  2. Losing our Unit Manager
    I was in a similar situation about a year ago. After our director resigned it was downhill from there. I couldn't wait it out because she was a great advocate for the staff and morale was shot. I...

  3. Is it me, or is this job too much?
    Boy do I feel for you. I did that job for 6 months. I had 60!! residents in a skilled unit (but 30 were long term residents). It was pure hell. I'll spare you the details, but I think if you are...

  7. Shoe Support
    New Balance are the best. Like most of you I'm sure you don't sit much. I work in a non-stop ER and am lucky to get to pee. I have tried Dansko's (got heel spurs), Birkies are okay but not made...

  12. First semester...The hardest??
    I think all of the above is true but I think the first semester is geared toward "weeding out" those who probably aren't cut out for nursing in the first place. After surviving the 1st semester I...

  15. lpn's in ER
    fab4fan - couldn't agree with you more. We had LPN's in our Er and it's not just about pushing a med or two. An RN has the ultimate responsibility over the care a patient receives. As you all know...

    I have to agree with massEDgirl. I hate to rain on anyone's parade but a busy trauma center is stressful. I think you need to start out with a bit of med/surg experience. It's not that it isn't...
