  1. Sure to Get Flamed for This
    This whole thread nauseates me. The display of hostility, inflammatory language, and judgmentalism is shocking. I'm done.

  2. Sure to Get Flamed for This
    For the OP. I just received an emailed notice from AACN. They're hosting a webinar about bullying at work. You still think people just need to "grow up," that there's no systemic problem here? 15036

  3. Sure to Get Flamed for This
    FlyingScot good for you, it looks like you have the right attitude. It seems to me that there are scores of nursing students and new grads who are conscientious and want to learn as much as they can...

    What inspired you to write that? I would bet you're not a parent. Here's my perspective. I came to nursing as a second career. Formerly I was an attorney (I still have my license and am looking...

  5. Nurses are Not Doctors
    I couldn't agree more. Let's take another example from my own background as a lawyer with 11 years of experience. There are many areas where paralegals perform very much like lawyers, divorce for...

  6. Nurses are Not Doctors
    How on Earth can you argue that a PA's education is "rigorous" compared to an NP? That's just silly. PAs get 2 years post bachelor's degree. An NP, by contrast has a nursing degree and at least a...

  8. Does your hospital or facility badge include your credentials?
    It's an interesting pamphlet. But it's also funny that AACN doesn't even follow its own rule. I just took the PCCN and went through a question book written by them. In the book, they cite their...

  9. Does your hospital or facility badge include your credentials?
    Wrong according to who? Every time I see a nurse cite his/her credentials in articles, etc., it's RN first, then degree, then certifications. I didn't know there was a "rule" on the issue. Can you...

  10. An Unapologetic Reasoning On Why You Don't Want To Be A Nurse.
    Hey Mr. Midwife! Interesting post. Being a male nurse myself and knowing how touchy things got during my maternity rotation - gender issues - I'd personally be very interested to hear how you have...

  12. Why is this question always asked?
    You've found an adherent in AmyRN303, maybe. I actually think her example is quite different than the point you're making. Rather than me not "getting it," it appears it is you who don't "get it,"...

  14. Why is this question always asked?

  15. Nurses are Not Doctors
    Latecomer here, but I saw this post and was so infuriated I have to weigh in. This article presents a poorly justified rationale to cover up fear. Maybe nurses aren't doctors, but who says primary...

    Be careful with the notion you can take the CCRN without critical care experience. See here http://www.aacn.org/wd/certifications/docs/ccrnorpccnexamflyer.pdf

  17. Does your hospital or facility badge include your credentials?
    Our facility shows credentials, such as BSN, CCRN, etc. I think it is appropriate to list these credentials for patients, but also for colleagues, to read. I just obtained my PCCN and I'm proud of...
