    Nursing Is No Longer Worth It

    This is why it isn't worth it. I'm not a saint.

    Millennial Nurses Have Issues

    That is insulting to me.

    What to say in exit interview

    Just say you are ready for a change. Simple and truthful.

    Webcams in Nursing Homes?

    A nurse I talked to recently said she had one aide for 30 patients, many of which were incontinent. How do you keep 16 or so people clean and dry or feed 10? Someone will be getting cold food or sit in urine for awhile. That is a sad reality.

    New grad stuck between options

    Acute rehab is a lot like med/surg. Extremely busy, but not as bad on night shift. I would recommend thinking about what your overall goal is. Do you just want to work? Do you want career growth? Are you more interested in practicing nursing skills? Where do you want to be in 5 years? Maybe this is just a good starter job? It's a lot to sort out when you have the responsibility of children. good luck.

    First RN job, and I'm having second thoughts

    I have never started a new job where I didn't feel incompetent and stupid. It goes with the territory. After awhile, I become more competent and knowledgeable. It's not called a learning curve for nothing. Keep plugging away, keep trying, and keep your eyes open for something better. Good luck.

    Does it get better ?

    If the unit has attainable goals, then yes, it will get better.

    I was fired from my first nursing job after 3 weeks

    I feel for you. If you want to be an ED nurse, don't let this break your soul. Try to get on where you did your preceptorship. Sorry this happened.

    Nurse bringing child to work

    I think this is a bad idea.
  11. They got this backwards. Nurse dissatisfaction led to poor quality outcomes. It's pretty simple, happy nurses =happy patients.

    Social Media and Doxxing - Your Thoughts???

    Yea, that's someone who stirs the pot with a big spoon. I wouldn't want to be friends with someone like that.

    Questionable actions that make you go hmm?

    I had a surgeon look at my tonsils from across the room and said I didn't need surgery. I had 7 bouts of tonsillitis in one year. I finally went to see a good doctor, he removed, them , and all the scarring, even up to the roof of my mouth, I have never had an ear infection since and definitely no sore throats. What a DA that first guy was.
  14. The last hospital I worked at if you had a certification you displayed certified with an extra red tag, it was hospital wide. I liked the idea. Where I am now they don't do any at all. Just RN

    Dream Job offered

    A dream job offer and you know the environment. That is a dream. Yes, I'd do it. Keep a business approach about leaving. It's nothing personal , just business.

    Orientation, alot at once.

    Getting better, thank heavens. Once the person that was training me stopped watching over my shoulder I improved significantly. Still some anxiety though. But, overall it is going more smoothly. Those first 3 weeks nearly did me in.🤪
