Allnurses needs nurses

I have loved this site, but as I check , "Today's Posts", as is my wont, more and more, there are only student related topics.

What has happened here? Has anyone else noticed this? I have no problem with lots of students here, but I also want to participate in lively discussions with peers!

I totally agree with you Emergent.

I've commented on this several times, like 29 of 30 threads on the first page. I thought the idea to separate the student section into an independent site was a good one but it did not fly far. And the breakroom has been ravaged lately with the recent changes. I won't go to my state forum anymore because I can't find a thread that isn't about fall admissions to such and such school. Less and less for nurses. The site needs to be renamed to reflect the fact that it is for students.

Bring your friends, but not if they are also students! Ha!

HAHAHA I am supposed to have friends?? I thought that's why I come here. I remember Brian used to send me big boxes of pens to pass out at work to bring people here.

Brian never sent any pens to me. I am deprived.

How about where are the nurses with at least a year of experience?

I'd say 75% of the threads by non-students are "I've been in my first job for three months and this is awful/I'm being bullied/what do I do?!?!?!?"

The state forums are awful. They used to be really nice, but I agree that they are now all about this or that school waiting list or the New Grad program at hospital x,y,z. I wish they'd separate that stuff from the state forums again.

You know, I don't really mind the student and new nurse posts. It is kind of like being at work and all the other nurses in the nursing station are much younger than you and you overhear the conversations about dating, roommates and things that are not a part of my middle aged life. It is interesting to get that different perspective and remember how far you have evolved and changed along the way.

I agree with all about this. I used to really enjoy learning things from experienced nurses working in areas different from mine.

I agree about the state forums. There should be a place to discuss nursing in the state without it being overrun by internships and the like.

That being said, this is a place to welcome and mentor new nurses and up-and-coming nurses as well. Hopefully we can nurture relationships with newbies and crusties alike.

A lot of the nurses that had those lively discussions posted with the app from their phone. Once the app disappeared so did a heck of a lot of people.

I know I don't access the site as much now that the app is gone. Navigating the site on my iphone is not something I enjoy. I am a nurse who is currently back in school full time so my free time is limited anyway. I get on maybe once a week now, but only have the time to read a post or two typically. We need an app that is well functioning. That will bring some of us back.

I think this has always been my same username. I don't recall ever changing it. I was a moderator for a while too before I went MIA.
