    I'm going to guess that she's allergic to her partner's emissions.

    Is nursing is not anything but a glorified CNA position?

    Sure it is. And all CNAs should be able to petition to take the NCLEX. I mean, come on, if you can take a blood pressure and wipe a bottom, you can surely do everything LPNs and RNs do. Heck, We should even be able to practice medicince, since really...

    First Code

    Unless you drew up the dilaudid and left it in the pt's room, I don't see how it was your fault. Patients do stupid things. We've had cardiac patients snorting cocaine in their room, patients with PICC lines go out to "smoke" and inject themselves wi...

    is 3rd shift inevitable for new nurses?

    Around here (KY), most new grads start out on nights. Once you get use to staying up all night and sleeping during the day, it isn't bad. I'm currently on days right now, but will likely be going back to nights soon. As for staying in shape on nig...

    Private Loan Debt Stressed Out New Grad! HELP!

    I'm sorry you're having such a rough time. First, I would recommend taking a deep breath and remind yourself that this too shall pass. You will eventually find a job and get into a better financial situation. Next, call your loan companies, ask ab...

    Do you wear an undershirt???

    I usually just wear a white men's ribbed unershirt tank top. They are pretty thin, but provide me with enough of a feeling of having something on.
  8. There was a post there originially. It appears that the OP went back and deleted most of it for some reason.
  9. It is great that you are so optimistic. I think most people who enter into nursing (or any profession for that matter), go into school with a bright outlook. Then you start your actual nursing classes. Nursing school is tough. Very tough. And not jus...
  10. It depends. I have traded patients if it is someone that I know outside of work. However, I have also had to care for a few coworkers (darned HMO). They really can't get assigned a nurse that doesn't know them, because in our hospital, everybody kno...

    prioritizing nclex question help!

    I agree with the two previous posters. You want the first patient to remain on bedrest first and foremost. Also, she wouldnt just be on contact isolation precautions, there would be radiation precautions as well (the answer didnt give that option, wh...

    Goodbye food pyramid; Welcome "My plate"

    Cali- the concept is that is what your plate should look like at each meal. I think a great strategy would be to have plates made with the "my plate" design on them. Then, just fill up the appropriate part of your plate. All your protein should fit i...

    Pearson Vue Trick - Does it Work Every Time? Part 2

    Does the pearsonvue website show "delivery sucessful?" I had 75 q's, finished in about 40 minutes, and they didnt hold my results. I went home, 15 mins after the test, it said "delivery successful, so I tried the PVT and it worked- I found out yester...
  14. I'm a new graduate nurse, but I have worked for the hospital where I'm interviewing as a CNA for 2 and 1/2 years. I am fairly confident that I will be offered the position, and I was hoping to be able to negotiate an extra $2/hour on my salary. I kno...

  16. Ok, so I oficially took my NCLEX 48 hours ago. I need my results dangit! anyone else have it take longer than 48 hours?
