as a nurse i know that you never want to do anything to put your license on the line. but as a new nurse you have a highten paranoia about it, i know that in some cases you may not say something that you know should be said bc you don't want to get in trouble or bring attention to your self. when does that feeling go away? the nurses that have been in the feild for 10-20 yrs are so non chalant about things and the same situation could happen to a newbie and they are freaking out for weeks. how do you calm your nerves? what helps you be more confident in what you are doing?

Why is there an ad in your post?

I just started to notice the ads as well...it's not just this one post.

Yeah I don't know where it came from....

How strict is the board, like what are some examples of things you have to do to get reveiwed by the board? Some things that you know other nurses have done to get reviewed or revoked.

Thanks,

sorry for all the ?'s

You mean the BON? Anything that anyone wants to turn you in for will get you reviewed. If there's no basis then the complaint will be dropped.

There's another thread about this very subject, I believe on page 2 now. Some things nurses get disciplined for: med diversion, chemical dependency, harm to a pt, neglect of a pt, abandonment, working outside your scope of practice.
