  1. The Controversy: Mandatory Flu Vaccines
    1)__ Do you take the flu vaccine yearly? If you do not, what is the reason you do not participate (if you don’t mind answering this question)? Yes. It is enforced and against my will. 2)__ Does...

  2. You are NOT allergic to...
    Thank you for that info. It makes interesting reading. That's the whole point of research...to find links between cause and effect. I don't think we've reached a point where we can definitively say...

  3. You are NOT allergic to...
    It's really not crap. The lab is a reputable one in Texas, but perhaps it was a poor choice of quote as it's not from a research paper, but the point I was trying to make is that there is a lot of...

  4. Fighting to Keep My RN License
    Sue him and order a cease and desist. Get serious. The only way to deal with a bully is to bully back. Maybe his wife needs to know a few facts about him. Perhaps even the suggestion of that might...

  6. Not excited about nursing--feels like a bad joke
    Here's how I dealt with it, being a 23 year veteran. Find an area of nursing that interests you, or even excites you. For me that was ICU and now it's being an NP. Do it well. I mean, really excel at...

  7. Cra Cra co-workers
    I work with someone who's completely crazy. She's got a very loud and colorful personality but cannot be trusted with the slightest thing because the moment you tell her anything it's all around the...

  8. You are NOT allergic to...
    You're really going to make me do your research for you? Dismissing something because it doesn't match your objective isn't applying nursing process. In a situation like this, where results are...

    Wasn't rude, didn't name call. Was just calling out inaccuracies. Best way to avoid that is to make informed statements.

    This just isn't true. Many people have gluten intolerance as opposed to Celiac Disease that make them very ill. I know...I'm one of them and I assure you it's not because I'm trying to be "trendy". I...

    Me either. I don't agree with their religious stance and wouldn't feel comfortable contributing money to it.

  14. You are NOT allergic to...
    So a patient states an allergy, real or imagined....so what? How does it hurt you? So you decide that it's not a real allergy and don't put it on the medical record and then the patient actually does...

  17. Mobilizing while on crrt
    As a nurse with a dialysis AND a critical care certification, I would say no. If a patient has an IJ then possibly get them out of bed and stand on the spot. With a femoral line, forget it. Our...

  18. Salary of an RN?
    It really depends on your location, your expertise, your experience, your qualifications and your area of practice. High end RNs with a BSN in Massachusetts in critical care can make excellent money,...

  19. Work Schedule and School
    In undergrad, I worked in an ICU 11a-11p and every third weekend so I'd just work on assignments on days off as I only worked 3 days a week. That was pretty sweet, and everything was online anyway...

  20. Drawing labs from CVC locked with heparin
    I guarantee that if you only draw 5ccs from a heparin locked CVC that your PT/INR will be hugely off. I've worked both acute dialysis and ICU and I can vouch for the fact that this is an issue...

    This sounds like the role of an acute RN, not the FA. All the FAs I have known (and I've known a few) worked office hours with the exception of some later meetings on occasion, and always being...

  25. First NP interview at mayo
    I would think of how to explain why working there interests you more than working anywhere else. What is it that distinguishes that place for you and what do you think you have to contribute.
