    Deprofessionalization of nurses?

    So I'm currently in a Ph.D. Nursing Education program, and working on a course in advanced nursing theory. I was reading an article entitled "Theoretical development in the context of nursing-The hidden epistemology of nursing theory" and they discus...

    2 year probationary period for army civilian nurse

    Its the same way with the VA. It gives them an opportunity to move someone out if they don't fit with the organization in some way or another. After two years though you should be alright.

    Meth induced abuse? =(

    Oh meth heads touch my crazy nerve almost every time. And I have a deep crazy nerve too but they make my mom voice come out.

    Nursing for Intimate care for men

    WOW! really? Snarky much? Me too happened to me long before there was recourse for women to seek help. I'm an Army vet ***, and I can tell you way more about a woman working around multiple men who make life damn near impossible to live than you woul...

    Hesitation to become a nurse student

    That completely depends on you and you alone. Personally, if I were just entering nursing school I would still complete it. Covid is only one risk of being a nurse, we have a huge risk of abuse, assault, TB exposure among other things. There are plac...

    Nursing for Intimate care for men

    I looked at the site you provided, but I don't see where you received your information. Only, it provides the same word for word that you posted in your first post.

    Coronavirus-Are we ready to talk about rationing care?

    This conversation makes me sad but it is one that we should be having. As a previous poster said, America is in for a rude awakening and that has been coming for quite a long while.
  9. If you don't test, then you can't tell people that there are thousands currently sick with it, then there is less of a panic. Probably trying to save the stock markets from crashing.

    Radiographic coronavirus rule out?

    That would mean that a patient would have to be sick for quite a while, infecting many people before something would show up on a CT. We really need more testing kits.

    Depression + Anxiety as a Nurse

    I have PTSD, generalized anxiety, and major depression. It wasn't until I found my current job that I really felt at home and don't suffer from it mostly at work. If you find your niche, you'll find your confidence to beat back the anxiety.
  12. We don't hold off when the patient is calm and non-threatening, and we do strip the ones with tattoos and leather jackets if they are threatening self harm, harming others, or are wanting detox. Its standard practice because anything and everything c...
  13. Just finishing up a MSN in Nursing Administration. Wondering if there is any benefit to also having a Masters in Healthcare Administration vs a DNP? I would like to make myself more marketable.

    Nurse bringing child to work

    My idea of compassion is when my husband's hip was surgically glued back together, leaving me to beg for friends to babysit my four children. They all came through and I was able to get my shifts done. I would do the same for a coworker...away from w...

    Nurse bringing child to work

    I am compassionate towards my coworkers. That being said...the child should not be at work. If something happens like a fire, she is going to be going to her child instead of her patients who need her. Infectious disease? I remember when one of the f...
