    So up until 130 the computer was making a decision on where I was at?
    Here is a great video on how NCLEX works

    72$ a day? Are you talking home health or private duty?

    Seems you have done what you can, maybe try again? I have one case where there are only two nurses. The other nurse doesn't initial the mar or maintinence sheet. I am always having to text or call her asking if she did so and so. Bugs the hell out of me!

    Runnnnnnnn! I started off as a new grad making 24$ a hour even during training. I'm in NC and I know the cost of living is cheaper here.

    I think if your nurse manager plays trivia crack with you then you have it made. Small talk completed

    I love GA. The depiction of nurses/doctors is unreal, but it's just a show. I wouldn't waste so much effort on it.

    Ahhh see this is a perk of my job. I wear sweatpants and whatever t-shirt is clean. PDN, gotta love it! (certain clients at least)

    You have to understand that people will more often complain than they will praise. It's a way to vent. There are some very legitimate posts on here that question whether someone should be a nurse or not, but if you read through the comments it's usually just a normal reaction we have to stressful event's, because well, being a nurse is stressful at times.

    I love my job... do I complain? OF COURSE! Who else can us nurses complain to? I think AN has been my saving grace at times letting me know I'm not alone.

    If you aren't tied down to anything, could you try travel nursing? Not sure if that would get you into L&D, but from knowing friends who do it, it is a great experience and you will learn a lot!

    Aside from a couple of posts, this thread paints a negative picture of daycare and might make some parents feel guilty for working and missing time away from their kids.
    I agree with you. My kids are almost teenagers now, they both were in daycare even though I wasn't even working. We did it for the socialization (I was a young mother and didn't know anyone else with kids) and because we were told that having them in that kind of environment would build up their immune system and get them ready for school. Not sure how true that is, but my kids are rarely sick now whereas it seems half the school is out with the flu and stomach bug. *shrugs*

    They both are still in afterschool 10+ years later and they are very well-rounded, polite, respectful, loving young men. They know mama loves them, there is no doubt whatsoever!

    Got an unna boot prescribed, thank God! This patient also for months has been upset with me because I wouldn't administer their insulin without an order. They finally got an order and I administered it for the first time (for this patient) and they seriously said "I really thought you just didn't know how to do it" *sigh*

    Thanks for all of your replies, I truly needed some advice on how to deal with my feelings. I'm feeling pretty depressed about it all and pretty horrible to say the least.
    Gooselady I didn't ask for help for so many of the reasons you listed, I think mainly is was because I am so new to nursing and I felt like the nurses thought I should know more, and I began to feel like an idiot for asking questions and started to feel like I should know more than I do. I have also listened to some conversations between staff about students asking too many questions and other things and started to feel like maybe I was annoying the staff.
    I realize that I shouldn't care if I'm annoying that staff or asking too many questions and I have learned that the hard way and its weighing very heavy on my heart and my mind and I can not even begin to explain the guilt that I feel. I also feel that if I talk to anyone at work about how I'm feeling they will talk about me and I don't want to be the center of anyones joke
    classic example of nurses eating their young. Annoy the hell out of them and ask many questions. DO NOT EVER BE AFRAID OF ASKING FOR HELP.

    It took you 15 minutes + to start an EKG and then you only spent another 15 minutes with the patient before handing them off to someone else.
