    need ideas for my teenage male patient

    should I get liability insurance?

    Yes. Absolutely. It's about 100 dollars a year or so. I was warned in nursing school to NEVER trust your employer to cover your butt. Corporations will deny responsibility and throw you under the bus if it suits them, especially if it's really an er...

    I didn't return to my old camp because...

    I didn't return to my first camp for a number of reasons, but the big one was that I was expected to pretty much ignore my girls at camp. I wasn't permitted to speak to them more than just a greeting in passing, not allowed to hug them in front of ot...

    It was only 3 weeks

    Many camp nursing jobs ARE only for three weeks, or less. I've met nurses who just spend one week of their paid vacation from their real job to provide their own children with a week of camp. You don't have to talk about the reasons you left your c...

    Walking into a mess

    Am I being picky, or does anyone else get annoyed when they start a shift and the parents don't do any cleaning maintenance? For example, the enteral pump bag still has remnants of the last feed in the bag and the tubing, the suction canister is full...
