    APN nursing

    To edit some terms, used APS instead of APN Acute Pain Services Rectify the question to the following What are the services you provide in your hospital as an APS nurse? To clear the debate, what do you think I am not a specialist as an acute pain service nurse? The APS nurse asked me through my orientation program about the services we provide; my answer was Pain management and post OP care related to the pain. The APS nurse told me I am wrong; the correct answer should be epidural, PCA, Non-pharmaceutical, and Multimodal analgesia. my argument was that what you mentioned categorized under pain management per the definition if you want to present services should be by description, not the types of pain management as your question was not formulated correctly Any input would be appreciated and again sorry if wrong section

    I apologize for writing a hard paragraph. English is not the primary language. I will try my best not to make that mistake as I am learning to type gradually. In addition, I am new to blogging.

    Totally agree with different geographic results from a different point of view. The way paid parental leave for each child to ensure two-aspect as a child definitely need both parents and promoting equal pay are appreciated. Well not necessary as an equal footing than having one profession dominate over the other in providing health care service. In my country, it is more dominant to doctors as nurses can provide recommendations for patient care; thus, nurses commonly pretend they do not know. Still, through orientation, I ask seniors they know about the case and everything, but again they told do not to argue with the doctor and suggest recommendations unless he permits me to.

    Every action has its own consequences applying such a rule definitely play a role in cultural subjugation of women.

    I was not aware of the US having nursing as a most trusted and respected profession, to be honest. Well, about the workplace and sexual assasult we have, there will be fine if assaulted health care workers. Regarding discrimination regarding pay benefits basis on gender, many females solely support their family, but ideally, men should do that. Therefore, the law encourages such actions and not encouraging females to take that responsibility. maybe that is the reason they did such a law And I appreciate your advice. I changed my nickname. Many thanks

    Well, good for you. I heard that the US is more respected than our county. I had an experience that I give patient education about his condition. Then I was told not to educate the patient. Only doctors do that as if they raised concern. You might get in trouble. Besides, the mentality of doctors in our country thinking they are superior to nurses is one of the issues we are dealing with. As years going less and less action of this kind occurs; hopefully, we can work as a team one day.

    In the eyes of the law in Kuwait, women and men have slight differences in salary allowance since men are the ones providing for a family, so the increase of allowance will be for married men so they can rent department. He is the one paying, so that is why they gave men increases in those allowances aside for these kinds of increases. As religions are involved and regulated, the law of Kuwait is so kind of complicated, and I not much depth in those laws, to be honest. As for that guy who brought up the joke of touching private parts, he meant the patient wherever he liked it or not to be touched, not the nurse as some people get prideful toward nurses but not knowing their destination might end up at the hands of nurses. As he already had a high position in oil company sector and end of the day, preceptor and I told him Mr to remove your pant and to administer an enema for endoscopy preparation per local policy patient should receive an enema. His reaction was priceless that day, and he said, sadly is it necessary? If yes, go ahead do your job; then He told me that joke.

    Nursing Profession Reputation

    Hello, Good day True that many factors affect the influence of the practice of nursing. I practice nursing in Kuwait. Regarding the reputation, I meant by the view of the nursing profession by society. When I ask people I know about joining nursing, they say no way I work that profession despite respecting and appreciating nurses. Supplementing that regularly, patients appreciate my work, but the community view remained the same fewer people tend to join that profession. I asked for the reason. The answer I got is the work environment is not suitable. I was told one time by a Senior engineer a joke, and it was no matter how positional you get, the nurse one day will boss you and touch your private parts, and you can not argue with that 😅 I agree with you that almost we are the center for all professions like we are the heart to vitalize all organs to function mean other professions like what you said, an engineer can not get much done without health. no need to apologize, and I appreciate your concern over me being a less-valued member of society Again the point of making this topic of hearing the view of others about the reputation of nursing as a profession and why it is not respected as other professions like engineering and other more valued professions.

    Greetings readers I have created this topic about nursing profession reputation. My interest is to know nurses' opinions about why the nursing profession's reputation is not improving? I would start first. From my observation and experience, my experience is insufficient to provide a cohesive opinion since I only joined nursing in December 2019 and am still on my training program provided by the facility. That being said, sharing my opinion many might agree on, and many might disagree, which is fine to have your opinion questioned and be enlightened by others experience that being said, I get to my opinion. Professionally. If we examined the reputation of engineering ( computer, mechanical, etc.) and other professions on we found out that society respect them more than the nursing profession my opinion is that due to the fact the influence of that profession on society shown and change people lives and people tend to appreciate those changes happened fro the outcome of working on that profession, in contrast, nursing true that we save lives but the understanding of the work and interaction from nurses to society less than engineering and others profession not necessary direct way but it can be indirect as well through product and services they provided for the society if we could overcome that issue, the work environment will be way better for nurses. The market will value nurses more; therefore, salary will be increased as a society, and the market knows what profession. Do you agree with my opinion? If no, mind if you share your opinion
