  1. UPDATE In this video, Janie Garner from ShowMe Your Stethoscope who attended the arraignment gives an account of the proceedings as well as a recap of the situation. A couple of things stand out: The TN BON has not taken any disciplinary measures against RaDonda's license The ANA posted a statement on their website which includes the following: RaDonda Vaught Pleads Not Guilty
  2. In the news today following the arraignment, it was stated that the TN BON, after a nine-month long investigation, found no reason to take disciplinary action against RaDonda’s license. I will be posting another video in this thread that gives more information about this. Merging this discussion with another thread about the arraignment was started yesterday.
  3. UPDATE About 3 dozen nurses showed up at the arraignment wearing scrubs. Radonda introduced her supporters stating, "This is my family." Vaught entered a not guilty plea and is already out on bail. News sources reported that $43,000 has been raised for her legal defense.
  4. A group of nurses plans to appear in their scrubs at Vaught's arraignment hearing on February 20th show their support. Included in this group is Janie Harvey Garner, founder of Show Me Your Stethoscope. For those who are interested in showing their support by attending the arraignment, here are the details: When? Wednesday, February 20 @ 9:00 AM Where? Justice A. A. Birch Building 408 2nd Ave N, Court Room 6D Nashville, TN 37201 Judge: Jennifer Smith What is Arraignment? Once the accused is represented by counsel, the more formal part of the arraignment, the reading of the charges, takes place. The accused is expected to enter a plea: usually guilty, not guilty, or no contest. The no-contest plea means that the accused is not admitting guilt but will not contest the charges. What is the verdict going to be??? In the following video, Janie Harvey Garner talks more about the arraignment process.

    2019 Nursing Salary Survey

    Participate In Our 2019 allnurses Nursing Salary Survey In February 2018, almost 17,000 members and readers in the United States and Canada holding an active nursing license participated in our allnurses online salary survey. The data was shared with readers via several interactive images. The results were surprising to some as they were able to compare not only the salaries across the states and Canada, but also the purchasing power based on cost of living, taxes, etc. It's now time for the 2019 Salary Survey and we hope you will participate. The survey will only take 5 minutes to complete. Salary is a definite factor for those looking for a job. It also plays a big factor in retaining nurses. But there are other factors that may impact retention rates even more. Work environment, safe nurse-patient staffing ratios, and job satisfaction may be more important to the nurse who is trying to decide whether or not to leave. In the 2017 Salary Survey, in order to look at nursing shortages across the country, we obtained data regarding nurses leaving the workforce: why and when. In 2018 we obtained detailed information about nurse/patient staffing ratios. This year, in addition to obtaining salary data, we are again seeking information about nurse/patient staffing ratios. Have they improved, gotten worse, or remained the same as last year? We are also going to look at career satisfaction as well as job satisfaction. How have the changes over the years affected your outlook on the Nursing profession now and in years to come? Your feedback is important. Join thousands of nurses who will be providing updated information about salaries, staffing ratios, and career and job satisfaction. Share this survey with all the nurses in your network. The more participants we have, the louder our voice. Your participation in this survey is important. The more questions you answer, the more complete our data will be. This online survey takes about 5 minutes or less to complete. If you hold an active nursing license and live/work in the United States, U.S. territories, or Canadian Provinces, we would like for you to participate in this year's nursing salary survey. Please answer the questions as they relate to your primary nursing job. If you have more than one nursing job, you may fill out an additional survey using a different IP address. WE WANT YOUR INPUT!

    OMGosh! Did I really lose all my "likes"?

    @akulahawkRN I'm glad you are exploring the site and finding new features that will make your experience more enjoyable. I know this is frustrating. Think of it like buying a new car. We know we want a new car. We love all the new features, but now to figure out how to use them. But once we get more comfortable in remembering where the various buttons are and can use them without even thinking, our new ride is much more enjoyable and you wondered what you ever did without the luxury of heated/cooling seats.
