  1. No Good Deed Goes Unpunished
    I've been thinking about this post since I first saw it. I had never ever considered that AN was "big business", but now that it's been pointed out to me, I cannot stop thinking about it. It...

  2. Sure to Get Flamed for This
    No, but they were probably seduced by the popular book that was out there about nurses eating their young. It's a nice theory, isn't it. If nurses eat their young, then any problems I, as a new...

  3. Sure to Get Flamed for This
    Don't let what you read scare you. There's no more "young eating" or lateral violence in nursing than there is any place else; there's just more talking about it. The saying "nurses eat their...

  4. The first year wasn't so bad... now I'm struggling
    In the past two years I've been on two extended medical leaves -- with almost a year between them. In the interim, our unit has been moved to a different area of the hospital as the hospital is...

  5. Do you ever contend with pesty ancillary staff?
    I actually have said "Wouldn't it be better to just talk to the provider?" and given them the number. Now our hospital policy has changed: pharmacy calls the provider directly to answer questions...

    I don't understand -- why shouldn't anyone see your bra through your white top?

  8. Should I quit my job, sell my house and sail to Hawaii?
    But of course don't take you children with you because that will make you a bad parent. (See the story of the Rebel Heart see rescue and read some of the nasty comments made to the Kaufmans.)

  9. Should I quit my job, sell my house and sail to Hawaii?
    I'm planning to sell my house, quit my job and sail around the world starting next year some time. Right now, there are sailboat parts all over the basement and the dining room table, so we've got...

  10. blackballed
    Here's a thought: You're posting under what is probably your own name. Have you posted anything that management might find objectionable? I see you've only made 10 posts -- were they all in this...

  11. Must say Good-bye to.....
    Sounds like you have hammer toes. Check out New Balance -- they make some black shoes, and have way more support than Dr. Scholl's.

  13. Of Nursing, Nudity and Public Perception
    In my long career, I've only worked with one nurse who sexualized patients. He's gone now, moved on to become a nurse practitioner, and I sincerely hope I never encounter him again. The posts...

  14. I Remember What It Was Like To Be A Terrified Nursing Student.
    I asked the OP in my very first post on the thread if there was a reason she had delayed so long in renewing her license. There were several posts bemoaning how "HR's mistake" or "IT" had hurt her...

  15. I Remember What It Was Like To Be A Terrified Nursing Student.
    The thing is, so many are not only impeding patient care (icuRNmaggie's example) but disruptive. That's a change in the last decade or so. Visitors used to be respectful of the hospital staff, the...

  16. I Remember What It Was Like To Be A Terrified Nursing Student.
    That's your opinion and, of course, you are entitled to it. But if I really disliked young people and new nurses, I wouldn't spend the time, energy and bandwidth that I do trying to help them grow...

  20. Cardiac Unit as a New Grad
    You're going to need at least (at the very least) two solid years of experience in the specialty you wish to travel in (poor grammar, I'm sorry) before you become a travel nurse. You'll be in a new...

    Divorce is painful. I went through one while learning to be a competent nurse. It certainly didn't HELP my learning curve!

    You did the right thing. You absolutely did the right thing. It sucks to be penalized for doing the right thing, but you did the right thing. Part of being a nurse is advocating for your patients,...

  24. HR's mistake hurt my paycheck
    HR probably doesn't have anyone with the time to check the BON website every day. IT definitely doesn't; they were outsourced. The thing is, renewing the day before your license expires is waiting...

    I hope I've helped make AN a better, more fun and educational place. Even with the best of intentions, though, you always offend someone and you just cannot fix stupid.
