  1. Should I make a stink about this?

    There are a couple of lessons that can be learned here, OP, that will help you in your future endeavors. 1) If you didn't document it, you didn't do it. Takings others' assumptions for granted would get you in trouble as a nurse pretty quickly. 2) St...
  2. What would say to a nurse shadowing you

    OP is either a foreign teacher teaching English as a second language, or OP is lying about being a teacher. One of these things has to be true, otherwise God help the school system or country that would employ, let alone certify, him/her. I've read f...
  3. Thready is weak, which is the opposite of increased. Are you asking why it isn't increased and decreased at the same time? I think you may have gotten some terminology confused. Why it's weak, makes sense if you think about it. You have decreased vol...
  4. Spiking IV fluids by PCT's

    I don't know what state you're in, but Texas has a resource guide on delegation. https://www.bon.state.tx.us/practice_delegation_resource_packet.asp Nurse educators also tend to be experts in delegation and scope of practice, so I'd consult with the ...
  5. Pneumothorax question

    I know that some pneumos resolve on their own, regardless of whether they're traumatic or spontaneous, so I think it'd make sense that if a small one doesn't resolve on its own, you'd get a worsening of s/sx at the very least r/t a prolonged period o...
  6. Are You Protected Against Identity Theft? - FREE Offer for Nurses

    I just enrolled. The biggest issue was resizing my proof so that it would fit. And then for some reason also, my gif didn't count as a valid file type, so then I had to go back and do a jpeg. Kind of a pain, but... it all worked.
  7. Apologies for using the term "NETY"

    ... is this true that this happens? If so, that's terrible, and it makes me really, really sad. I've never even thought of nety in reverse or the horrible justifications for it. Also, the problem with so many of these arguments is their modalities. ...
  8. Dallas/Fort Worth Student, interested in Peds

    At UTA, you're going to do clinicals at Children's. If you do well in clinicals and really get to know and impress the managers, there's a pretty good chance they'll offer you a residency. When I worked at Parkland, we had girls come through in their...
  9. new grad: cant find a job

    I'm going to say this and then run and hide in a corner. I'm not saying I agree with it or advocate it. I'm just sharing what some people I've known have done. FYI, I did not do this. Some people who do residencies that require contracts don't honor ...
  10. Apologies for using the term "NETY"

    I had to go back and look at your thread to see why you're apologizing OP, but I see how you used it incorrectly. It's using it incorrectly and the assumption that lies behind using it at all that's the issue. 'Nurses eat their young' is just a group...
  11. Decreased pay during orientation?

    Hospitals incentivize preceptors. Some do this with an increase in pay, some do it with extra PTO, etc. Precepting is hard, and (take no offense if you have) it sounds like you've never had to do it. Precepting slows down your preceptor, puts extra w...
  12. Accelerated BSN

    Nursing schools are competitive, but they're not nearly so competitive that they would weed out applicants with stellar GPAs based on quality of schools where grades were received (excluding technical and pay-to-graduate schools). And if you're going...
  13. In desperate need of advice

    There are some fallacious statements in your initial post, like that 98% of people are hired guaranteed. Past statistics do not guarantee future ones. And when you factor in that more and more hospitals are forcing BSNs on ADN nurses and not hiring A...
  14. I am a real nurse

    Never, ever equate putting a stethoscope and tasking with 'real nursing.' You don't ever have to justify your work to other specialties. I started off my career in psych nursing, then switched over to PACU and GI. I do such a wide variety of tasks. I...
  15. 'Diagnosing' co-workers?

    So a tech where I work was volunteering for a health fair, and she asked to borrow one of the unit's manual bp cuffs. She wanted to try it out on someone first, so she asked another tech to take his bp. He agreed, and I (don't judge) was nearby eatin...
