  1. Becoming an NP with little to no nursing experience??
    Nurses cannot LEGALLY diagnose, but I don't know of a nurse that has not used their knowledge and experience, however much that may be, to come up with a diagnosis for their patients, at least in the...

  2. Becoming an NP with little to no nursing experience??
    I have not read any literature on the subject. It does not affect me personally so I don't have a great interest in it. I'd be willing to read an article or two though, if you care to post them, but...

  3. Becoming an NP with little to no nursing experience??
    That is correct, in general, I would not. The keywords to your statement in the second paragraph are "end up." There is no way that a brand-new NP with no nursing experience is going to have...

  4. Becoming an NP with little to no nursing experience??
    Agreed, it is a good way to learn, but it doesn't replace the experience that comes with bedside nursing. You don't have to answer but something to think about: All else being equal, do you think an...

  5. Becoming an NP with little to no nursing experience??
    This proves that you are good test taker. I would not feel comfortable with a new grad nurse taking care of a critically ill family member regardless of her GPA, nor would I feel comfortable with a...

  6. ER nurses not calling report anymore...
    The receiving nurse knows that the patient got IV meds because I would have just told her in report. That's the only way I would expect her to know. Ergo, the patient has an IV, right? I can't...

  7. ER nurses not calling report anymore...
    I agree that having an IV is important, but our patients are required to have an IV if being admitted, so it should be a given that they have one. Also, if I've just told the receiving nurse that I...

  8. ER nurses not calling report anymore...
    You know, it's really difficult not to reply to some of this with a sarcastic remark. It is obvious that you haven't spent any time working in an ER or it has been so long ago that you don't...

  9. ER nurses not calling report anymore...
    [QUOTE=FlyingScot;8181279]Believe me there's nothing an ED nurse likes to do more quickly than get rid of an admitted patient. We'd rather do full work up after full work up then have to mess...

  10. ER nurses not calling report anymore...
    I also don't believe that management would allow your ER nurses to get away with consistently holding admitted patients just to avoid getting a new one. It just doesn't pass the smell test.

  11. ER nurses not calling report anymore...
    Odds are that you don't really know what is happening in the ER and the reason for getting patients to the floor at that time of day. Once it's past a certain time of night, ER doctors often hold...

  12. ER nurses not calling report anymore...
    You're right, we really should just get rid of the emergency room altogether because the only nurses that know what they're doing work on the floor anyway. Us ER nurses are just useless!

    I know, right! Cuz it's not like we have patients to take care of or anything, I mean besides the one we are supposed to give report on. So we just go out of our way to make it difficult to give...

  14. Men in the (nursing) field
    If you want something that is forever changing you should try the ED. I'm not a people person by definition so it's easier for me to "fake" it with the constant turnover of patients. Plus, if you...

  17. On having 2 titles: Nurse and Patient
    I don't know who the "she" is that you are referring to. The term elder can refer to one or a group of people who are older in age, of course. But it can also be applied to those in some churches...
