  1. Nursing is a passion?
    I tend to think the topic is destined to be a fruitless discussion in all cases, because someone's passion and even their compassion (we haven't had a real good compassion throw-down in a while!)...

  2. Getting a parent to switch agencies
    I've seen patients/clients switching agencies and bringing nurses with them, and I've seen where one nurse will launch a campaign to get the family to switch. The thing is usually it means all the...

  3. The Elephant In The Room and Evidenced Based Practice
    I agree 100%. As I was reading through what Dr. Buerhaus explain what he felt was the preferable alternative to ratios, I thought that most likely my colleagues would fail to see how it would...

  4. The Elephant In The Room and Evidenced Based Practice
    I remember from researching a related topic being very surprised to learn the ANA opposes ratios, to the point a number of state branches voted to sever ties with the national association. I've...

  5. Remembering the First Black U.S. Army Nurse During Black History Month
    Thank you for this, Commuter, and for the information about the book. It's timely because lately I've been reading Civil War memoirs like a fiend and have not seen that one. :up:

  6. I'm an LPN and I understand.
    I agree RNs should be paid more, but I'm not aware of any unit an LVN/PN may be employed in per their state's scope of practice, that would exclude certain patients on an "unpredictability" factor. ...

  7. New Grad Struggling
    I agree with the others. Also, I'm pretty sure they value someone who takes on twice the normal patient load during a weather event, and wonders how they can do better as opposed to having an...

  8. Nursing is a passion?
    Never had a passion or a calling, not that I would be against it in theory-- the concept baffles me perhaps because my early Catholic education describes visitations by spirit beings, usually as very...

  9. Ethics making you quit?
    Yes, I would quit such a job, not just for the moral aspect but the protect yourself aspect. I know there are some companies that are corrupt from top to bottom, such that your report to management...

  10. Job abandonment
    If you take the assignment, you are responsible for the 46 patients, if you're very lucky nothing goes wrong. If it does, you'll obviously be hung out to dry by these people. If there is one thing...

  11. hiring older nurses
    I agree that ageism is alive and well, and I'm going to show my age by talking about the way people are hired now compared to a long time ago, and my recollection of being the young one working with...

  12. I've been suspended

  14. Have you met your husband at nursing? Is nursing a good career to meet men?
    Having worked in 2 places wherein many young residents rotate through your unit on a regular basis, some people made a spectacle of themselves without realizing how it looked to others. Every little...

  15. Question regarding where I stand with my job (long, but with paragraphs!)
    Your responsibility is to the patient but if you ignore the personalities around you there is a risk of the "not a good fit". There are a number of other factors to consider. In the situation you...

  16. Question regarding where I stand with my job (long, but with paragraphs!)
    I don't see why you would be fired in this situation but neither do I regard the issue as "right way, wrong way". Every office has it's informal rules and regulations. Ask the provider to tell you...

  18. Politically Incorrect
    OK, but none of your admonishments appear to have anything to do with the topic. "Don't select a thread if it doesn't appeal to you" is pretty close, except for the OP included that concept in the...

  20. Over 60, seasoned nurse, fired for not being a "Robot RN."
    You agreed not to slander them, but can I slander them? :madface: But seriously, I've lived through such ruthless new ownership "partnerships". I've seen people fired after they trained newcomers...

    Just to address the "notice" issue. Agencies are notoriously lax in communicating information. Sometimes it's an oversight, and sometimes it's deliberate. They care a whole lot about their...
