  4. Fired within 90 days... advice?
    leave it off your application. its not so much about being dishonest, as it is selling yourself to employers. For instance I just wouldn't bring it up at all, but if they flat out ask you if you...

  6. Diagnostic test results.  What do you tell the patient?
    I don't tell the patient, I feel that's up to the doctors for the most part because they ran the test, and they know more of the details. However I will say something like "your K+ was low and...

  10. dumbest nurse in the industry.

  12. Will the stress of nursing be too much for me?
    in my honest opinion, I find nursing to be VERY stressful. I work on a really acute floor and it's taking a lot out of me right now. That said, I'm pretty new still... The good thing is, there...

  17. Per diem job interview, do I tell I'm pregnant?
    I'd wait til I was offered the job, then tell them before you start. There's plenty you could still do as an RN while pregnant, but at the same time you'd be safe. Lots of nurses get pregnant and...
