  1. Womens interest in male nurses

    Why did I become a nurse instead of marrying one? Well no one asked. But if I could have my pick of men I would go for a nurse. Please reflect: the woman who wants a macho pig will not make a good man happy so move on. I have met a lot of retired fi...

    So someone please tell me what I as a Nurse can do to help.I am a Manhattan based RN and have always had excellent working relationships with Filipino nurses and Have learned a great deal about compassionate patient care from them. Where can I send...
  3. Sentosa 27

    All nurses have to be aware that if they can prosecute Filipino nurses for refusing to be treated like slaves they can do it to all of us. Health care management wants to pay us minimum wage and work us until we drop. In New York City the nurses unio...
  4. Nursing used to be badly paid work. In the US unionization led to improvements in pay. We are still horribly worked to death with hideous patient care loads. We deserve better. But a lot of country's nurses are very badly paid and treated like social...
  5. 8 months until graduation and I want to drop out!!

    Me I hated my teachers in nursing school. They were working overtime to put us down and demoralize us.They were teaching for the wrong reasons. Why you hate nursing or being a nurse tells you what the problem is and how to solve it.
  6. 8 months until graduation and I want to drop out!!

    I felt exactly the way you do towards the end of my nursing program. I got counseling and stuck it out. 20 years later I am so glad I did. There are so many different areas of nursing you can always find one you do not hate. You do not have to work i...
  7. Without knowing anything specific about your health let me suggest you see a good pain specialist first. Didn't I notice you live in Georgia? Emory has great doctors.If you could get the pain under control you might be able to keep your current job (...
  8. I just retired at age 64. Can not lift patients or manage the stress of hospital work any more. So thought I would sign up with some agencies and do the occasional bit of work here and there. I have worked Med/surg, clinics, school nursing, HIV care,...
  9. Question about retired nurses working casual.

    Most retired nurse get board and work a few agency shifts here and there.
  10. Would you recommend nursing to your daughter?

    yes being a nurse is sometimes hard but it has great rewards. Very flexable. Lots of jobs and scedules to chose from. You always know you are doing usefull work. You will never get rich but you will always have a job. New graduates are very different...
  11. Would you recommend nursing to your daughter?

    Your daughter has just paid you a serious compliment. You have been a real role model to her. Recognise it. Don't discourage her but tell her to keep her options open. If she studies hard and takes the classes in college to get into nursing she will ...
  12. Womens interest in male nurses

    A friend of mine who is expecting her second child is very pleased and excited her husband is going to nursing school. Attitudes are changing. I think nursing is evolving out of the female ghetto into a mainstream job and will eventually have a more ...
  13. empathy vs sympathy

    Listen more talk less. Do not judge the person the same way you judge yourself. Ask questions and listen to the ansers. I used to work in AIDS care and had prostitutes, drug addicts, murderers, drug dealers both past and still in the business for pat...
  14. problems with my unit, any ideas?

    Nursing units can be subject to strange and bitchy dinamics. Someone is scapegoating you and getting other nurses to go along with it. Do not take it personally or let it get to you. I have worked with CNNs who did nothing an would not help me with ...
  15. Stay in your program. The good jobs more and more require a BSN. Talk to your husband about the presure you are under. Most schools have counselors who can help a lot. One more year and you have it made. If your tired take a term off if you can.But g...
