  2. What kind of animal are you?
    Funny question and you handled it well. It reminded me of a new neurologist, while completing a mini-mental test, asking one of the stroke patients to act like a chicken. She cuts her eyes to me...

  3. How did retirement changed your life? Was it a dream or a nightmare come true?
    You've gotten views but no comments. I'm guessing most readers aren't retired yet. Even though you posted over a month ago, I'll try to offer a tip or two. I retired after almost 30 years, so unlike...

  4. Anyone started an unskilled, private pay home health agency/service/business?
    OP, I see a real need for this service, but I wasn't clear on one thing. Are you thinking of doing this yourself (as in one woman show) or are you planning on hiring others to work for you?" ...

  5. Verbal er orders...help me understand this
    Another option I didn't see mentioned, is to ask a colleague to be given the verbal order after you. If another nurse is standing by, what could it hurt? Your best protection isn't a union rep. It's...

  6. NCLEX Classes: Teaching?
    I think you guys have great ideas. One of the reason on line programs don't have as much interest is because its self directed learning and well..., life gets in the way at home, and the student...

    angelrnstat, Wow, what a great idea. You might not attract first time testers with good grades, but for those that don't make it or who have squeaked by in school, I bet that's the first term...

  9. Nurse bloggers/writers?
    Passionflower: I think your book idea is great especially since it presents entrepreneurial concepts to young girls. I can't count the times my nursing friends and I would toss the idea around. We...

  10. Nurse bloggers/writers?
    I'd like to second Overtonis's good advice to nurses wanting to blog for a living. I'd like to add a bit of advice for the newbie too, but first let me clarify, my blog is to serve as a platform for...

  11. Future Of Healthcare in America
    Couldn't read the article but the comments were entertaining. Apparently a feeding frenzy is just getting started as healthcare will merge into one too big to fail comglomerate. As one ED doc...

  12. Growth In Healthcare Employment... In Administration
    No that's not Christmas music, those are call lights! There aren't enough scripts to cover this fiasco. I pity the bedside nurses they must feel like prey when the pencil pushers show up.

  13. Taking time away from career-help!
    Taking time off to raise the kids used to be the norm, okay, a very long time ago. PRN is your answer. Work when the husband is at home and don't feel guilty. Guilt never fades I'm sorry to say,...

    Cayles, I'm retired but I wanted to offer a few comments. I'm guessing this is the standard resume your classmates will use too, but this is a dry uninteresting read. Were you voted any honors in...

  15. As a nurse, how do you impact healthcare in the world?
    Average bedside nurses take their personal time and go help out after natural disasters all over the world really, and you won't find that in a job description. Some collect meds and supplies to...

  16. Hospitals Pay A Price For Nurses Strikes
    Why do hospitals have to pay for "extra" security during a strike? Time to check that price tag out for the article. Back in the old days strikes got ugly, but does it get ugly in front of...

  20. Can I still be a good nurse when I have anxiety and low self esteem?
    I read your post and noted your sign in is sunnyskies2. ;) Sounds like a good outlook to me. The best way to get public speaking experience is to find something you believe in and volunteer. Hand...

  22. telephone orders
    Non medical facility? This makes no sense. However, most medical facilities have hospital policies to govern this issue. If you have questions, see charge nurse or nurse manager.

  24. UPDATE: Nurses Say Hospital Gave Them Choice: Assist Abortions or Lose Job
    I'm in shock. Hospitals are doing abortions or are they doing a D& C after a miscarriage? Miscarriages aren't abortions or they're not the ones we call legal abortions. Sometimes mothers lose...

  25. What field of Nursing has the least, and most math?
    There is no field in nursing where you don't do some form of math calculation. Math phobias hold so many people back from a job they can really love. Go straight to the Khan academy and start where...
