  1. Very confused at this point!

    OP, now you know why the corrections job pays $19.37 an hour. Terrible hours, rotating shifts, inconsistent days off, working weekends and holidays with unpleasant people. Hey, this sounds like nursing!! I suggest you make a list of pros and cons (...
  2. Am I wrong from refusing to help a friend?

    Persuasive speech topic suggestions: -The benefits and value of doing your own homework. -why hanging onto friends who are users and manipulators is a bad choice -it is okay to refuse to "help" a friend -a friend in need is sometimes just a user Agr...
  3. Falsely accused of med diversion

    That's scary! I hope they paid you for the rest of the shift.
  4. Should I not look back at nursing ever again?

    We only heard one side of the story. I believe some people fail clinical, not because their instructor doesn't do their part trying to teach them, but in some cases because the student isn't progressing or never will. Just because a person got into n...
  5. Death by schedule

    OP, is this a schedule that continues to rotate like this (work 5 off 1)? If so, I hope you are hourly and they don't forget to pay you time and a half for anything over 40 hours per week. I believe this kind of schedule is legal but is certainly n...
  6. Tattoos?

    Might be but from previous posts, he's not a nurse.
  7. How to handle Nursing school.

    Agreed! Some people are not going to be successful in college or a career that they may dream about doing because they truly do not have the skills necessary to achieve that dream. I would love to be a singer who travels the world (even as backup t...
  8. Things you wish someone told you...

    Only floated to the ER but I wish I had known that 1. I would see many things that no one who is not a nurse would believe. 2. Foreign objects seem to end up in strange places. 3. Humans do some nasty things to each other. 4. Granny dump always ...
  9. Am I wrong from refusing to help a friend?

    OP-your friend is taking a course you have not taken but expects you to drop everything and give her free tutoring? Some friendship. For those family members and friends who think you should neglect your studies and help her--let them help her. Most...
  10. Can a nurse be Disciplined in every state

    I think part of the issue with this would be whether you hold an active license in a state or try to reinstate an expired license. For example, if I hold an active license in Michigan, but my New York and Pennsylvania license have lapsed, I do not b...
  11. Confused and needing advise

    Unless you are independently wealthy, I'm not sure how you plan to volunteer and travel. Get a few years of experience, some money put aside, then go do those things you want to do at age 25 with 3 years of experience. You can still be adventurous,...
  12. Nurses with Contracts

    You've been a nurse for 6 months. The reason your current employer had you sign a contract with a penalty is twofold. First, they are investing a lot of money in you to train you and have you suddenly leave. Second, a contract with a large payback wi...
  13. Bleeding Tumor

    Actually, it's not better to ask nurses than doctors about a specific health issue for your wife. Per terms of service, we cannot give medical advice. It sounds like you care very much for her. Seek advice from the medical professionals who know her...
  14. Definitely more to this story. OP was terminated and found guilty by the board for unsafe nursing practice 2 years ago as a new grad according to the story. Was the OP still in orientation? How late were these meds and what exactly were they? And ...
  15. How long did it take you to take the nclex?

    Took me 2 days--6 hours each day. (2 hours for each of the 3 subjects for the day). Every question on the paper was answered with a #2 pencil. Then after 2 days of testing, I drove home 2.5 hours from the only testing site for the state. Waited 10 ...
