  1. Is it a good idea to write up another nurse or unit staff member who acts hostile?
    On the unit I work in, there's a certain night shift charge nurse (whom I rarely interact with, since we work different days) that some new nurses find a bit intimidating. I, a CNA, personally can't...

  2. If a patient wants something but an RN says don't do it, whom do you follow?
    There was this mini-issue (not even an incident, really) that happened at work, and I feel a bit troubled by it. OK, so I was caring for my unit's patients as the only nursing assistant one day...

  3. Should I apply for a job with my company's staffing agency if I need extra hours?
    I work as a nursing assistant and I absolutely love my job. I'm really busy 3 days a week, on 12h shifts, but I feel that I get a lot out of it. And my company's really great, too, and I genuinely...

  4. Is it right for my mom to keep me from getting the annual Flu Shot?
    But that doesn't address her mom's concerns about not getting the flu shot (d/t that article).

  5. ACC Nursing Fall 2013
    This might be a really stupid question, but you don't need letters of recommendation for this program, do you?

  6. Can a nursing instructor talk about the grade she gave you to hospital staff?
    I think I am too (worrying unnecessarily). I know that she'd just avoid me. Still, I'm committed to keeping things professional. I absolutely want to make the best impression possible and am just a...

  7. Can a nursing instructor talk about the grade she gave you to hospital staff?
    Well, okay. Thank you then. But hopefully it won't get to that point where I need a lawyer anyway.

  8. Can a nursing instructor talk about the grade she gave you to hospital staff?
    That's what I need to know: Whether or not I have grounds to seek legal advice in the first place. Suppose that my now-former instructor had said to other nurses, "Oh, that new CNA, that person was...

  9. Can a nursing instructor talk about the grade she gave you to hospital staff?
    You're missing my point. If my new manager had known who my instructor was (which I doubt) and asked about me, that's fine. For common-sense reasons, one would obviously list references of...

  10. Can a nursing instructor talk about the grade she gave you to hospital staff?
    The CNA position I had applied to and had gotten the job for did not require one to be a nursing student, much less provide transcripts or academic records. Moreover, why would they? I didn't get an...

  11. A Phone Call
    But you still technically broke HIPAA, right? Or is verbal consent from an obviously Altered Mental Status (AMS) patient okay to give out patient health status info on the phone? Thank God you...

  12. Can a nursing instructor talk about the grade she gave you to hospital staff?
    Aren't student records confidential, though? I mean, sure, the former nursing instructor isn't my boss, and my CNA work obviously is a very different role from that of a nursing student, but it's an...

  13. Can a nursing instructor talk about the grade she gave you to hospital staff?
    Recently I got hired at a hospital nearby as a CNA, which is wonderful because I'm taking this year off (2013) from nursing school and I do want more clinical experience. I felt that I wasn't getting...

  15. Austin Regional Clinic
    Does anyone here work at ARC? I applied for a PRN position there but I don't know anyone who works at any of the ARC clinics, so was hoping to talk to-slash-semi-network with someone there.

  16. UTHSC Houston applicants: What's the difference between Traditional & Accelerated BSN
    Fascinating. I'll definitely look into the traditional program. It seems that the admissions requirements for both the accelerated and traditional programs are identical, so that's good. I looked...

  17. Are there any Second Degree BSN programs that AREN'T accelerated?
    Very interesting. Thank you for this info. Ideally, I'd like to stay in my region of Texas (won't disclose that on this board, as it may give away my real-life identity). This isn't just because of...

  18. Are there any Second Degree BSN programs that AREN'T accelerated?
    Oh okay! I wonder if I can directly apply for admissions into a Traditional BSN program. I wouldn't want to retake the SAT (which I took a decade ago​) and go through undergrad admissions again...ugh.

  20. FT Techs: What are the most popular and least popular days of the week to work?
    So I recently got a job as a clinical assistant, and as I understand it we get to sign up for the days we want. In other words, it's not as if I've been assigned every "Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday",...

  23. Are there any Second Degree BSN programs that AREN'T accelerated?
    I know that in those accelerated programs, they squeeze in 2 years worth of nursing education into 1 year. Then you take the NCLEX-RN. I sorta don't want to do an accelerated program, though. How...

  24. What do PCTs or clinical assistants do when they aren't working?
    So a full-time position for a PCT or a CNA or a CA is going to be generally either 7a to 7p, or 7p to 7a, and it's 3 days a week. That leaves 4 other days. The problem is that these nursing...
