  1. Handling rude co workers
    Lots of good advice, but my approach would be slightly different. I would keep it light-hearted and ask flat-out 'why are you rolling your eyes?' when they do it. Make a joke out it - 'what's on the...

  2. Falls at shift change...
    This is a lousy thing that happened, but... 1) just because the clock says 6 doesn't mean you are free. Until you do all the change of shift stuff then the hall is still yours - even if your...

  4. Flush that foley
    I would probably do 50ml with a 60ml syringe, but anything between 30ml - 100ml with Acetic Acid or NS should be good.

    I find Crocs very comfortable but can't wear them at work because I can't really hustle in them. Love them in my off time for relaxing. For work I just wear regular tennis shoes that I would wear...

  9. Evolution and Nursing
    Biblical creation and evolution are opposites and exclusive of each other. They cannot work together. The people that believe they do usually know little about one or the other. Or haven't given it...

  11. Discrimination against males in the nursing profession.
    It's not going to be an all or nothing situation. Sometimes men get preferential treatment and sometimes they are discriminated against. To say that either situation is ALWAYS the norm is simply...

  13. Is there a good way to wear a tie with scrubs?
    That tunic/smock thing looks neat, but I would be way too hot for something like that. I need some airflow.

  14. Should I work in LTC ?
    Work LTC on PRN basis and stay with the Home Health. Then after some time you would have a frame of reference for what to do next.

    So if you are educated as a doctor and lose your license for malpractice and get a job as a CNA then they pay you doctor wages based on your highest education?

  16. You are LVN, why are you applying CNA or MA?
    Most LVN's work in LTC but I don't see that in your list. Did you not mention them OR are you not applying to them? You can work below your license, but can only work at level of employment -...
