  1. Advice PLEASE - Considering Nursing @ 39

    If you hear 'the call' then do so. You're still young to start a career in nursing. Good luck!

  4. day shift nurses vs. night shift nurses

    I currently am contracted to rotate between day & night. I don't like nights much as there are less nurses and can be a nightmare. Then again, there are days when you feel the same way about day shifts. I am properly awful in the mornings but fu...
  5. Why are nurses such back-stabbers?

    I agree with NurseHobbit! Some people's lives are just so empty that they just have to excite it by aggravating someone else's. Unfortunately, this happens where I work now. We have been merged into one ward ( Male & female ) and there is this o...

  12. Thank you's - memorable ones you've received?

    chocolates and a general 'thank you' cards to all are always welcome and nice but i have personal faves. i used to work in the private part of a london hospital and i received these personalised 'thank you' letters and cards from patients. i still pr...
  13. What is the major reason nurses leave?

    all of the above reasons. more so now that the nhs is in crisis and very chaotic. no-one seem to care anymore ( it feels very much like this where i work ). has anyone ever notices that nurses are so often used as an emotional/stress/anger punch bag...
  14. fear of vomit?

    Me too! Give me double gloves and a pinny, I'm good. I can handle blood, other juices that the body produces ( LOL I'm rhyming here! Haha ) I can handle 'em all .... except thick greeny plugs of phlegm!! Yuk! See? I can't even spell it!! Is that how...
