  10. CNA before nursing
    All of the nursing schools in my area do require you to have your CNA before you get accepted. I worked as one for many years before I became an RN & I feel it gave me an advantage over the others in...

  11. Do RT's ever help you with bedside nursing?
    The ones I work with do. Almost all ancillary staff will help us out if it's within their scope of practice. Just this morning while I was passing my morning meds, a phlebotomist asked me if it was...

  12. When patients request NOT to have you as their nurse...
    I'm kind of feeling bad about this. I work on a Medical Unit at my hospital and one night last week, I found out a patient I had the previous night requested that I not be his nurse again that night....

  16. Interesting or Different Anatomy:What have you encountered?
    One night, I was having a problem inserting a Foley on a female patient. For the life of me, I could not find her urethra! After many of us tried, we called the nursing supervisor. To our surprise,...

  17. Nurses dressing up for Halloween
    Our hospital encourages costumes for Halloween. I just wear themed scrubs though. I think it's too hard to do your job effectively wearing a full costume. Years ago, when I worked at an LTC, one...

    ...send family members a sympathy card when their loved one has passed away? I had a very young patient last night who was very ill. Over the entire shift, I spent most of my time in that room...

  20. Why??? Sleep interrupted nocturia post 12hr shift...
    Maybe gatorade isn't a good choice to drink at work. I gave up soda a few months ago and I don't like to drink plain water. I need something with flavor. You do make a valid point tho. :)

    Why is it that I can work an entire 12.5 hr night shift, not stop to pee ONCE, and then when I try to sleep during day, I wake up at least 3 times to pee? Why can't I just come home and pee...
