    Have you ever felt discriminated against because of your weight?

    This is the stuff that scares me-its almost like being obese is a crime. I used to smoke, and when they made laws against smoking indoors and knowledge of the dangers of smoking became commonplace, I felt like people would look down on me for it; it feels the same now with my weight.

    Have you ever felt discriminated against because of your weight?

    I haven't been discriminated overtly at work because of my weight, but honestly I think all the attention to obesity and the problems associated with it lately is making me feel like a marked person. Am I being paranoid about this? And I seriously wonder- if I had to compete with a nurse who was more attractive/thinner than I, would they get the job based on looks?
  3. Do you think you've been passed over for a job or not been advanced because you are overweight?
  4. What is the biggest challenge you have faced in a charge or management position?

    What does a nurse manager/charge nurse do?

    Thanks for your help; I have never actually seen the nurse manager where I am a student (I think she's hidden away in an office somewhere) but I see the charge always. Some charges I've worked with as a student were really available and helpful, others; nowhere to be found:D

    What does a nurse manager/charge nurse do?

    Is the nurse manager responsible for direct care for pts, or just the outcomes? Are the nurse managers supposed to be on the floor helping with direct care?

    time management

    Hello everyone; I would like to know what you do to organize yourself once you get onto the floor: Do you use a report sheet with shortcuts on it for each pt? do you read the pt chart and labs as well as get report? thanks for your input:p
