    How do I walk back into a room

    I lost my father, my husband and my mother all within 10 months of each other. The hardest part of the whole thing were the 'might-have-been's' that I still beat myself up with. What if I had pushed my husband to have that bladder biopsy that mig...

    Tips & advice for the Nursing Exam in Quebec

    Conny, you can ask general questions about what type of things to expect, but posters are not allowed to post actual questions. Nor are you allowed to ask other posters to buy/sell their exam prep guides. Please see other threads on this topic for...

    Since MM seems to have lost interest in this thread, I am going to close it down again. If she wants it re-opened, she can PM me or another moderator. I think everything that needs to be said has been said, and I appreciate the restraint most of ...

    Okay, re-opening thread. Please, please avoid personal attacks. Motorcycle Mama, many excellent suggestions have been given here. To summarize: 1) There are jobs you can still do with your sciatica problem. Telehealth would be one. 2) You ne...

    Target of clinical instructor's venom HELP!!!

    Hurray for you, earle, for having the guts to do that! Most of the students in my class were too gutless to even complain! I once thought I had 3 other students who were going to back me up when I went and complained about our treatment. They all ...

    Target of clinical instructor's venom HELP!!!

    Sue, that SUCKS TO NO END that she would do that! As a nurse with advanced training in palliative care, I know you were definitely in the right there, wanting the pain control to take priority! (And, of course, the patient's own wishes...) ...

    Telephone Orders- Perplexed in MA!

    I certainly do not feel this is a safe practise. If you didn't personally take the order, you have no business signing your name to it. Just think of the consequences if the transcriber made a mistake...it's YOUR license on the line for his/her mista...

    Target of clinical instructor's venom HELP!!!

    I came into nursing following a career as a teacher, and one of my clinical instructors was just terrible. I complained to the 2nd year supervisor about her, and got nowhere. I then went to the assistant dean, and told her, "If I spoke to my public s...

    Motorcycle Mama, have you thought of possibly doing Telehealth? You might want to check that out. And if sitting for long periods aggravates the sciatica, it is possible to get wireless hands-free headsets, so you can stand up and walk around the roo...

    Chronic COPD'er, 1 lung, 02 @ 6L/min. What would you do?

    I'll echo what other have said: sorry to hear about your patient, DutchGirl, but WOW, has this thread been an education! Did it take an autopsy to discover the pancreatitis? Shows that even doctors can really, really blow it now and then. But g...

    Out of nursing program cause i am smoker!!!

    Burnout, please, the OP has asked SEVERAL times that we not bash her for smoking. That is NOT the issue here. And nurses who work at this facility ARE allowed to smoke on the grounds. It's just the students who must abide by this teacher's 'no smokin...

    Could we stick to the original issue, please, and steer clear of any personal attacks? I don't want Marie's post about the life of this thread to be a self-fulfilling prophecy!

    Out of nursing program cause i am smoker!!!

    misstaz, I'd just like to point out something that has been repeated by several different posters, and which you don't seem to have picked up on yet. I think it's really important that you understand it. It's not that non-smokers don't LIKE the s...

    Out of nursing program cause i am smoker!!!

    Jim, I don't NEED to see those studies! I am one of those unfortunate individuals who is very sensitive to smoke. I was suffering from a bad cold one day, and when a couple of my biology students came to ask me questions after being outside for a smo...
