  1. Why are medication orders written this way?
    I haven't seen an order written that way before. I've found that doctors I've worked with don't really care what kind of tab it comes in as long as the patient gets the right dose. For example,...

  2. And then the MD said.....
    I'm just a student and so haven't had much contact with doctors, but I do recall the time a resident introduced himself to me, shook my hand, and then used my name when addressing me some time later....

  3. Crazy for wounds...
    Do you guys not have wound care nurses? Maybe it's a Canadian thing. Some hospitals around here have an RN (or more than one!) who specifically works with folks with complex (read: terrible) wounds....

  4. Need serious advice- dealing with smell
    Maybe a dumb question, but I work with homeless people, so my first question is do your patients have access to things like showers, washrooms and clean clothes? It's easy to just assume they don't...

  5. UBC Nursing 2013 Interviews
    It's nothing you can really prepare for. If you google MMI questions you'll get a bunch from things like medicine and dentistry and those are totally different from what nursing will be like. A lot...

  6. Don't Make this Job Search Blunder
    Reminds me of this woman, who instead of attaching a resume, accidentally attached a picture of a crazy-eyed Nic Cage: Accidental Nic Cage Resume Is Amazing (PICTURE)

  7. Sexual Orientation Question
    Wouldn't it make sense to ask so that it's clear that no one is making any assumptions? If I'm a primary health care provider and I'm talking with my patient about sexual health and/or...

  8. UBC Nursing - September 2013
    Just send them an email and request to change the interview time because you have an exam. It shouldn't be a problem, they're pretty relaxed over there.

  9. How much do you owe in student loans?
    My first degree was a BA in psychology, took 5 years, I did it without loans by working full-time and taking class full-time. My second degree (working on it currently) is a BSN and by the time...

  10. Sending MD pictures of wounds on cell phone?
    I know some nurses that do this. I suppose you could call them street nurses, though that's not their official title - they do outreach to shelters and drop-in centres, often at hours during which...

  11. New Psych position - please help need ideas
    I've never worked inpatient psych (so forgive me if my ideas are totally inappropriate and useless), but I have worked for a long, long time in a homeless shelter, and many of our clients were indeed...

  12. A Question for NICU Nurses (especially ones who have been for awhile)
    There is such a thing as rapid detox, or ultra-rapid detox, or whatever you want to call it, but I have never heard of it being used on a baby. The idea is that the practitioner sedates the patient...

  13. UBC Nursing - Sep. 2012
    I'm in too, though I found out last week. I've been following this thread for AGES, ever since I decided to apply in the first place, but only now registered. I'm pretty stoked!
