    As seen on TV

    My personal favorite is the nurse that does the check in, the ER, surgery and M/S rounds. Now THAT'S a busy nurse! SMH

    Extreme nurse burn out need help please

    You are not safe to work in your current mental condition. Do what ever you can to take care of yourself as to NOT get worse before you start your new position. Take your PTO, get a doctors note for time off or just quit. You are at a greater risk for an even worse error that may put your license in jeopardy.

    Are We Too PC?

    The world is becoming full of people claiming to be offended when in actuality they are trying to present themselves as special. If you have to be told that "White Christmas" refers to a Christmas (a December holiday) with snow then you are LOOKING for something to complain about. Instead of being "offended" people would be better off giving of themselves and taking an active roll in making this world a better place to live.

    Holiday Bonus

    $500 is nominal? I got $200 and was grateful for every last dollar. I also love my job, so this was TRUELY a bonus.

    Woman dies from tap water netipot use

    The headline for this story should be "Woman dies from not following the directions" but I guess that doesn't sound sensational enough.

    Would you call in sick?

    They won't "run just fine" but your butt isn't the one on the chopping block if you make a mistake because of exhaustion. It's well past time for hospitals, nursing home, etc. to understand that the more they take advantage of their staff the higher their lawsuit exposure is.

    Would you call in sick?

    "Well I disagree. You took this job knowing about your commute. You must of known about the lack of time between shifts. You've created this mess, now you have to deal with it. If I was your employer and I found out you were calling in sick because of the commute I would let you go immediately." Ahhh, just another compassionate member of the nursing community passing judgement. Forget that she's exhausted and could make an error that puts a patient at risk! Just make sure that shift is covered!

    RN, ADN being obsolete

    Sounds to me like someone is trying to sell you 2 additional years of student loans. "They" have been saying this since my MOTHER graduated with her ADN in 1970. As long as there is a need for BEDSIDE nurses, they will always use ADN's, LPN's and CNA's.

    "My doctor told me..."

    Sounds like a classic case of "If a little is good, a lot is better".

    New Nurse, morality question.

    "But than where do you draw the line?" When it involves your license.

    Removed from Nurse Residency Program-Should I Try Psych?

    Good question. I learned so much more in my LPN program than I did in the LPN-RN program. The bridge program didn't even have a pharm course "because they didn't have time to fit it it"!!!

    Removed from Nurse Residency Program-Should I Try Psych?

    LPN courses give much better floor training than BSN programs. When someone enters an accelerated BSN program, it's usually to get OFF the floor not ON.

    I'm lost. I want to quit nursing.

    And liquids.

    I'm lost. I want to quit nursing.

    Have you ever considered correctional or psychiatric nursing? These fields are not the "glam" jobs that the ED and OR appear to be, but if you like to talk to your patients these areas of nursing are well suited to your strengths. Home care may be another option as you have more 1-on-1 time with your patients. Just please, don't give up! There are so many other places to use your skills.

    Are We Letting Our Patients Suffer?

    The antibiotic that was also prescribed at the time should have greatly reduced the pain after 48-72 hours.

    Hot Cheetos are a public health menace

    That Title 19 box being filled out is a dead give away.
