  5. Am I a bad person?
    I can't believe they said that to you! It's none of their business. You are job searching, and you have every right to cast your net far and wide! I would NOT want to work at that hospital....

  6. Retirement in the nursing field.
    Not sure where you are going with this, but it smacks of ageism. Any nurse should be evaluated on her PERFORMANCE, not her/his age. I am in my forties, and need glasses. A friend of mine, a...

    please understand that you LOVE your mother. While you will care about (some!) of your pts., you will never love them as you do your mother. So that emotional vulnerability will not be there. ...

  9. I got fired today, how will that affect my chances?
    If you were only making out, they should NOT have fired you, IMO. A reprimand should have sufficed. If that is all you are guilty of, I wouldn't give this another thought.

    Let's not make this into some catastrophe for nurseAdam. Was it poor judgement? AbSOLUTELY. Who here has not been guilty of that? Perhaps not in this way, or even in our professional lives, but...

  13. No, I'm Not a Beauty Shop!
    Earrings that are not replaced can cause the piercing to close, necessitating a re-piercing. New piercings can become infected, easily. To me, this is personal hygiene. Unlike make up, or clothing...

    I work Med-Surg. It's 1:6 (in the South), and it's TOO MUCH. It really ought to be 1:4. 1:5 would be "okay". 1:6, I RARELY leave before 8pm, and way too often it's 9pm. And I have EXCELLENT time...

  20. I feel like they should change the title of this site to "reasons why my job sucks"
