    Hello!

    happy to see you and welcome you to AN are you free lance maybe yo can work your day job around the clinicals, many nurses do go in debt to pay for their schools and consider it an investment in their future there are loans, scholarships etc plus being a minority [male vs female] in the field there may be some federal/state help there good luck

    "End Stage" Untreatable Obesity

    END STAGE may refer to those whose weight has adversely affected their vital organs and general health to the point that they can not be helped with the procedures now available it takes a long time to lose 800 lbs and some of those on Discovery Channel have at least that much to lose and their body just gives out if you haven't walked in a long time your bones have lost calcium, your heart is straining to pump blood etc the sad thing about so many of these people are that they don't really see to enjoy a meal...they just push the food in as fast as they can and don't really taste it

    Dangerous nurses

    a patient had a high potassium level and the doctor ordered kayexelate but she did not d/c the k+ and for two days the nurses gave the patient both the potassium and the kayexelate i have worked with so many lazy, incompetent nurses i have lost count...tptb believe that a warm body with a license is the answer to all their problems

    hello ^^

    welcome, maybe you can take some english/math courses on line but actual nursing courses probably would have to wait

    Hello From North Carloina

    there are many nurses who choose the field as a second career...it is difficult to get back in the habit of studying but if others can do it, i am sure that you will be able to so also

    Pt Says Anti-Abortion Staff Removed IUD Without Permission

    i couldn't get this to 'pull up' so i may have only part of the story BUT the co-workers may not be at fault here if this is a clinic in which the workers gain tenure and after a certain length of time if is almost impossible to get rid of them.
