  1. Requiring a BSN degree for an ADN scope of practice
    I wasn't trying to attack you. You seemed puzzled as to why so many took offense to your original post. I don't believe you set out to offend anyone but, clearly, you rubbed some the wrong way. My...

  2. Requiring a BSN degree for an ADN scope of practice
    I think what you are asking is why are there different educational pathways leading to the same licensure. That's a good question. But you could have picked a less provacative way to frame it. And...

  3. Nurses with worse spelling than mine are laughable.
    I just googled 'finna', and apparently it is indeed a contraction of sorts of the phrase "fixing to" do something. I was actually born in canada but spent most of my childhood in Detroit. I live...

  5. Nurses with worse spelling than mine are laughable.
    Finna means "going to". I'm finna go to bed. I'm finna make dinner. Etc. it looks really weird written out, but it sounds natural enough when spoken.

  6. chiropractor employee taking blood pressures
    I guess that's how I would interpret it, too. I doubt it's ever enforced. So, if I am to call myself a nurse in Wisconsin, I must specify each time that I am a practical nurse? If I say "nurse" by...

  7. Nurses with worse spelling than mine are laughable.
    I'm beginning to get a complex here. I hear "finna" all the time, everyday. Maybe not in professional settings, but in everyday speech, all the time. I'll even admit to using it myself. I know...

  8. Nurses with worse spelling than mine are laughable.
    I don't know, to my ears, "whom" sounds..... unnatural. Affected. Maybe it's a regional thing? Or a class thing? "Who are you talking to?" sounds way more natural than "To whom are you talking?"....

    It is disuse that makes certain words archaic. When is the last time you heard anyone utter the phrase "To whom does this belong"?

  11. Nurses with worse spelling than mine are laughable.
    I think it's high time for the word "whom" to be put out to pasture. It needs to go on the list of officially archaic English words.

  14. LTC has changed-How do you give out 5pm meds now?
    "No meds in the dinning room" is sheer stupidity. It is the most natural time/place to take them. Stupid rules are meant to be broken.

  15. The real reason your failing in school
    If anything, I would say all the nurses being pumped out of schools left and right is what keeps RN wages down. When you compare the amount of responsibility RNs assume versus what they are paid, you...

  17. Of Nursing, Nudity and Public Perception
    Do you mean you didn't mean to "like" it? If so, there's actually a little "unlike" button where the like used to be.

  18. Of Nursing, Nudity and Public Perception
    Yeah sure, its within the realm of possibility. Almost anything is possible. To be honest, I question if your perception of the public image of nursing is accurate. This isn't 1952. Nobody views...

  19. Of Nursing, Nudity and Public Perception
    So how does it hurt our image if some nurses choose to supplement their income by stripping, posing nude, whatever? You make it sound like its endemic or something, when I've never heard of any...

    I fail to see what's "morally" wrong with either of these statements. Many patients who find themselves acutely ill are not used to strangers seeing them naked or providing personal care. Comments...

  21. Does every hospital or skilled nursing facility deal with a lot of drama and tension
    Let's be honest, we all know that there's a double standard for certain things when it comes to day vs. night shift. If day shift leaves unfinished work for nights, it's because they had a busy...

    They also lived for many, many generations without electricity, central heating or running water. For a facility not to have AC in a climate where temps reach 90-100 degrees is unacceptable and...

    My personal experience confirms this. Where I live, the VA is well known for hiring LPNs and ADNs.

  25. Post-interview thank you notes - do you or don't you?
    But... why? If you open the gift in front of them, It stands to reason you also said something like "oh cool, thanks so much!" You're supposed to send a letter on top of that?
