  1. What is up with these Sickle Cell Patients?!

    With emphasis on your question regarding pain management and the epidemiological picture of pediatric Sickle Cell disease and management. the following link should be of interest. http ://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12662119
  2. If people make me feel bad, I've been bullied

    I think this whole campaign to convince people people are crying bully prematurely was started by a bunch of bullies. And people who use sarcasm, eye-rolling, gossiping, information hoarding, disregarding your needs/concerns are just doing the soc...
  3. Ethical question-WWYD?

    This is a very good discussion I worked in W. Africa a no. of years ago and was on call for emergencies 24/7. One night I received a call where a US citizen, a woman had eaten something in a local restaurant, was experiencing a possible anaphylaxt...
  4. understanding Insulin and Heparin Dosing pls help

    Hi - as a new nurse medications can be confusing. Not wanting to preach but You need to review the medications, actions, types of vials and doses and how they are calculated. Try the following below; When you can sit in a quiet area and Get hold of...
  5. I see where the disconnect comes from. As i said,many employers around here request official transcripts from the schools attended. So yeah,when the employers do that,they can most certainly see if the school attended has a B and M campus attached to...
  6. Student nursing in the cardiac Icu

    This was a poor first job experience. Working 4 12 hr nights as a new grad will decreased your focus, increase fatigue and affect job performance. The interview is bizarre and actually appears to more of an exercise as decisions had already been made...
  7. Nurses eat their young during report?

    HELP!!!! This is my first nursing job on a med/surg floor. I have a meeting with my manager because other nurses are saying I don't know my patients and suspect I'm not doing my assessments. The real problem is that I have been put down so many ti...
  8. I shouldn't be a nurse

    Experience comes in many different forms. This is one of them. Hang in there!! Big HUGS - and like so many other posts, ask for counseling to assist you through this period of grief and anxiety. Just remember there are some key learning points fro...
  9. There is nothing wrong with the email. Nursing code of dress is an age old topic and although Nursing students today are not expected to follow a strict uniform code, they still need to convey a sense of professionalism, representative of the profess...
  10. Actually, that's another topic and thread altogether. This thread focuses on whether or not consideration is given to the type of school that you graduated from and whether or not an online education is viewed as inferior. Yes, that is likely. Ho...
  11. Some considerations during this discussion are; 1. In what specific light are GPA results examined when hiring a nurse- her level of physical competency vis-a-vis her academic background? 2. How can this practice be justifiable when other profess...
  12. I think that online education today is very much part of learning. There are many top notch universities with excellent programs. I also see a need for clinical practice with clinician teachers in a healthcare setting. Both can function well. The key...
  13. Quit Nursing?

    You appear to have been placed in an unfortunate and rather unsafe position. You are a new grad and thus require ongoing training and mentoring, preferably at a teaching hospital where new grads will be trained. It is also vital that you re-read your...
  14. Why I Love IV Nurses

    This was a great article and I was reminded of how much I missed my IV Team practice. I have worked in many settings as IV NUrse but the best and most enjoyable experience was getting the IV team set up and running. This was in a multicultural hospit...
