  1. Nina Pham and/or Amber Vinson
    I too am wishing them the best. They risked their lives to take care of someone most people would have ran away from. For that, they deserve the best care available and to live long, happy,...

  2. Second ebola nurse "okay'd" to fly
    To me, it seems as if the hospital (and the cdc) have vastly understated the risks of ebola. Now stories are coming out that nurses were told by supervisors that they didn't even need to wear masks!...

  4. Nauseous vs Nauseated (another grammar lesson)
    I have an unreasonable hatred for misuse of the word "nauseous". I literally want to scream when people do it.

  5. Monitoring nurse rounds??
    I believe they use radio frequency to monitor where you are and how long you are there. They also put them on equipment to monitor where it goes. I'm sure that says something unflattering about how...

  6. Ebola - do you have the right to walk away?
    Ultimately, I would do it. However, I'd want a HAZMAT suit , a buddy system, and a chemical shower before removing it.

  7. Ebola here in Dallas USA
    Well, it was only a matter of time. It's unreasonable in this day and age to expect invisible borders to stop the spread of any disease. We need to change our thinking from treating outbreaks of...

  8. Highest possible pay for ADN/RN
    As someone who has a close friend in IT who also wanted to leave and come over to the medical side - make sure you don't underestimate the amount of work and lack of perks in this field. I told my...

  11. Would you want your child to become a Nurse???
    Nope. I firmly believe that my children should be able to make a decent living without breaking their bodies and minds trying to fix the unfixable. One or the other is bad enough. :D You don't need...

  12. Drug Testing for Newly Graduated RN

  13. Drug Testing for Newly Graduated RN
    Oh, I see. "It's bad because it's illegal, and you're a bad person for doing illegal things." And then "It's illegal because it's probably bad." That's circular logic. Research does not support the...

  25. Taking away chairs from nursing station
