  1. How do your significant others handle it?

    Do any of you travel RNs have significant others who stay at home while you travel? I would love to travel but I have a boyfriend (we live together) who would have to stay home and work. I have heard varying opinions... from "you shouldn't leave him...
  2. Is this an accurate description of Nurses?

    I think the thing that bothered me the most (and mostly the reason for posting it) was the fact that it basically calls us doctor's assistants. ***? You would think the people who write articles for Yahoo (a huge company) would be a little more educa...

  4. How the heck does this happen?

    She told me there isn't one RN in the total facility. I actually did sit down and teach them the rights and told them to get a drug book. Just very scary to me. She said no one there is a nurse. I asked her if she knows the signs of an allergic reac...

  6. How the heck does this happen?

    My friend works at a group home for children with autism. She told me that she and her friend who also works there give PO meds on a daily basis to these children. (Seroquel, Risperdal, Lexapro, etc). She told me that they administer these drugs to...
  7. ACNP vs. ENP?

    Just curious...what do you think the outlook is for ACNPs?? I am always going back and forth in my mind as to what route to go... Adult NP, Psych NP, Acute Care NP, PA, CRNA.... ahh!! I like them all.
  8. ACNP vs. ENP?

    Whats the difference between an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner and an Emergency Nurse Practitioner?
  9. pa?

    Yes, you're right....lol....there are a lot of things wrong with this: First off, it's not Physician's Assistant, it's Physician Assistant. Singular. A PA does not belong to a physician, and too many people put that darned apostrophe 's' at the end. ...
  10. I should have said something...

    Noooooooo. My patient was not A) A 'drunk' or B) Drunk as in intoxicated. He was going through ETOH WITHDRAWAL. This is not a state of being intoxicated. This means he hasn't had a drink which is causing him to go into withdrawal. Please people lets ...

    Oh, and thank you Sanctuary for your kind words. You made me feel better. I feel this way as well, but sometimes feeling something is much easier than proving it through your actions. (especially around much more experienced nurses)!
  12. I should have said something...

    To elaborate on some questions from previous posters: This is a nurse who tends to get very dramatic very easily. If she asks for your help and you say yes but take a few more seconds to finish up what you're doing, she walks away in a huff saying f...
  13. Need a name for my aesthetics business.

    Skin Esteem definitely caught my eye as well. Can I ask what education you need to be able to provide such services?? Good luck!

    Maybe I didn't make my point very clear. I hhave no problem with the being firm part. I absolutely think it is important to be firm so as to protect safety of everyone. However, I did have a problem with referring to the patient as a "drunk."
