    Stupid hurts.

    OK all y’all, time to lighten it up. Disclaimer: this is kinda an ED thing but all disciplines are more than welcome to join. Title says it all. I’ll start. Alcohol + jammed lawnmower = date with orthopedic surgeon. Yeah, stupid hurts.

    In my opinion, the cen is really a "what's the doctor gonna do?" test. I recommend mark boswell's prep material. When i studied for it years ago, i used his book (original home made version) but his stuff is now on youtube. Also spend the $ on the bcen's own practice test. It'll give you the look & feel if the actual test. Good luck, don't change your answers.

    I'm in resp distress from simply trying to wade through that post. I'm getting pretty anxious, distress getting worse. Sure wish there was a med that would calm me down so i could breathe easier...

    Nurse Creates The Mother Lode of All Advance Directives.

    Very funny. I think i'll draft something similar to go along with chest tattoo that reads, in 2" letters: Stop! Walk Away!

    Will I be looked down upon?

    Does your manager already know your plans? If yes, then it's very possible that you will be treated differently and not in a good way. It's not even out of the realm of possibility that you get let go during orientation so they can cut their losses. Your plan is not favorable to the hospital's roi. If they do not know your plans, do not tell anyone and wait until you need the references.

    Avengingspirit, I learned about research methods and how to understand a study in my BSN program. Where did you learn how to interpret scientific studies in order to refute their findings? Just wondering.
  9. In it, it's known as the id10t error. Very similar to pebcak issues (problem exists between chair and keyboard). They've been around for decades. As for drama, i follow the advice of that great philosopher joe walsh and just walk away.

    Do you overspend on luxury items as a nurse?

    Jewish gramma 1: oy, i have good news and bad news. Jewish gramma 2: and what's that? 1: the bad news is my grandson is gay. 2: so what's the good news? 1: he's marrying a doctor! Before anybody gets the knickers in a knot, i'm a kinsman who answers questions with questions.

    While doing your er rotation, do not say "but that's not how they taught us" in front of the pt.

    Nursing Supervisor is Inappropriate

    One more suggestion. Can you surreptitiously activate "record" on your phone when you see him approaching? If you can, that's tremendous ammunition.

    Now THAT'S a lab result

    Too much story and no labs. Please remember the rules - result and dead or alive, no details. My thread, my circus, my monkeys.

    Nursing Supervisor is Inappropriate

    Report him now. Document everything in an email to yourself as suggested above. On a side note, i can't believe your coworkers (especially the guys) let him get away with this. My female coworkers are my sisters and anyone who acts inappropriately with them will have a come to jesus meeting.
