  2. a "friend" looked me up on the BON?????
    I disagree with the way a lot of the posters on here are acting like this mystery woman is the spawn of Satan. She's just another person. I doubt she is out to get anyone. She probably doesn't have...

  3. What is so difficult about this question?
    When I'm doing an admit I tell people "Tell me yes or no if you currently have or have had any of the following in the past:" and read off a list. At the end, I ask them if there is anything I didn't...

  4. a "friend" looked me up on the BON?????
    No need to be rude or passive aggressive with her. Just let her know you are uncomfortable with her looking you up and you feel as though she is overstepping your personal boundaries. She probably...

  5. What's your nursing kryptonite?
    On their own, each is not so bad, but I hate GI bleed plus ostomy. And don't get me started with feces coming out through wounds (not new ostomies, either). Urp, every time.

    I've been looking on allnurses, but all of the info is so old I'm sure some things have changed. I googled RN pay and was directed back here, LOL.

    Hi! My husband and I have the opportunity to relocate to Colorado through his company. A large part of his decision rests on whether I think I can get a job and be happy there. Currently I work in...

  13. New Grad Nurse, already feeling the burn
    First, take a deep breath. Try to be calm and assess your situation objectively in a problem solving way. You sound flustered in your post. Take the things that are bothering you one at a time and...

    I can't tell you about Colorado specifically, but I can tell you that applying before you graduate is a must. I started applying in October and graduated the following December. I had two job offers...

    If I were you, I wouldn't focus as much on making friends in nursing school. Nursing students are stressed to the max and making new friendships puts even more strain on them. Most revert to keeping...

    Breathe in. Breathe out. You got this. This situation is temporary. Soon, you will be rocking your shiny new BSN and using it to get a shiny new job that sucks much less. You can do it.

  18. People being spiteful about grades?
    Yay! Keep up the good work! I used to be super shy and wouldn't stand up for myself at all. Nursing has really helped me get past that. It's easier to build assertiveness at first when you're...

  19. Accepted Job offer this AM. Same afternoon contacted by another hospital. What to do?
    I'd go on the interview. It won't hurt anything. Even if the big hospital offers you a job, you will most likely be in your introductory period when it doesn't matter if you leave.

    I wouldn't worry so much about other people's grades. If you feel your instructor is treating you unfairly, speak to her about it. Otherwise, it sounds like you are begrudging the other students'...
