    Blunt Fill Needles for IM injections?

    Would you be okay with getting an injection with a blunt needle? I know I wouldn't be.

    Do Not Eat List

    My brother was eating nothing but salad for a few days and only used poppyseed dressing, he tested positive when he had to see his PO the following day.

    Tablet for school??

    Hello all! I am currently in my last class before i start the nursing program and i purchased the eBook for class. I'm having a hard time reading on the computer, i can use my phone but i find it kind of small. My question is if i invest in a tablet or iPad will i most likely use it for nursing school or is it just kind of a waste? I don't want to waste a few hundred dollars on something i won't most likely use for anything. Thanks

    Cleveland Clinic Nurse Residency

    Hi Nursing2019! I've been with the clinic for a few years now and I love it. I don't know much about the nurse residency program as i am just a medical assistant so I cant give you an opinion on that specifically. I can tell you that almost all of my coworkers are awesome supportive people that i am lucky to work with. The cleveland clinic does have some of issuses as does anywhere such as office politics or communication. CC also has a lot of really good programs and benefits that people don't know about or utilize often. Anyways welcome to the CC family and good luck

    Should I become a CNA OR MA?

    Seems i stand corrected, its seems like a lot of people have had really good experiences as a CNA on here. The experiences I had were horrible, loved the residents and patients but thats about it. Anyways what ever you choose good luck

    Trump's 'religious conscience'

    So I've read that this is going to extend further then just abortion. Sign language interpreters can refuse to translate information about birth control. EMTs can refuse to treat. A caregiver can refuse to help dress a disabled transgender person in the clothes of their preference. Is there going to be laws and rules next that police can protect who they choose? Or teachers are only going to teach children that share their beliefs? People in healthcare help others in their hardest of times. I just don't agree with it.

    Is it wrong to leave a job during orientation?

    I feel like yeah it sucks for the company and all of the workers because the hiring and training process can take forever. But i agree with Jedrnurse, I would rather have someone leave during orientation or as soon as they figure out that job isn't for them.

    Trump's 'religious conscience'

    Has anyone heard of this? Its saying that basically ANY healthcare worker has the right as of July 22nd to refuse care to a patient due to the healthcare worker's moral beliefs or religion. I'm so confused. First of all we as healthcare workers are here to help EVERYONE. Most people think it will effect LGBTQ or women, which I can definitely see happening. I mean rapists are against my morals so does that mean I can refuse treatment? I've been looking this up trying to find some clarification. On the NPR website it states "Last month, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services put out a new rule that "implements full and robust enforcement" of existing laws that protect what the administration calls "conscience rights" for health care workers. The rule is set to go into effect on July 22." https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2019/06/11/730659035/-patients-will-die-one-county-s-challenge-to-trump-s-conscience-rights-rule https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/28/politics/legal-challenge-hhs-conscience-objection-rule/index.html I added two links of articles I have found on it, still confused though. Any thoughts or facts you guys have?

    Should I become a CNA OR MA?

    I'm not sure, I don't think they do. I haven't been a CNA in years.

    Expiration date checks on supplies

    I work outpatient and were expected to do this. Not to that extreme though, we don't write the expiration dates. We each have rooms assigned to us and every month we check the expiration dates of everything and write down what has expired.

    A & P 1 Lab

    Khan academy! They are very useful and its free. Also Pinterest, i know that sounds weird but you can find almost anything on there. I would print out the different systems i found on there and put them on my binder. Best of luck

    Really? My college encourages us to retake classes if we can get a better grade because it helps our GPA. Is there anyway to talk to a counselor to see file an appeal to get some bad grades off from classes you don't need. My college also does that and i'm appealing a computer class i took eight years ago that I don't need and has nothing to do with a nursing degree. I was actually told to do it by a counselor. So maybe make an appointment with an academic counselor

    I would look into retaking a few classes to try and get higher grades in them. Or taking classes that you would need to graduate but not necessarily be in the program for, such as an A&P class or a math. this will help your GPA a lot. Good luck!
