    Huh? Could you rephrase that, or be more specific?

    I mean't to ask wha it was that usually sets a nurse in the -course of action that is against their' "Better Judgement" '. What can be the deciding factor in these types of decisions?? Answer away as I care not who makes a reply. This thread is just to satisfy my curiosity. Even as I preview this message I can see how calllous it could seem and I ask that you not see it this way.

    Look at it this way:

    This is where I can learn from mmy class

    **NOT where they can learn from me.(*****) Not yet, at least.)))))

    Doest that make any sense??

    Hmmm. I think it can happen when you minimize the severity of the offense you commit...

    Or think, "Oh, it's just Patient X, who I have a good working relationship with..." (making exceptions to rules that you have no authority to do).

    Or, if you start to have feelings beyond a therapeutic relationship. That's always bad.

    I can't think of anything else right now.

    Thank You "CUTE_CNA"

    After getting some of that coffee in the system I have found the grammer errors in my previous posts. I believe "CUTE_CNA" found the pulse of the thread. At least the one I am looking for.

    In every aspect of work we find something we can manipulate so that it conforms to "me". I am guilty of it and it never seems to fail. We find ouselves working outside of the prescribed guidelines, I am speaking of anything as it applies to my commo MOS in the the ARMY. This is not nescessarily bad as it is a learning experience unless you look at it in the respect the you should follow all instruction to the exact T!! In that case I feel sorry for you as you have closed your mind to new ideas. I am beginning my transition to civilian life ATT. I want to see new ideas pop up in my area of interest. I also want to see the end of infighting within sections(Platoons, Etc...).

    I know the things I mention above sound odd. Maybe it's just the way I articulate my thoughts. In some recent posts I am starting to ask that you guys keep me in check when it comes to this kind of stuff. I am trying to not come out sounding like an AS*H***.

    Reminds me of a line from a song... "every man's conscience is vile and depraved; you cannot depend on it to be your guide, when it's you who must keep it satisfied."

    The thing that immediately comes to mind when you ask the question: What sets you in a direction you shouldn't take as a nurse is thinking that you are not part of a team, that you are having to carry the weight of everything on your own shoulders. Then you start to make decisions that are not really yours to make and that can step on a lot of toes.
