  1. All in my head?

    If you have no problems with any sticks besides this one, let someone else start his i.v. and get over it. Accept that you are not perfect and quit wasting so much of your mental energy worrying about your imperfection. Why can't you start this one...
  2. Dr Oz's show on antidepressants...your thoughts?

    I did not see this show, but feel the need to comment anyway. We could all take better care of ourselves - eat better, exercise, etc. Will it help us feel better? Probably, but speaking from personal experience, when you're so depressed that getti...
  3. Super Obese

    What I don't understand is how the staffing is not any different for caring for this patient population. It is not fair to the patients or the nurses. My job description requires that I can lift 50# - that's it. I am quite fit and can lift my 50#...
  4. End of Per Diem?

    Oh, I certainly hope not. I have two per diem jobs instead of a full or part time job. I can work when I want, don't work when I don't want to work, and no holidays. No benefits either, but it works out perfectly for being a full-time student!
  5. Feel Horrible, Have Lost All Confidence....

    It sounds like you have learned from the experience, and that is all you can do. The patient was not harmed, and you will be more careful next time. There's not a nurse who's been in practice for any length of time who has not made a med error. It...
  6. I dropped out. Please console me

    "After one failed semester." Maybe I misunderstood this statement and you passed your semester and then withdrew. If so, I am terribly sorry and apologize. You shouldn't feel guilty if you passed all of your classes and then formally withdrew; you...
  7. Rule follower-how to survive

    I agree with GrnTea - the OR would be a good fit, plus you would have the benefit of working more independently, so you wouldn't feel compelled to "help" everyone else see their mistakes. You may not work well on a team if you feel that you need to ...
  8. Am I in big trouble?

    This is definitely a system-level problem. I would take the advice given here and not only talk to your manager about it, but bring a couple of ideas on how to prevent this from happening in the future.
  9. The best walking shoes for nurses

    Danskos hands-down. They are ugly but I have zero joint pain. They are about all I wear besides my running shoes (which I only wear, oddly enough, when running). I even have sandals. As far as the cost goes, I have one pair I bough 7 years ago. ...
  10. Extremely BAD night...

    I was wondering the same thing.
  11. Graduate Reserch Project

    I think ONLY a NP should be allowed to do this - not an RN. APRNs have additional training in the vaginal exam that RNs do not have. Only an NP can Dx what any other issues may be with the victim; any underlying medical problems. An RN can not fol...
  12. Do you talk about work at home?

    Nope, don't talk about it...other than "crappy day, leave me alone." No desire to talk about nursing if I am not getting paid to do so.
  13. Should I look for a new job in this situation?

    Nope, if they're not making a big deal out of it, I wouldn't. If they have a plan for you, take advantage of it; they must see your value. I constantly review my performance and see what I could change; keep evaluating yourself and you will be able...
  14. I dropped out. Please console me

    I'm sorry, I am going to be the meanie here. Really? You had a scholarship and just decided to give up? I'm sorry, I am not going to give you permission to flush that down the toilet. You should have at least finished the semester on good standin...
  15. Really???? They criticized you for that??? I have given the iv Morphine while the patient is taking the po Percocet. Of course, pain management is my passion, so I am probably over zealous. If someone has cancer pain, they should be treated!!! I...
