    Nursing Certifications

    I am no longer working, but I have been oncology certified (OCN) by Oncology Nursing Society since 2010. I've also had certifications in other specialties throughout my career; sometimes I was compensated for being certified, but oftentimes I pursued certification for personal satisfaction. It frustrates me that nurses are asked to increase their education and obtain specialty certifications without rightful remuneration. When nurses do dare to ask for compensation, they're seen as being greedy. Altruism is a wonderful ideal, but it doesn't pay the bills.

    Apple Watch - Why I Love It!

    To which poster are you responding?

    Apple Watch - Why I Love It!

    I love mine, but I would never wear mine to work if I were still working. Putting on chemo garb then taking it off, plus being a natural born klutz, nuh uh. I would be horrified if I wrecked it, even if I had Apple Care Plus (which I do).

    I wasn't angry.

    How could it have been a "pile-on" when you had only gotten one negative post at the time I posted? How was reiterating TOS a personal attack? I referred to you as "Agency Nurse" because I thought you were writing about yourself. I missed the clue that this was fiction. My bad. I know that staff writers have to post using their full name; I was actually one of the people hired as a staff writer. Due to health problems, I have only been able to write one article.

    Staff where, here? I don't really pay attention to the color of someone's screen name. There are plenty of staff here who do not use their likeness/real name when they post. I don't see how what I said was wrong. If someone wants to tell me how I was out of line, please tell me.

    I didn't say anything about the post itself. I just said you would be well-advised not to use your real name and real likeness on this site. Even people who use an anonymous name and avatar have gotten into trouble with things they posted. I said that as advice: not being hostile, not NETY, NETY, NETY, not threatening, not to make you feel small. You said I should have approached it as a teachable moment. That's exactly why I posted that advice. It was caution from having known individuals who found out that MBs aren't as anonymous as people think they are, even when you use a made-up screen name and avatar.

    Never mind.

    Agency Nurse should not use her full name, nor use her picture as an avatar. Agency Nurse might say something one day that could be offensive to one of the nurses she crosses paths with, and could wind up losing shifts as a result.
  10. I meant no disrespect. I just never heard or saw that term before.
  11. You can't paint all religious people with the same brush. I am what you would call "religious," yet I would never think of mistreating or giving lesser care to a patient because of his/her sexual orientation. That is none of my business. The patient's care is my business.
  12. OK, I know what "LGBTQ" stands for, but what's the "I"? "In between"? "In transition"?
  13. Whom are you addressing in this post? I was giving you a compliment for your logical, yet easy to understand, post to tutelary.
  14. What an excellent breakdown of a very complex issue!
  15. Thanks. I thought long and hard about posting that, because those conversations tend to get acrimonious...and that's on a good day. But it seemed to be an apt comparison.
