  1. hours of sleep you get per night in RN school?

    I don't sleep a lot anyway, I've always been a victim of insomnia. But my sleep patterns were completely jacked in nursing school. I'd come home from class or clinicals and sleep for an hour or two, the get up study, do care plans, etc, for about 6 h...
  2. Return to work after lateral meniscus repair

    A basic tear like that you're looking at probably 6-8 weeks. And when I went back I didn't go back to the ER for 2 months after that, I did med surg so minimize the stress on my knee. Depends on your personal recovery really. I suffered a knee injury...
  3. MD ordered placebo for pain PRN~would you give it?

    Ultram's not a placebo for pain relief. And there have been cases of people becoming addicted to Ultram. It's less likely to be abused than narcs but shouldn't be used as a placebo. And for me personally I prefer Ultram over narcs because narcs make ...
  4. What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby?

    I'm being an insomniac and since I'm anxiously awaiting the birth of my first child, I've been reading the L&D threads for a while. This thread should be entitled what NOT to name your baby. I'm going to refer people here when they look at me fun...
  5. An OB's Birth Plan

    If this is a true statement then my fiancee would have to do some serious convincing if she really wanted this man delivering our baby. The idea of a misogynistic OB delivering my child and handling my pregnant fiancee just makes me uncomfortable.
  6. An OB's Birth Plan

    My first question is why didn't he discuss this with you on your first visit? Most of this type of thing was discussed with my fiancee and me when we had our first appointment with the OB that would be delivering our baby (she was living in another s...
  7. what to do?

    It sounds like the program you're talking about requires that you're in school to aquire an RN or an advanced nursing degree. I'm not sure but being that it has requirements on testing and getting recomendations from nursing instructors. I'd stop tra...
  8. The mentality of your ex husband is very different from what the OP is dealing with in her husbands worries. I was very much exposed to the kind of mentality your ex husband has through various male family members and actually had a touch of it mysel...
  9. MD ordered placebo for pain PRN~would you give it?

    I'm with the majority in saying I wouldn't give it. I actually had a patient who was a drug seeker hit me because he thought I was giving him a placebo pill. And to whoever had the orders to narcan the pt until family makes them a DNR that doctor...
  10. Scrubs is about the closest scripted show you'll get actually hospital life, even though I'm not a huge Scrubs fan. I personally LOVE House, and it can be accurate at times as well. I also love Grey's Anatomy but most of the scandalous behavior seen ...
  11. But I LIKE My Colleagues

    I actually have liked my co workers at every hospital I've worked. A few months back I did have an issue with one, as some of you might remember, but that was due to her behavior and she ended up getting fired. But other than that I've never really h...
  12. Tell your husband he watches too much television lol. Hospital work is very rarely anything like what it's protrayed on television and he's stereotyping based on fiction. My fiancee jokes with me about it because up until I met her a lot of the olde...
  13. Wrongful termination? Age discrimination?

    I'm very much on the younger end of nurses at 25 (though I've been a working nurse for almost 5 years) but at 45 you're really not that old for a nurse. I've seen new grads that were in your age bracket. Did you have any issues with co workers or yo...
  14. Should I go for LVN or RN

    Are you doing a BSN or an AND program? I know a buddy of is on the last of his pre reqs for his AND and he hasn't had it take chemistry. So if it's an AND maybe you could look at other programs in your area and see if your credits would transfer to o...
  15. what to do?

    I don't know exactly how much credit card debt you have but have you tried calling the credit card company and seeing about getting your interest rate reduced? This could lower your payments and help you out. I personally don't carry much credit card...
