  1. Do you think too tight pants causes abdominal problems?

  2. Unobserved fall and I feel awful!
    You can't be present everywhere all the time. You cannot blame yourself for this. Accidents really do happen, even to the most alert and astute nurses. It's normal to feel guilty, especially if...

  3. Post-Op Pain with PCA
    I can't speak for other facilities, but I've never seen a patient come out of the OR with a PCA. I've never even seen a patient come out of the PACU with a PCA. We have always set up PCAs when the...

  4. Nurses with worse spelling than mine are laughable.
    I'm not sure "respect" is the right term, but thanks--I think. ;) I've had enough similarly-worded posts aimed in my direction here on AN that I apparently started to retain the lack of...

  5. Pearson Vue: Bullies?
    When I saw this thread, I was afraid to let myself read it for fear of reflexively producing a scathing response that would've surely earned me points from the mods. Then I saw Wooh was the OP. ...

  6. Being a nurse in the army
    Still not worth it. If you're not in love with the Army, don't join. Maybe. Some military supervisors are really nitpicky. Even more so than in the civilian experience, your job...

  8. Night shift and Headaches?
    My husband is a chronic migraine sufferer. Your sleep schedule (and the number of hours you sleep) is a potential migraine trigger. Changes in hormones on different shifts can trigger headaches and...

  9. Freaking out
    The only way to get over your fears is to confront them. I drove just shy of 1,700 miles to get to training, home and my first duty station. I moved to one of the biggest cities in the US where...

  11. Starting to find some aspects degrading
    Agreed. The problem is, half the time, my cat's already in the closet with the can of tuna--and he's not so easily parted with it!

  12. Glioblastoma: Is this typical?
    There are different, basic treatment regimens typical to specific types of cancer, but the regimen that is prescribed is going to be personalized based on your grandmother's physical condition, the...

  13. Army Nursing: All Good Things Must Come To An End
    You're probably right, as much as I doubt my own words as I type. If I think back to a few years ago, though, I'm sure I'd vehemently agree!

  16. Trauma nursing in Iraq or Afganistan
    Only military nurses work as trauma nurses in the areas you're talking about. I'm not aware of civilian medical organizations working in those areas at present. Joining the military right now is...

  18. Where O' Where are the wise ones?
    It has indeed been unreasonably hostile on AN of late. Hostile and dense, I might add. I don't mind a good, intelligent debate, but I wouldn't insult the terms "good", "intelligent" or "debate"...

  19. Joining the navy as a health care team or as regular crew member?
    I can't imagine why you'd join as anything other than a nurse with a BSN. Have you passed the NCLEX here in the US? If you did choose to either enlist or go in as an officer with a BSN but didn't...

  20. Being Fired as a CNA, feeling that it wasn't my fault.
    It's one thing to accuse a coworker of poor performance. It's another to accuse them of something illegal. Without any proof, you really have no case and you made yourself an easy target for the...

  21. "Keep your nursing skills"? What is it?
    There's physical skills and then there's critical thinking. Critical thinking fits into everything you do, including physical skills. For example, when accessing a port--especially one of an...

  23. Do I have to join facebook?
    To take this on a tangent, you could create an account using a false name or an adaptation of your real name. That way you could be accepted to the group, but no one else would be looking for you.

  25. What is EMT basic like?
