  1. First Negative Experience w/a Dr...

    Ok..I have to be honest. You did say something wrong to the physician, and my jaw dropped when I read what you said. When you asked the patient which antibiotic was it...and the doctor said, "It's alright, I know what it is."....THEN you said, "Um,...
  2. Feeling really down.

    I'm not sure if you are married or single, but it's probably something to consider to move out of the area. I would also tweak your resume to show the year and leave off the month that you graduated. Go to every job fair that you can, browse the w...
  3. You cant be fashionable for nursing.

    Every instructor has their 'thing' that they get stuck on...don't let this one set the tone for how things are in a hospital...schools are different. I personally wear my hair to where if I had to put in a foley or an IV, it don't have to touch it to...
  4. Persistent Nurse Recruiters?

    Try to understand that just like nurses have protocols, so do other professions in the hospital. Recruiters are required to make so-many contacts with potential hires, and they have to keep a record of their contacts, what they have done to "lure" th...
  5. Doing away with side rails?

    I have heard something similar that is supposed to take place in our state come January 1st. Even with "padding" on the floor, elderly clients who have osteoperosis will still break bones with the fall, no matter how much padding is placed there. If ...
  6. Pharmacology and math

    Send me a PM...we had an entire class that was over an entire semester dealing with nursing Math. I'll send you the ISBN number. My textbook was excellent, broke everything down, and I bet you could probably pick up one for dirt cheap.
  7. Help I'm being kicked out of nursing school!

    Or screaming..."I'm an addict"
  8. The problem is, the Generation X'ers, like myself, have no memory of classmates actually dying of these things. However, our parents do. It's easy to dismiss them based on "personal philosophy" when you have never actually seen a child practically c...
  9. RN-BSN or Frontier Bridge Classes

    Don't forget to look at the tuition. I found Frontier to be far more expensive to do their "bridge" classes vs getting a BSN and possibly going in BSN prepared...just no question as to how it compared expense-wise.
  10. Kicked out of school for being pregnant!?

    190% illegal. Pregnancy is considered a short-term disability and is protected as such. This not only includes employment situations but educational settings as well. They are required to make "reasonable accomodations" just like everyone else. No s...
  11. I failed out of nursing school my last semester....help!

    This varies college by college. BSN courses are more likely to transfer however, ADN courses rarely do.
  12. This is a child that died of chicken pox...what is unusual was that this wasn't an infant, but a 12-year old. Article didn't say if the child was immunized or not, which to me, was a pretty important detail that was missed. http://www.local6.com/heal...
  13. male nurses refusing to do certain treatments?

    I don't see it as an option for the male student or nurse to refuse it based on gender, but obviously, a patient has the right to refuse it. However, if a patient is willing, to me, a male nurse should be treated no differently than any female nurse ...
  14. Second opinion, how to ask doctor for?

    On a personal level, I don't ask a doctor for a second opinon..I just get one. I also never get one from the group the first doctor was in, b/c another doctor will most likely not go against the medical opinion of another physician in that same group...
  15. Discovered a breech baby for 1st time

    ....and a great example of...everything is fine for home births, as long as everything goes textbook.
