  1. The Agony of Da-Feet
    I've been wearing NIKE lunarglide for the past few years and they've been terrific. And this is coming from someone who had such excruciating foot pain and plantar fasciitis that I didn't know if I...

  2. Nurses with Medical Marijuana Cards.
    Very true. I was just commenting on my specific place of employment and their rational for not allow medical marijuana. They do allow people who are prescribed Marinol, though. They also allow...

    After you clearly corrected her, did she call you a tech again? If not, please don't hold a grudge. Work is hard enough as it is to harbor resentment towards someone who made an honest mistake. I...

  4. Nurses with Medical Marijuana Cards.
    Thank you for pointing this out. I was just getting ready to write that. I have many coworkers (in Nursing and Medicine) who take a variety of scheduled medications. All would test positive if...

  5. Walked in on a pt rolling a joint
    All I will say is that when I am dying, I hope I have the opportunity to enjoy as much IV Morphine, Ambien, Ativan and Norcos as I possibly can. My biggest fear with death is slowly dying while...

  6. Nurses selling at work?
    I never use to mind when people would ask for a small donation for Birthday gifts, but then it turned into (BIG donations) for weddings, baby showers, "divorce is final!" and on and on. The...

    Over the years, I have read many posts on AllNurses (often from experienced Nurses in specialized areas of care) stating that they have NEVER made any errors in their career. I always cringe when I...

  8. Describe your 10/10 pain. Piggybacking off of recent pain discussions.
    You're right! Everything you just said is common sense and everything I wrote was ridiculous. But, I am sticking to what I said before. I believe the patient and if they have a MD order for pain...

  10. Describe your 10/10 pain. Piggybacking off of recent pain discussions.
    I think the main problem is that many people are forgetting that the Pain Scale is 100% subjective. It's human nature to apply our personal interpretation of what a 2, 5 or 10 pain level is and...

  11. Occurence reporting to punish other nurses
    Reporting the "errors" of others seems to be a trait stemming from a feeling of little to no control or respect. Reporting someone and watching the aftermath from such a report can be very empowering...

  12. Why did you become nurses?
    1) Why did y'all become nurses? I was starting my Master's Degree in Psychology and I felt really panicked that I would be limited with career options. Because I had already taken A & P, Chemistry,...

  15. First or last name on stethoscope?
    Get a GPS on it. All of my stethoscopes grew legs and wandered off. It is so depressing to think that my co-workers steal, but they do. Now I use they cheap-o stethoscopes the Hospital provides.

  16. Am I the only one who hates 12 hour shifts??
    I hate 12 hour shifts. I would pick 8 hour shifts over a 10 or 12 any day. Twelve hours wipes me out and even if I have the next day off, it is really hard for me to get going. My favorite shift...

  17. CNN article on nurses and job growth
    I had to relocate over 12 years ago! The city I use to work/live was only hiring P/T nights-no benefits. From the Nurses I spoke with you could be stuck here for years. Forget it. I moved.

    Absolutely I would hire a nurse that has blown the whistle on a facility-and won! It shows me that the Nurse has intelligence, independent thinking skills and nerves of steel. If my facility is...

  22. Is it possible for a RN to work five 12 hr days?
    Yes, I did it. Not by choice, but through mandatory overtime. I guess my facility didn't care that long hours increase the chance of errors. Then, I had a 30-60 minute commute home (up to 2 hours a...
