    How do you handle work stress?

    Thanks for the reply. You said you work 12-hour shifts, which part of the day is most stressful for you? Another thing, both my parents are nurses... how do you keep from your work affecting your home life? If my parents come home from a stressful day, its just best to stay out of their way or they will jump down my throat for the littlest of things... Any tips on how a child of a nurse could make it easier for their parents?

    Thanks for the response, I'm 17, but I'm mature enough to handle any answers as long as they are honest.

    Senior project is stress in nursing...comments welcome!

    To better ask my question, I want to know of some of the sources in which the stress comes from. As well as the affects from the stress like, how did it affect your performance on the job? Stress is different for everyone, so if you were affected physicaly or mentally, all responses are welcome. Anything will help, personal stories, co-worker's stories, or just examples. Thanks!

    Cluster headaches

    Hey everyone! I am gonna try to pick y'all brains and try to understand about this type of headache. Background....son in law seen in ER last night with his worst one ever. Slurred speech, left sided weakness....severe, incapacitaing pain. CT normal. Have you all ever seen this before? I have been an RN for over 20 years and not much freaks me out anymore but this was very scary. Not asking for medical advice.....just similar stories and what is your understanding of this. Thanks in advance!
  10. Patient care is everyones concern! When I was an NA I helped all I could....As an RN I continue to do same. That includes bedpans.....emesis.....spilled drinks.....room and unit cleanliness.....denture and mouth care.....any and ALL of it! Team work works best when all the team is playin!
  11. I think it is a reasonable request ...one less UTI for him........just curious, why do you all cath. for scopes?
