  1. CNA rant
    I'll start off by saying, I do and have worked with some excellent aides that have saved my butt many times over, and made what would have a been a horrible night something I was able to get through....

  2. Call bells
    Really? You'd be so rude as to interrupt me when I'm with another patient, for all you know is having a severe turn for the worse, for ice chips? You'd stalk me into someone else's room in which you...

  3. Call bells
    Agreed. I always explain the use of the call light to the family before I exit the room and let them know that they are free to use it if their family member needs something, and that it's the best...

  4. Call bells
    They can use the call button like everyone else. Coming out the nurses' station to badger me for a water is not necessary, especially after I've explained the use of the call button to you several...

  5. Burnt out
    I feel you, OP. I have been a nurse for two years now, and while the first year as new grad left me feeling burnt out from culture shock and feeling overwhelmed in general, the second year has left...

  6. Call bells
    I hate call bells. Sometimes a shift is so bad I can hear them in my head when I go home. Anything in the outside world that reminds me of the sound of a call light (or the admission pager for that...

  7. Why don't nurses bond?
    Careful, your misogyny is showing. *flames on the side of my face*

  8. Why don't nurses bond?
    I grow tired and frustrated about the social commentary and misogyny that women are inherently drama filled, gossipy, evil beings who can't form friendships, Really? Why is it that when men gossip,...

  9. I can't believe I actually *like* night shift!
    I'm really glad you like it. It does have its perks, such as less commotion, less meds to pass, less people around getting in the way, (usually) less family, and sometimes the patients even sleep!...

  10. Do RNs get extra pay for working with students?
    My hospital does not offer extra pay when students are around. But it makes sense that they don't because clinical students are taught by their instructors, not the staff nurses. The students each...

  11. If you had a reset button, would you choose nursing again?
    No. I would have been a psychologist instead. That's what I really wanted to do. But I'm a nurse now, and while I do not hate it, I don't have a passion for it at all. At least not for floor nursing,...

  13. RN vs BSN, is a BSN really worth it?
    To me it's worth it even without a potential pay increase. There's nothing wrong with having more education, and I say this as someone who has an ADN. I am going back to get my bachelors. I was...

  14. New Grad, work calling on days off
    Do you think THEY feel bad when they under staff you? No. So stop feeling guilty. You work what you signed on to work - 3 12's per week - and you don't owe anyone your time off. That's the hospital's...

  15. Comparing myself/feeling inadequate
    Once you said you were introverted, that explained your problem right there. Sadly our society loves extroverts. Even the basic, mediocre ones will get more praise than an excellent introvert simply...

  16. How Important is it that your patients and their families like you?
    I've also been a nurse for about two years now. In the beginning it was very important to me that I was liked. So much so that it felt that part of the way I was acting was fake and sugary sweet....

  17. Late arriving Nurses
    Chronically arriving late makes you an a-hole. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. You are saying that you don't give a damn about anyone else's time but yours. You are saying that you give no cares to...

  18. What is the motivation for bullying?
    You can psychoanalyze people all you want, and some people do have legit issues that can be worked out. But I truly believe that a lot of times there is no rhyme or reason for bullying. Some people...

  21. Is it possible to be successful in nursing with poor social skills?
    Also, gummi, don't feel too bad about not being in that close social circle at work. Being the quiet observer that I am, I overhear things. People who act like friends to each others faces, back stab...

  22. Is it possible to be successful in nursing with poor social skills?
    I think they could be successful as a nurse, but maybe not so much with their coworkers. Why? Because nursing is very cliquey. Men and women alike. If you are perceived as different, the majority...

  23. Is it possible to be successful in nursing with poor social skills?
    I wouldn't say I have the best social skills. I'm an introvert who is reserved, and prefers to interact with very small groups at a time in a quiet, toned down manner; someone who would rather stand...

  24. How do you spend your first day off?
    Sleeping. I work nights. I usually sleep all of the morning when I get off, wake up mid-afternoon, and then go back to sleep in the evening and sleep through the night. By the time I wake up the next...

  25. What is it with nurses showing up late!
    Being tardy is my #1 pet peeve. It's rude and disrespectful. It says, "my time is more important than yours, and I don't give a crap what you might have going on in life." 45 minutes late?! With...
