  1. Bitter dried up nurses that need to RETIRE

    the way i see it sounds like you want to be a manager more than wanting to become a nurse - should be the other way around. there is no excuse for rudeness, but i think there is a trinket of rudeness on your part about your colleagues
  2. I Feel Like The Most Incompetent Nurse Ever!

    OMG!!! what a terrible thing to have happened. my thoughts are with you, and i hope everything works out well

  4. i was sexually assaulted by a patient a few years ago, not sure if that can be classified as dangerous?
  5. Frontline staff to lose jobs

  11. OMG! i think i would have liked to slap her face!!!!
  12. i had a patient who complained bitterly about the noise while we were dealing with an emergency the other day ( it was 08.00 mane) and we woke her up (poor thing). She soon changed her tune when i informed her that we had made just as much noise when...
  13. ooooh karaoke!!!
  14. Is an LPN/LVN like a health-care assistant? ( I note the "V" stands for vocational) Alot of health care assistants in the UK have NVQ qualifications (national vocational qualifications), is this the same? Although healthcare assistants are part of ...
  15. ever think you are jinxed

    yeah, i seem to have what i call "my black cloud" that tends to follow me around: If a patient on the ward unexpectedly deteriorates or a patient has a psychotic episode, yep it's usually on my shift!!!!!! and it's not just at work either, just the o...
