    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

  9. Thanks, i didn't get it beforehand. This helps me understand!
  10. 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 ...

    Everyone is going to nursing school

    It is impressive that you are doing all the patient care you do in the hospice setting. I bet that it is good getting to see both sides of mental health and hospice. That way, as an RN, you have many different avenues to consider. Thanks for the d...

    Everyone is going to nursing school

    Now, what exactly do CNAs do in mental health specialties? How would your day be different than at a hospice floor. I can see the result of that attitude even in myself. But, I think that knowing someday I'll be a little higher on the totem-pole h...
