This stuff is sooo funny!!!!!
I am a rn who stepped out on faith and accepted a adon job in a nursing home. Just wondering if there is someone with any advise or help.
I never knew how much work this job had. I also have the title of c.n.a manager so I manage approx 80 cna -that is my biggest challange. I have worked as a cna for about 2-3 years,lpn for 5 and rn about 1 year so I really know nursing at many levels but find management a challange. I would love to chat with someone in this feild.
I work the 7p-7a shift and love it. It is less hetic, I don't have to fight every other dept. for my pts. or their charts. More laid back atmosphere, less noise and sometime a few pt sleep!
even then they could say no ONE can eat in that case--not just overweight people, but you can live without smoking but not food. I hear and unsderstand your fustration ,can you smoke in your car?or is that against the rules too?
HI guys, I work in Arkansas and we now have a no smoking policy in and around the hospital campus but people now smoke across the street, how is this new policy working in your neck of the woods?
I am happy that you have decided to move on to your next PROFESSION, as americans we change JOBS often, the great thing about nursing is that you can be a staff nurse, teacher/instructor, case manager, nursing manager, ect...But for some people nursing is just not for them, from the start, I suggest that all nurses start as CNA or some type of mentor program before they commit years of school to decicde they don't want to do it .It might have been "just a job" for some but for me its a profession I was "called" to do, I have always wanted to be a nurse.
So what do you have to say positive about nursing to past down to the next generation of nursing professions? How do you suggest we deal with the negative aspects of nursing?

LOVE NURSING!!!!!!!!! GOD BLESS YOU IN YOUR NEW JOB!
We are the glue, we keep it all together.
Nursing Is a great profession!
I share you excitement of working with the elderly. They have so much to offer us and a lot of times we toss them aside like trash. The hold our past in their hands, their hearts and their minds. Here is a challange for you guys who have grandparents give them a call and listen to the remember the past while you still can.
I am so happy that you have decided to do Nursing. I personally think that nuses who started off as cna's are more understanoing to other staff, because you have done all other jobs and are not afraid to get down and dirty if you need to it is like second nature to us. But we do run into the problem of trying to do it all ourselves. I was a cna for about 2 years and I was sure I loved it but wanted more. I became a lpn for a few years then graduated from the Associate Nursing Rn program( December, passed boards in March) and I loved being a LPN and now love being Rn, the pay is much better and my role silghtly changes in the hospital but not enough to make me crazy. You earn a new respect for Nursing when you start school, it is so much more than I ever thought when I was a CNA and each level you realized that more and more.
I am glad that I got this post from you, I forgot about this site,we did this as an assignment in class, I think I will post at least once a week.
I lOVE Nursing! God Bless You all :caduceus:
I have found that there are a lot of bullies in nursing and most of them are other nurses. I have been bullied in several ways from the people I believe should be the most nurturing. There is a nurses that I work with,she is the charge nurse on the weekend who comes in late just about every weekend and disrupts report by explaining loudly about the reason she is late or what she done over the week, she don't stay for report she just comes in like a world wind and distracts everyone else. No one else will say anything just say "that's just how she is"! I talk over her but most of the time she just talk louder which get on all our nerves, and it takes us longer for report.
There was another instance where a nurse, the charge nurse from the am shift, physically got in between me and my pm charge nurse while I was talking to the nurse about a pateint, as if I did not have the ablity to correctly explain what I just observed because I am a LPN.
I have seen nurses who like "brownie points" bully others when Dr.'s and managers are around.This nurse wants to be in management, so she steps on others to make herself look good.
I just think you should treat ALL nurses (and everyone else) with the respect that you want to be treated with. I am a firm believer in the "Golden Rule". We do have the problem where "nurses eat their young,"(and we wonder why we have a nurse shortage). When Nurses bully others around you make them feel inadequate which show in their work and attitudes. I think that everyday, you should uplift your coworkers, these are your team members and your team is as good as your weakest player!
Anyone have any "nice" ways to handle these situations? What are some ways you help new nurses or/and nursing students to feel welcome?
Hi I am a nurse who lives in Jonesboro Ar, I am a lpn 2 now who is graduating in december from that associate degree program. And loving it!
