  1. Nurses being forced to go back to school
    It is a larger symptom of the coercive unprofessional way nurses are treated. Just more evidence of the same if you ask me! Both actions reveal the same mentality of management toward nurses! I'm...

  2. CEO's/Hosp.'s making millions off of our work:(
    I guess it would take someone who didn't need their job and could afford to lose it. It's true many times nurses are illegally fired during the initiation process of getting a union in a facility. ...

  4. An RN who has a BS vs a BSN does it really matter?
    You could do an ADN and then do an online RN to MSN program or look for a direct entry MSN if you plan is management and not bedside. As far as hospitals they would consider you an ADN, although...

  5. New Nurse, what did I get myself into...
    Ask for another preceptor. I'm surprised they would have her precept if the last new grad quit over her treatment. Also I would think they would have given you an inservice on the computer charting...

  6. Nurse, Madonna, and waitress??
    As for rude patients or families these are the minority although sometimes it doesn't feel like that when you are dealing with them! Truly most patients and families are polite and appreciative to...

  7. Nurse, Madonna, and waitress??
    I don't advertise I'm a nurse because that will usually lead to people asking for medical advice and telling me about all their health woes. And if they know where I work I might hear about the...

  9. Nurses being forced to go back to school
    This coercive behavior by management like the flu vaccine mandation is one of the many reasons I don't recommend nursing to others! Who needs this kind of rude, coercive treatment where a person's...

    Wow! Funny and kooky! Energy fields, very sci fi! Sounds entertaining at the very least! Can honestly say I never heard of this version of nursing theory before. Did it talk about creative...

    You guys are scaring me! I think everyone needs more sleep as while this is funny, it could also become dangerous and lead to an accident or injury! I've had CNA's tell me they only slept two hours...

    We are required to get vitals which invariably leads to a potty patrol, while the CNA's wait for a call light. It is ridiculous because the patients don't put on their light, they just tell the...

    Problem is the CNA gives you attitude for not doing it yourself and on top of that takes their sweet time going to help the patient! Most of the times when I request help they very leisurely get...

  16. Should high absenteeism be cause to be fired?
    If you have a chronic illness you would be smart to get FMLA to cover yourself. There is intermittent which covers people who have frequent call offs. I think it is harder to get staff coverage for...

  17. Highest possible pay for ADN/RN
    But when starter homes there are $500,000 to 750,000 plus, the wages still don't go very far. The median national salary for a nurse is $65,000 and that is for experienced nurses. Sure you can make...

  21. Should high absenteeism be cause to be fired?
    I don't think too many places have sick days anymore unless you are union perhaps. Otherwise it is now PTO. Even when we did have sick pay we couldn't cash it out on retirement. It was use it or...

    I only know of online programs that offer RN to MSN. These don't seem to be very common. Most colleges make you get your BSN first and then an MSN. If you do a RN to MSN you pay grad tuition from...
