  1. How does autonomy impact the nursing practice?

    there is no autonomy in nursing. nursing is not a "profession". it is a service occupation, just like working at McDonalds. nursing schools like to teach that nursing is a profession, but in reality it is just complying with standard of care and prac...
  2. Just tired

    grow a pair, sister. seriously, you are 21, inexperienced, untainted, and working in a field that will taint you. nursing homes are the bottom of the barrel. they hired cheap and inexperienced labour like you as charge, yes?. get thee to a top fligh...
  3. General demeanor and behaviour as a male SN

    agreed that lots of female instructors and floor nurses will regard/report any male as aggressive if they don't like them personally. it's the golden ticket to getting rid of someone that makes them uncomfortable (in any way) or makes them feel inade...

  6. Nursing student questioning career

    you sound like a more assertive person that would not be happy in anything less than an autonomous role. if so, nursing below the MSN level is not for you. i entered nursing school after a long career in engineering and came to the same conclusion at...
  7. General demeanor and behaviour as a male SN

    what you need to be in clinicals depends on the character of your instructor and the floor nurses that you are working with. if you cannot adapt to their comfort level then you are toast. this gets tricky, and sometimes every relationship is an indiv...
  8. Male nursing student with power?

    coming into nursing from an engineering background i must say that during clinicals i was among the better educated students both in general, and in terms of the human physiology and nursing/medical practice. my answers were consistently more in dept...
  9. How are male nursing students perceived?

    OB is a special place, and the floor nurses can be very territorial there. in my case, the floors were lifers on gravy duty and didn't want ANY students on the floor to rock their pleasure boat. the CNA on OB were just as bad as the RN. some spurious...

  12. Median pay for L&D RNC-OB with 4 years experience

    WAG you are getting less than 60K? the thing is, we are in a depression right now, and have been for your entire working carreer. the only way to leverage up in such times is the same used in better times. you need to hop from job to job every 2-4 ye...

  15. Sexual Orientation Question

    studies have shown that sexual preference affects risk analysis directly. the questions are valid. and yes, you can get HIV through normal vaginal intercourse, but this is not anywhere near as likely as through receptive anal intercourse. the only ci...
