  2. Dropping Magnet

  3. Local hospital now says "BSN or MSN preferred" for all bedside positions?!
    I have my MSN-Ed and I am returning to the bedside. While I plan to move on to new graduate education, my expertise will be beneficial to not only my patients, but to my floor as well. Now I...

  4. Sexism in nursing
    No matter your gender, being a minority (male in a female dominated workplace), or station in life, NO ONE deserves to be made uncomfortable at work. Report the secretary and call out the others. ...

  6. Have you blanked in an interview??
    I haven't blanked on a knowledge question, but I did completely lock up in an educator interview with HR last year. She asked me what parts of my MSN were specific to teaching people. Because our...

  9. Question for night-shift and/or weekend nurses
    When I was on nights a few years back our NM came in around 6:30 to check in with us, so I felt very connected to her. My joke however was that I didn't know who the CNO was until around year three!

  10. Clinical Experience on an Experienced RN Resume?
    I agree with everything HouTX said, and in addition when I breezed the post I thought you had worked all those different JOBS, which looked flaky to me. Trust me HR breezes just as fast, in fact...

  13. Weird Slim Jim/Murse Commercial
    I guess I thought it was kinda funny. The "murse" thing was unnecessary in my opinion. They could have left that out and not sacrificed anything in the way of humor.

  16. Dropping Magnet
    I worked beside, I advocate for the nursing population, and I got my MSN so I could advocate MORE for nurses. I think the issue most RNs have with MSN/NP etc etc is that they don't have much, if...

  17. Would you take the higher or lower stress job?
    The laser clinic sounds mind-numbingly boring to me. However, I just think about my practicum rotation in a neuro clinic where I sat and read magazines more than I had patient contact.

    I worked in a wonderful Magnet hospital. While there were problems, as with all systems, I don't believe anyone considered Magnet to be something worth "dropping". Moving into 5th designation this...

    The palliative care consult order is not foreign, but I do believe that has changed in a lot of places recently. Two years ago when I was still bedside you didn't need an order. Recently during my...

  21. Electronic charting vs. Hourly Rounding vs. Bedside Charting
    Less opportunity for errors and incongruence in charting if you write it down while it is fresh. Also getting it done right away means more time for other tasks and less time staying after to chart.

  23. The way we ask for someone's pain level?
