try it! for 3 to 6 months..your eyes will be opened as to drug addicts and how manipulative they can be. Be careful with what you see and discuss around your kids. A meth clinic are people 'trying' to get off higher powered drugs, which sounds like an oxymoron!
courtesy has left the building! YOu start infusion(IV) near the end of shift. You advise the Boss Nurse at that time. She SHOULD advise teh next shift to check on it. Common Sense, but in this day & age, is missing.
get married first or is the boyfriend afraid of committment, then finish your schooling and work for awhile. Give your kid a regular family. Keep your legs closed for a year or two, not open for business. THEN once you have a regular job, then open for business! Stay off drugs & booze/smoke for a year to give the kid a chance at a normal life. Nothing worse then seeing a baby born from a addict, the baby does go through withdrawl, and it AINT pretty.

big words. If you dont like it, leave! They have a sub culture, that you are unable to cope with. Welcome to office politics! As long as they get the job done, leave your ego at the nurses station. Is the boss man/lady encouraging this?
I enjoy the terms used...Low Level group home! How ego on your part! Not everyone has the luxury of a catered retirement apartments, with $4K/month rent. The LPN was veteran and used language, EVERY one understands. NOW, hang your ego at the door next time you deal with a fistula in a patient. Your there to deal with a wound. Get off the Cross, I need the wood to heat the house.
