    And if you can leave with a good reference, as opposed to a not so good reference--what is a few months. 18 months would be in March--which is close to the start of the new year. Use the time to...

  6. I Lost All Respect For A Colleague Today
    I don't think anyone is saying "YES, oh YES, affairs are wonderful things!! Let's all get one!!" What is being said (by me) is that what they are or are not doing is none of any co-workers concern. ...

    I have been at this a long time. And I have seen totally innocent actions of young nurses being morphed into gossip that is crushing to careers. We have seen many, many nurses on this site come...

  12. Should high absenteeism be cause to be fired?
    That is so interesting that you say that. Any number of evaluations of late seem to have a "you call out too much" undertone to them. Or rather "you do not have a bunch of sick time left". Sick...

    Huge PR/Marketing scam. Money that could be spent on better staff ratios. A way to get unions out of the way, give illusions that nurses are "governing themselves" when in fact managment governs...

    We really don't KNOW they are cheaters, nor liars. There's a great deal of assumption, but that is about all it is--assumptions. To have this affect the fact that you may have to precept the nurse...
