    What is Abandonment?

    It is not patient abandonment because you never assumed care of the patient(s) so the BRN won’t get involved, no matter what your employer threatened. You can be disciplined or fired by your employer for job abandonment with a no call/no show. Two different conditions entirely.

    TX new grad with stipulations

    Once you have your actual RN license you might want to look at dialysis nursing. DaVita Dialysis is both new grad and stipulation friendly. I was very hesitant to try dialysis but really like the consistent patient contact and the hours.

    Where to start?

    This ASAP ^^^^^
  4. This advice ^^^ 100%. Work diligently at forming positive relationships with your co- workers. Take time to show interest in them as a person, even if you really would rather not. Perception is everything and if you are seen as a pleasant human being, other nurses will take the time to mentor you and overlook the minor mistakes everyone has made. Appear standoff-ish, distant, or uninterested in others and you will be stuck out there alone and thrown under the bus when issues occur.

    Dmu liscence suspended

    Your story is very difficult to read and understand- mainly because of spelling and punctuation issues. Maybe re-write and repost so we can help support you.

    I’m being investigated by the BON!

    ^^^ this 100%. Get a lawyer and be prepared to have the next 4+ years of your life be under monitoring scrutiny. Your BON is not going to make this journey easy for you and they don’t care if you have learned your lesson. The BON is concerned with patient safety and your lack of judgment in handling medications is a safety issue. Sorry to sound so harsh but your nursing license is now in real jeopardy.

    Nurse Gives Lethal Dose of Vecuronium Instead of Versed

    Nurse Gives Lethal Dose of Vecuronium Instead of Versed

    I agree with this ^^^ 100%- the nurses involved have a huge knowledge deficit and lack common sense. I am going to use this as a case study for my students

    Only Crusty Old Bats will remember..

    I agree- passing meds was much easier back in the day. I miss the Kardex

    Only Crusty Old Bats will remember..

    Oh yes- I remember this so well!!!
  11. Wow- just wow! Do yourself an enormous favor and do not go into nursing with this attitude and manner of communication.

    The Unwritten Rules Of Dating As A Nurse

    I just keep thinking about the old saying- "Don't fish off of the company pier". In other words- do not enter into a relationship with a patient- past or present- the nurse needs to maintain strict boundaries and use common sense.
