  1. Difficult CNA's?
    I am a lot like you, and have found that people take calmness as a weakness. If this particular CNA is a problem, document her behavior and turn it over to the manager. I've dealt with CNA's that...

  2. DO NOT pass on the poop
    Don't be too hard on yourself!! For the most part you have actually been correct to goof on that word. If you actually read the whole dictionary post to the end it basically says that it is a word,...

  3. Random question: Would you wear a $300 watch to work
    One of the wisest pieces of advice I ever got from a nursing instructor was, "If it would upset you to drop something in the toilet, I don't wear it to work." It has worked out well for me, I'm...

  4. Oldest patient
    102 on a m/s tele floor. She was still with it and a full code (I checked with the MD and the patient, who both confirmed the code status was correct). I have never had my eyes so fixated on a tele...

  5. Pharmacist-turned-RN?
    If I could make one suggestion it would be to shadow an RN for several full 12 hour shifts before you decide to pursue nursing. The images that people in one field of healthcare have in their heads...

    Don't quit, it is easier to get a job when you already have one, but I would start looking around for something else. Update your resume, and send it to some hospitals with open dayshift, or at...

  8. Dr Oz's show on antidepressants...your thoughts?
    I wouldn't let a psychiatrist operate on my heart, so it makes sense not to take mental health advice from a heart surgeon.

  9. Suffering through a medication error
    It seems like your facility may need to review it's med administratin policy. My guess is that if a seasoned nurse did it twice, it has happened to other nurses as well, who may have been too afraid...

  13. Which states are great for nurses to work in??
    It is more about the individual hospital than the state. For example I traveled to 2 different systems in Pennsylvania. One was awesome, one was miserable. Check out turnover rates. I work in...

  16. Needing Advise
    Soooo I'm feeling a little confused. Why was a patient who had been there 20+ days discharged at that hour? Seems like an issue between the MD and management. I doubt it wasn't a surprise that the...

  17. Moving Missouri to Boston, MA. Do you need BSN to work at most major hospitals there
    It is pretty competitive here. I don't want to say it is impossible to work in a hospital without a BSN, but it will definitely be a challenge. I know a few hospitals that won't even look at you...

  20. Is your Facility 'forcing' you to get the Flu Vaccine?
    You have posted a list of common vaccine ingredients from the CDC website, NOT the ingredients of the flu vaccine. I did not say that there is no aluminum in any vaccines, I said that it is not in...

    You have the right not to get the shot, but unless you physician is telling you that it is contraindicated, the facility has the right to say that you can not work there if you refuse. I can see a...
