    DUI to reckless driving FL and BON

    Unfortunately, we cannot give you legal advice, nor tell what the BON will or won't do. Best to follow your attorney's advice, hold onto your license until they pry it from your cold dead hands. Good luck with this situation.

    Racial Refusals In Nursing

    Haven't checked in to AN for a while but the resurrection of this 2014 post peaked my interest. As a black nurse, I have had my fair share of racial refusals. As a younger nurse I was often re-assigned to accomodate the patient's request, but as I go...

    Staff sick with COVID-19 - what's your hospital policy?

    Sorry to hear this. Our system is enacting a policy that allows you to use paid admin leave if you have to quarantine. Let's hope more do this than force nurses to use their precious PTO.

    Coronavirus and Pay

    This is a rapidly evolving situation and we are in uncharted waters for the most part. Not everyone is able to 'call in' and each parent has to decide what type of child care situation is palatable to them. Just because it is a 'pop up' daycare does ...

    Terminated the third week into my orientation

    This early in your career you have time to forget this unfortunate adventure and start over. You may well have to suck up the hour-long commute for the time being and take a job at the other hospital. Work on being the best nurse you can be and hopef...
  6. Scammers are getting creative - we have to be vigilant. If I don't know the number I don't answer, if it's important they will leave a message.

    Coronavirus and Supply Shortages

    I hope it doesn't come to this. But it shines a light on the reality of many working Americans who do not have the luxury of paid time off. They are going to continue to work because they also need to eat.

    HR wants meeting or report me to BON

    Just because they say they are reporting you to the BON does not mean that they will.

    Missed check in with affinity with selection

    Just wow! If this is the first time you missed, fight this tooth and nail. At this point, you really have nothing left to lose. I am praying the supervisor has a heart and shows you some mercy.
  10. Try an online educator at an accredited school. They do not work fixed hours and you will be able to work it around your current schedule.

    Medical exemption for nighttime capstone shift

    You are dealing with a problem that many parents face during school and into their careers. If you think that your medical exemption will fly give it a shot. This is only short-term (during your capstone) so perhaps you can pay someone to come to you...

    NY- Am I in the clear?

    Sounds like you are good to go! You should also receive notification in the mail along with your license. You can also call the BON to verify your license.

    HR wants meeting or report me to BON

    Hang in there - work your new job like a pro. The wheels of the BON turn slowly and there is always the chance that your old employer will not report at all. They may not want the BON sniffing around their mess. I am sorry that you have to go through...

    HR wants meeting or report me to BON

    I am assuming that you reached out to your employer to schedule a meeting? Did you do so in writing (email)? If so and they have not responded - I would let sleeping dogs lie. If you have already secured alternative employment I suggest you keep your...

    Suspended imprisonment order

    I am not in Australia, and not qualified to give legal advice. If this is true sounds like you need a lawyer and prayers...
