  1. Why can't I do everything a RN does as a LPN? We should be equal.
    Am I in the twilight zone, or did Lil'mama just say the EXACT SAME THING that many of us have been saying throughout this whole thread?? No-one has said they do not respect LPNs or we did not need...

  2. Why can't I do everything a RN does as a LPN? We should be equal.
    Saying an LPN should make as much money as an RN is like saying an RN should make as much money as a NP. Doesn't make any sense. There are different skill sets and education for all involved. It...

  3. Baby Friendly- getting a tad over the top
    It is not the necessarily the RN's misinterpretation, in most cases, it's management's. They make the rules in each facility based on their interpretation of the baby friendly initiative. You...

  4. Why are we still using the R word?
    I have a beloved niece who is mentally retarded. It is a crappy way to describe her. I prefer developmentally and cognitively delayed. I guess I dislike it so much because I grew up (a kid in...

  5. Male Nurses
    I would encourage you to apply. I do not work with any male nurses at this time, but have in the past and they did just fine. I will also say--I had a hysterectomy a few years back and had a...

  6. Reprimanded for reporting medication errors and so much more
    I was never in trouble in clinicals for something a fellow classmate did wrong. My grade and record reflected my own actions and no-one elses. When a mistake was made, and they were rare, the...

  7. Reprimanded for reporting medication errors and so much more
    Bottom line, the Instructor handles med errors, or any other error that occurs during clinicals. Not you. You seem to be pointing fingers, and at the same time forgetting YOU are ALSO a student. ...

  8. Checking A Patient's Blood Glucose In His Earlobe?
    She wasn't referring to you. Two other posters on page one mentioned sticking toes for blood glucose checks.

  9. Question? PA vs NP to work with healthy newborns in OB?
    I think some of it depends on where you live. I'm in Florida, and they do not hire PAs to work with babies in the nursery, sick or well. We have a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner who sees sick and well...

  10. 2 EKG strip questions
    That's a good question. I was also not sure it was a PAC since the P waves are absent and the T wave is mostly normal looking. That's why I was suggesting in a previous post that it could also be a...

  11. 2 EKG strip questions
    In the 1st beat, the PRI is about .14 secs. kinda hard to measure on a computer screen. :) if you measure the PRI in the heartbeats that are not early, they are all about the same, .14 secs. You...

  12. 2 EKG strip questions
    The R to R is irregular ONLY because of the early beats. if you look at the strip where there are no early beats, the rhythm is regular. sinus arrhythmia is a slight variance in rhythm where P,...

  13. 2 EKG strip questions
    I agree with many other posters here, strip #1 looks like SR with either PACs or PJCs. Since the rate is about 80, I would lean more towards PACs, but I agree maybe with a 12 lead or switching lead...

  14. Want to be a CNA & was arrested as a minor.
    I always thought that things you did as a juvenile were sealed. I would think that if you had committed a crime at 16, it should be gone from your record/not searchable. I would contact an...

  15. Praying in the work place
    I'm not sure why this is such an issue for people (the praying thing), but if it is, maybe you should bring it up with your manager instead of brooding over it and being uncomfortable. You do not...

  16. Peer Evaluations- Venting
    We do peer evals where I work. They are supposed to affect your merit raise, but I can't say they have because since they started doing them, no-one housewide has gotten a merit raise. LOL Bad...

  18. Male Nurses on the rise and they make more money
    I am not really sure what you are taking issue with here. But here is a link to the Bureau of Labor statistics. Some areas--indeed pay more than others. If it costs more to live there, wages go up...

  19. Male Nurses on the rise and they make more money

  20. Male Nurses on the rise and they make more money
    I was using an example. If you compared the salaries of a single man who has full custody of his child to a single woman who has full custody of her child, I bet the salary Is the same as well. The...
