  1. Give an example of a difficult decision you've made
    OP, I gather from your second post in this thread that you didn't get the response you were hoping for. I think that the topic itself is well worth discussing and in my opinion could have been an...

  2. Coworker tried converting me on my break
    I don't sense any kindness in your message, instead to me it seems like a message of fear. Why do you think that someone would hope to enter something that they are convinced doesn't exist and...

  4. Does he have schizophrenia?
    I'm not a Psychiatrist and if I was one I'd want to meet my patient in person before even considering a diagnosis. Please beware that reading diagnostic criteria for various mental illnesses or...

  5. Does he have schizophrenia?
    As previous poster said, we can't offer medical advice. Even if we were allowed though, it's not possible to diagnose based solely on someone's description of a person's behavior. Obviously you...

  6. If you can't pass the NCLEX after three attempts....LVN license only!
    That's hardly the solution. LVNs need to be safe/competent nurses, just like RNs. Perhaps it's not your intent, but your post is quite insulting to LV/PNs. Their license isn't something you award...

  7. Anti-vax nurses? Are you serious?
    That's how I interpreted her reply as well. It's deeply frightening. Even a single nurse who doesn't know how to interpret research can cause a significant amount of damage by spreading fallacious...

  8. Anti-vax nurses? Are you serious?
    I've actually read it too. The article wasn't retracted because as you put it "did not jive with healthcare propaganda". It was retracted because it contained methodological and ethical...

  9. GOD in NURSE is the Difference!
    Well, hi there OP ;) Interesting stats you've come up with. I actually didn't mention what defines a good nurse, only that I don't think it's accurate to say that one group based on faith alone, ...

  10. Homeless or otherwise Indigent Patients
    Would it feel better if the needy, demanding, unappreciative and noncompliant patient was rich and lived in a mansion? I've met a few of those... I understand that the nursing job can be...

  11. GOD in NURSE is the Difference!
    I've treated/cared for many political and religious refugees. People who've been subjected to unimaginable things because of their beliefs. Because of their beliefs they've actually had their freedom...

  12. GOD in NURSE is the Difference!
    I actually read and reply to very few posts in the Nursing and Spirituality section. This thread grabbed my attention because in was listed under "popular" posts and THE TITLE CONTAINED CAPS which...

  13. GOD in NURSE is the Difference!
    OP, what does this make me? Rubbish Nurse? Subpar Nurse? Chopped liver Nurse? It may not have been your intention, but don't you see how very insulting your posts can be to someone who doesn't...

  14. Anti-vax nurses? Are you serious?

  15. Anti-vax nurses? Are you serious?
    I think the reason that many of the responses have a markedly low pH ;) is that it's a coping mechanism. Personally, few people frustrate me as much as "anti-vaxxers". Here's why.. * No amount...

  16. I Have The Time and Other Lies
    I'm a Swedish nurse and thankfully we don't have to deal with this "script" nonsense. The patient is in the hospital because they need medical care, it's not the same as going out to your local Pizza...

  17. NCLEX- how many attempts is too many?
    I have a feeling that this is going to be a heated discussion. I do believe that there should be a limit on the number of attempts allowed. I think that three attempts should be the maximum. I...

  18. When is it delegation and when is it "Being bossy"???
    I'm a second career nurse, previously law enforcement. It's a different environment and I'm sort of accustomed to "barking" (and receiving) orders, short and sweet (well, short at least ;) ). Not...

  21. Gender Roles in the Nursing Career.
    Your question is rather vague, or perhaps all-encompassing? Are you asking if/how traditional gender roles affects a nurse's career? Or what the views are on male and female nurses? (Whose...
