  1. An Unapologetic Reasoning On Why You Don't Want To Be A Nurse.
    It's my opinion that some who read allnurses are just stubborn enough to need to prove that they know better, that they can do exactly what nurses with experience are advising against, that somehow...

  2. An Unapologetic Reasoning On Why You Don't Want To Be A Nurse.
    While I agree with you that nursing has many facets and there are many areas to choose from, in reality, it isn't always that easy to change as it may once have been. For example, it took over one...

  3. An Unapologetic Reasoning On Why You Don't Want To Be A Nurse.
    I'm pretty sure that we all know this, but since this is a nursing forum and most of the members are nurses, it seems pretty relevant to apply this to nursing.

  4. An Unapologetic Reasoning On Why You Don't Want To Be A Nurse.
    I could have written this about myself. There aren't many days that go by when I'm at work and think to myself that my family would be surprised to see how I act and treat my patients because I'm...

  5. Indian graduate in Australia wants to come to USA
    I have no experience with this whatsoever. But logically speaking, in your position, I would seek advice from professionals who deal with immigration, such as an attorney.

  6. Um... Can you hit before you get hit?
    No one said or even implied that ED nurses are the only ones to deal with violence in the workplace.

  7. Um... Can you hit before you get hit?
    And although not exactly on topic, allow me to take this opportunity to point that this is the type of situation where you might have to defend yourself in court and having your own liability...

  8. Um... Can you hit before you get hit?
    OP, your state may allow you to file criminal charges against a patient but some hospitals "discourage" staff from doing so by "threatening" the job of those who attempt it. The threats may be...

  9. Malpractice Insurance
    I totally agree with Hancock. The only thing I might differ on is cost of insurance. I work in the ER and pay just over $100/yr, a drop in the bucket compared to defending a lawsuit.

  10. Malpractice Insurance
    Any hospital that takes that attitude is not going to be on your side anyway. Far better to have your own insurance with your own attorney to defend you.

  11. Doctor insists I use expired Dilaudid on patients
    I'm not sure that waiting to report the missing narcs is the best course of action. There's bound to be questions about why you waited. Please get the advice of an attorney on this before it gets any...

  12. One Strategy To Land a Nursing Job: The End Around
    It's obvious that some here still have on the rose colored glasses of a new grad. It WAS specified, more than once, that not every strategy will work for every area, but if nurses with many years of...

  13. Doctor insists I use expired Dilaudid on patients

  15. One Strategy To Land a Nursing Job: The End Around
    Peds, NICU and newborn/maternity areas are certainly places that would have tighter security where the OP's strategy wouldn't work. What I like most about this post is that you didn't just post why...

  16. One Strategy To Land a Nursing Job: The End Around
    I don't understand some of the negativity toward the OP's information. It's a GOOD strategy. No one said it is guaranteed to work 100% of the time, and yes, you might irritate some NMs. But no one...

  17. one that people here don't talk about: making more financially

  19. Well.. I guess I am going to be canned
    While it is true that housekeepers are required to know CPR, it's also true that housekeepers do not give day-to-day patient care. I don't believe it is an accurate assessment of a housekeeper's...

  20. Well.. I guess I am going to be canned
    The first part of this I agree with, but nobody that I can think of, knowing that coffee is supposed to be hot, would take a big enough drink to burn their esophagus without testing it first.

  21. Did anyone do 12 inches to shoulder/over head lift for pre employment physical?
    Even though it may be possible, I don't understand the necessity of demonstrating that you can lift that much weight overhead. I can't imagine any job in the hospital where you would need to lift...

  25. Measles, Mumps, Rubella... Forgotten but NOT Gone
