  1. Keep my cell phone......or landline
    Commuter, I understand that. Texting for staffing needs seems very laid back, something that most hospital environments are not.

  2. Grand Canyon University RN-BSN
    My employer participating with GCU was a 15% discount. They did not give me the ANA discount at 10% and the employer discount at 15%. It was going to be one or the other, but not both. I got...

  3. Keep my cell phone......or landline
    First of all, I think it's unprofessional/obnoxious to send a text to an employee asking them to come in. When did they start that? I hope my employer never starts doing this. Second, if I'm on...

  4. HR's mistake hurt my paycheck
    I work with a nurse that had something similar to this happen. She was sent home before she even started working. I believe she knew it could possibly happen because she waited until the last...

  5. Do you "tell" Facebook where you work?
    The healthcare system I work for has 4 hospitals within its organization. I listed the healthcare system, but not the particular hospital. I've only posted good things about the job, and most of my...

  6. Grand Canyon University RN-BSN
    They still do offer a 10% discount for joining ANA. My employer partners with GCU at a better discount, that is the one they went with.

  7. The dumbest thing you've ever heard...
    When I worked in urgent care, a guy probably around 19 years old came in with "cold in penis." So I asked him, how did you catch a cold in your penis? He said "I don't know, but I just have green...

  10. What is more reccomendable for nurses now a days?
    I am so glad my employer doesn't color code the nursing staff. I always wear a print top. I don't think I own a solid colored top.

  11. Cops and Nurses
    About 10 years ago, I had a burnt out headlight and was speeding (a little). I got pulled over one night. The cop asked me where I was coming from. I told him work, and said I looked familiar. I...

  12. Call Lights
    I had a frustrating weekend with the call lights, since many of our patients seemed to be very needy. I am amazed how a person is able to ignore the same sound that is driving me crazy. Some of the...

  13. Do you think physicians could pass the NCLEX-RN?
    Since the NCLEX tests your nursing knowledge, and not your intelligence, I think with a good amount of preparation (since it's specific to a completely different scope of practice) an MD could pass.

  14. Never before have I been so disrespected by co-workers in the workplace
    Lol @ paleontologist! That raised my eyebrow, too. If I were at a job which I felt unappreciated and disrespected, I'd look for something else. I know a lot of times that's easier said than...

  16. Doctors not talking to nurses
    For the most part there is really good communication between our doctor and the nurses, especially with our hospitalists. But there's one MD in particular that comes in, sits down at the computer...

  17. Nurses that don't work holidays?
    When I worked in urgent care we had short hours on the major holidays. If I can recall, we'd be open until 3 or 5 pm. So maybe even in a clinic a nurse can get stuck working some part of a holiday....

  19. How often does this happen?
    This is what happened to me about a year ago. My 1st job as a new RN. Was devastated at the time, but ended up being the best thing for me. I've been on my current job for almost 9 months and I love...

  20. When someone asks you what you do for a living, do you say "nurse" or "RN" or "LVN"?
    I say I'm a nurse. If they probe further I will say RN. Nobody asks me if I'm an RN or LPN now, but when I was an LPN for some reason they seemed to ask that question a lot.

  23. If we make BSN the entry level degree, we should be paid more
    I have my ADN. I agree BSN should be paid more. It's a higher educational level. Most professions compensate for the difference between associate and bachelor...why not nursing? It probably wouldn't...

  24. Chamberlain, Capella, Kaplan, or who???
    Hi Flames, I was looking into this after reading your post. Are you an ANA member? I wonder if you can get the 10% discount with the $45 ANA membership? How were you able to test out of 2 classes,...
