  4. Rough night, but I survived, apparently.
    Thank you so much for that. My manager was receptive, and I feel like she would be the type to ensure any response she would have to the situations would not focus the attention on me. She's pretty...

  11. Is it okay to tape record on my phone my patient's report?

  13. Should I go on an interview if I don't want the job?
    I agree with this. The interviewer will likely feel your ambivalence. If there is anything you think they could offer to make you decide to work there, go. It sounds like that's not the case, though....

    I just finished 12-week orientation on an ICU step down unit where we take 4 patients and most shifts are pretty slammed busy. This is shift 2 tonight for me and the jitters that I thought were first...

  17. JUST a nurse
    Also, as I've been in my first nursing job ever the last few months, it has truly been eye-opening to recognize that the hospital truly is held together and kept running by the nursing staff. Don't...

  18. JUST a nurse
    This really makes me so sad and angry. As far as stereotyping that I've witnessed goes, the male nurses get the "why didn't you become a doctor?" question more than the female nurses.
