  1. Curious...using the title "Doctor" for a DNP...

    i don't know whose end you're referring to but it draws no conclusion for me. i think that's an unfair statement.
  2. When people say they are nurses but not...

    i was really curious, is it ever enforced? so i looked on my state website to see if anyone has actually been prosecuted for using the title nurse. this is what i found. it is public record for all to see but i still have removed their city of reside...
  3. Curious...using the title "Doctor" for a DNP...

    my husband had robotic surgery for adneocarcinoma of the prostate a couple of weeks ago, at vanderbilt no less. the next morning the urology surgical resident (who had been in the or) came in to examine my husband. i asked him where the urethral ast...
  4. Are there any nurses who actually enjoy their jobs?

    i currently have 2 jobs and i enjoy them both. i work 60 hours a week because my husband is out of work and he has $16,000 worth of medical bills that are not covered by insurance. 60 hours won't cover everything but it's what i have to do. luckily i...
  5. under the influence at work/sleeping on the job

    i think once you've made your concerns known to both her director and hr then there's nothing more that you can do. since neither seemed concerned i'm sure that they know more about her condition and the needs for the meds. her doctor obviously know...
  6. what to do if...

    i believe it's against the tos for any member to offer any type of legal advice. i can tell you it's not unusual for the nurses involved to be put on suspension until the issue is resolved. it doesn't imply that one or the other or both is guilty. i...
  7. Nurses malpractice insurance

    i believe that blanket statements are inappropriate and unfair to the person asking who really does not know what to do. a person may feel that malpractice insurance is a waste of money but many others have valid reasons for buying it. even if it's f...
  8. Curious...using the title "Doctor" for a DNP...

    if a nurse has obtained a doctors degree whether it be in nursing, nursing management or as a dnp, that nurse has every right to use that title in a clinical setting, as does a pt, an rd, etc... misrepresenting themselves as a medical doctor is what ...

    best of luck to you meli in your new nursing career. you're off to a great start, you've already learned that there is always something new to be learned. nursing changes on a daily basis. nurses don't know it all and we don't mind admitting it. :an...
  10. Ankle Sprain Need Advice

    it would be best to wait and see what your doctor has to say about it. besides you'll surely need a note from him anyway. i hope it feels better soon.
  11. I have a question to ask.......

    med/surg is the best experience you can get. once you have a year or more of med/surg under your belt the world of nursing is yours. i absolutely loved med/surg for years....then i got to the point where i just could not do it one more day. it wasn't...

  14. Becoming an NP with little to no nursing experience??

    vanderbilt university will take a person with a bs in any field into their np program and you come out in 2 years ready to work....prescribe...etc.....i think that's irresponsible. my pcp had one such np working for him and shall we say it did not la...
  15. Curious...using the title "Doctor" for a DNP...

    psychiatrists' inpatients are required to have a h&p the same as any patient, it is done by the hospitalist or the patients pcp if available. fixing the mind does work to fix the body. there is a mind-body connection and it works both ways. a si...
