    Overweight Healthcare Workers

    Let me say this, I'm 40, not a young twenty-something pretty girl. You know, the ones always complaining of jealousy. I've got PCOS, oh no!! I gotta worry about "the diabetes"!! I'm overweight. Most people think, old, fat, which equals unhealthy...

    Overweight Healthcare Workers

    You know, you can be overweight, and healthy. Just sayin. Signed, An overweight girl, who probably has a better sugar, cholesterol, BP, and HR, than most thin people. P.S. Thin, does not, equal healthy. I think this whole post is skewed.

    Marijuana and Nurses

    Every place does a drug test before you are hired. It's illegal here federally.

    Charting/Assessment Struggles

    If I miss something, I go back and assess it and chart it. I never go off of the previous nurse. Many times I am charting my initial assessment and realize I missed something. I get up, go into the room, and assess the items I missed. Its my ass...

    School and sterile gloving

    I just took my one pair of sterile gloves that came in my supplies and pretended they were sterile and practiced opening and putting them on over and over again. It takes practice, that is all.

    Would it kill you to say thank you?

    On a completely unrelated topic. What the **** is up with autocorrect? My English grammar is atrocious but autocorrect is actually managing to mess it up even worse than I do (and that's no mean feat ) 75% of my grammar and spelling errors are from m...

    Feeling extremely underappreciated

    I understand you are a paramedic, but your scope of practice is that if a tech. Many ERs use paramedics as techs, I'm going to venture a guess and say it's because of the ACLS or in your case PALS certification that can come in handy in a trauma. Y...

    alright Nurses...what is your dream job?!

    It's a varying level of things for me. Great teamwork on a unit, excellent benefits provided by a company, a company that understands my life is not my job. After that pay. Then location. You can have the highest paying job in the world, but if the ...

    Feeling extremely underappreciated

    So, your saying all the nurses do is sit there and play on their phones, while you run around doing everything? Who's assessing, passing meds, getting lab results, calling report, and discharging? Oh and let's not forget the massive amount of chart...

    When the Bubble Bursts

    This is an awesome post that everyone should read and take heed of. You can't take care of others if you don't first take care of yourself. It may be hard, especially when you also have a family to take care of, but make a little you time. Even i...

    Peers very Unsupportive

    I have read through your posts and I have yet to see anything unsupportive to you. What I am gathering is you have been trying to decide for well over a year. You feel most schools are disorganized and you at one point enrolled in a medical assistin...

    In NICU, but I want to quit Nursing completely

    You have to realize, ICU is a unit for the most critically ill and you are going to experience much death in it. Including NICU. NICU is not just babies that are born too small and go home in a few weeks. You will see codes. You will experience de...
  15. You are missing the point completely. Pre-Med students in sure think they have their path planned out, but I'm sure many change their minds. Unless your whole Pre-Med student experience is your friend. If you want to close your mind to others tha...
