  1. Why is unionization a subject of taboo??
    First union I can recall, was led by the founding fathers. Second was led by Abe Lincoln, and continued by Rosa Parks, et al. A union is a group of people that sacrifice, so that their...

  2. UPDATE: Nurses Say Hospital Gave Them Choice: Assist Abortions or Lose Job
    If one side is wrong, then women are having to carry a fetus to birth and most likely give their child up for adoption. If the other side is wrong, then we commit millions of murders. No two ways...

    "Um, no. This is yet another example of why you cannot trust Fox News. Attorneys for the hospital had already notified the court that it would not require nurses to participate in the training or...

  5. UPDATE: Nurses Say Hospital Gave Them Choice: Assist Abortions or Lose Job
    I hate that response. "Do you remember being a fetus?" That's asinine. Do you remember being a two week old? No? Guess that thrown the argument right out that window! Oh, and the feeling pain? How do...

  10. A little frustrated.. need to vent...
    Med aids are a step above CNA's and a step below lpn's (although it's a big step lol). The reason most of them call themselves nurses, I believe, is that they are told (I believe in their classes,...

  11. Nursing School while still working?
    It really depends on how you learn. If I read your post correctly, you've got at least *some* college under your belt, so that helps a lot. You know how much you had to study to get the grades you...

  12. how will health care reform impact the nursing job market?
    I think the nursing shortage will come back with a vengeance. You'll have the pre retired nurses likely retiring again, those who were delaying finally getting to, and now millions of people who...

  13. "I don't need that medication... I've been healed"
    You could ask them, "Do you think its possible that God is healing you by assisting us in helping you?" Or some variation of that.

  14. Stop the nursing shortage insanity
    Well, also realize that when the economy finishes it's turnaround, all the nurses that were retired will most likely re-enter retirement, plus all the nurses that were headed that way anyways. On top...

  15. More CNA woes.
    You are the one bragging about edu ational superiority, not I. And IMO, if you have a masters degree and are working for CNA wages, then yes, your degree isn't worth what you wipe up all shift.

  16. More CNA woes.

  19. disappointed in myself
    This will probably be a bit of a long one... So I started my pre-req's for the local nursing program 5 (yes, 5!!!) years ago. I completed them in the normal time frame of 2 years. I didn't apply...

  20. Are you aware of how you conduct yourself in public?
    Are you, "Allowed" by HIPPA to talk about a pt at the nurses station? No. Why not? It's a violation of that pts privacy. If you walk up to a pt in the middle of the store and ask, "how they are...

  21. What is your biggest nursing pet peeve??
    My mom is full code, and has stage 4 endometrial cancer. She was given 6-12 months to live 15 months ago. She now appears to be on "deaths doorstep" and still chooses to be a full code. Should we...

  22. What is your biggest nursing pet peeve??
    I must disagree with #2. I'm sure there are pts that just want to "listen to things that are not to be heard", but, in my experience as a pt (actually, my wife was the pt while she was pregnant), I...

  23. Was this really a HIPAA violation
    1) You weren't working, weren't discussing a pt that you had while working, and did not share information about any pt with ANYONE. 2) Obvious. You had a release. You can't violate someone's privacy...

  24. Bummed
    Your point makes no sense. And I agree, you don't sound like a student. You sound like a CMA. When a nurse has to work (hard!) for 4+ years to get her license, they're going to be cautious about it....

  25. Do I need a PDA?
    A PDA is like txt msging, a cell phone, or a computer. No one NEEDS one, but once you have one, usually you don't know how you did without it. A PDA is really nice if you want to carry it around...
