  1. ADN's being pushed out
    I disagree that it's the "standard," but I wasn't telling you that you shouldn't do it. Just answering why I don't want it. I don't feel I need it for any of the reasons that you stated, since I...

  2. ADN's being pushed out
    Why don't I want it? Because I don't really need it. An ASN isn't every nurse's one and only degree. And yes it is a pain. Anyone who has taken statistics would probably say it's a pain, unless...

  3. Nurse Neglect/Abuse?
    I love people who start abusing the help when they don't get the exact answer they were hoping to hear. ESPECIALLY when they've just joined. Welcome, feel free to abuse us some more please!

  4. ADN's being pushed out
    I'm not sure your experience mirrors that of many ADN students, myself included. And why on earth would your hospital pay half the tuition for you to go to an ADN school and then not give you a nurse...

  5. ADN to BSN credit by exam instead of papers?

  6. Accused of HIPPA
    This brings up an interesting question. If a family member comes in and brings mamaw KFC and she's on a pureed diet, is it a violation for me to tell them that she's on a pureed diet and cannot have...

  8. 5 reasons customers are NOT always right.
    On the first one...if they are alert and oriented and I tell them the risks of not following the fluid restriction and they want more anyway? Sure would, and would document as such and that they're...

  9. Support for ADN's required to secure their BSN lacking
    They're opening new ADN schools in my home state (and not ITT Tech either - an actual brick and mortar) so they must not think much of it.

  10. Unbelievable
    I'm surprised that when someone comes in that everyone would be curious about, they don't computer audit the entire chart and blow everyone up that doesn't belong in the chart.

  11. Support for ADN's required to secure their BSN lacking
    What it has to do with anything is that the cost has at least tripled since then on nearly any school, and all of this "capstone" crap that they force people to do wasn't having the effect of ...

  13. 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...

  14. 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...

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

    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...

  23. 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.
