  1. "Have no fear, we're savin' lives up in here"

    Ahhh I work in long term care, and I would LOVE to make a video. Not sure what the hippa codes are for that. But there are a small amount of people whom I could absolutely depend on , who have a great sense of humor, who would do this with me.
  2. LVN & DUI

    Put your big girl panties on and contact the board. Always go to the source if you can. Just my 48 cents!! :))
  3. Does an obese nurse set a bad example?

    I have seen obese nurses treat patients with the utmost respect because they know what it feels like to not have any respect towards them because they are obese. I have seen slender nurses being very rude to patients because they have no idea how to ...
  4. Thank you all for your support and encouragment I passed 3rd try!

    Third time is a charm!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Congratulations!!!
  5. How does one cope post antidepressants

    Most importantly like Merlyn stated, do not stop taking your medication because you feel better, it could be worse for you. I stumbled upon that quite a bit in my mental health rotation a few years ago, everyone thinks they feel better and then they...
  6. Why are nurses such back-stabbers?

    Like Rodney King said "why can't we all just get along". I am a very positive person, and I go into work and ignore the negative ninnies. I do my job the best that I can, I have as much fun as I could possibly have in one shift, and I always do the r...
  7. what items could you not go a nursing shift without?

    I work 7p to 7a. Permanent marker, black pen, mountain dew and popcorn for around 3:00 a.m.
  8. Exactly 2 weeks before NCLEX-RN Exam Day!! Yay!

    Study the CD and know your lab values :))
  9. Am feeling so sad. I failed my exam 2nd time.

    Do not feel bad, I failed the exam twice myself. I was devastated, humiliated, embarrassed ect...... I put my big girl panties on and studied the cd from saunders and did all of the 4000 questions, and then a few other cd's. I quit studying out of t...
  10. can my DON force me to work the floor?

    At my job, we are frequently getting calls off, and we need the help to cover nursing positions. We went to computers last year, and since then, not a single office nurse has helped us on the floor. I think you should do the orientation, and get used...
  11. Just finished NCLEX RN 40 min ago...

    Seriously???? There is no Pearson view trick. You either passed the darn test or you didn't. Don't mean to be so cynical, but really.......
  12. Why I LOVE night shift

    Have been working days for about three years now. Just recently switched to nights 7p to 7a. LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!! Such less stress working nights!!! I was always proud to work days, because so many silly people strive to get to that shift , like it ...
  13. Patient Surveys..vent.

    I actually like patient surveys!! It shows the hospital what a bunch of miserable nurses that I work with who are so negative and mean are really like. And it shows that people appreciate me, as a kind and helpful nurse.
  14. When will I stop dreading going to work?!

    I am glad to hear that I am not the only one who went through that. Hang in there!! I have been a nurse for 3 1/2 years and I am still learning things every day. It does get easier, it really really does.
  15. Increase abuse of Bath Salts

    WOW, Calgon takes me away has a new huge meaning to me!! WTH??? REALLY??
