  1. Called into the office, told I'm a slob.
    No offense to anyone in their 50's (we are all heading that way, after all) but I'm 35. I think of wearing dowdy, stuffy black pantsuits or pants at all (I like dresses) or even black business skirts...

  2. Called into the office, told I'm a slob.
    I don't like flats, they make me look even frumpier. I've been told I'm "all boobs" so there will be no getting around that. I did find a large enough bra that supports me well and makes me look...

  3. Called into the office, told I'm a slob.

    As I read this a mischievious grin spread across the face of my alter-ego. Bad! Bad! Bad! Smack! Smack! Smack! I think it will be a no go once it gets to the administrator for approval. I...

  8. "Why don't you just be a doctor?"
    Becoming a doctor is 100x more difficult than becoming a nurse, which is why I'm a nurse and not a doctor, but that still shouldn't mean that a nurse's job is somehow less important. I'm proud to be...

  13. My proposed solution to being bullied, will it backfire on me?
    I don't know who read I accused a whole unit of people bullying me and where, but that has not happened...must be some misunderstanding. To (attempt to) make a long story short, this is a pattern...

  14. My proposed solution to being bullied, will it backfire on me?
    Right now, I'd rather be right. I have more to lose than my job. My child is in a wonderful daycare and any other job I would find would make me have to uproot everything, including my seniority. ...

  16. Can you run your own clinic as an Adult/Gero NP?
