    Do some nurses actually consider getting plastice surgery? I DO

    My tummy!! I have soooo much skin there that it just hangs. I had a baby, then lost a bunch of weight. It's not "if" I'm gonna do it, it's "when!" :)

    Where to precept?!

    You know, after getting the response that i did, i was so upset at this web site, and almost deleted this app off my phone. Glad i didn't because then i wouldn't have heard from understanding, caring, and helpful people like you. Thank y'all so much!!

    You Know You're A Nurse If...

    If you are changing a dressing on a stage 3 decubitis ulcer and think "that is exactly how i like my steaks!" You know you are a nursing student when it is the night before the test and you clean your classmates vomit, then go right back to studying and eating your munchies :)

    Where to precept?!

    When teachers said i was doing my med-surg clinicals on the oncology floor, then the next semester i was told i will do my med-surg clinicals on the resp care unit, then the next semester i was told that i will do my med-surg rotation on the MICU.. With all that being called "med-surg" i didn't know there was a floor called med-surg. The only med-surg that i was thinking of is the med-surg urgent care places. I am making all high B's and doing very well. When i said "too much going in, can't keep it all straight" i was trying to make light of y'all doubting me. Either way, i don't have to prove myself, i did say that it was a stupid question. Enjoy doubting me while i enjoy saving lives!! :)

    Haha, sometimes i feel like the only thing that i have gotten out of the past semesters is how to spell "diarrhea" correctly!! Too much going in, can't keep it all straight! :)

    personal question...

    When you were a new grad, if you don't mind me asking, what did you get paid to be an ED nurse? I'm really thinking about going into this area. I know pay can be different in each state, but just to get an average baseline... Thanks!!

    Where to precept?!

    No, I'm in my 4th semester. The thing that always confused me was when teachers said "this is where you will be doing your med-surg rotation" then I was on an oncology floor, or resp, or joint camp. I didn't know there is an actual floor called med-surg. That does sound like I will benefit from it, and learn a lot. Thank you so much

    Thanks. I know it's not the rest of my life, just want to get my foot in the door of where I want to be. But you are right. Any experience is great to have and learn from.

    Thank y'all for the great advice. Ok, this is going to be a dumb question I know, but when you say to try med-surg, is that the urgent care places?
