Stuff happens. The world won't end. Besides: once the first person bumps it, it kind of becomes new again. :clown:

Yes, you're right... the topic is still a valid one. I was more referring to those who were quoting specific posts. There's a good chance they won't be replying back anytime soon! :lol2:

I am not against the death penalty, however I think it would go against our code of ethics. Nursing is a caring role, and we (should) strive to provide care and be non-judgemental. We care in a holistic manner and do all we can to meet the needs of "sick" patients. Obviously we have our opinions on how to deal with punishment of murderers, but our opinions must be left to ourselves. We all took the Nightingale Pledge.

1. We are allowed to voice opinions.

2. I did not take any pledge, Nightingale or otherwise.

You are right we are allowed to express our opinions, what i was referring to was not in a blog site, but at the bedside. And I have to say that you are the first nurse (you are a nurse right?) who has never taken that pledge, did you have a pinning ceremony?

I have noticed that when their is television coverage on lethal injections they always seem to be delayed because they can not establish good IV access in a timely manner. I always think to myself let me at them I will get it. Would I do it...Yes I would.

Your answer makes no sense. We are not at the bedside, we are posting on an internet board -- vents, opinions, questions, concerns, etc.

I had a pinning ceremony. There was no pledge involved.

i'm not against the death penalty for people who deserve it, but my issue would be the same as what someone else mentioned - i would worry that i might be assisting to end someone's life who was innocent. it happens. there are people released all the time who were wrongly convincted. if you took that job, you wouldn't get to pick and choose who you thought was innocent or guilty. it's just not something i'd want on my conscience.

as a side note, i favor life in prison mostly because i think death is the easy way out compared to living a miserable life behind bars. not to mention - it costs MORE money to put a man to death than it does to house them in a prison for life. trust me - i've researched it. look it up.

I'm strongly against capital punishment, and there's no amount of money that would be worth using my professional training and certification to murder people.
