  1. Is camp nursing for me?
    That they hire nursing students definitely does not mean there's an RN supervisor. You have to ask.

  2. Anyone who says she doesn't is lying
    Got it--it's been years since I did paper medication documentation except in downtime (when there's not a lot of oversight)--I thought the OP was talking about her brain sheet. I can see both how the...

  3. Anyone who says she doesn't is lying
    I've responded to this many times (and it's fine if others don't agree, but this is misrepresenting what I say, though I can't think how I could say it more clearly to be honest)--of course...

  4. Anyone who says she doesn't is lying
    Why is that incorrect? Just yesterday I was giving a training regarding medication error and told the participants (actually I am training them to give the seminar themselves) that I want people to...

  5. Major Med Error
    #27 is a great post and exactly what I would have said, only not as well, I think it was also what the other reality-check nurse was getting at. OP, others have explained everything to you about...

  6. Camp Nursing for AAS students
    I'm not sure what an AAS student is.Some Girl Scout camps do hire nursing students to be a health officer, because it's difficult to find nurses. Search for camps in the areas that interest you and...

  7. Do you agree this was unethical?
    That nurse took the job from someone else. It's not like she convinced them to create a job for her, which would be great. She is employed but someone else is not: zero sum. Your argument holds no...

  8. Do you agree this was unethical?
    I think this was sketchy as hell and kind of crazy/narcissistic. Even if it's the only episode of wrongdoing on her part, I think it absolutely speaks to her character. She's extremely lucky not...

  9. DNP Abroad
    Yes, it is rare for NPs to be able to work as NPs abroad, clinically, because there isn't any such licensure. I have known NPs who had informal arrangements where they were technically licensed as...

    My reply didn't go through, I guess... Anyway, okay, India is totally different and the nurses aren't like CNAs--i thought from the brief description that you were somewhere more like here....

  11. Travel Nursing and Pregnant?
    As a nurse currently working in Africa, I am alarmed at the idea of you being pregnant with and possibly giving birth to twins in a developing country. (I realize you havent tokd us your actual plans...

  12. Looking for a career change
    I have done a ton of hiking and biking during travel assignments. Being away from "real life" means there are fewer distractions and obligations, and not being involved in hospital politics, etc,...

  13. Who really wants BSN degrees?
    You're already in the class. Finish it. You won't find any more useful thing to do while you wait to start school. And you may find that if you get a job in a hospital, they will help you pay for...

  14. Permanent position vs traveling?
    Relocating to HI shouldn't make you nervous if you want to travel!--I know it's a commitment but moving every three months is more stressful, I would think. A lot of people would kill for that Hawaii...

  15. New Grad & No Jobs :(
    Are you able to move to another state for a year or two? Yes, the applications may specify acute care experience preferred, but nonavute is preferable to nothing. I get that you have to weigh your...

  16. Patient videos on social media?
    This hospital doesn't have any intranet, but even at my hospitals that have, I wouldn't know where or how to upload a video to an internal education resource site. Is this common?

  17. How do you handle 10 patients at once
    I used to work with two great LPNs and one that I couldn't trust at all. With the two good ones, they were open to dividing the work however I chose. Some RNs would divide the assignment in half and...

  18. Patient videos on social media?
    I'm kind of being devil's advocate on this, because my kneejerk response is, be safe by staying away from social media. But this has become quite the discussion among the staff. The video is 24...

  19. Patient videos on social media?
    A new one came up for me today: a patient needs his wound irrigated in a specific way, so the doctor and the nurse assigned to him that day made a short video showing the technique and uploaded it to...

  21. Are most new grad RN preceptors like this on the first day?
    No, I wouldn't even approve of that for a first day for most experienced nurses moving to a new hospital, much less a new grad. I'm not so much concerned about his manner or his timeframes (though I...

  22. Trying to figure out what to do with my life
    I would add to that, "being able to find a job easily" isn't a good reason. So many people struggling in their fields get the suggestion to become a nurse from their moms and friends, who think it's...

  23. Facebook nurses and patients
    For those who say "where's the harm" I say... Where's the benefit? I think often when nurses stay "friends" with patients they're using the patients to meet some unmet need of their own. I don't...
