  2. Sometimes docs need to be re educated about their own responsibilities. As far as actually carrying out a procedure outside my scope of practice I look at it this way. I am working under my license. As long as I have that license I can find a job....
  3. I am working under my license not the physician's. Ifthe concern here is about the nurse loosing her/his job well my feeling about it is this. I was looking for a job when I found this one. I can always find another. A particular job is not more i...
  4. You were 10 yrs old. Give that kid permission to be a well meaning kid. The adult was in anguish so was not being an adult toward the kid. Forgive his rude reaction. It was not a personal attack on the kid it was a wounded angry person striking out....

  6. Has anyone taken PALS lately?

    Both PALS and ACLS are a lot kinder than they once were. There is a pretest on the PALS CD. You should be able to score a minimum of 80% on the pretest before you take the class. You can take the pretest more than once. This will clue you in as t...

  11. First it is NOT the CNA that is stopping you. What does your contract say? You should have a copy and be very familiar with it. Like previously mentioned. If and only if this new job is owned by the same corporation as your present facility, the...
  12. Trauma Naked?

    I a trauma you will be stripped. It is not pleasant and we do understand that. It is necessary. You will be kept uncovered as injuries are not alway apparent on first look. Before you file complaints consider what is important to you. Suppose yo...
  13. I would shorten (distill it) it considerably. example: "I want a career where I feel I make a difference. Growing up many of my friends' moms were nurses whom I admired. This is an field that incorporates my love of science, and my nurturing skills...
  14. performance eval not fair-- !

    Thank you crissrn27. You stole the words right out of my mouth. In the early 1970s I was working as a Nurse's Aide (almost said CNA but there was not such thing back then) My employer would give nickel raises (even then a nickel was NOTHING). They...
