    Vanderbilt Nurse Residency 2023

    Several times in my career my fellow nurses have warned me about certain hospitals being awful places to work and I've appreciated that warning. Vanderbilt has a solid history of being a terrible place to work as a nurse. I'd suggest you an...

    VA Clinical Ladder

    I'm not an NP and can't answer your question about what they are looking for to promote to nurse 4 for NPs. But I can tell you for sure nurse 4 is not a permeant pay grade. You can only be a nurse 4 while in a nurse 4 position. If you leave a nurse 4...

    Vanderbilt Nurse Residency 2023

    I'm not frustrated and nothing I said would indicate I am. Your dishonesty is noted.

    Vanderbilt Nurse Residency 2023

    I'm appalled that any nurse would consider working for Vanderbilt after what they have done to nurses.
  5. Your feelings are 100% normal and appropriate. Ide be worried if you didn't feel like that. In my unit we don't really start to considering a nurse a "can handle anything" critical care RN until about their 3rd year. Longer for some.

    I'm Done

    Nothing I said suggested or implied hatred towards the unvaxxed or anyone else and it's dishonest of you to falsely accuse me of hating. You have been consistently dishonest in this discussions, completely fabricating lies several times. ...
  9. There were two studies presented at a Wisconsin AACN conference I attended back in (I think) 2012 that supported smaller is better. Unfortunately I took the information I needed and have no memory of what the studies were called. I do remember that o...
  10. Even though smaller is better when administering vasoactive drips in a PIV, I naturally assumed that the small bore IV would not be a critical patients only access. Two 18ga in place until a central line can be placed and then Ill add a small bore fo...

    Infuriating Code Status Changes

    Did you consider calling the cops and trying to get staff charged with battery? Something I would have definitely considered.

    Infuriating Code Status Changes

    Nearly every advanced directive I've ever encountered was totally useless. Containing useless terms like "persistent vegetative state", or "brain dead". As if your body can't rot away in the ICU in the absence of brain death. My advanced dire...

    Clinical Rotation In COVID Unit

    Traditional nursing students don't do clinical on our covid wards. But some, like those assigned to a primary preceptor in accelerated BSN programs, take whatever patient their preceptor takes. They get fit tested by the hospital and N95 mask are (no...

    Does the federal Covid mandates apply to homecare nurses?

    Babylon Bee is fake news.
