    Nurse in Germany Convicted of Killing Patients

    "In a country that highly values privacy, they didn’t see it as their business." My jaw dropped reading that line in the article. I was raised in Germany in the 50's and 60's. It was that very attitude that closed the German peoples eyes and allowed ...

    Nurse sent pics from pts phone to his

    In my opinion no one should want pictures of intimate moments or sensual things of a personal nature made. If you do ever make those kind of pictures - for God's sake don't keep them on a phone that can be lost or stolen. Karma seems to be biting the...

    Lonliness/sadness

    Well I am proud of you. It is h-a-r-d to get through nursing let alone do so while working and keep making A's and B's. You have done a fantastic job and done so on your own. Not many have that determination, stability, let alone confidence. You hav...

    a 22 minute program called ICU

    I have found a lovely series called ICU on youtube and they are very professional and I highly recommend it. This is the only way I thought that I could share it.

    Can I be a nurse with an anxiety disorder?

    Welcome to AN. A great many of us out here in cyber-land that never had anxiety issues before certainly developed full blown panic attacks that started in nursing school. LOL.

    Needing advice and guidance. I can't take noc shift!

    One noise solution that I use are soft foam earplugs. They block out the noises that seem to keep me awake or wake me during sleep such as the AC cutting on and off or whatever. I am an extremely light sleeper. I would recommend a therapist to get th...

    Why are nurse managers jerks?

    Cola89, I do understand the frustration that you are having. I used to feel that way all the time. I would suggest to you what was told to me. Make things better by working your way through the system and becoming the type of manager you would want t...

    Hospitals make people sicker than they have to be

    I cannot imagine being sick and in pain and having to share a hospital room. Having to share a sick room with someone loud with tons of family or a demented screamer would make me jump off the roof. I would rather just go ahead and die. I am an intro...
