    What games DO you play? (On your break, of course)

    Speaking of Nurses and cards, does anyone know what happened to NurseCard? Update: NurseCard last visited in November '19.

    Interview Panel, riddle me this?

    My former employer had an array of people on the panel, just like this. On a side note, back in '02 I was the defendant on a $50,000 civil suit case that went to trial. I told my Lawyer, "If the jury is going to be comprised of 'my peers,' at least three need to be Nurses". He replied, "There's not much of a chance of that happening". Lo and behold, the jury was comprised of three RNs and all I ended up paying was $3500 in legal costs. I met with one of the RNs after the trial, and she said, "We tried to get you off scot-free, but one Juror wouldn't budge". The varied approach to situations such as these are sometimes a good idea, but really, only RNs know who, how, and what other RNs are.

  6. Hey, just recently became interested in becoming a nurse, but I looked up online and the equipment needed seem an relatively expensive purchase overall. Do you have places to get discounts or like coupon codes. I live a more frugal lifestyle and this would be helpful.

    Well, alright then! I won't let the Yellow Side screen door hit me in the behind!

    I spent the afternoon on the Blue Side, which I hadn't visited since January '20 - a year and a half- and oh what a joy it was! Some of my old virtual Blue Side friends were still there, and a couple from this Yellow Side. I read a 600+ post thread, nearly in its entirety, that had me laughing so hard I was crying! I believe that I will be hanging out on the Blue Side a little more often.

    Every nurse should know martial arts.

    Yeah, even if they have it coming!

    Every nurse should know martial arts.

    With all due respect for a thread caring about Nurses' safety, LDT, I beg to differ with your premise. I've dealt with acting out behavior Patients & Clients since I was 18 years old, in a variety of settings, an untold number of times. There are protection and de-escalation techniques which work, other than martial arts. Martial arts are good for anybody to know, but we, as Nurses, can only use protective and escape moves. For example, I took a Taekwondo course as a adolescent and used a couple of moves, that I had learned, several times in my career. Using martial arts while working as a Nurse with Patients is a sticky wicket.

    I just briefed through the two threads that kbrn brought back and went "WOW! Things have changed!" It would be so nice to be able to post like that again! And some of the seasoned members that I once enjoyed reading their posts haven't visited in quite some time. Others continue to post, yet have changed their style. Oh to be appropriately freely & honestly open to express ourselves!

    Millennial Nurses Have Issues

    My first disagreement with an allnurses member was eleven years ago, right after I joined back in June '10. A student nurse disagreed with me on this forum and then sent me a PM stating pretty much the same as stablesystole. Something along the lines of, "I can't wait until you old fuddy duddies are out of the picture so we young Nurses can do a better job than you!" Heh. I was only 53 years old! Well, here's to you, now a Nurse for about a decade: I am out of the picture and wish you well! Thanks for bringing back this thread, SBE!

    And we will have to deal with the ramifications of a discussion critiquing the changes, no matter how objectively factual.
