    I want one of those jobs!

    I've been a nurse for ten years in various settings. I never even have time to pee or get a lunch.
    OK, I'll confess. I've got one of those "cushy" jobs where I check in on the BB at work. I just finished writing a presentation on CHF for laypeople and I'm working on one on pediatric trauma. This is my "sanity break". And yes, the BB information as been more than helpful to me at work. If I'm posting a thread asking for information to help me in my job, I'm always up front about why I need the help. The BB has been helpful to me in maintaining current standards in practice areas that are a little out of my realm (I'm a CNS with a background in cardiovascular critical care, but I'm covering a whole hospital right now). I'm a little cautious about posting since I was "outed" once at work, but I go through spurts of posting, then hanging back. (And no, I haven't peed or had lunch. )

    (Mel and Disablednurse:
    Sorry to burst a conspiracy theory bubble of ya'lls.)

    I did not feel that there was a conspiracy or clique. There are a lot of boards that have people there that have been friends for a long time and that do not open up easily or quickly to newbies. I understand that, I was just making a comment about why I was hesitant about posting and not lurking for a while. When I am new, it takes me a while to open up to others also. I meant nothing by the comment.

    Hello, my name is Karen and I am a lurker! Actually, there is always so much stuff already said that I read it all but I usually don't have anything new to add. I don't want to add something that was already said or sounds unintelligent so I lurk (but I really enjoy it!)

    ever since I came here, I knew it could offer me some information.
    I've already learned a ton that I will take with me when i begin my new job. I thank you all.
    Also the main hospital I did my clinicals with ....Samaritan Hospital in Ashland, ohio ........ the nurses were wonderful with students as well as precepting me.
    I need to post more, but at this moment i'm concentrating on searching for the right position/job for me.
