    I'm So Over Nursing. I would rather work at Costco!!

    I accepted my current RN position in January after working a year in home health. I have had some awesome experiences and some horrific experiences. That's the way it is. My last one was horrific; our administration were geographically-challenged and...

    The Problem with Boring Scrubs...

    That is a very good point PsychGuy. Why not cargo pants of a certain color and polo shirts? Jackets? Personally I do think the scrubs are handy...I always make sure I have at least 9 pockets. But, like most guys, my scrubs do tend to slide downwa...

    Magnet(TM) Certification- Cost-effective?

    Well said! Very well said! The problem I think is that the road to Hell is paved with good intentions. I worked at a couple magnet facilities in which the work conditions for nursing was horrific and the turnover rate was ridiculous. They may h...

    Magnet(TM) Certification- Cost-effective?

    I would be very interested in seeing a study done that compares monetary compensation before and after Magnet status has been achieved and whether it covers the total cost of getting and maintaining the status.

    Magnet(TM) Certification- Cost-effective?

    As an admin, how much do you think your organization sank into it?
  9. My organization is attempting to become Magnet™ certified and I'm curious to hear from other RNs, particularly those in management about this issue. it seems that the amount of money being sunk into certification is ludicrous. Books, emails, manhou...

    The Problem with Boring Scrubs...

    Hello all. This is my first post, but I have read some of the other scrubs threads here in the RN Dudes (my fun term for male nurses...sounds cooler) section. Like others I am a little frustrated at the lack of "dude" patterns and prints for scrubs...
