  2. How do I keep integrity
    You keep your integrity by not knowingly doing the wrong thing. It's easy enough to make a mistake without realizing, why would you deliberately choose to circumvent the rules?

  3. In light of the recent NETY thread that was closed...
    I'll vote to ban the PVT threads. Now can we also ban the threads about "You're going to be a great nurse even though you've failed the NCLEX 7 times. Don't give up on your DREEEEAAAAAAAAMMMMMMM!"

  5. Ever accepted a job you knew was a mistake?
    Yes, I have. But I needed to support my husband, pay the bills and eat. It was not fun, and I didn't enjoy the work but I was able to pay the bills so it was worth it.

  6. Communicating with Doctors
    It's easy to blame the physicians for being uncooperative, patronizing, etc. but first we have to look at our own part of the interaction. Are we calling them incessently with little bits of...

  7. How much trouble am I ? Scale: 1 to super fired

  8. Becoming an NP with little to no nursing experience??
    It's becoming increasing clear that you don't know what you don't know. While I hope you correct this knowledge deficit before graduation, I realize that's extremely unlikely. If you want to be a...

  9. Becoming an NP with little to no nursing experience??
    "Working even if you don't have experience" while you're in school is one thing. Being an effective NP without bedside experience is quite another.

  10. Are 24-Hour Open Visitation Policies a Bad Idea? (Yes)
    We've always made exceptions for patients who don't speak English and have a family member at bedside to translate for them. Unfortunately, MOST of the time, those family members expect to sleep all...

    First, please use the "Quote" button. Second, you have no basis to judge whether anyone who responds to your rather ignorant post is a nurse who "eats their young" as you admit to not even knowing...

  16. I HATE bedside nursing
    Since you are just starting school and haven't been a nurse yet, you really have no idea about games, politics or harsh people in nursing. I assure you, they're not as prevalent as allnurses posters...

  20. Don't Know Where Else to Ask This

  21. This is wrong, right?????
    You're wrong, kind of. If the med is due every four hours, or even every six, I'd be danged sure I gave it within the one hour window. So if a patient had meds due that frequently, I'd get to them...

  25. Transition from Student to RN??
