    They should let us guys wear a shirt and tie--females wear whatever you females wear. You wanna talk unprofessional, how about pajamas with body hair sticking out all over? One small motivation for me to get my FNP is so I can start wearing professional apparel again.

    I just passed the NCLEX on Monday, called the hospital to tell them (left a message with the recruiter), and got a call back today (Thursday). I had already applied with them weeks ago before I even took the NCLEX. Apparently, they just wanted to wait until I officially was a nurse to call back. But, there are several of my female counterparts who already have landed jobs, too. And this is in the suburbs of Chicago, of all places (can you say saturated?). But, I also am a military vet, which is also not really comparable to young females with no experience, so who knows?

    I wrote a paper on that very topic.... It was titled "The sexualization of Man's Touch." And the evidence and articles support that it is true that a male nurse's touch is sexualized versus a male doctor or female nurses. It's ludicrous, of course, that every male is just a rapist or sexual predator waiting to attack, but that is what some people think. You will find a lot of articles on this, just search your article database at your school. I personally like having the odds stacked against, it makes me a better nurse.

    Wow, it is so refreshing to find a small outpost of believers that isn't riddled with filler from non-believers who want to get a word or two in on their opinions of Christianity to try and marginalize and patronize. I certainly hope I can find nurses like you all if and when I get my first job, that would make the shift so much more bearable. Praise God for His grace and His gift of Christ

    Glad you brought that up! I was waiting for someone to say that... It's one of the most misused texts. Firstly, you, like almost all others, are not even quoting the entire text. In context it reads "Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, Let me take the speck out of your eye, when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye." As you can see, in context, the verse is referring to judging a person wherein the person judging is guilty of the same judgement--that person is then told to 'take the log out of his eye', or repent of his actions which may be worse than the person he's accusing, and then 'remove the speck', which is then to tell your brother to repent of his. Moreover, there are a vast array of other verses that support the judgment of brothers (meaning those in the faith). For example, John 7:24 'Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgement.' Indeed, there are multiple examples of this righteous judgement of believers by other believers in the text, and if you are truly interested I could go through them with you, but just for now realize that this common misconception of 'judge not' for all things is not accurate. I will add though, that the teachings of Jesus are to not judge those who don't claim to be Christians, for this is left to God...so you can apply 'judge not' to those circumstances, just don't use that commonly used text for support because that is not what it is saying. Just realize that it's all based in love for each other to help each other when we stumble. So, it actually is not contrary to the fruit, rather it embodies them. I invite you to read the Bible for yourself, it's really the only way for people to clarify some of these commonly held misbeliefs and misconceptions.

    Greetings. Is it possible? Maybe, depending on when and where your school has clinicals. Every semester your clinicals should change, but usually you will have 2 to 3 rotations per semester, meaning you will have 2 to 3 days, usually 0645 to 1600, of work in a clinical setting. During clinicals, I don't see how it would be possible for you to remain on your duty schedule, because you cannot miss any clinical hours as they are all tabulated so your degree is accredited. And it is impossible to do those clinicals at other times because the clinical is headed by an instructor and it is treated like class. You would have to get with your platoon or section Sergeant (or whatever you Air Force guys call it) and see if they can work around your school schedule. Now, you will need your pre requisites, which can easily be done around your work schedule on your off time.

    Just do what a lot of us other active duty guys did... Get out, use the post 9/11 and do school full time while getting paid for it. Now I can go back as an Officer if I want to, or ruff it out in the civilian sector. Post 9/11 is baller man, use it while you can...it's worth over $142k for me (value depends on where you live and the cost of the school). It's your money, you better use it. And no more formations!

    Oh no, it's not arrogant at all. In fact, it's laid out rather clearly in the Bible on what a person displays who is truly Christian. We are, actually, told to be judgmental of those who claim to be Christian but don't show it. Coincidentally, that was what Christ did quite often... Tell people who claimed to be religious and holy that they were actually spiritually dead and headed for death. See, it's not much different today. I invite you to read the Bible for yourself and you might be surprised...Christians are not based what you call yourself, but the status of your heart, which is plain to all people by the fruit in your life. And by 'fruit' I mean the 'fruit of the spirit' which is plainly described as love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. It's It's a daily struggle to live that way in this world, but God gives you the ability to rise above circumstances. Thanks for asking!

    Thanks brother. I'm looking right now at all major medical centers around suburban Chicago, even some smaller community hospitals. I haven't decided to look into nursing homes or doctors' offices, but if the search goes stale, that may change.

    This forum doesn't seem to be populated very often, does it?

    Vicedrn I noticed that the KOI tall pants only had a 34" inseam, you say your husband fit into that? Considering my inseam is 37" I don't see how that could work for anyone as tall as me... But then again, I've been told I am all legs. I'm leaning more towards just calling up Aviator and telling them my size so they can make me up some because their scrubs look amazing and look ultra durable with the double or triple stitching. Thanks for the help

    Coincidentally, God actually has given us the power to discern who has the Spirit and who may simply say it. And the Bible says time and time again that we are judge those who claim to be followers of Christ but who bear no fruit. But, anyway that's way off topic and I appreciate your transparency. God bless

    Sorry, let me clarify--empty of the Living Spirit of God which has been given to us freely and is available to all. Of course, I wasn't implying non-believers are void of emotion or anything like that, as Christians were non-believers at one point and the Spirit of God was added to them. And it can given to you, as well, if you really desire it.

    Have any tall males, over 6'5", had any luck with any off-the rack scrubs? Or maybe found somewhere to buy custom scrubs that are quality? I found Aviator scrubs, but their website seems to only have scrubs for tall males who are also quite obese, judging by the width measurements. Thanks.

    Don't worry sister, you have fellow believers around you where ever you go. Don't mind the cold comments on here by the mass of empty non-believers--I always am entertained by people who claim to be athiests or non-Christitans coming onto Christian threads or Christian websites (like the Christian Post) and spewing their hate and intolerance of Christians (they can only judge Christianity by its abuse). But, that's a price for living in this broken world, I guess. The best thing is just to remain steadfast in faith and be filled with the Spirit so to be an example with the fruit in your life. Hopefully, because of your light, people will come to Christ. Continue the faith and God bless!
