  1. I Lost All Respect For A Colleague Today

    What a good story! Wish there was murder involved with all these details, I'd get my Investigation ID dose while reading ?
  2. WGU Sept 2014..Anyone??

    I'm also waiting to find out who my mentor is. I was finally able to access the orientation material 8/20. Waiting, waiting, waiting!
  3. Nursing and the Ebola Virus

    My source was the World Health Organization and I quote, "EVD outbreaks have a case fatality rate up to 90%" 50 or 90 percent chance still means death to me. I'm not sure how I should feel if I were put in a position to care for highly contagious pa...
  4. Nursing and the Ebola Virus

    Kent Brantly is fighting for his life. No news of his death.
  5. First job - HIV unit

    You need to be careful in every unit and setting you work in. Working with an HIV population is no different than working anywhere else. Also, in my experience, everyone who is sick miserable.
  6. Nursing and the Ebola Virus

    I've been following the news also and this is very serious. This disease progresses quickly. No cure and 90% of those who come into contact with it die. Physicians and nurses are dying Early treatment gives some kind of good prognosis, but it's symp...
  7. WGU Sept 2014..Anyone??

    I will be starting in September also. I applied for fafsa hoping for some grants. If it doesn't go through, I have setup self pay and they told me 25% is due by August 15. I have 43 credits to complete which include Micro and Biochem. Super excite...
  8. Am I Being Bullied?

    So sorry to hear about your experience. I am also like you, a person who enjoys talking to others, and my past experiences with other nurses has been somewhat similar. You just develop thick skin. You will have to tolerate it and branch out on your o...
  9. Is it worth it to call the VA directly?

    I've contacted them before. I'm not really sure what nurse recruiters are there for if they can't offer an interview. Same goes for VA's HR. I feel like this is hopeless. I understand that the job market is over saturated with new grads and people w...
  10. No one is criticizing you for not being a nursing student yet, it is simply a fact that is being stated. Nursing can be emotionally difficult. In fact, it is probably one of the most emotionally demanding jobs that a person can take on. You might ha...
  11. I'm not sure what you are asking. But here I am speaking for my self. Let me start with saying that there's no other profession in the world where the total needs and well being of a person is in your hands before anyone else's. That's why you first...
  12. Fully drain distended bladder?

    From my experience and understanding draining more than 1000cc of urine will cause the bladder to spasm and cause hypotension. For my own reasons I always clamp at 1000.
  13. Taking NCLEX at 2PM Today (July 1st)

    I took my test June 21. I came in inevitably nervous because it's who I am. I had 75% SATA and half way through at 35 I felt so good about it that I was convinced the computer would shut off at 75. When I made to a 100 I realized that I might be taki...
  14. RN's in HHC, How much do you take home weekly?

    Everyone has to start somewhere. Whether you are in home care or a hospital you still need to know basic assessment skills.
  15. I can see how this assessment can be designed for pre-licensure for example, but not for nursing BSN prospectives who already hold a degree and an RN license. My opinion is that the baseline is above the passing level once an ADN is completed. I fou...
