    Sallyrnrrt and RNIBCLC - we've always been a self-designated member group. So far nobody has erred in their decision . . .and nobody has been kicked out for not being crusty enough. Welcome! ...

  5. bully
    I think we'd have to know a little more about the suspect (if you have any ideas in that regard). Sometimes a juvenile prank can be called bullying as it was in a case here in my state involving...

    I've been a nurse since before the Bicentennial (but not too much before :-)), before C. Everett Koop was Surgeon General and before Captain Eo arrived at Disneyland!

  7. Think Twice Before Becoming a "NURSE"

  10. Sure to Get Flamed for This
    I don't know where the saying "nurses eat their young" came from, and I was a nurse for over 10 years before I heard it, thankfully. I think I was spared a lot of angst by not having a hook to hang...

  11. Of Nursing, Nudity and Public Perception

  14. No Good Deed Goes Unpunished
    Take a breather. I'd say most of us have done this for one reason or another. The perspective change is healthy. I for one hope you don't lock the door and throw away the key.

    This is one of those questions for which I've never found an answer, and I have tried! Many times we'll have parallel threads, one like this and one from someone who worked as a CNA while in nursing...

  18. No Good Deed Goes Unpunished
    The pile-ons make me cringe most of the time. When they don't it's usually a long ordeal of the old "why don't you--- yes, but" game involving a member who really never wanted advice in the first...

    Having been through it myself I can tell you that an LVN program is not slower or easier than an ADN program. Sometimes they are faster and more intensely filled with a shorter length of time. I...
