  1. Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive
    Just tell the truth before you end up digging yourself in deeper and get a reputation as being a fibber.

  3. Completely and totally disgusted.
    Don't believe a word they're telling you! Insurance companies will try to keep from paying at any opportunity. It is against the law to consider pregnancy a pre-exsisting condition. I can understand...

  4. Cabbage Soup Diet!
    It's only water weight loss and it will come back as soon as you start eating again even if you start eating again at a reduced amount. It's totally water. Period. You suffered for nothing.

    I am so sorry to hear about your trouble with the NCLEX. It makes no difference how many questions you did or didn't get nor does it matter what state you are in. Surely you know everything you...

  6. Transportation of the deceased neonate
    I agree that a plastic container is disrespectful. I wouldn't want it for my child. On the other hand I think the fancy decorated basket is too much. It's not a joyous occasion. I think wrapping the...

  9. Humiliation and embarassment after NCLEX failure
    Try not to worry about the people talking about you behind your back, that only means you're already two steps ahead of them. I know several very good nurses who failed their first NCLEX. I know one...

  10. Did you catch a disease while working as a nurse?

  14. Starting to freak out!!!
    4 days training? Don't sweat 4 days. Patients are patients whether in the NH or Hosp. Age knows no lack of disrespect and ungratefulness. Good Luck in your pursuit.

  17. 3% NS
    Yes, 3% NS should always be on a pump. It's way too easy for a patient/family member to fiddle with the dial-a-flow and increase the flow. Some people fiddle with them just out of nervousness not...

  20. What you'd REALLY like to say....
    Thank you, I love Broadway, I live near NYC. I had aspirations of Broadway then decided I might better serve myself by getting an education. I love nursing but I'm still auditioning now and again.

  21. My son called me lazy for being sleepy during the daytime!
    They may not be meant to hurt but they hurt just the same. A child who is old enough to be selfish is old enough to know better. The attention he may be seeking is more than likely Mom's attention at...

  25. What you'd REALLY like to say....
    I can't say what I'd really like to say, I think it's more appropriate to remain politically correct. I will say that I want to ask those who call Medicaid their insurance how much their premiums are?
