    Unreasonable Risks are not part of the job

    Well said! From a fellow RPN (who is also a RN-BScN).

    Refusing Care of a COVID-19 Patient Due to Inappropriate PPE

    This is excruciating . We're asking for BASICS.

    Non-compliance with Social Distancing

    Can anyone share articles, personal experience, advice, tips, tricks, etc... for how to deal with friends and/or family who are ignoring social distancing/ other public health measures with respect to Covid-19? At this point, I am trying to manage my rage . In the meantime, I'm just hoping our government moves forward with "martial law" type measures to take away people's right to be stupid and selfish and endanger the public....and, just put everyone on house arrest.

    What is an RN, BAAN?

    She has it listed as BAAN. None of my other nursing colleagues have ever heard of it.

    What is an RN, BAAN?

    In what province? I live in Canada and I'd never heard of any educational institution handing out BAAN degrees for nursing before. Nursing degrees here are either: BScN, BN, or BSN.

    What is an RN, BAAN?

    @JKL33 What kind of nursing degree is a BAAN? Is it some kind of associates credential? I've never heard of a BAAN, especially in Canada it's either BScN or BSN or BN.

    What is an RN, BAAN?

    A colleague lists the credentials "RN, BAAN" after her name in her signature. I've asked once before what it meant and she dismissed the question, refused to respond. What is a BAAN? Anyone have a clue?
  11. [h=1]Ontario's Doug Ford orders hiring freeze for public servants[/h] In Ontario, the public sector is made up of any job that receives funding from the provincial government. That includes a lot of services and infrastructure we rely on every day. The following jobs will all be affected by the hiring freeze: Universities and Colleges: This includes both professors and any administrative staff the secondary schools employ Crown Agencies: These are any government-funded research facilities and some museums such as the ROM The Government of Ontario: The government itself is in the public sector, meaning there is a freeze on hiring aids, legislative workers, and any other official provincial position Hospitals: This is a big one as it will affect hospital administration but also doctors and nurses Municipalities: A lot of municipalities receive funding from the province so any municipal workers and services may also be affected by the freeze Ontario Power Sector: While Hydro was big in the news for being privatized they are still owned in part by the province and therefore fall under the private sector School Boards: This is another big one as it involves school board administration but also both public elementary and high school teachers all over Ontario Sources: Ontario's Doug Ford orders hiring freeze for public servants - The Globe and Mail Here Are All The Jobs In Ontario Affected By Doug Ford's Hiring Freeze - Narcity

    No Respect.

    FYI - I've been a Nurse for over 10 years in the hospital, at the bedside in the germy trenches. I've cleaned up so much sh*t literally and figuratively that I'm not about to take it from anyone. COB badges come with time and years experience. So, I know that comment ain't about me Also, you graduated in 2016 and you're pontificating about nurses earning their stripes. Congratulations on recently graduating and earning your licence, but you haven't been an RN for more than 5 seconds. Take it easy tiger. I think there are some nursing students who can offer unique insights to this forum. I don't consider @ItsThatJenGirl to be one of them. Her comment was pompous and just screamed how green she actually is. If she dares to walk into her clinical placements with that attitude she will deservedly get eaten alive

    Why do some nurses hate it in others pump at work?

    Are you kidding? Even if this negotiation still takes place in advance there are many nurses who take advantage and don't reciprocate when help is given to them. Also, no one expects anyone to be psychic but it's generally considered good basic manners to offer your assistance to someone who has gone out of their way to help you, even if they don't ask. I have a 1 strike policy: if I help you out during a shift and it's not returned when I ask for assistance... I will never help you again, or switch a shift, give you a reference for a job, etc... Nurses who take advantage build a reputation and burn bridges to the point that eventually no one will help or want to be affiliated with them.

    Why do some nurses hate it in others pump at work?

    Lifestyle choices should not interfere with a person's ability to do their job. Having a baby is a lifestyle choice. It becomes inappropriate when the accommodation is not used for the reason it was intended, and when additional time is claimed to be required (outside of what was already generously allotted to pump) and approved and you're caught using this time extra time to instead to have extra breaks to rest, read, eat, check your cellphone, etc... forcing your colleagues to take on a lot of the care of your patients. I suspect that the travel nurse the OP wrote about may have very likely been at their wits end for being taken advantage of. Who really knows?! Having a baby is a lifestyle choice. So, people need to be responsible for themselves and contemplate and reasonably try to plan how this choice will impact their lives. At the hospital you are not the patient, you are not the priority and while you are at work your patient deserves your attention. If your priority at work is your baby over the care of vulnerable patients who depend on you, perhaps you're not ready to come back to work? Having a baby doesn't exempt anyone from being responsible for their nursing duties. No one should be responsible because someone chose to inconvenience themselves. I worked while I was a caregiver to my father while he was dying from cancer, but when I was at work I did my bloody job and didn't make my coworkers suffer because my life changed. The difference is no one chooses to have cancer... No ones time is more valuable than anyone else's. Career professionals need to be respectful of their colleagues time, and reciprocate when people go out of their way to help them. The law protects nursing mothers, this is true, and I've sadly seen many women take advantage of this as an opportunity to get away with lighter duties or take their sweet time on frequent/excessive breaks when they were fully capable of their patient assignments.
