I'm 17. The youngest person in my class too. Then again, I live in Canada.

  5. Weight gain?
    I find this will probably make me LOSE weight. I'm not eating as much as I did at home, and I'm actually much more active as I have to walk everywhere. That, and I'm one of those types who's...

  6. What is it with nurses and cell phones? Just a vent.
    Some students keep their phone in their pocket, on vibrate. And only answer when the instructor ISN'T talking. Would you deduct say 5% of a students grade if you passed by close enough to hear it...

  7. What is it with nurses and cell phones? Just a vent.
    Actually, due to extremely LONG wait times in Canadian ER's, I was using mine to keep in contact with loved ones who were worried. That, and when I was the only person in there at 9 o clock at night,...

  8. I need to vent
    A week after starting school, I'm already having problems. Why? I HAVE NO DAMN MONEY! The school bookstore only had TWO used copies of books. Why should ONE book that is 200 pages long cost two...

  9. Which nursing specialty or position is the most physically demanding?
    I'm a nursing student, but my hate goes off to them too. I could NEVER handle the burn unit. I actually faint at the sight of third degree burns. ._. Full body charring? Worst thing that could ever...

  10. Incompetent Supervisors
    I'm sorry to hear that. With what you've done in the military, I'm surprised you don't have job offers lefts and right. I'll echo what others have said, and say that you probably should sue this...

  11. Flu Vaccine, enough already!
    Herd immunity does nothing for contaminated surfaces. Are you going to systemically disinfect EVERYTHING someone may touch, including banknotes? Mass disinfection has also been shown to speed up the...

  12. Flu Vaccine, enough already!
    I agree 110%. It takes a lot to make me get a shot that I KNOW will make me feel ill rather than negate the risk of maybe feeling Ill.

  13. Flu Vaccine, enough already!
    I misspoke on that I suppose. But I do believe the vast majority of healthy individuals don't particularly need a flu shot. If you're not elderly or immune compromised, yeah you'll feel like garbage...

  15. Another slightly silly question re: supplies
    I've got a Cheshire cat t shirt. It's adorable. I agree with everyone else, do what makes you happy. My teachers already told my mum they don't care what I look like as long as I do my homework. Lol...

  17. Flu Vaccine, enough already!
    They're requiring the flu vaccine for by BSN program. I am against the flu vaccine. For one thing, it's last years strain. Completely useless against this years, you will still get the flu unless you...

  18. Are you a nurse with "alternative" spiritual beliefs?
    I'm a wiccan and actually just starting a BSN program next week. I never take my pentacle off really. I live in a very small town, and used to take quite a bit of grief. Since I'm still up north, I...

  19. Should I become a nurse for the money??
    Are you kidding? They seriously CHARGE nurses in Ontario to maintain their registration? That's ridiculous. Please tell me they don't do this elsewhere.

  22. Wet Hair Don't Care?
    Oh I feel your pain. I have spiral ringlet curls, and my natural haircolour is a white/ashy blonde (I dye it black). What I do, mostly since I like it better, is straighten it. Then, since I live up...

  23. FBI Fingerprinting Background Check
    In Canada it's the same thing. The RCMP is our FBI equivalent and I need a police vulnerable sector records check done before I can even start clinicals.

  25. Curious Question
    I don't think it's necessary to delete it. On top of that, it's very easy now to control who sees what. If you have something you don't want someone to see, you set it so they can't. Friends only and...
