  3. Thoughts On Eliminating Nurse Report

    As a different perspective, I work in ED and this is what we do. We do it on the computer and it’s saved on their file, so can’t be lost or hard to read. We still do a phone handover for ICU/HDU/Children though. personally I think it works...

  10. I'm Not Going To Be A Nurse!

    I have no idea why I wanted to be a nurse. I remember saying it as a kid. I said it all through high school. I never had an aha moment! Still to this day, I don’t know what attracted me to the job, just that I wanted to be a nurse. when I was te...
  11. I am 100% being bullied by management at my job. I have had enough of the BS, and I’m looking to get out. My job makes me feel so uncomfortable. My manager is nit-picking everything I do along with making things up trying to get rid of me. I wor...
  12. Quitting without notice?

    Normally I’m the first one to say give notice, leave on good terms. But in this case, if the hospital policy states you don’t need to give notice while on probation, and have another job lined up, then quit. Do it nicely though, talk your manger, and...
  13. Casual vs. parttime

    I worked casual as a new grad, and I loved it! There was always enough hours, but choosing your schedule, being able to take leave whenever you wanted, not having to work public holidays, planning things in advance and not having to worry what your r...

  15. Finally Left Nursing!

    A few years ago I knew a nurse that quit to work at a garden store. Honestly sounds like bliss right now. Taking care of plants instead of people. Plus have you even seen a customer get mad at garden store? Always seems so calm and peaceful!
