  1. 2019 Nurse Corps Loan Repayment Program

    I just got my award letter for the HRSA SUD workforce loan repayment! I have 99k in federal loans so this is truly a blessing. I was notified that I was a final applicant on 7/12. My contract was signed on 7/26/19 and I received the welcome email tod...
  2. Are you really not a "real nurse" unless you work in acute care?

    Hospital nurses are great and someone has to do it right? Well, that stated: Some people have to tear others down in order to build themselves up. When I transfered from telemetry to outpatient my ex-coworkers gave me much grief. I was going to lose...
  3. New nurse with severe osteoarthritis and a bad knee

    The MDS job sounds good. Maybe you should also consider applying for psych as well. What about clinic positions or chemical dependency?
  4. is your efficiency misinterpreted as lazy ?

    I'm very efficient as well and what I've noticed is that there are two categories of efficient nurses. There are nurses who truly are efficient and then there are those who think they are but really they just leave a lot of work undone. As far as tho...
  5. New RN, first job, little disheartened.

    We definitely don't do this in the hospital (sounds cool). Also the med pass during day shift in the hospital is nothing to write home about either. Sometimes it feels like that's 90% of what you're doing and you barely get to assess your patients wh...
  6. Tele isn't that much different than med/surg and tele nurses are frequently floated to med/surg. Also tele floors get medicine overflow patients when the census is low. I prefer tele because unlike med/surg I know they are still alive because of that...
  7. I'm tired of nursing

    When it's time to go it's time to go. You have made a lot of posts about your anxiety and depression which is likely related to or exacerbated by the job. You've put 14 years in and you don't owe anyone anything nor do you have to prove how tough you...
  8. No need to be upset at the truth! Change careers

    I so agree. I saw this thread and was like huh? So if you have a problem with being worked half to death and being treated like poo then there is something wrong with you? This is why I say leave the floor nursing to those who like the abuse. Things ...
  9. Stop the drama

    How about not allowing yourself to be sucked into it? As far as interactions with my co-workers go I have on horseblinders. I know they talk about me behind my back but I pretend not to notice. I was taking report one day and another nurse was standi...
  10. "Someone tied a knot in that restraint"

    You can confront a co-worker without blowing up at them. It is wrong to tie knots in restraints but blowing up and expressing anger in a hostile manner isn't going to help the situation. Do you feel that confronting someone needs to lead to a hostile...
  11. RN tried to talk me out of Nursing school...

    I think it was very rude of her to offer you unsolicited advice. That said...she does have a point. Being a nurse is interesting and meaningful work but it definitely isn't glamorous and it is hard to get a job right now even with a BSN. This is just...
  12. Is night shift intolerance worth the $$ and Bennies??

    Find something on days. Nights isn't for everyone. I've stuck with it for a year now but have never adjusted. I can see the effects on my health. Since I've been working nights I've lost weight...have headaches in the morning after work..sometimes I ...
  13. People have time to go to the cafeteria sit down and actually eat? Lol. We usually eat in our breakroom...no MDs allowed! Well they're allowed but it's our hallowed space so even when they come in to use the BR they get the "look" from us and leave q...
  14. Am I making a mistake not taking MedSurg position?

    I guess it depends on what you think you will get out of the Med/Surg position. What are your future goals?
  15. Why is it the highest paid among us...

    I find it annoying too. I also get asked for my penlight a lot too and I always have to run the MD down to get it back. How many times have you as a nurse had to ask the MD to borrow their stethescope?
