  1. when an employee "tattles"
    Ask the "teller" if they are modeling the professional behaviors of nursing. I would inform them of how destructive gossip can be and how that behavior can negatively reflect on an evaluation. You...

  2. I feel like I'm never going to get good at IVs
    Keep going... If you are continually trying to improve your practice, it is inevitable. I was once "counseled" on my IV success rate, and have since become the "go-to" person for difficult hospital...

  3. Am I being bullied? Or is this normal?
    Things that you "don't know you should have done" is a failing of your orientation. Do you have an educator? You might find a tactful way to explain you don't feel the orientation was sufficient. But...

  4. Ed.D. Instructional Technology
    Hmmm... I teach at two Universities. I would think that would be an excellent degree. Online education is not a dying field. And, it would allow you to rise high in the leadership structure as you...

    I'm a flight nurse in the WY Air Guard, you can PM me if you like. And you can commission into a CCATT slot. Your best bet is to find a unit, contact them, and apply through them. To the OP, I think...

  7. Colorblind Flight Nurse in Military?
    Not a problem. Although they are not medical, I know a number of officers who are red-green blind. I'd be shocked if there was a restriction for medical. I think it only matters for pilots. Good luck.

  8. Scheduling for 12 shifts pattern
    12 hours shifts? 07-19 and 19-07. Each person works 3 shifts per week. Maybe I'm not understanding your question. That's 14 shifts per week for each nursing position. This takes a minimum of 6 people...

  9. Highest possible pay for ADN/RN
    Possible, yes, feasible, no. If you worked your way into a high demand speciality, then worked at a hospital where they allowed overtime, and worked a bunch of it, perhaps. Otherwise just get two...

  10. Transitioning from FNP program to MSNEd
    The MSN is a huge boost for teaching of any kind. It is required for a college teacher, and will put you way ahead in a hospital educator job. Since you have so much invested, I would continue. The...

  11. Troops to Fight Ebola
    If you send one service person you need to support them. Security, food, lodging, medical care, supplies and so on. Personally I believe that Africa should take on the responsibility themselves (read...

    That's why pulling someone back from the brink is so awesome. Some people have terminal conditions that nothing can fix. It's sad, but you should feel that you did everything that was in your power...

  13. Injured Nurse, Can I still teach?
    A free Masters would be terrific. It also sets you up for all sorts of ancillary health care jobs, education of all sorts, business, technology rep, whatever. Maybe you should get a MBA, this is...

  15. Trying to decide between accelerated BSN, entry-level MSN-NP, and ADN
    If you are bent on getting your NP I would BSN first. This can get you a job and experience. You don't want to become an NP with little nursing experience (my opinion). Also, I would go with a good...

  16. Masters in Education Advice/Help
    You just need sufficient time in your week. I think I spent about 8 hours per week per class, but that varied a lot (usually more not less). If you have a Capstone project that will be a second job...

    Who cares how it's perceived? Make it your own. You are right that it is challenging, with lots of problem solving, and science! Titrating drugs, keeping someone alive (for example), is totally...

    If psych is your interest, research psych facilities in your area. You wouldn't specialize within psych, you'd get it all. A psych hospital would have the highest acuity patients. You won't have a...

    As miserable as she made you, at least she left your life and you're off the hook. That poor guy has to live with her, and she has to live with herself. What's that like? Could be worse, she could be...
