  1. How bad is an employment gap?

    Well that's good to hear. I'm nervous enough as it is about trying to be a nurse again in some random ICU, lol.
  2. How bad is an employment gap?

    I've been unemployed for 16 months, due to having a baby and then a move across the country, among several other reasons. I'm finally able to get a job again, but it's looking like my only option right now is going to be PRN work. My clinical backgro...
  3. "Your job is to make me happy"

    Don't feel guilty. If that patient was feeling well enough to be such a turd then you were obviously doing something right!
  4. What offends you (nursing related)?

    Which often begs the question... If someone is vegan AND does Crossfit, which one do they talk about first?
  5. Type B in a Type A world

    I'm also more of an easy going person who works in an ICU...my solution? Night shift.
  6. What was it like to be a nurse in the 1980s

    I've heard stories about there being orders for a glass of wine at bedtime (to help with sleep).
  7. Nursing Depts Ran by Non-Nurses?

    I currently work for a director with a business background. He is very hands off when it comes to the nurses. I think in the year I've worked for him, I've gotten a total of two emails from him.
  8. Small paycheck making me second guess career!

    You're right. Nurses get paid exactly what they deserve and shouldn't complain.
  9. Where can I get a RX for empathy? (A vent)

    The more people I see truly suffer, the less empathy I have for those who are just uncomfortable. Also, it's really hard to care about how someone feels if they're getting on your nerves.
  10. Insensitive Husband

    Only a small percentage of nurses take care of patients on ventilators and lasix drips. Who are you trying to impress anyway?
  11. Inserting an NG tube post arrest

    Twist the tube between your fingers a little bit the whole way down, not just when you're trying to get over the hump. It'll help the tube glide down past the tongue instead of getting caught in the mouth.
  12. WHY do so many people hate nursing? Sigh.

    I really LOVE about 10% of what I do, I don't mind about 70%, and I hate about 20%. Paperwork/charting can really only be so fulfilling.
  13. Separate being Family vs Nurse

    Get your dad some heel lift boots.
  14. ECG interpretation help

    If you ask yourself all of Lev's questions, you should be able to figure out what the rhythm is. Unfortunately there aren't very make tips or quick fixes, it's the kind of thing that just takes practice. If there are specific rhythms you're having tr...
  15. How far would u go for an interview

    I would still go to the interview...it would be good practice and get you used to the kinds of questions that you'll be asked. I'm saying this because I acted like a total weirdo in the first interview, and I was really glad it wasn't for a job I wa...
