    Do Employers Desire Nurses With FEMA ICS Certifications

    I took a couple of those courses (FEMA). Interesting and dry subject at the same time. But it all makes sense if you are into disaster preparedness. The terrorism subjects are the scary ones to read about. Very eye opening. You'll never look at the stuff in your house the same again LOL. I'd rather read a med surg, drug, EMT or CPR book any day though to be honest.
  2. In the age of mass shootings, crazy panhandlers and addicts, activists, and a history of being robbed at gunpoint (hooray for PTSD!), I always carry a first aid kit, CAT tourniquets, and emergency bandages in my backpack no matter where I go. I could be going to the corner 7-Eleven for some Doritos and I got my peeps covered. 20 years ago, I would have laughed at myself for carrying that crap around. Today in 2019? It's a must like carrying your phone with you. What about you? Are you as paranoid as I am?

    Retiring Too Soon

    "My children (21, 16, 16) seem to take advantage of my cognitive problems and confusion but they are pretty overprotective of me as well." The *expletive* ? LOL So how much cash do you still have in your purse? Any weird charges in your credit cards? This would be elderly abuse.

    Do you guys also iron them after washing and drying them? I remember years ago, I showed up to work with wrinkly scrubs. A doctor chewed me out for that and I never showed up for work ever again without ironed scrubs LOL. I'm ex-military, we iron our *expletive* anyway!! I slipped that one time.

    Bullied psych nurse commits suicide

    I read ya. But man, some of these PROFESSIONALS are bordering on criminal acts (felony)than just ticky tacky mild personal beefs. Correction, what they did was a criminal act.

    Bullied psych nurse commits suicide

    The worse bullying besides being threatened to be killed or "assassinated" by psycho managers or a coworker *cough* is the gossiping and character assassination. Sweet Jesus. I remember I was one week or two from going on my annual vacation back in 2012, and my coworkers including my manager made up stories I was retiring to the Philippines and stated I was a "flight risk" like WOW!!!!??? Flight risk as in a criminal about to run away from the country? LOL. Then this other instigator coworker of mine's was saying I was too old to get a job there blah blah etc etc and I needed up to date pictures on my resume. Uhh..I was going to Tokyo back then to propose to my then GF and coming back to work after my vacation 2 weeks later since you know, I had a good current LVN job and a mortgage to pay. LOL. So freaking funny. Yeah, I complained to the union and I think HR if I recall. Hilarious. Of course, you can guess this was a toxic workplace and got retaliated on for complaining about being HARASSED. I think we had HR sit down with us numerous times along with the union about our "morale" problems lol. I'm an idiot for not suing when I look back. And there were other crap going on since then too. So, I laugh when people say bullying doesn't occur in nursing.

    Social Media and Doxxing - Your Thoughts???

    I agree with you. Remember this: https://www.sacbee.com/news/local/health-and-medicine/article207364464.html

    Social Media and Doxxing - Your Thoughts???

    When somebody used to read our diary? I miss the 1980s lol. A lot of angry older sisters out there. Haha. Hopefully they've forgiven family members for that. But yes, it's a snitch Stazi/Gestapo culture we have now at work and outside it. Not only will these "people" report you, they'll set you up too.

    This should be changed in the future to "how often do you take your 3 piece suit to the dry cleaners as a nurse"?

    Bullied psych nurse commits suicide

    From people that are the true bullies? Let me share a couple of "bullying" stories. Back in 2009(?), I was working for a university and I witnessed the floor manager pat a floor nurse (like how you would pat a golden retriever) in the head pretty hard and stated she was a good nurse. Wouldn't you consider that bullying? I saw that and my jaw practically dropped to the floor. The look on this floor nurse I will never forget. Talk about demeaning. This was an RN floor nurse and she was a pretty damn good nurse. Heck, most of the RNs on that floor were awesome. This same manager practically cornered me in the locker room one day and well...you as an adult can figure that out.

    Concealed Carry...as a nurse?

    In a combat support hospital, you better believe medics and LVNs will be packing *wink* *wink*...God, I miss locking and loading a rifle, SPORTS, function checks, cleaning and putting back a rifle together (except hand guards) and unloading a magazine or two down range. It's like playing an electric guitar. Nothing like the gun powder and carbon smell of a M-16A2 rifle or .45.

    Tell me why an LVN/LPN is a "real nurse"

    I'm an LVN and after decades of hearing about LVNs vs RNs and what's a true nurse blah blah...who cares. Also include that LVNs are getting phased out too BS. In the end, we are all on the same side along with the doctors, aides, assistants, and nurse practitioners.

    Bullied psych nurse commits suicide

    Ha. I like how you have quotes on the word bullying like it doesn't occur. Buddy, just a year ago, I was orientating in this clinic and one of the senior LVNs at this clinic was talking crap on how she was going to set me up. Right, I'm kwaaazy and I just imagined that right? Better up the dose on that seroquel I tell's ya. Your son's friend works in health care? BTW, do a search on bullying on this site alone and tell me how many nurses here are complaining about that. Next, go on your favorite search engine or You Tube and look that up and get back to me. If enough people are reporting it, you gotta at least give them the benefit of the doubt instead of labeling them as crazy.
