  2. What draws non-nurses to AN.com?

  3. What draws non-nurses to AN.com?
    SAY WHAT? All of that sounds sexist to me. Seriously, I'm not overly concerned with the American Psychological Association; there's is merely a guideline and not necessarily a standard. It's funny...

    I'm not attempting to start a big issue here, but I'm going to turn this around on you dansamy. Knowing that when you joined the group you too were a Patient Care Tech and a Nursing Student, what...

  5. What draws non-nurses to AN.com?
    Well dansamy, I am a nurse and probably have been for most of your life and I see your Profile still list you as a Patient Care Tech and a Student Nurse. I would imagine you just haven't bothered to...

    I couldn't agree more and I can't help thinking if it were a male dominated profession, how different it would be. I just don't understand why it is that a group of educated women can't set down...

  7. New grads being rushed into "nursing maturity"
    Unfortunately, the State is usually going to side with the business interest over that of the employees, as they tend to share a mutual interest. Which was the point of my previous post. The more...

    Actually, I beg to differ with you. The State Legislatures could play a pivotal role in the number of students that the indivual schools allow to graduate each year. The State Legislatures would ...

    Im not exactly certain where to start, but since you decided to unload on my particular specialty with both barrels, start I will. Im interested in what exactly you might consider your own...

  11. New grads being rushed into "nursing maturity"
    The only problem with having an internship on nights is that there are far less procedures and therefore less learning opportunities in your average hospitals, then than there are on 3 to 11 and...

    It has been lingering in the conversation, but never really said out loud, those Nurses who try to fast track themselves and skip over as many steps as they possibly can, are doing THEMSELVES a grave...

    As I said, I was hopeful I was mistaken as that is a very drastic mistake and one I wish Hospital HR's and even Nursing Agencies and LTC facilities, would learn not to make.

  15. New grads being rushed into "nursing maturity"
    I'm afraid this is turning into a discourse where some of us will simply have to agree to disagree. I will never agree that a new grad should be allowed to cut their teeth in an intensive care unit...

    I couldn't disagree with you more. Perhaps that is true in some facilities, but it is the absolute worst mistake they could make. Hiring only warm bodies instead of the best candidates, they can...

    I agree completely. What baffles me is while all of this is going on; some of those same nurses are trying to be assigned to the specialty units. If they aren't yet fully qualified to work on...

  22. The way we ask for someone's pain level?
    Tewdles, you make a very good point, so far one that hasn't been spelled out quite as well. Each nurse or at least, each specialty needs to develop their own method or nomenclature to utilize when...
