    RN to BSN online...I am in a panic! Help me decide!

    I say go for it. I just finished my BSN online and now I would like to get my MSN. I went through IWU so keep posting on ur program through Aspen. I was thinking of using them for my MSN. Good luck!
  2. I feel you! That is why the position I have in Occupational Health is great. I am the only nurse in the factory .......it can get boring but it is so much better for me. There are so many different things to do in nursing that do not involve direct care.

    How do you deal with a toxic workplace?

    Just look forward to the jobs you have applied for. I know it is hard to but make the best of the time you have left since you are looking for a new job. Keep your head up
  4. I think you did the right thing. It is nice to have someone that looks at things and can notice a problem. It is scary to think that everyone was "just signing it out but not giving". I think you did a great thing !!

    Detox in Jail?

    I have worked in a detox unit in a local jail and we had standing orders for detox inmates. We started an IV's and then gave different medication per the drug/alcohol abuse. Monitored every 1-2 hours when they first come in. But the jail I worked out I could everyone on the detox program from my desk. I know it is a hard road but sometimes "tough love" helps but that person has to be willing too.
