I've been at AN for over 15 years, since I decided to apply to nursing school. In my time here, I've gone from nursing student, to fledgling novice OB RN, to a skilled and expert L&D nurse, to getting my MSN, and my first supervisor job, then manager, and in 2 days, I start a new job in a new state as a Director of Women's and Newborn Services.
AN is so important to me. I am always grateful for the professional insight, as well as the camaraderie.
I like to think that the only reason I have not been asked to help out as a guide or moderator is because I swear too much. *******s.
If the certification is a required part of your job description, then yes, it is reasonable to put you on unpaid administrative leave and receive disciplinary action if you allow it to expire.
Regarding the McDonald's coffee lawsuit: McDonald's had been cited several times prior to the incident by OSHA for keeping their coffee 20 to 30° hotter than OSHA recommendations. They knew that the temperature they served their coffee could cause third-degree burns in under 10 seconds of exposure, but they chose to serve it that way anyway because they thought it "tasted better".
No, I would instead find a different job. I would never work somewhere that would reduce me to tears before each shift. Life's too short for that ****.
I've worked for Centura. I found that it didn't align with my values as an OB/women's health nurse, so it's not somewhere I would choose to work. Have not worked for SCL, but I imagine it would be the same for me as well. I prefer secular hospitals. Sorry I can't be more help.
My understanding of utilization review (and please correct me if Im wrong) is that it deals primarily with inpatient hospital stay. With that in mind, I would think that looking at the entire spectrum of the patient's care, from hospital to home (job #1) would be more relevant and transferable.
IMO, anyone who is in any way defending, or not strongly denouncing this t-shirt, and this guy for wearing it, is a disgusting human being. You may feel emboldened by our current pathetic excuse for the POTUS, but you are on the WRONG side of history.
All you by the book naysayers really ought to try it before you knock it. Don't live like a socialist goose-stepping prude. Live a little and explore.
Smoking weed is not all that. Why are people so obsessed with it?
