  2. colleague does not want to take day off
    Everyone is jumping all over OP (typical), but the truth is that yes, she could be manic. She could be on drugs. Mental illness and addiction is a lot more prevalent than we think. Maybe she's sober...

  5. Patients wants a back rub
    I couldn't rub a patient's back. No way, no how. The only person's back I'll rub is my husband's. If that makes me a bad nurse, so be it. On my BMT unit, you weren't allowed to touch ANYONE,...

  7. Nurses who can't give out narcotics
    Maybe y'all should head over to the recovery forum to see how difficult it is for nurses with restrictions to find a job ANYWHERE. They take whatever they can get. They don't want to burden anyone,...

  8. AWD vehicle for nurses
    Isn't this whole discussion a bit premature? You have to get in to nursing school first, then graduate, then get a job. It seems to me you're several steps ahead of yourself. I would focus on school...

  10. Cancer and depression?
    I don't know that anything has been "proven" to help depression, except maybe antidepressants. When people have cancer, depression is expected; its situational. I'm really not sure exactly what...

    My husband is a longtime AA member, and he is also dual addicted. He introduces himself "my name is Joe and I'm an alcoholic and drug addict." As far as I know, that has worked for him. AA requires...

  13. Help! Court Date Conflicts With New Job
    Thanks for the input. Here's the thing: it's a mail ticket, meaning they sent me a picture of my car that was taken by a camera on the stop arm. (I'm convinced it took the picture after the arm was...

    No advice, but I'm so sorry that happened to you! I've heard hair testing is the most accurate, but I don't have any data to back that up. I hope it works out for you.

  17. The difference between ADNs and BSNs
    In my ADN program, I learned how to be a nurse. In my BSN program, I wrote papers. The benefit of the BSN for me has been that now I get an interview for pretty much every job I apply for, whereas...

  20. CDC rec to counsel all males about benefits of circumcision
    Red, I'm sorry, but your Galatians quote is taken quite out of context and can't be used as an anti-circumcision argument. Paul is using circumcision as an example to teach the church members that...

  24. Are handguns allowed at work?
    Yes, exactly. If you have crack cocaine in your purse, that's also none of my business. Or pot, porn magazines, whatever. Your purse, your business. Don't see how I could "notice" a gun in your purse...
