    they pay me one dollar extra....laughable I know:chuckle. The thing is about the older nurse is that I have been here 8 months and I am now the RN on med surg that has been here the longest thank you! It is very stressful and I dont think that I should have to deal with it at all. I have learned so much, but it is getting tuff the more and more i keep myself in the situation. my complaints, as well as the complaints of my coworkers, about us being shorthanded is not being considered what so ever. I dont like to be in charge of anybody. I like to do my thing and taken care of my patients. thanks! Thank you guys for your support. :heartbeat

    Calling a Code

    Definitely not at the hospital work at...they will hound you for as long as they see fit. It is a small town hospital and if you mess up they will joke about it for months to come

    Calling a Code

    I was just thinking that the aide should have been notified on who was a DNR. Thank you

    quit first RN job after 3 months?

    If you think that it is not right for you...then it isnt. Its your license and you do what you feel like you need to do.

    Calling a Code

    SO... I was coming onto shift the other night and getting report and all of a sudden a code is called to one of our rooms. I had not been on so did not know who was in that room. But one of the other nurses knew who it was and ran out the door. All of a sudden the nurse screams that she is a DNR not to touch her. I walk out in the hall and EVERYONE was there the doc, a ton of other nurses. Anyways...come to find out the Aide called the code and had no idea about the DNR status. Our unit looked like a bunch of morons. My question is...aren't the aides suppose to get the nurse in a situation like that?

    Leaving before finishing

    If the work is something that I started...like admitting a patient or something of that nature then i think that it is my duty to finish it. i never leave unless i know that my stuff was done. I have stayed two hours passed my time to go to finish stuff that was unfinished.
  10. we only have 3 RNs on night shift now...our patient load is usually 4 or 5 but there are some nights 7 has come into play. i wont take any more than that...too dangerous and it is my license on the line!!!!

    Congrats and I would call the nursing recruiter and tell her the situation that you are in and tell her that you would love to be there and meet everyone but you unfortunately have class and clinicals to attend
