    Are the positions at Baylor real?

    Good for you! I love hearing "I got the job" stories. I'm sure it will be worth it. I applied for a bunch of their new grad positions and seemed to be on the "short-list" for one, but I never got a call and finally received the "other people are better than you" letter. Maybe, it was you! LOL! Seriously though, Congratulations!!!

    NCLEX RESULTS

    Try checking your board of nursing site and see if you're a nurse!

    Got No Job? Come be an RN !

    Apology accepted. And I do agree with you about the media and the nursing school advertisements.

    Taking My NCLEX-RN in the Morning! {{shaking}}

    Hopefully, I can go to sleep tonight! My test is at 0800. I feel good and I'm nervous at the same time. The last 3+ years comes down to this: 75 - 300 questions. No pressure, right? Wish me luck! :uhoh21:

    Fellow student is....a little stinky

    When we received our clinical instructions they said to shower, wear clean uniforms, use non-scented deodorant, and do not use scented lotions or perfumes. Period.

    Plea Rejected in Case of Hepatitis Infections

    OMG! I'm speechless... Lock her up and throw away the key! How did they find out she was doing this?

    Thanks to the decision makers in Albany!

    It's not about the letters. It's about the training. You really do learn something in that extra year it takes to get the RN. Really. I'm sure they are all wonderful nurses and people, but I'm wondering why they never went back to school. Did they really think there was no difference in the RN and LPN except the lettering? That's kind of sad. I mean MD is only two letters, so is MA. No biggie, right? It's just letters. Not. CNA is only letters, too. I've known CNAs who've been CNAs forever. Tons of experience. They're not LPNs. LPNs, really, honest question: Why don't you go back to school for your degree? Will your employer not pay for it? You can't work your schedule around it? You just don't want to? What? As long as you're an LPN, you'll never be an RN, no matter how many years experience you have. It just seems like such a waste.

    So, they're hiring baby RNs in your facility? Nice. I'm sorry about your friend. I'm curious why she didn't get her RN in all those 33 years? I have a friend like this as well. It doesn't make sense to me really. It's just a year of school and with all that experience, it seems she would do really well.

    This is what ticked me off the most about your blog post, MadWife. All I could think of was, "How dare you? Who are you to question my motives, or my passion, or my compassion, or anyone else's here on this board?" And what is it to you, or anybody else, why I chose this profession? I have a lot of reasons for choosing it and I don't have to explain them to you. I'm good at what I do, too, with the knowledge I've acquired to this point. I've got a lot more to learn. Everyday I'll be one day better. Because, you've run into some new nurses who don't live up to your standard, it's not fair for you to paint us all with the same brush. I'll tell you, I've met quite a few old nurses who don't live up to mine. I certainly wouldn't write a post calling ALL old (not in age, but experience) nurses a bunch of burnt out, lazy hacks! So, it's generalizations that will get you into trouble "generally" everywhere. If somebody gets on your nerves, gripe about them. Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. You know some people make generalizations about people based on the color of their skin, or the church the go to, or the fact they don't. You've been a nurse long enough to know you can't do that. At least, not and get away with it. Not in a place like this.

    After working my butt off for over three years for a two year degree, studying my head off to hopefully pass the NCLEX on Monday, and all the sacrifices me, my husband and the rest of my family have put in in order that I may become a nurse - including the very real possibility my husband and I may have to live in separate states for a year or more - if I'm lucky enough to find EMPLOYMENT - I find your post a little offensive and a lot sanctimonious. Good for you. You sound like the perfect nurse. I bet you do it for free, too. Now, where's that test you want me to take? The one that will prove to you my motives meet your expectations?
  13. Better to treat a person who is not in pain for pain, than to deny a patient who is in pain treatment. Kind of like the American justice system. Better a million guilty men go free than one innocent man be put to death.
  14. Correct me if I'm wrong, but sickle cell disease is not a disease of chronic pain, but becomes acutely, extremely, and excruciatingly painful when in sickle cell crisis, usually due to dehydration. Am I right? AND, the disease primarily affects African-Americans who have inherited it. Now that that's out of the way... How do we know how much pain a patient is in? A patient's pain level is whatever they say it is. This is sickle cell crisis. It's not back pain, or whatever pain. This is blood clotting up throughout the body. What is there to talk about? I don't get it. Hydrate and administer pain meds. What am I missing?

    Would you tell her NOT to try to be a nurse?

    That's a short sighted thing to say. Are we back in the day when people needed to stay home and work on the farm, as opposed to going to school, because the family couldn't afford for them to get an education that "worn't gonna do nobody no good no ways"? Come on! School is not a luxury these days. It's a requirement.
