  1. All the way to 265!! I feel hopeless!
    I passed with 265, it was 5 years ago so I can't remember what the questions were like. Hang In There until you get the results.

  3. Would you ever ask another nurse to give your pt a suppository?
    I have to agree with everyone else. If someone was going to be turning and examining my pt and they needed a suppository I would hate to, but would prob ask them to pop it in since they'd be right...

  4. death smells like
    Coffee grounds works wonders, just put some in a cup in the corners of the room. We do that in the ER with our more fragrant pts and it works well.

  5. med/surge or pacu for a new grad
    PACU tends to take ICU and ER nurses not new grads, this is very suspicious. Pacu may seem like a cushy job, one pt at a time, but when the poop hits the fan and you need to start pressers, hang...

  6. Dating a former patient
    And I think a lot of people would be feeling different about the situation if she wasn't a psych pt. There's nothing wrong with clicking with a pt, or finding yourself attracted to someone. What you...

  8. Dating a former patient
    No one is saying that someone with psych issues doesn't deserve love, they probably need it more than anyone. But someone in the middle of a crisis should not be starting a relationship with her...

  9. Dating a former patient
    And that would be super creepy and also a violation since the only way he knew her name was from her chart. Way too many worms in the can. Not worth opening!

  10. How helpful/important is it to work as a CNA before going to nursing school?
    I think it would be very important. And not only to speed through learning ADLs once in nursing school, but more importantly to give perspective nurses a realistic idea of what nursing is. Too many...

  11. Crowd funding:  Yay or Nay?
    If you put it in the Internet it's not a private transaction but a public one, therefore open to scrutiny. At my old job there was a coworker who put a sign up in the break room saying she wasn't...

  12. Dating a former patient
    When someone is sick enough that they are an in patient at a psych facility, it is an absolute certainty that their issues are more severe than just needing a significant other. They have serious,...

  13. Dating a former patient
    I hope that is sarcasm because that is horrible advice. Not only is it unethical, a bf is not the cure for mental illness.

  14. Can not even express how greatful I would be for some input. My livelyhood depends on it.
    My old hospital had a policy where if you left for whatever reason: fired, quit, retired, etc you were listed as DNR. It's not always a death sentence. If you look on threads here so so so many...

  15. ICU especially hard on back?
    I've done trauma ICU, ortho floor and ER so here's my two cents: ICU: less walking, worst on back due to turning not just your pts every two hours but helping with all the other pts in the pod...

  16. Fix me NOW (but on my terms or I'll leave AMA)
    You think any of these people have insurance?? Not that there aren't jerks with insurance but the majority of the frequent fliers we get in the ER who act like this have no ins. That's also why the...

  17. Dating a former patient
    It would be a huge ethical breach to date her. First you were part of her healthcare team, second it was a psych facility so she is part of a vulnerable population which makes it even worse. You...

  18. IV starts in nursing schools
    We were taught in school starting second semester. We practiced on pts just like our other skills, with our instructor or nurse at our side. We were absolutely forbidden from practicing on each other.

  19. Med error and disciplinary action
    Holy crap so you can get fired for calling out sick now? That is a huge over reaction in their part! I would fight it! I'm so sorry you're dealing with it.

    Why? Why does their gender have any effect on their ability to do their job? Nursing should be a genderless role.
