    Why Nurses Are Leaving the Bedside In Droves

    no surprise! With management changing for the sake of the $$$$. wE SEE on this side of the border. Many supers & general management have no idea HOW to manage.

    Methadone clinic job offer

    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!

    We'll Have A Farting Contest If You Let Me Put An IV In You.

    aka: think like a kid..or simply ask the kid what he wants. Make sure you have a change of underwear, FARTS can be messy! And enjoy.

    Pregnancy and nursing school

    its doable but timing is of the essence. remember, keep yourself clean of booze & drugs, and smoking during the 9 months. Give the kid a chance because everything you take in, the kid gets.

    Why do you visit allnurses.com?

    get used to it..it aint gonna change. The $$$ is in command. A lot of hospitals in the usa are run like donut stores chains. We see that in Michigan. Loyality to the hospital has changed. Tis the management that is asking staff to do more that it outside of nursing. Plus we are seeing a lot of Asian & Middle Eastern professions coming in who do not know how to relate to our system or staff. They stick to their own culture. Racist? Maybe. But thats the way it is becoming.

    Why do you visit allnurses.com?

    to read the silliness of hospitals and nursing staff. The management has evolved as poor quality supervisors who have no people skills. We saw evidence of this recently in a major teaching hospital in our area. I could nto believe what I heard.

    Assessing the student on drugs

    define DRUGS..Pot, you can smell! If they are on presciption drugs, you need details..side effects etc. Pot you can smell, like cigarette smoke on clothing OR breath! Has your school a policy on kids smoking..pot or cig's. If pot, tell them to go home, they WILL disrupt classes.
