  1. "We owe Nurses Bigtime"

    What an awesome endorsement to nurses! The fact that this gentleman is not in nursing and is not stoking his own fire made his article a delight to read. We should all be thankful of those nurses who inspired him to right such a glowing account of t...
  2. Nat'l Nurses Week(ness)

    I received a private message from TLYNN. Subject: Nat'l Nurses Week -------------------------------------------------- What makes me sick that people think you are so high and mighty. We all know never to take any position that is unsafe for us o...
  3. What my DON said about getting rid of LPN's

    Wow. This really trips me out. Appears some of you are debating. I would like to point out something. Debating a point is only effective when the participants are defined. One is usually anti- while the other is pro-. The topic up for debate need...

  5. Find your voice

    I see it keeps creeping up that LPNs and ADNs are not satisfied with the efforts of the ANA. Heck, I can even agree. The ANA might be a good choice for BSNs - but where does that leave the rest of us? Well, if you are an LPN you can join http://www...

  7. ANA discriminates against LPN/LVN

    Devils advocate... While it is true that the ANA does not represent LPNs and holds BSNs in higher regard than ADNs I do not think that is a bad thing. One of the biggest underlying efforts of the ANA is to represent the BSN as a professional nurse. ...

  9. Nat'l Nurses Week(ness)

    aha, after reviewing your profile I think I found the sore spot. Your a poet!! I didn't mean the attack on poems about nurses personally but it is a good example of what I think is a nurse writing a self glorifying tribute to nurses that well exceed...
  10. Nat'l Nurses Week(ness)

    TLynn, What part of these posts makes you sick and rather die than be cared for by one of us? Is it the part where I suggest accepting unsafe conditions for patients is a weakness? Perhaps it is that I feel insulted by poems that portray nurses as su...
  11. Dream Job

    kjmta57 I know of such a place almost. It is a heart center in Miami. The patient room are very sweet too, like nice suites. Very exclusive. Good, Good pay but you have to be really on top of Cardiac care and look good in a uniform. Yada Yada....

    I am surprised I am not taking more heat over this. I was worried it was going to be an unpopular post. It gives me hope for our future that others share similar thoughts. HotSpam
  13. Input please

    I am curious what you all think could or should be done concerning the understaffing issue. When I was the Director of Nursing with a Home Health and Staffing Company I used to tell my nurses,"If you arive to do a shift if you feel it is an unsafe en...

  15. Nat'l Nurses Week(ness)

    It is my opinion that our celebration of ourselves and public displays of "look at us" are embarrassing. I did a search on Google.com(a popular search engine). Here are the keywords searched and # of results. "National Nurses Week" 1,080 results "...
