    15 Minutes in the Life of a Nurse

    That is a fantastic idea! I've always said I don't understand why the lab can't just notify the doctor directly.

    But, she was fine this morning!

    Oh my. I worked in ER for a while but I had to leave because the reactions to unexpected deaths overwhelmed me. Thankfully, I was never involved in a pediatric code.

    Advice for new RNs, from a new RN

    If you hear rumors that an employer is predatory against nurses, BELIEVE IT. Learn from my mistake.

    What do you think of 12 hour shifts?

    12 hours, hands down. I don't think I could go back to a job where I only had 2 days a week off. Yes, 12 hours is a long shift but it's a trade off to work on fewer days a week!

    Inappropriate nurses?

    I would have forgotten about it and moved on with my life.

    Is this reasonable or just over the top?

    I hate beside report because I don't feel comfortable talking about the patient in front of the patient. Making the next shift wait through an assessment? Heck no!

    What Did You Get For Nurses Week?

    Last year we got gift certificates for new scrubs and a nice brunch that included shrimp. This year we got an insulated tumbler from a hospital we partner with and a breakfast/ice cream social.

    coworkers constantly checking your charting

    I used to work with two nurses who refused to take report from the previous nurse for 30 to 45 minutes while they combed over every inch of that nurses charting. They used it as a bullying tactic.

    The Patient's "Guests"

    I just recently had a patient, status post CVA who could not walk independently, which his wife knew. But that didn't stop her from turning his bed alarm off and when he got up, she neither got up to help him nor did she call for help. Of course, th...
