  2. Why I'm leaving nursing

    This response to the culture shock of real life is a direct result of the self-esteem and safe space atmosphere we have created. Lord help us all.
  3. Why or why not CRNA?

    Let me share a little nugget of wisdom my wife gave me when I said the same thing to her five years ago. I told her, "I don't want to waste the next four years of my life in school." She said, "You will still live those four years. But in four years ...
  4. Why or why not CRNA?

    One more thing: I had a windfall $150,000 inheritance come in recently. I used it to buy a place of my own, debt free. Even in the depressed economy of Puerto Rico, it did not buy a luxury apartment. Nice, yes. A little love nest for my wife and me. ...
  5. Why or why not CRNA?

    AllRightMike, the CRNA role is not a "fast track" to a highly paid career. I wish it were, because it was what drew me into nursing. Along the way, however, I decided to finish my BSN and then go to medical school instead of spending more time purs...
  6. Passed NCLEX on 2nd try - ESL speaker

    Good morning everyone, I am pleased to announce that I passed the NCLEX on my second try. This post is for anyone who speaks English as a second language, as I do. Number 1: You can do it. Number 2: You must dominate English to pass this test. My...
  7. Getting bored. Recommedations?

    I caught that too, LOL.
  8. Home births gone wrong

    I swear, the time has come to write a book to blow the lid off this "natural health" movement. I remember in clinical practice a mother who came in with HELLP and was stable, but due to the influence of her -non nurse- "all natural" midwife would n...
  9. 22,000 Nurses Refuse *Mandatory* Vaccinations

    They have every right to believe Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey over medical professionals who actually know what they are talking about. They do not, however, have the right to work in the medical profession if they don't get that flu shot. As simp...
  10. 22,000 Nurses Refuse *Mandatory* Vaccinations

    Agreed. And actually, that was why the adults in the room urged the gay movement and other movements to find a non-government-imposed solution to their just grievances. Because we knew that all kinds of weirdoes were going to come along and demand th...
  11. 22,000 Nurses Refuse *Mandatory* Vaccinations

    Well, it is generally my experience that the likelihood of a nurse to refuse a vaccine is inversely related to their level of real medical knowledge. Some people willfully suppress the medical knowledge that is available to them for a variety of rea...
  12. Must we "pay our dues" by working night shift?

    Nurses who debate this topic need to keep in mind a very simple fact: In all industries that run 24/7, the employees with the least seniority get the graveyard shift. Those industries are expanding rapidly. It used to be doctors, fire officials, co...
  13. Bad Weather--Hospitals could care less about your safety

    It is my considered opinion that we nurses need to grow up and stop considering ourselves saintly because we are expected to show up to work. The girl who runs the cash register at the 24/7 Walgreens has the same weird hours we do and does not get p...
  14. Would you do it all again?

    I love nursing, and I will always be a nurse. But I am going back to school to become a doctor. Why? Because I know I can do it, and because I want to continue advocating for my patients in that role. No complaints, just ambition.

    You have got to be kidding.
