    Except when you work for a facility that the DON finds it inappropriate to quote the swear words. I don't know how many times I was threatened with a write up for quoting the exact words said. My point always was it is my documentation and license, so write me up then!

    I am finishing up my Bachelor's degree now, and it is not to necessarily move up the ladder. A lot of hospitals in my area only want Bachelor's degrees for any units. I graduated in 2010 and feel that to be an effective manager someday that I need to have many years of bedside nursing under my belt. So for right now bedside nursing is the path for me. P.S. I currently work in a long term care facility, which is ok, but I feel like a lot of my skills are not being used.

    It is clearly a violation. Without the express permission of the patient, in this case the parents as the child is unable to give consent, it is not permissable by law. To make fun of the child's condition is even worse. What an unfortunate situation.

    Hi,
    I am coming up to the one year anniversy of my first year at my first job out of school. I really hate this job and the mantra I have lived by is "Only a year." The Dean of the Nursing program I went to school at said no matter how much you hate your first job stay at least a year. It would be unprofessional to leave earlier. With that advice, I do not think it is unprofessional to leave after a year.

    In Hi!

    I am starting at the very bottom, but am pursuing my RN degree. I would like to take that farther and specialize in the forensic field. But just to get through the first phase I am looking at 3 1/2 years before I finish my RN degree. I have no prereqs done yet. I will have to say my boyfriend is very supportive and will help with the kids. It also helps that my son is 9 and my daughter will be 11 in April.

    Hi,
    I am a CNA working toward my Nursing degree. I'm 29, have two children and am pregnant with my third and last. So I have a pretty long road of school and work and kids ahead of me. But I am looking forward to it. I start in January and have some refreshers before I actually get to the nursing classes, oh well. I would like to specialize in the forensic field.
