  1. Nurses Fired For Viral TikTok Video

    Appalling behavior! In 30 years of nursing, I never "mocked" a patient. Have I complained about a patient? Sure, to my co-workers in our breakroom or after work as probably every nurse has done. The nurses who did this have something seriously lackin...
  2. Wrong Department?

    I am a nurse of 30 years and have precepted quite a few nurses-those with experience and those fresh out of school. Every preceptee I oriented had a list of skills that were to be observed by me the preceptor. As a preceptor I never assumed someone k...
  3. I have been a nurse for 30 years. I left the bedside 10 years ago to work in medical review/denials management. I still liked my bedside nursing job in mother/baby but was tired of being on call and working 12-hour shifts. I worked on mother/baby fo...
  4. War on Nurses

    I have 30 years nursing experience. I worked with some wonderful LPN's in my career including one that showed me how to be a nurse as a new grad. I have also experienced being the only RN on a floor with LPN's. I was not only responsible for my patie...
  5. Patient going to complain against me?

    I am a nurse with 30 years of experience. In that 30 years I have taken care of many patients with intractable pain due to cancer, chronic pain due to pinched nerves, Sickle Cell Crisis, intractable migraine, acute post-surgical pain and many more. I...
  6. Personal Deathbed Vision Stories?

    In the week before my mother died she would at times raise both of her arms up reaching toward the ceiling and say "James (my deceased father) take me on the boat, I am ready". I had worked on oncology for a couple of years and patient's talking abou...
  7. Preceptor Made Me Feel Like I Should Leave Nursing

    I had a similar experience working in a Level lll NICU. I was not a new grad and had experience working in L&D and Special Care Nursery. My preceptor was nice and everything seemed to go well on orientation. Then I was placed on night shift after...
  8. Leaving Your Job Due to Mandate

    Since the virus has a treatment and a 99 percent survival rate without any medical treatment AND the so called vaccine is unproven, not really a vaccine, and killing people( see openvaers.com), I would say goodbye and not look back. I know several h...
  9. Nurses are Fleeing the Hospital

    I am a 30 year nurse that has been away from the bedside for 10 years. Prior to leaving the bedside I worked a very busy mother/baby unit for 10 years and prior to that ED/NICU/L&D and oncology. The 10 years I spent on mother/baby were some of th...
  10. Patient Refusing Unvaccinated RN

    I think in this situation the family should be accommodated if possible. Simply being in the hospital with a sick loved one is very stressful and now add Covid on top of that adds to the stress. The patient's wife is stressed and scared of what could...
  11. First Time Parents Asked For A Different Nurse

    I was in the same position regarding time management. It took me quite a few years to figure out a system that worked for me. I used a small padfolio notebook and wrote out the tasks for each patient including times of medications, assessments, treat...
  12. Non-Patient Contact Jobs

    Search for jobs like Denials Nurse, Appeals Nurse, Case Manager, Utilization Manager, Medical Review and Clinical Documentation Specialist. Have a professional resume/CV written. Professional resume writers know how to get past the ATS systems compan...
  13. Setting my orientee up for failure?

    I loved precepting new grads and new hires. I had a new grad very similar to what you are describing very sweet and tons of book knowledge. However, she just could not function on her own. She never could develop a system of organization for herself....
  14. Time Management

    That's the kind of night you pray everybody just lives until morning and pray you don't make a mistake. Many nights on Oncology were crazy like this and I would be at the desk charting for 2 hours afterward. This is from a 30 year nurse. The last 10 ...
  15. I worked mother/baby for 10 years and loved it. I ended up leaving because of 12 hours shifts and being on call. Still loved taking care of new parents and babies when I left. Currently I work in Denials and have done so for 11 years. I started out a...
