  6. I wish they had to stay and watch the chaos
    I suggested to my one-up that our hospital's dc med list is confusing and buried in the dc instructions and couldn't this be improved? She said that there was a committee that had worked hard on it...

    You are idealistic, that can be a good thing, but it can lead to terrible burn out when what should be is so very far removed from what is and systems are so complex. I recommend looking at the...

  11. Nursing diagnosis-- what would help?
    The two books I have are the NANDA-I 2012-2014 and "Handbook of Nursing Diagnosis" (Carpenito-Moyet, 2010). The official NANDA book is only listed by nursing diagnosis, whereas the...

  12. Nursing diagnosis-- what would help?
    Could we just forget that "alteration in energy fields" was an approved NANDA diagnosis? I also agree with the silo comment. This newest version does sound like an improvement over previous...

  13. Graduated with high honors - is there any point in saying so on my resume?
    I can think of no good reason to leave an honor like that off your resume. The hiring process is really about making yourself look good.

  16. I wish they had to stay and watch the chaos
    That is a fabulous idea. We had dedicated admit nurses at various times in my working history. It worked out great. I can see there are some people (long-time patients, for sure) that the staff...

  17. Content of entry level MSN Letters of Rec.

    We got new more appropriate cuffs for the larger sized people, including the "cone shaped" ones for people whose arms are not a perfect tube shape. It helps but not enough. I like the idea of doing...

  19. Why do you think nurses leave the profession?
    I moved to an outpatient position. Still "patient-facing" and very involved in patients' care. Just not lifting, boosting, pushing, pulling, and otherwise breaking myself physically. Transitioning...
