  2. 5 reasons customers are NOT always right.

  5. Support for ADN's required to secure their BSN lacking

  7. Support for ADN's required to secure their BSN lacking
    Everything you have said is true. However, how about they let those of us who don't have a BSN worry about its effect on our employment? If they grandfathered everyone in, everyone would be RN's with...

  8. Unbelievable
    I'm sorry but this is redonk. I wouldn't sign the write up, that's ridiculous. (Is the facility endorsing a HIPAA violation? Is there a whistleblower suit that can be dredged out of this? I sure...

  10. I am moving and need to quit my job!
    I don't know what else anyone could say to make you understand that this varies by the job. It's usually in the employee handbook.

  11. Occurence reporting to punish other nurses
    I dunno, why should I be responsible for 30 minutes of changing tubing every time I work, including doing the detective work on "was it changed last night and just not labeled and/or documented? When...

    I guess it's not a publicly traded company? I think they have to publish the salaries of their executives.

  16. Accused of withholding pain medication
    Stepping off topic...what does your facility do when they want to come back in after that? Put them back through the ED? I would be ever so happy to AMA anyone who leaves the floor after we've told...

  17. Why do people insist on coming to work sick?
    Must be some pretty stupid coworkers if they think they can catch a stuffy nose and headache, but by all means keep smokin' that red herring.

  21. Diploma nurses are worthless?!
    There is a place for all of us. Requiring a BSN for entry to the bedside is just plain silly and short sighted. People get mad when I say this, but if they keep this up they shouldn't be surprised...
