  1. Will there ever be a surplus of nursing jobs again?!
    I happen to think that the "shortage" was nothing but contrived media propaganda in the late 1990s, which was hyped up by our government, depts of labor and industry, hospitals and nursing homes,...

  3. Angels with a broken wing
    I have not only seen the "horizontal" violence, but also the "verticle" where a doctor is as rude and nasty as can be, and this is also tolerated

    I just read the article and left a remark. It was a wonderful article and I am happy to have the opportunity to vent about it. This is such a problem in our profession and we all know that "only the...

    Excellent article. I posted a few responses to "nurses eating their young" . It is truly a demon in the profession and repeats itself year after year. I am hopeless when I learn that this happened to...

  6. Nursing Programs Asked To Reconsider Admission Standards
    When I tell people I am an unemployed nurse, I tend to get the "deer-in-the-headlights" look on their astonished faces, who believe wholeheartedly in the contrived propaganda of a nursing shortage....

  8. Unpaid jobs: The new normal?
    Beware of homecare agencies. They are all the same. They will waste your time and your gas dangling employment that does not exist. I was also cheated out of training pay. They advertise jobs as if...

  9. Job Satisfaction Declining for Nurses, Survey Says
    Excellent, excellent post. There never has been a nursing shortage. Its recycling of nurses, adding more new ones so that the market is so saturated wages fall to pitiful levels. One job I am after...

  10. Unpaid jobs: The new normal?
    I had an interview a month ago for a part-time RN. The employer received so many resumes, that they had each applicant "audition for a shift" and actually hired and paid no-one!. Last I checked it is...

  12. "Nurses Eating Their Young"
    One of the things that I never understood was why these "precepting nurses" are allowed to continue down a path of emarassing, humiliating, and chastising new hires. In most of my experience, the...

  13. "Nurses Eating Their Young"
    Every precepting experience I had was horrible. Hospitals are really the only places that do this, which is why I dont work in them anymore. In fact, I made it clear in an interview once that I...

  14. Do nurses get fired often?
    I have also noticed that the false "nursing shortage " propaganda helped to foster this environment of frequent firing. The more nurses there are, the quicker all nurses become a dime a dozen....

  15. Do nurses get fired often?
    I have noticed a disturbing pattern of new nurses getting fired. I attribute this to 2 things. 1. As soon as a nurse is eligible for medical benefits, days off and all of the other BS that is...

  16. Second Career
    In hospice, (though I have not been a hospice nurse) you are dealing with rollercoaster emotions that happen at the end of life. Mostly, the patient has accepted death, but the family has not. It...

    No anger with the old nurse who continues to work. Rather disappointment with any nurse who malingers on light duty, increases workload of others, does not pull her/his own weight, but refuses to...

    Be competent and able to do your job at any age, and there is no problem . There are plenty of nurses who want work, but cant find it. If you cant do the job, or wont, its time to go.

  24. 81 year old nurse still working strong!
    Well, I would have to disagree. A nurses plate is over full to begin with. At 70 or 30, if you cant do the job, find one that you can do, and make room for all of the new grads who are desperately...
