  1. I guess I'm the odd one out. I hated nursing school and am so happy to be out in the real world. I have not missed school for one second. It was high school all over again and the instructors were awful. I'm dreading having to go to a Rn-bsn program ...
  2. Who are you inviting to your graduation?

    I did not go to my graduation either. Nursing school was awful, I did not want to spend any more time there than I had to.
  3. How many 12 hour shifts per week

    Thanks for all of the input, I did not think I would get so many responses. To clarify I work days, and I am lucky because the hospital is very close to my house (10 min). I don't have kids yet, but do have cats and a very supportive husband. I would...
  4. How many 12 hour shifts per week

    I'm working days.
  5. How many 12 hour shifts per week

    I work 12 hour shifts and am able to work as much as I like. I am grateful for this because I have some debt I want to pay down. I do not want to get burnt out. How many shifts per week is too many? I am thinking between 4-5. Just wondering how many ...
  6. Back pain on med cart

    At one of my jobs we use a med cart. We keep each pts meds in a brown paper bag. I pull the bag out for the correct pt, dump it into the top of the med cart and dispense the meds. You will still have to squat down, but only once per pt.
  7. New grad RN. Which position to take?

    I agree, take the sure thing. You can always quit if you find something better. You need to lookout for yourself and do what's best for you.
  8. Nurse jobs that allow modifications?

    Just get them in areas where they can be covered with clothes and you will be fine.
  9. Psych book suggestions

    Hello, I started in psych about 6 months ago and love it! I feel like my documentation is OK, but could be much better. I am looking for a book to help me with my charting, but all the books I find seems to be geared towards med-surg. Does anyone hav...
  10. Nurse with asthma, how do they cope?

    I have had asthma my whole life. Took a few tries, but I am on a med that really keeps me controlled and I don't have any issues at work. Is your asthma controlled?
  11. I don't psych nurse like the other psych nurses here

    Hi, I am also new to psych and feel the same way you do. I am happy to hear I am not the only one who feels this way. Most of the other nurses I work with are so rude and snippy to the patients. I can't believe they way they talk to them! I do not s...
  12. RN working at a UNlicensed drug rehab

    Thanks for the feedback. You helped confirm my suspicions. I'm running now!
  13. RN working at a UNlicensed drug rehab

  14. RN working at a UNlicensed drug rehab

    I am not passing out meds, they have unlicensed employees doing that. They told me (and i have it in writing that I have nothing to do with dispensing, or supervising med dispensing). There is a medical director and a MD that I will be collaborating ...
  15. Hi Everyone, I found out these details after I got hired: I was hired on as a RN for a residential rehab facility. They do not have any other nurses working there, just me and unlicensed staff. The role they want me to play is not a management or s...
