    African American Hair Problems in Nursing

    I would never relax my hair for a job interview. Get the braids and wear them in a professional looking bun. If that is offensive to your potential employer, it is probably best you find out ahead of time. Also, I speak from experience; I have been n...

    Nurses fired for refusing flu vaccine

    From the article: Personally I don't usually get the flu shot because I question its value for young, healthy people. Most years I don't take it, but one year I did and became ill within a couple of weeks. While I know I didn't get sick from the va...

    The "Differently Abled" Nurse Speaks

    The intent of this post is honorable but I don't think of being overweight or older as a disability or being "differently abled". Also, I have met some overweight nurses who were lazy and unkind just like I have met some who worked circles around me...

    Would you be insulted if.....

    I wouldn't be insulted; I'd be embarassed that they had to ask me to do so in the first place.

    I agree with you Leslie, but I would go so far as to say that even in a non-management position a professional person should wear their teeth. It is the societal norm. I have never worked with a nurse who did not have teeth. The only time I have enco...

    I'm frankly surprised that you were able to get hired at all without any teeth. Lack of teeth is not something I associate with a professional appearance, nothin personal. You should get your dentures re-fitted.

    "We want a nurse who speaks CLEAR English"

    I've worked with many, many professionals from other countries and I can count on one hand the number of them I have had difficulty understanding. It happens but it's rare. The fact that they have had a string of nurses they could not understand is.....

    Shhhh! ---It's all a crock!

    They didn't dumb it down, they told him what it was about but he tuned them out. See the OP: I bet he wasn't the only one rolling his eyes at the boring details so they reduced it to a corny mnemonic. Oh well..........

    Implement a RADICAL IDEA! "Medical plan of care."

    You're welcome. It's funny but when I responded, neither you nor your opinion was even considered. Go figure. I was sharing MY opinion of the tone around her and I will continue to call it as I see it. And I cheerfully remain available when you ne...

    Implement a RADICAL IDEA! "Medical plan of care."

    Heh-heh, of course there are. I have argued that very point many times on this board. buuuuuuuttttt, many of our colleagues simply do not concur. I was merely trying to save OP some trouble and letting him/her know how it is around here.......

    Implement a RADICAL IDEA! "Medical plan of care."
