  3. Things you'd LOVE to be able to tell patients, and get away with it.

  4. What are the major issues you have struggled with as a nurse?
    I believe this can apply to any place that employs RNs. For me, it is management and higher-ups that fail to understand that nursing doesn't fit into a tidy 36- or 40-hour workweek.

  9. GUM! Can you chew it on shift?
    I do chew gum at work, but only when I have to care for a patient being sick, or cleaning a stage 4 decub ulcer, cleaning up stool, or performing digital disimpaction. Why? It takes my mind off...

  10. Who is GENERALLY more of a "PAIN"?: Co-workers OR Patients?
    Thank God for this thread! My own "pick for the pain" is management. Coworkers are generally good where I work, patients can be PITAs but, like an earlier poster said, are gone within a short period...

  16. Help, I can't deal with vomit.

  22. Nurse Externs
    Being a NE is one of the best ways to prepare for nursing, IMO, without actually being an RN. It will give you insights into nursing that textbooks, clinicals, and labs just can't give you.
