  1. I Lost All Respect For A Colleague Today
    It's not so much lying as building a straw man. It's easy to win an argument when you fabricated the other side's position. Easy trap to fall into, especially when you're emotionally invested in...

  3. Which RN-BSN programs can be finished in 1 year?
    My gpa in nursing school was a 3.6, which I think is competitive enough for my plans - but I was hoping to bring that UP in my bsn, not down, I guess. Maybe I'm overthinking it.

  4. Which RN-BSN programs can be finished in 1 year?
    I really want to do wgu but I can't get over the paranoia that it'll hurt my chances for grad school someday. Can't shake it.

  5. Should high absenteeism be cause to be fired?
    Most white collar professions don't deal with the staffing considerations that hospitals do. My brother works in oil and gas and if he doesn't go into work he just catches up on his work when he...

  6. Don't Get Thrown Under the Bus
    Keep your chin up. You never know what kind of toxic environment you're heading off to. A lot of miserable places attract miserable people and they stay forever in misery. So let them at it and go on...

  8. I Lost All Respect For A Colleague Today
    I heard they were having sex at the nurses station with a crowd of patients surrounding them and cheering them on while they burned effigies of the Dr's pregnant wife. Pass it on.

  9. Things I wish I could tell my patients
    It's not unethical. Therapeutic communication is about benefiting the patient, and talking about yourself can be beneficial to the patient in certain situations. A lot of my patients are looking...

  10. Should high absenteeism be cause to be fired?
    We have a point system. You're allowed a certain number of points per 6 months (the number we're given seems fair to me) and disciplinary action follows if you exceed that number. If you call...

  11. Highest possible pay for ADN/RN
    My mom made six figures a year as nurse straight out of the gate in Texas. It's how she supported us as a single mother and paid for our college. She worked 2 jobs 6 nights a week, almost every...

  12. Why nurses eat their young????
    I experienced it as well, but like you, I think this was just a nasty person in general who would have been a nasty pharmacist, accountant, or stripper.

  14. Pay for parking?
    I don't pay for parking, thanks to working in the suburbs. Were I to work in the city, parking would run me hundreds of dollars a month.

  15. What's your Myers-Briggs personality type?
    Traditionally, INTJs aren't very socially adept, thanks to their combination of traits. I think as a society we tend to try to force other traits on our kiddos.

  16. Ever work with people who talk about church all the time?
    This is a discussion forum. The intent is (usually) to put one's opinion out there and (theoretically) have a discussion about it. I'm so much in the psych bubble right now that if didn't even...

  17. Ever work with people who talk about church all the time?
    It didn't necessarily say that religion causes schizophrenia. It said it can be a trigger - meaning the person already has schizophrenia , which I see as 100% plausible if the person is the...

  20. Mental Health vs. Staff Safety (Security)
    Every nurse should be CPI/MANDT trained, especially in psych and the ER. Every single nurse. But still...that only helps so much. It's a risk. I actually feel safer in my psychiatric unit than I...

  22. Doing group work is annoying?
    They do it to teach you life lessons. They know it sucks and they know it causes drama, but the theory is that it'll prepare you for collaboration and difficulties in the workplace. Or something.

  23. Volunteering at a Pregnancy Center
    Hmmm. Well where I'm from, ALL the pregnancy centers other than PP are pro-life. I don't think I'd volunteer there. I'm happy places like they exist and I believe they do some great work, but...
