  1. OR attitudes...

    #1 rule in the OR; don't take things personally. One of my jobs as the OR nurse is to protect the patient, staff, time and equipment. So if I see anyone that even looks like they may compromise any of those things, I will bluntly tell them to stop ...
  2. New to Periop Services! HELP

    Join AORN http://www.AORN.org, and also check out http://www.outpatientsurgery.net. Both are great resources.
  3. Army Female Engagement Teams/Cultural Support Team

    Hi ladies, I'm not with a FET/CST, I'm currently with a FST in ABAD (Kunar Province). If you guys are coming through this area and need anything (med supplies, personal hygiene items, toys for local kids etc etc) please drop me a line or swing by the...
  4. What's the craziest getup you've ever seen?

    88years old and mowing the lawn??? You go, girl! LOL.
  5. Actual officers?

    Currently out on a small FOB in "Absurdistan". No days off; on duty 24/7, but have lots of down time.
  6. Quick question for Army nurses

  8. CMA posing as nurse...?

    All I'm going to say in ref. to the CMA posting is that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Generally speaking, CMA/MAs have an incomplete comprehension of pathophysiology, pharmacology, anatomy and physiology, and therefore tend to underestima...
  9. Fraternization (non-nursing question)

    I would be very, very carful. You could gain a lot of unwanted attention from the military intel guys, and possibly lose you clearance, and even go to jail. Are you sure of the intentions of the foreign soldier? You may be one of his/her intel target...
  10. rent vs buy

    The military will keep your stuff in storage for a couple of months. Check with Defense Personal Property System (DPS) aka. JPPSO to see how long they will store it. This way you get a bit more time to find an area you like. Good luck.
  11. Hands breaking out

    Try "Bag Balm"-it's absolutely wonderful. I have used it on everything from diaper rashes to dry skin. Bag Balm
  12. Need insight on critical nursing.

    This is a great site to learn a few ICU tricks: index
  13. As far as I know, the various nurse practice acts does not have an extreme difference from state to state. And either way, knowing the local NPA is an individual professional responsibility. We all take the same NCLEX and specialty certification exam...
  14. A nursing license should be just like a drivers license; licensed in TX, but still able to drive in all 50 states. This would make life so much easier. If the compact state agreement went nation wide, this could be everyones reality. Right now, only...
  15. I have no problem with anyone being in the profession for the money. Trust me, if I wasn't making decent money I would be gone! Screw the "calling", it's a bunch of baloney the establishment wants us to believe. I'm all about the pay. And yes, I'm a ...
