    RN's required to be sitters???

    Not because they are too busy, but because they know they can take advantage of you in that sense. That’s one of those situations that you need to speak up and advocate for yourself and not take no for an answer.

    Updating address on PA BON

    Not sure if this helps or not, from the PALS / PA BON website: Name Change/Address Change/Duplicate license You can request a name or address change online at www.pals.pa.gov. Login with your User ID and Password and click the eye icon located on the left panel in your dashboard labeled "Personal Details." Be prepared to electronically upload a copy of one of the following name change verification documents: marriage certificate, divorce decree which indicates the retaking of your maiden name, passport, other “legal” document indicating the retaking of a maiden name.

    Site Changes

    Also had difficulty this morning finding how to sign in from the homepage. Ended up googling "allnurses sign in" to get there.
  4. No, absolutely not at all because it makes no sense. It is a balloon. That a patient didn't want anymore. A balloon.
  5. Is this a serious post? All snark aside, genuinely asking. You said yourself the patient didn't want it anymore. What are you expecting?
  6. Your lack of understanding from the other side of healthcare as providers is very clear, and is turning to the ignorant side since it’s been pointed out to you and you’re choosing to ignore it. At a very basic level, there are legalities in play here that obligated the provider to override HIPAA. The fact that you don’t understand that on a basic level will make it very hard to continue in the conversation in a valid way.
  7. In all my years on AN, this might be at the top of some of the worst advice I’ve ever read and it’s scary.
  8. BUT if we can save supplies and bed space and resources for people who would need to be hospitalized, such as yourself in this example, by simply wearing a mask at all times for a temporary period of time and not going out as much, why wouldn’t we?!

    Future NP

    It all depends on where you work ultimately. Some wear scrubs, some where business clothes with a lab coat, it just varies. I know you acknowledged you have a long way to go; I would just recommend you make sure you're also researching more about what being an NP entails beyond just attire.

    I agree to meet with an attorney to be on the safe side. Especially if the agency has already paid fees for certain things in regards to your license and visa, etc.

    New LPN/Agency work

    I believe New Mexico added a Safe Harbor law last year too. But yea, that option is not available in almost all states.
  12. There are now TWO pediatric hospitals within TMC that will be accepting adult patients (both covid positive and covid negative) due to lack of capacity within the medical center.
  13. Without a doubt, I can’t wait to safely travel the world again. My husband and I traveled everything other weekend, whether it was a small road trip or a flight across the country, and traveled internationally 3-4 times a year. Now being stuck in Texas of all places, I’m very much looking forward to getting back to that normal once it’s safe for everyone.

    Farewell Esme - In Loving Memory

    Such a loss for us all, but so glad she no longer suffers. She will be missed.
  16. If she’s out in public, at the grocery store, etc without a mask on...then yes, she’s ignorant. Especially for a healthcare provider. Now if she doesn’t go anywhere outside of her house except for the doctors appointments, then there’s nothing ignorant about her not donning a mask.
