  1. Nursing school sucks!

    Head down.....stay focused....eye on the prize....seek out others for tutoring.....block out the BS.....don't let the negative ruin your experience. Be very careful what you put in your website rants, and where you post them. I have heard of students...
  2. Question regarding lack of bed bath in ICU

    Is this serious? Or did your teenage child hijack your computer? I could be wrong, but, it sounds like some-one is due for a break from the industry...I have to say this might be the most insensitive post I have ever read on this site. I know as nu...
  3. Being around alot of women....Pros and Cons

    Too funny!! no need to ask, been there! OP, Imagine having 5 wives, 14 sisters, and 3 girlfriends who hate men. That's what you are in for.
  4. OP, I wouldn't worry yet about where you should work after you graduate... You are going to face plenty of stress just getting through school. Between reading 10 chapters, studying last week's 10 chapters for this week's test, a 1000 word research p...
  5. I came into this from the restaurant business. So, I had no medical experience. The program at the school I attend is VERY INTENSE!!! 8 hours of class, 8 hours of books, study all weekend!!! It;s alot of information at one time. But, if you real...
  6. So, I'm finishing my second semester of lpn program. While my grades have bee really good, there has always been that lingering question if I made the right decision by changing careers (38 yr old second career). Today during clinicals, we had a c...
  7. Respiration Question

    I would say that it can be done that way, but probably not as accurate. In general, the first thin people do when the stethascope hits their skin is start breathing deep. I have a really hard time counting and timing the respirations. I find mysel...
  8. ****** if you do and ****** if you don't

    I can believe it could happen, as the officer in charge of the scene has the autonomy to charge pretty much whomever they see fit. However, I would like to believe that the good samaritan law would cover this carpenter, and relieve him of any liabil...
  9. Nursing with diabetes??

    Hello all! It has been a couple of months since I have posted on here. School has kept me pretty occupied. During skills lab on Thursday, I ran into a situation that has left me concerned. We are learning diagnostic tests, which included accu-che...
  10. Weird questionnn

    Just let it out!!! It is awsome that you can giggle and laugh in some of the toughest times. And I am sure that your brain has an off switch for when it's not appropriate. Don't give it another thought. There are plenty of us grumpy people in the...
  11. Lots of Snow!

    Nope!! Live in sunny Florida. 80 degrees today! It's awsome!!!
  12. Psych Nurse Tampa Florida (Veterans Affairs)

    2Tall, Sorry I don't have much info about the VA in this area, but I couldn't help leaving you a reply. See, I am from Dayton, Oh. And your post caught my eye as I am sitting on my patio drinking a cup. It's a chilly 65 degrees today. But the weather...
  13. Dont you hate it when.....

    Try not to stress too much over it. It can't be too bad if they told you they wanted to talk about it next week. It was definately in poor taste for your manager to do it this way though. Best of luck!!
  14. New here...considering becoming a nurse..need advice

    Hello there! I'm in hernando county. It does seem that most LPN positions are in LTC facilities or clinics/DR offices. Tampa General has positions available for LPN, but of course, experienced only. I haven't looked into Bayfront or All Childrens, as...
  15. OK, I am currently enrolling in a program. have done all the interviews, physicals, gotten booster shots, taken tests. Now just waiting on the phone call from admissions to let me know I'm in. However, after reading this thread, I'm possibly re-consi...
