  1. Nursing Is No Longer Worth It

    I'd Like To Tell You A Story I've been a member of Allnurses for nearly a decade. It's a little surreal to contemplate that amount of time but I vividly recall writing posts in the pre-nursing students section pleading for help in Anatomy and Phy...
  2. Nursing Is No Longer Worth It

    Truth. 100%. We don't get ceremonies. We get pizza parties. Raise your bread stick in honoring Nancy...
  3. Nursing Is No Longer Worth It

    I'm a guy. I'm in the 10% of nursing. I'm a guy.
  4. Partner doesn't like that I'm a nurse

    This. Time to move on. You need a partner that accepts and adapts to you. They must accept the harsh reality that your job is dangerous and inadvertently increases their risk. I know they are out there. My wife and I are both nurses. We both "get it....
  5. Leaving bedside for health concerns

    You health trumps your profession. Find a nursing gig that's safer. Try outpatient ambulatory nursing for instance.
  6. If you want friends, go make friends. There will be people. Tell them your name. Have good conversations. Don't overshare or be the super overzealous annoying excited one. Be calm, approachable and friendly but avoid being the "weird one." There are ...
  7. To me, it was zero benefit EXCEPT resume material. I pay the 100/year and I get to put it on my resume. It's a worthy investment to stick out amongst the piles of resumes that don't have it. Yeah, the organization will you tell you "become more" "bec...
  8. How do I find primary care RN position?

    Under normal circumstance, pre-covid, you have to change the language in which you search. Try "ambulatory nurse jobs" rather than "primary care nurse jobs" then narrow your search down and find primary care clinics that are posting. You be hard pres...
  9. Remote positions

    Remote case manager comes to mind (if you find some that would take a newb). Look into the big insurance companies. Some hospitals provide this as well. Also, look into ambulatory cancer clinics. You do a remote telephone triage gig for the clinic. L...
  10. This nurse lacks confidence and/or points to lack of experience if they need to "research" their assignment for 45 minutes. I used to do this as a newb nurse. This is how it should go: Be punctual. Show up 10-15 minutes early. Poop. Pee. Snack. Obta...
  11. You don't need to divulge the type of patients you're taking care of. I can't...quite...remember... What's that thing? HI.. HIP...HIPOH? HIPPITY?! AH...HIPAA You're a nurse and leave it at that or be extremely vague. No one is entitled to know what ...
  12. How to balance out working heavy hours and having a relationship?

    She needs to find a person that adapts to her. Not the other way around. If she's obsessed with work, great. That's her choice and her significant other needs to respect that from day one. She should be VERY frank about that on the first date. First ...
  13. Please Tell Me I'm Not Alone

    You're going to get even more creative in the roles you're applying to. Remote nursing jobs, telehealth, telephone triage, per diem roles, travel nursing, travel a few hours away, or pick a non-nursing side gig. Start an online business. So many opti...
  14. Nursing for Intimate care for men

    I'm a dude. I don't care either way. I care about skills, knowledge, and approachability (all of which can happen whether a person has a penis or a vagina).
  15. Defeated.

    Nurses are expendable. Travel nurses are extremely expendable and let go for the most petty crap imaginable. Traveling right now pays BIG TIME. Some places >6K per week. Keep trying to find an assignment. You've hit an unlucky streak. People lack ...
  16. Pharmacists admitted to BSN Program

    Don't do it. Wait until you find a pharmacist job.
  17. This is easy to make a snap judgement about. This deserves a root cause analysis.
  18. 5th e-Cigarette Death Reported As Illnesses Double

    I remember when this hit the headlines. Then Covid...
  19. Nurses Furious As Dentist to Lead Nursing Research Institute

    I think it should be open to nurses to apply but not a requirement. Leadership positions are different. Having nursing experience would be helpful but not necessary. There is other valuable experience besides nursing. I see non-clinical, non-nursing ...
  20. Webcams in Nursing Homes?

    If it's in their room, and completely away from areas where care of other residents is held, let them have it. It's their home. They pay good money to have that room. Where are we NOT on a camera these days?
  21. 6,500 Nurses to Go Out on Strike 09/20/19 in Four States

    A wasted effort. 5 days isn't near long enough to make a difference. This will get short lived headlines and cost the system millions in travel contracts. Hospitals are too powerful and too wealthy and can resist to pay the true worth of nurses and p...
  22. Tele . . . What? The Evolution of Using Telehealth in Patient Care

    Telehealth. Cost effective. Efficient. Most ambulatory nursing care can be provided over the phone and through eMAR messages. Makes come sense.
  23. 1. Freedom of speech in public places. But, use your judgement. We're all accountable for our mouth and even the future unintended consequence of using it we didn't foresee. 2. You have less freedom of speech in your workplace. Policies and such. 3. ...
  24. Trading scripts for Meth

    You understand this just fine. Addiction and mental disease. Simple answer here.
  25. Nurse Accused of Taking Naked Photos of Nursing Home Patients

    1. Loss of license indefinitely. Yes, obviously. 2. Jail time. Yes, obviously. Any nurse that lacks the moral compass to tell them how wrong this truly is deserves both of aforementioned punishments.
