  1. When is it appropriate to share faith at work?: One nurse's story
    Leslie, you might want to note 'true' Christians. Not 'just say you're a Christian'. What does 'education' have to do with being an 'uncompassionate' nurse and a nurse who sticks medication in a...

  2. When is it appropriate to share faith at work?: One nurse's story
    Stephanie, I believe windsurfer was making a point. I could not believe 'one' R.N. who comes in a room and talks about God. Most are not true Christians and will stick medication in a 'patient'...

  3. When is it appropriate to share faith at work?: One nurse's story
    Being a Christian 'R.N.' is also not allowing the devil to come in. The doctor is not always right and the nurse has to follow what the dr. says.

  4. Question about hospice patients
    Hi, I have a question about hospice care. I have a CNA and am working in home hospice (and sometimes in a facility -when needed). I am concerned with their unresponsive state (days/even hours...

  5. Failed NCLEX, need a job, can I be a CNA in CA?
    I believe if you have proof of completion of nursing school, you can take the exam. When I took mine there was an R.N. taking it and he did not know how to put on a transfer belt. Make sure you know...

  6. Question about pediatric employment
    Thank you all for your comments. I am going to try to go to a good school. I feel I am the one of the 'best' as far as caring and doing a diligent job, but I have to see about the kind of school. I...

  7. I am Afraid.  Please Pray for Me.
    BostonterriorRN, we are not talking about 'Patient's Bill of Rights', we are talking about the nurse's. I have yet to see someone 'lose it all' for the sake of the Lord. In your experience, has a...

  8. Several things are making me consider dropping nursing school
    I do not think you should quit. You do not have long to go. There has to be something in 'nursing' you like. Hema/Oncology, med-surg, BMT, NICU, etc. You do not have to stay a nurse.

  9. Question about pediatric employment
    Hi, I wanted to know if anyone knows if hiring supervisors specifically at a children's hospital/unit look at the school the student went to (being an R.N.)? There are many programs and some are...

  10. I am Afraid.  Please Pray for Me.
    I do not believe it is the 'nurse's' responsibility to 'pray' with the patient. It depends on the relationship she/he has with the patient. The hospital might not be fond of nurses praying with...

  11. I flunked out of clinical today..
    Maybe you should tell her (or in your letter) that you were 'nervous' about not having your watch. Apologize. Let her/them know that you did not know how to react. Let them also know that your...

  13. Question about R.N
    umcRN, I was not upset, I responded to 'how small' the bed appeared (it was Christmas time). Some nurses are 'protective' of thier patients. But if one gossips/surfs internet for all to see/texts in...

  14. Question about R.N
    Ashley, It has been my experience that if you 'show a supervisor' you care - in this case R.N.'s, you should be careful. So you did say 'show the staff that you care about the patients..you will...

    It seems like you will do fine on BP. Do not rely on the handbook, memorize the steps. Only my advice. Good luck!

  18. Patient Fall
    I would look for another place to work. A nurse that is saying something that you did not do and she did not check on? Bad news. She will cover her behind. Report her anonomously.

    I am sorry this happened. Did you sign the 'free of liability' papers before you started work? There is a risk with working with psychiatric patients.

  23. CNA's and the board
    CNA is an important position, but I do not think that states should go so far as to do 'testing' at a specific site. Think it is better if the CNA instructor does it. Only my opinion.
