  1. male nurses on the rise

    I however, I have run into many gender type issues in my experiences. I am not sure why there are so few nurses that are of the male gender. I have been regularly disappointed with the communication or lack or from my female colleagues. Also the l...
  2. This is for all the students I freaked out...

    Kday, I'm glad I caught you on the chat thingy. I have always enjoyed your commentary. I especially like the graphic examples! Students should read these, once in a while, to get a better perspective, I think. Take care of yourself, because who ...
  3. ER Doctors that are hard to work with!

    Have anyone tried directly confronting this abusive individual? The direct approach works best. Er nurses can take a little heat, and can usually dish it out! Be respectful, if possible, and talk it over with other staff. Then go up the chain of ...
  4. The Male Nurse

    Good for you Sunny. Have you noticed how the males seem to get the biggest, and the behavior problem customers. As well as the ones that don't speak English as their first language. Sorry to get off the track. No offense intended to the female he...
  5. Yes, And often my colleagues seem to resent it.
  6. The Male Nurse

    I hear #7 the most. No offense intended, to other healthcare professionals. At least we are not in Australia and called sisters. I do get tired, but not annoyed, from these repetitive questions. Maybe it our cultural bias, or naivete of the custo...
  7. What do you think?

    I think agency nurses are cool, confident, and control their own hours. Plus they get paid very well. Gee, I wish all nurses had those opportunities, as agency nurses. Travelers take chances and go to jobs that others do NOT want. Usually these i...
  8. AllnursesWAR.com

    We do NOT use therapeutic conversation on this board. However,please use some empathy, understanding, or avoid this board. Many have opinions, stories, etc that they want to share. I rather enjoy the different points of view to help keep or put th...
  9. Nursing and Euthanasia?

    10 years or so ago, in MN, a large teaching hospital tried ending treatment to a persistently vegetative person. It received national attention. The hospital lost the court case. A nursing supervisor wrote a paper on it from a religious point of...
  10. What keeps you comming back

    I like the big umbrella nursing works under. There are many nursing roles ie, school , clinic, homecare, hospital, with many different specialties, and others. If one area starts wearing you down, try another. Nursing has a plethora of opportunit...
  11. Poll - what's important to you?

    Do Anything about it? ***** and complain? Unions so far have not been successful, either. Benefits, pay, scheduling, and you forgot respect. There is now a report that women make at least 25% less then men. Hilary C has made some comments on tha...
  12. NURSING IN ALASKA !!

    Hey Boss, I reckon you will be disappointed when you see the cost for a nursing license in Alaska. I applied for one about 5 years ago, 250.00, no fooling. I also needed references. Most hospitals have their own websites, which include pictures o...
  13. LOUD MOUTHED AMERICANS!!!!

    I have lived over seas, and NEVER heard a Limey, Kiwi, or Aussie ever say ass. It is always arse, bottom, not ass. Lighten up, Scottie, if you really are one. You have the dreaded foot in mouth! I barrack for the Rangers. I suppose you like Cel...
  14. Is fighting professional

    I suggest you pick and choose what you want to read or believe. I support other opinions and ideas. Read Wildtime, or others that are worth reading. Take the blinders off, and realize the dilemma healthcare is in. Nurses are in the trenches or th...
  15. THE HEART OF THE MATTER, PERSPECTIVE...SURVIVAL IN NURSING...

    Whoa, Todd, you have been a nurse for such a short time. I am glad for your strong faith, but it is yours. You will need it to survive, and keep that cheery outlook. I have tried and failed to not become cynical. I rejoice in my good health, marr...
