  1. Joint Commission is a Joke...
    And that, too, can be a joke. Where I used to work, we had to do yearly "competencies." These consisted of watching stuff on the computer and answering questions afterward. Being an OB nurse,...

  2. Joint Commission is a Joke...
    I believe you are correct, however, the hospital is required to have JC come in, and then also required to pay them. JC wins. And IMHO, JC is the perfect example of changes that have to be found...

  3. Joint Commission is a Joke...
    The OP said no "saline locks" in the pocket. That, to me, is different from "saline flush." However, when flushes, locks alcohol pads, and the list goes on and on, have to be locked up somewhere,...

  4. Sure to get flamed for this
    Were we in the same nursing class? LOL because that was my experience, too. I have long had the belief that if one's behavior is one that exacts or even demands respect, you are much more...

  5. Obamacare and Nursing.. what do you think?
    And then there is the very (un)cooperative Harry Reid, who just plain refuses to bring any of the GOP bills passed in the House to the Senate to even debate. Yep, there is so much cooperation with...

  6. Still don't get the BSN ADN thing...
    Speaking of "fluff" classes....ASU now offers a one-credit class for women (of course.....who seemingly fall for such silliness) if they forego shaving their underarms for a set period of time.

  7. A nurse who doesn't breastfeed
    Count me as one of them. My kids are now 42 and 37. I won't bore anybody with their accomplishments or GPA's, one of which was stellar and one of which was not. Both are accomplished adults now....

  8. 8 or 12 hour shifts (single mom)
    I did 3:50p to 12:20a 8-hour shifts when my kids were young, as a single parent. And I loved it. I found responsible teens to babysit some of the time, and then found a woman with teens of her own,...

    I graduated with an ASN in 1976 from a similar school....back when they were still called Junior Colleges. Our State Board Exam results were better than any nursing school in all of California. ...

  11. Sure to get flamed for this
    It is the norm these days to turn over every rock and pebble to find cases of bullying, racism, war on women, income inequality, etc., etc., etc. My theory is that if you turn over enough rocks...

  12. ADN Nurses Being Forced to go Back to School?
    Once all nurses have BSN's, they will be doing bedside nursing for the most part because you can't have all of them going into administration. And most likely, they aren't going to be making the...

  13. Health Care and Contraception: Did the Supreme Court Get It Right?
    The Planned Parenthood Clinic in Aurora, CO recently got an award for "surpassing" their abortion goals. I have a link and will provide it, but you can easily look it up. If PP is so Pro-Choice, I...

  14. ADN Nurses Being Forced to go Back to School?
    A couple of years ago, my sister decided to get her BSN. She'd been a diploma nurse from the early 1970's, and then became a Nurse Anesthetist, and finally decided to add the BSN. I asked her if...

  16. Health Care and Contraception: Did the Supreme Court Get It Right?
    Insurance coverages change on a fairly regular basis, and not because the employer decides to change it.....We have had several incidences, mostly relating to anti-GERD meds for the DH, where our doc...

  17. Health Care and Contraception: Did the Supreme Court Get It Right?

  18. All the Things We Carry
    I carry the memory of a 13 year old in labor. My gut told me then and still that her own father was the baby's father. During her long labor, which resulted in a c/section, he verbally abused the...

    Hmmm post got lost. Yes, I got far better rest working full time evening shift 8's that 12's would be possible if they were 12's. How could it now? After even an extended 8 hours (say 10 by the...

    I used a day shift 12 because night shift 12 is not better. In fact would be worse, because sleeping during the day would eve harder. I worked most of my career on 3-11's which I found to be the...
