  2. CNA and CPR
    Getting hung up on that mentality is why they put that policy in place. They may as well go all the way & make the policy to just call 911. (remember that story & thread?) Can all three nurses...

  3. Do nurse managers and recruiters actually listen  when an employee gives a verbal referral
    Yes, the applicant puts the employees name down & then if hired, the employee gets a small bonus; however if the new employee stays, there are 2 additional bonus pmts when they are there 6 months &...

  4. Do nurse managers and recruiters actually listen  when an employee gives a verbal referral

  5. Valedictorian caught cheating
    I beg to differ. It does matter. Assuming by some miracle she does pass NCLEX, this nurse may very well be a coworker some day for OP (or any number of us). She lacks the integrity to follow...

  7. Valedictorian caught cheating
    What? Are you saying that anxiety may have caused her to cheat & she shouldn't be punished unless it happens a 2nd time? I'd say it's a safe bet that when she was caught, it was not the 1st time...

    Won't it be interesting when the valedictorian of the program can't pass NCLEX.

  9. Bullied
    I really don't quite see a clear picture of how she is bullying you exactly, or being rascist for that matter. Not sure why she is able to influence what shift you are scheduled to. When you...

  10. CNA and CPR
    Sorry, but that is a stupid policy. CPR is not rocket science & delaying it because the RN is not bedside can only harm the patient.

  12. Did the PVT trick and paid the 200
    Justbepatient, the NCLEX-RN is good in all states after you pass. You just need to be licensed in the state you wish to work. There is no reason to put the time, money, effort & stress into taking...

  13. Daniels smartsharp container
    Are they throwing the tubing in because of the spike perhaps? My facility policy is that the spike is considered a sharp unless it is connected to a bag. So it goes in the normal trash when the bag...

  16. Use these TIPS..There's no such thing as studying for the NCLEX
    An answer that says "always" or "never" is usually wrong. If you have 2 options that are the exact opposite of each other, one of them is usually the answer.

  17. Feeling Discouraged....Did I choose the right profession?
    As PRN, how many hrs do you work each week? If your shifts are random & irregular, it will take much longer to get comfortable with the duties & responsibilities of the job (any job) without feeling...

  18. Family issue..Thoughts?
    Call her on it. Move out (if not now, then definitely when you graduate). I guarantee she will talk to you again, even if it's just to beg you to come back. Live your own life & let her figure out...

    I had their cardiology model & really liked it (until someone else liked it as well & it disappeared). It was a bit on the heavy side though. I now use their version of an ultrascope which I think...
