If you feel your religious beliefs give you grounds to refuse people care, I will never respect you.

    how long did you wait to go from LPN to RN?

    I had to work a year and finish pre-reqs before I could apply, but it feels like I just went straight on, since I did a year of full-time pre-reqs in between. (:

    Rose State RN Fall 2012

    Very happy, I got the clinical group I was hoping for! Now we just have orientation on the 14th and then classes start.
  3. I don't know anything about Mercy but I do know that both Saint Anthony and INTEGRIS facilities schedule nurses for 8 hour shifts.

    Religion Needed to be a Good Nurse?

    It is not necessary to be religious or spiritual to be a nurse, and neither makes anyone a better nurse, either. The teacher is taking liberties.

    Obama health care law upheld.

    Hear, hear! I'm quite pleased, myself!

    Are you a nurse with "alternative" spiritual beliefs?

    Atheist pagan in the Bible belt, married to another atheist nurse. I wear a pentacle at work, usually no one says anything. I always refuse to pray with patients, though, and my husband does the same. Neither of us discusses our religious beliefs with the patient -- if the patient ASKS me, I tend to say something about how we're not here for me, we're here for them, so let's focus on them, etc. My co-workers are aware, though.

    Anyone accepted into Rose State?

    ^ Career ladder students only have to attend two semesters. The first year of the program is skipped over. (:

    Rose State RN Fall 2012

    Thank goodness! I got a call Thursday informing me that my request to be transferred from traditional day to online was accepted, so I'm officially all set up for that. It's a huge relief to me and my husband, who weren't sure how we were going to make that days clinical schedule work.
  9. Grades don't matter, what matters is that you pass the NCLEX-RN and get your license. At my facility it's really hard for a new grad to get a specialty job without already having a foot in the door -- if you could work even part-time as a tech for an ICU, it can help a lot.

    ^ I honestly can't remember exactly but the number was relatively high? I do know the point system is different for career ladder. If I remember how many I promise I'll come back to tell you.

    Do you have family members who are nurses?

    My grandmother who has long since passed was an LPN in a small town ER. My grandfather, her husband, was the town sherriff. They are both long dead and I wish I could have asked them for stories! I never knew my grandmother was a nurse until I went to nursing school, and then my mother told me. My father is a pathologist, though.

    Rose State RN Fall 2012

    I got accepted into the traditional days career ladder track -- but the clinical schedule severely conflicts with my work so I accepted but asked to be switched into online or evenings if at ALL possible. I have to be honest and I'm not looking forward to it at all -- I'm only looking forward to it being OVER!

    Sex in the workplace.....what do YOU think should be done?

    I agree that because the nurse was off duty, she should not be fired unless there is a specific policy she is in violation of. And yes, you can't fire people for not having common sense, so such policy DOES need to be written down! At least at my facility things are loosely written such that anyone can be fired for practically anything ("that gives them reason to suspect your moral character" or something similar) but I am employed with an at-will employer. The physician should be fired for dereliction of duty or some similar type of statement -- since he WAS on call and working. Same policy would cover him no doubt but so would others due to his use of company time, etc etc.

    Do you "friend" your pts on Facebook???

    Absolutely not!! That is very unprofessional and inappropriate!

    Things you'd LOVE to tell coworkers...and get away with it!

    LPNs are nurses, too. Stop talking to me and refusing to call me a NURSE. And also, I'd appreciate it if you'd (different person!) stop freaking going behind my back and have the ovaries to tell me your opinions yourself. If you wish I'd quit, why don't you just admit it to my face?
