  1. The Type of Nurse I Don't Want to Become

    For one thing, I apologize, it wasn't really the OP that many of the posts were directed at that gave me an uncomfortable feeling; there were a handful of somewhat nasty posts directed at the OP, but more directed at each other. What I'm trying to ...
  2. The Type of Nurse I Don't Want to Become

    I thought teaching was a part of being a nurse; if so, what do many of the nurses responding here think they are teaching the OP? I happen to agree with a few of the things the OP said and disagree with other things, but that's not what I want to di...
  3. For all of those on Medicaid

    To JoPACURN: Yes. And I see you don't let them get to you either - good. And you're better at getting right to the point than I am.
  4. For all of those on Medicaid

    OK, to those who won't ask "where the heck am I coming from", well just from a lot of experience dealing with people. I've actually gotten more optimisitic about people the longer I deal with people, especially the ones with problems. And yes, I've...
  5. For all of those on Medicaid

    It's been very interesting to read all these threads, and it has made me do a lot of thinking. I honestly don't personally have a problem with people doing things like going to an ER for a pregnancy test when they could've bought a test for a buck.....
  6. For all of those on Medicaid

    People who are on Medicaid and are considered to abuse the system by asking for extra crutches because "Medicaid will pay for it" may say that because it is easier to say that than to say that maybe she's afraid she can't get back if she something ha...
  7. For all of those on Medicaid

    This is not to the OP, but to the people who don't seem to understand why people on Medicaid seem to be the ones that complain the most. I think I understand a little bit why people on Medicaid may be like this, and this is a generalization, so take...
  8. Young and jaded.

    I'm just a nursing student, so I know that means I haven't yet been exposed to the type of constant interactions with patients who choose lifestyles that just exacerbate their problems. I can imagine how easy it must be to get burned out by trying to...
  9. I've been bullied all my life, and it continues...

    I'm so sorry you are experiencing all this at work! I'm not a nurse yet (still a nursing student) but I can understand where you are coming from because I've experienced a lot of what you've described at times in my previous career. I was very hurt b...
  10. is Nursing School HARDER than Medical School?

    Thank you to all who responded to my post. I guess I should've clarified that the only reason I asked if NS was harder than Medical School is not because I thought they were both "oranges" or both "apples" (I understand they are very different in the...
  11. Whether is it from a Nursing Instructor or classmate, I keep hearing that Nursing School is HARD, HARD, HARD!!! This is no big surprise to me that is hard, but it seems strange that this is emphasized so much; it seems like people are trying to scare...
  12. Is Critical Thinking TAUGHT or just ASSESSED?

    thanks to all who posted and provided such great insight and book recommendations! I guess I now see why critical thinking is so important and difficult in nursing school because it is one thing to pick the correct one of four multiple choice answer...
  13. Is Critical Thinking TAUGHT or just ASSESSED?

    thanks Mi Vida Loca, now I understand, good examples!
  14. Is Critical Thinking TAUGHT or just ASSESSED?

    thanks, studentinnursing for the black and white example of how Not to critically think ! Your answer made me realize that I've been dealing with multiple choice questions that require critical thinking, so I have at least an idea of how to approach...
  15. Is Critical Thinking TAUGHT or just ASSESSED?

    Thank you mi via loca, I agree with itsmejuli, your explanation of critical thinking is very clear. And itsmejuli, I agree with you that there should possibly be some sort of logic class as a pre-requisite for nursing school. Everyone says that th...
