  1. I am sure it's been asked
    Oh, yeah. I would definitely be open to interning. Yes, the peels I am wanting to do are the superficial. Such as the light ones that are offered with some facials at regular salon/spas.

  2. I am sure it's been asked
    Hmmmmm, if I got my aesthetician license, and didn't advertise my RN credentials, maybe. Ugh. This will probably end up being a phon cal. To both the BON and cosmotology board. It totally sucks that...

  3. I am sure it's been asked
    So what about these salons that do the superficial chem peels. I know they don't have physicians. Is it the fact that I have an RN license that now makes it need an order? It is a gray area on that,...

  4. I am sure it's been asked
    GrrlRN, I also found that. But it addresses specifically laser hair removal and micropigmentation. As far as chemical peels: would it be considered medication. If so, then who is doing these peels...

  7. Doing GREAT...In recovery, but written up today at work.
    I was going to ask why it might affect your status in IPN also. in my state, we have peer. They don't care about your job if it is non-nursing. They don't need reports or anything from them. They...

  10. Your thoughts?
    When they made me cease practice again and get a psych eval, I told them "I am pregnant and can't even afford enough food for myself.". They said "In order to get well you may have to make...

    Yeah, well, at the end of that quote is an unwritten "Unless you are on the Peer committee...". The constant living in fear of doing something "wrong" in their eyes. Answering a question "wrong"....

  12. Your thoughts?
    You will love THIS then: someone I know knew a nurse that ended up being disciplined by the board. Because s/he was once in peer, the peer records NOW became un-confidential and sent to the board. It...

  13. Your thoughts?
    As of a couple months ago, anyone who joins the Peer program in Oklahoma has a denotation online that shows they are in Peer when their license is looked up. This is something the public can see....

  14. Pyxis machine and nurses diverting meds.....
    Where I used to work, they always treated Ultram as a controlled substance and it had to be counted. Even way back in 2004 when I started there. I can see, now, where this extra precaution was a good...

  16. Pyxis machine and nurses diverting meds.....
    The Pyxis we had would not let you close a narc drawer after opening without first putting in a count. We could not simply "cancel" it. It is not helpful now, but in the future, I would advise always...

  21. Would you ever be a scab?
    Sorry, but if the choices are losing my home, and not being able to feed my son or picketing, then I guess I'd be proud to be a scab and take care of my family than strike and lose everything. Some...

  24. 5 hour wait in ER results in triple amputation for toddler
    I wasn't sure if it varied state-to-state. I never had to co-sign in California, but that was because the hospital I worked at didn't have LPNs as far as I could tell. It's amazing how the practice...

  25. 5 hour wait in ER results in triple amputation for toddler
    I thought that LPN's can't do initial assessments. Also, that RN's have to co-sign an LPN's assessment. I don't know if that varies from state to state. But in the hospital I work at, an RN does the...
