  1. I know what you mean OP. Im a new nurse about to start soon. While I was working as a tech I came across people that I know on numerous occasions. Mostly visitors of ppl that was on our floor or another floor. Many times these people were so far from my past that they didn't even recognize me. Other times I wasn't even assigned to them, so nothing to worry about there. I have wondered this same thing too. What if I'm assigned a person I know whether I got along with them or not? Would this be some sort of conflict? I know some people are private and would not like someone they know even if it was someone they liked, knowing their private medical information. Hmmm I guess management shouldn't having a problem switching the assignment. Anything to make the patient comfortable. I can't imagine this happening a lot though. What are the odds that you are going to always get assigned to the patient that you know that just so happen to be on your floor.
  2. Im a new nurse and at my hospital, the union and hospital has been going back and forth forever and a day now about the new contract and the hospital proposal to cut nurses pay. I would really like to know if unions are really effective and at the end of the day if management go ahead and do what they really want to do anyway? I ask because this back and forth between management has been going on for a really long time and it seems like management isn't budging.

    How do you get that CONFIDENCE

    I'm a new grad who will be starting my orientation in shortly. It still hasn't hit me yet that I am a nurse:eek: How did you get that confidence needed to survive in the first year?

    Can you live a luxury lifestyle as a nurse?

    That is not my definition of luxury. To me that is comfortable. I believe being comfortable is quite possible with a nurses salary depending on experience, how many hours you put in, going salary in the state you live in etc...
  7. Typically how many days from an interview that went well is it reasonable for you to hear something back?

    Patients who stay on the phone when you come...

    Those are tho ones that disturb me the most. They have the nerve to give you attitude as if you are bothering them. They are in the hospital to get well but our presence is bothering them, how ridiculous is that. One thing I've learned from being in this profession and being exposed people from all walks of life, is that there really are some interesting characters in this world.

    Would you ever own a motorcycle? YES or NO?

    No never. I know someone who died in a crash just last week
  10. in their room to provide some form of care. Who else has an issue with this? It's as if they are in the hospital for us to take care of them, but we are on their personal time.

    I think I just failed NCLEX for the first time

    Try to relax, most people think they failed after they leave testing. Try the pearson "trick" . Might help to put your mind at ease until your official results are available. https://allnurses.com/nclex-discussion-forum/pearsonvue-trick-part-403722.html

    Pearsonvue Trick - Does it Work Every Time? Part 2

    Ok I got the good popup but steal freaking out because im unsure If I answered the yes/no questions properly. I answered no to all 3. But wasn't certain if I should have said no since technically I did take the exam.
