  1. Understanding the Risk of Firearms: Suicide vs. Homicide

    Actually, no.
  2. Understanding the Risk of Firearms: Suicide vs. Homicide

    Thank you for this information! It's good to understand how the process really works.
  3. Understanding the Risk of Firearms: Suicide vs. Homicide

    I don't believe it did.
  4. Understanding the Risk of Firearms: Suicide vs. Homicide

    I hesitate to participate in any political discussion, but I do think history is always relevant. If you study the rise of the Third Reich, and the gradual occupation of other countries by the Nazi regime, you will find confiscation of legally owned ...
  5. The Grinch of allnurses.com

    I haven't read the whole thread, so forgive me if this is repetitive. It has taken me a long time, but I have learned to (mostly) opt out of the holiday madness. The gifts I feel I MUST buy (grandchildren , for instance) I buy on Amazon and utilize ...

  11. New Nurse, morality question.

    Forgive me, I haven't read all the responses. I just want to say to the OP, leave this particular situation alone. When you ARE employed and working under your own license, follow your own ethics. If someone asks you to sign for a waste you did not w...
  12. Excessive Absenteeism in the Nursing Profession

    Might be bad for patient outcomes.
  13. Excessive Absenteeism in the Nursing Profession

    My husband works for a telephone company, and they have "personal days" with no questions asked.
  14. 56 With Multiple Back Surgeries Wants to Become an RN

    Entering the job force as a new grad RN, it is unrealistic (and maybe unfair) to expect to be hired into an administrative position ahead of others who have worked bedside and have RN experience. The automatic assumption of discrimination also smack...
