  2. how do nurses wear nail polish?
    Nurses shouldn't wear nail polish? Really? I know artificail nails are an infection risk, but nail polish? I guess I've never seen these studies... I wear nail polish. And tend to change it every...

  4. Avoid "Karing with Kindess" CNA program
    It's just a little unnerving to me. I just think back to when I took the NCELX... there was a lot of material that I learned/studied that wasn't ever covered during the exam, but as a nurse you're...

  5. should I still become a nurse even though I hate science and I'm bad at it?
    Nursing = science. If you really, really hate it, I would look for a different career path. While nursing is a lot of technical skills, a nurse has to know the reasoning behind many of those...

  7. Help, am I overreacting or is this normal???
    Yes, it has happened at the hospital I work as well. I have been pulled to be a CNA in a 1:1 for my shift... no big deal, RN pay for NA 1:1 is pretty great. I'd say you're overreacting, IMHO.

  9. Bad preceptorship assignment
    I had quoted in bold the part that was a little offensive (which I do realize was too sensitive on my part... my apologies). I do understand that you don't get the same clinical experience in LTC as...

  10. specialty with lowest turnover rate?
    I've heard that L&D nurses stay put. I haven't seen a job posting for an L&D nurse since I began looking for nursing jobs!

  11. Frustrated
    I had a very hard time in A&P. Acutally, I had to take both A&P I and A&P II twice as I got C+'s the first time around for both classes. Don't worry, you can do it, and you can still be a great nurse...

  12. Bad preceptorship assignment
    What?! As someone who worked in a nursing home for 3 years before landing a job in a hospital, I find this a little offensive. Nursing homes provide you with the opportunity to develop time...

  13. Bad preceptorship assignment
    Just my 2 cents... This actually is a pretty good reflection of the job market out there right now. You will probably not get your first choices in jobs. Many new grads are having to take jobs in...

  14. Cellphones at work
    I agree that for emergencies, one can always call the facility so a cell phone is not necessary to have by your side at all times. However, I will say that my smartphone has come in handy at work...

  15. Feeling incompetent
    I agree with the previous post. Read to get a basic knowledge of the material as there's no way you're going to learn by strictly reading alone. Then, begin working through an NCLEX review book for...

  16. Newgrad nervous about nightshift..
    I would try talking to your nurse manager about your sleep issues. She may be able to work with you. I think it's a valid concern of yours and worth asking if there's a way to work around it without...

    Straight nights. Flipping is brutal. And nights is pretty fantastic :) Although, I've never been one who liked day shifts anyway. Straight nights is easier on the body than trying to flip between...

    Definitely not ortho. Postop, many, many, many pts will vomit. At least, that's how it is on my floor. I used to be very afraid of vomit, but I'm ok with it now that I've been on ortho for 9 months...
