  3. Drug Testing for Newly Graduated RN
    I don't think anyone here is advocating driving or working while under the influence of anything, including marijuana. And no, I don't believe it's been proven that marijuana and driving is as...

  7. Requiring a BSN degree for an ADN scope of practice
    Why do you believe that one would not need or use the knowledge gleaned in BSN classes? Yes, and what Maryjean asked - what are the specific skills and knowledge you're referring to?

  8. Why do epidurals fail?
    If one third of your patients are getting epidurals that fail, I would say that it's something wrong on the part of the anesthesiologist. Are your epidurals given with a PCA?

  9. Requiring a BSN degree for an ADN scope of practice
    There is no difference between scope of practice. There is no such thing as "ADN scope of practice". Both are RNs and that is what dictates scope of practice.

  10. Do you chart lies?
    Not all postpartum patients have IVs. Nevertheless, I would never give an IV med without the patient's awareness/consent in OB.

  11. The best excuses for positive drug screens
    I am so opposed to performing any type of test or procedure on a person, against their will, who is mentally capable of decision-making. The field of obstetrics is still so paternalistic,...

  13. ADN to MSN online? With no specialty?
    I don't know any MSNs that do not specialize in some way. There are MSNs that do not confer advanced-practice nurse status. Such as nursing leadership or nursing education.

  14. I'm transferring with less than a year until I graduate.... Am I crazy?!
    OP, sorry about the meta-discussion. Life on the internet. I think you'd be making a good choice to leave your current program and enroll in an accredited BSN program, even if it takes an extra...

  15. Nurses with worse spelling than mine are laughable.
    That is seriously the most bizarre thing I've heard in a long time. Never ever have I heard that. I just asked my husband, and he looked at me as if I have 3 eyes. FWIW, I'm originally from...

  16. Nurses with worse spelling than mine are laughable.
    How on earth is "finna" a replacement for "gonna"? That makes no sense to me. Is it shorthand for "fixing to" perchance? I wonder if it's regional - for those of you who hear "finna" regularly -...

    Apparently so! This thread is the very first time in my life I've ever heard "finna" - what the heck is that, anyway?

    You don't have to say "Are you having suicidal thoughts?" You can say "Have you had any recent thoughts about harming yourself or anyone else?" But if you are dealing with a patient who has a psych...

  22. Nurses with worse spelling than mine are laughable.
    This morning? Like I said, I use it all the time. "With whom did you go to the bar and get drunk?" "I have no idea to whom these stinky socks belong; they're going in the trash!" Even my 6yo uses...

  23. Nurses with worse spelling than mine are laughable.
    That's whack. I use "whom" all the time. It is SO not archaic; most people just don't know how/when to use it correctly.

    Per our education department, no need to change the needle. One entry into the vial is not enough to dull the needle enough that it would make a difference. The only time I change out the needle is...
