    Feel sorry for this guy he seems to be fixated on "wiping up pee and poop!" It's always the same old song too! bash nurses, try to degrade them, get his butt kicked on the board and then slink away for a while.........

    Ok Dave,

    I have to say for the record I am A Nurse and I am Proud!

    First of all working as a volunteer you have no idea what the work load of the nurses on the floor are. Try taking total care of 4 patients one with chemo, one with 2UPRBC to be hung, two on reverse isolation with loads of IV ATBX to hung. No techs or CNA to do baths and 3 of your 4 patients are total assist or even partial assist. You have to pass meds at 9am and still have time to check labs before the docs get there to report any criticals. You bearlly have time to finnish your task when the docs come in and change all the orders and write for 15 more things to be done with that pt you still have to finnish a bath on.

    Most nurses out of nursing school are completely lost once they hit the floor trying to remember all that was crammed into your head with a little information about everything not enough information on anything. Most nurses choose to specailize then learn as much as they can about that area. For instance I could not tell you a thing about a cardiac cath but I bet you a cardiac nurse would not even touch the chemo orders I deal with daily. In fact I have had to leave my unit to go to the ICU to give chemo to a cancer pt.

    As far as scrubbs go I worked in a hosp where the unforms were ALL WHITE and it sucked. I think no matter what your inform is it can look nice. It is a matter of personal pride.

    Talk to me after you are finnished with school and have to take care of 4-5 patients for 12 hours a day then listen to the media and other people like yourself belittle you or your profession because they "think" they know what you do.

    Dave, I know you've heard your earfull by now and you might have even stopped paying attention to this post because of embarrasment over such bad judgement to post it in the first place.
    I just want to say:
    have you ever seen a fish hanging on a wall with it's mouth shut?

    It is easy to critique ANYTHING when you are looking in from the outside. Mostly because conditions are different on the outside than on the inside. (I know when I was a kid I knew just how my mom should have raised me, and she of course thought otherwise, but it turns out she did a damn good job and I wouldn't expect anything less from her. She IS a nurse afterall) I know you think you have an "educated" observation and that you see things that can be changed so without adding to or taking away from what has been said... If you have the power to see all of these things so clearly and in such a "positive" frame then you also have the responsibility to make the necessary changes.
    ---with great power comes great responsibility---
    Unless you are making changes for the better or have made such changes you should keep your coments as thoughtful plans.

    Education can be had from any book but Knowledge comes only from experience. With that being said... it is human nature to learn from our mistakes, as I am sure you have learned from yours.

    Can you imagine what his resume must look like? Volunteer who knows everything, manager, CEO by osmosis, laborer, nursing student extraordinaire....

    In case there are new people who are finding this discussion confusing a "troll" is a person who registers on a bulletin board with the express purpose of creating dissention. They rarely continue the arguement themselves merely initiate it.

    As you can see from the responses the frequent members of this board have faced this kind of activity many times and have become suspicious of those who appear to fit the mold of "troll" this has led to members being outspoken on the subject when they feel it is occuring.

    I will also point out that multiple "personalities" created for the express purpose of troll activity are a reportable offence and are likely to result in the accounts being terminated and the member being banned.

    Thanks you NURSES.
    I was ignorant as to what troll meant.
