  1. You Might Not Want to Read This

    I am not a nurse yet. But, I would say very few people start out in their dream job. Most people, no matter where he or she starts, have to work hard in their first job to learn where they can go from there. You need to rejoice that you have somew...
  2. Obesity: A disease or a lifestyle

    As stated, it is a MULTIFACTORAL issue. All play a part in the disease, but I think there are psychological processes that reinforce overeating that are the biggest factor in the issue.
  3. Taking Patients down to the Morgue

    Well, I guess it is more common then I thought. Thanks guys.
  4. Workplace Cowardice

    Yeah, I noticed this today at work. My other PCA coworkers did not want to help me do turns for the hospice patients because they had "charting to do". I should have told them that I don't respect them not helping me. Instead, I ******* to the nur...
  5. Taking Patients down to the Morgue

    So, recently the policy changed to have to take patients down to the morgue. What the hell is that ********? Anyone else have to do that?
  6. NA 2 Class or Phlebotomy Class?

    I would go with NA2. Because you are already working in a hospital job, you will be able to do more nursing responsibilities than with just drawing blood. Plus, most hospitals have separate phlebotomists from CNAs.
  7. Beyond Burnout: What is Compassion Fatigue?

    thank you. what a great article!
  8. Get Your Foot Off My Self Esteem!

    The worst part of that is actually aspirating a IM shot now is not best practice. The fact the teacher probably is wrong about the concept is shocking.
  9. Anyone else feel this way?

    I think there is a need for more men in nursing. Diversity is actually quite a good thing in my opinion. This profession is still female dominated (roughly 10 percent male nurses). There are going to be biases of stereotypes regardless of what any...
  10. Morning and Night

    So, am I supposed to take from this that you love coffee much more than nursing? It is racking my brain.
  11. A 20 something like myself died on the floor I work on a couple days ago. I am fortunate enough to be able to help them out in little ways in their final moments. One small thing had been that the family asked me to order down a tray of spaghetti f...
  12. dont understan DNP

    There is only suggestion to move NP's to a DNP, but there are no laws in place as far as I am aware.
  13. Please Start!

    Yeah, i am not a door matt or someone who just does repetitive adls all day, I am an actual human being you can be friends with.
  14. Thanks, i didn't get it beforehand. This helps me understand!
  15. Is this really the year that NP's will have to get DNPs to practice in the state of Ohio? All I see is master-level schools. It really confuses me when reading about the AACN mandating the DNP and so many schools not adjusting to it. If I were to ...
