  1. To NP or not?
    I'll be 50 when I graduate but if you don't try you'll never know. It's not easy but then what is? Things are great for me right now as I have a desk job in informatics, but what if things change and...

  2. Dialysis RN
    I worked for DaVita for 5 years and all in all it was a great experience. Once you get past the fabricated party atmosphere, it's a great place to work, depending on which facility you're at. The...

  3. Nursing honor society- Sigma Theta Tau International
    I did. Only the people who were top of my class were invited and there were only 5 of us. I think it looks good on a resume and says a lot about your professional commitment. Has it done much else...

  5. My I'm going to medical school

  6. My I'm going to medical school
    Let's put it this way...it's rather juvenile to have a ranting meltdown that tears into an entire profession as a way of making oneself look better. It does, in fact, achieve the opposite. I've...

  7. Best shoes for nursing
    I swear by Merrell. I've had about 10 pairs and still have most of them. They last over a decade. I just can't wear them out! They're like tires for your feet!

  8. Any reviews of the FNP Sacred Heart University?
    I can't offer too much advice other than that I did my undergrad there and it was an excellent program with fantastic faculty. I really liked it and would have gone on to do my Master's there if I...

  11. ICU stress
    Both. My last ICU job was the hardest I've ever had. Constantly on the go, high acuity unstable patients, constantly changing assignments, and the pressure to be perfect 100% of the time.

  14. Drug seekers
    I'll never forget the time I ended up in the ED with terrible pelvic and back pain. I couldn't walk and I had no idea what was wrong with me. The first time they treated me like dirt and sent me home...

  17. fired for cancelling shifts d/t health issues?
