    Why the double standard.

    Being 100% honest, because of the era we live in, #metoo, and social expectations that are alive and well, I didn’t EVEN GET THE TRAINING NECESSARY in 10 years of Nursing MS, ER, Critical Care to conduct a female procedure. In Nursing School, we were...

    Scared to death

    Ouch, a lesson for ANY future nurse dealing with the BON and any thought of self-disclosure(GET AN ATTORNEY BEFORE ANY BOARD OF NURSING RELATED COMMUNICATION OF ANY DISCLOSURE!!!) And, if it seems like I am coming off hard and inconsiderate- I made t...

    Ohio Hospital Fires 23 After Fentanyl Overdose Deaths

    Trust your gut always. MD’s/DO’S/NP’s/PA’s get tired in this “Narcotic Crisis,” and write checks your BON WILL NOT CASH?!!!!! If you have “The First Reservation,” do not administer the order. Your License can be insured, it CANNOT be Guaranteed. (Du...

    Reporting conviction to BON

    I just wanted to say, on the question, “do you think a lawyer could benefit me after self incrimination...” My “Public Defender” had my statement thrown out because I had made it under the influence of a Narcotic,” and it was stricken from record. I...
