  1. What to do: ED physician brought dog to work
    What does that mean? This is a pet-loving country; it's our culture, in a way. What is it you want to tell people? I don't understand your comment.

  2. Word crimes! (No txtng)
    I love this, but did anyone else pick up that he said "Here's some..."? This is a very funny and educational song. It reminds me of something "Schoolhouse Rock" would do. I do wish he would have...

  4. What are the REAL limitations between an RN AND a LPN?
    I'm not clear on what it is you're really asking. Work isn't measured by quantity. Money is important, and I can see that alone being a factor. There are many opportunities that are closed to...

  5. HELLP!!:(
    You would be easily identified in this thread if your boss or any of your co-workers reads it. I would consider asking to have it deleted. You've pretty much gotten the advice you needed. Take...

  6. Texting While Working
    New employee, texting throughout orientation, stating to me she'd ben fired from two jobs (and she was a new nurse, too). She was bemoaning how she was treated by a doc at her previous job, going on...

  9. Is Bedside Nursing Really for me?

  11. Bullying - What is it?
    ​@Karou: Thank you for a very thoughtful, well-worded post. I fear you advice will go unheeded, but I appreciate what you wrote. For someone who is a relatively new nurse, you have a level of...

  12. Stop the (Deskilling) Merry-Go-Round, I Want to Get OFF!
    I totally agree with you, and I too think it's ironic that a specialty certification requires 150 questions, but a licensing exam, the test that gets your foot in the door to the profession to begin...

  15. Am I Being Bullied?
    This, a thousand times over. I am the same way; when someone is overly familiar with me, peppers me with personal questions, and constantly tries to insert herself into conversations she wasn't...

  16. Am I Being Bullied?
    First of all, the OP is a student nurse, not a new hire being oriented to the unit. I'm kind of amazed at the people who feel it's the nurse's responsibility to be a Chatty Cathy for this student,...

  17. Sure to get flamed for this
    Let me connect the dots for you, then. Someone with your scorched earth opinion of ADNs has no business precepting anyone. Certainly not ADNs, since you can't seem to contain your contempt for them,...

  20. Am I Being Bullied?
    ​I think you may be looking at this the wrong way. You're not there to form relationships. You're there to learn how to be a nurse. Maybe if you dial down the oversharing and over-familiarity, you...

  21. Am I Being Bullied?
    I'm a reserved person, although I'm very friendly with the people I know. Precepting can be exhausting, then to have someone whom you don't know try to constantly make small talk with you...no, I...

  22. Sure to get flamed for this
    I remember when I was a student and an OB-GYN attending came in to the nurse's station looking for a place to chart. I got up right away (which is what we were taught to do), and he said, "No, no,...

  23. Sure to get flamed for this
    Nurses may do teaching as part of their job, but that doesn't mean every nurse is suited to be a preceptor. It's far and away a different thing to do patient teaching and precept a new nurse. It's...

    I believe Ruby has explained ad infinitum that a big part of the turnover on her unit is due to people jumping ship to go to school to be a CRNA. I think it's unfair for people to lay the blame...

  25. accessing a port for just one blood draw
    I almost always put EMLA on my port before I get labs/get it flushed. One stick from someone who is not a good sticker, and you learn really fast to get that site numbed up.
