  1. This doc makes me very uncomfortable . . .

    Replying to the post from Chuck: This woman was a physician? For real? Not some psycho off the streets? I mean, my grandma -- no offense to my grandma -- wonderful woman -- could have done a far better job delivering that poor baby than that so call...
  2. Book learnin' don't mean a thing...

    My fifteen year old son is going to take the nursing course in high school this year. They learn quite a bit there. I hope he goes into nursing. My daughter is also interested in being a RN.
  3. Book learnin' don't mean a thing...

    Congratulations, nurseinthemaking. Being in school is kind of like being pregnant. You give birth when you graduate. Then, you have the task of raising the child. Takes about twenty years to reach maturity. Please do not take that the wrong way. Ne...
  4. how long to wait for bloodtest results?

    Then, take the advice of the other nurses and show up at the office and get your blood results. A B12 deficiency can be determined from a CBC or a B12 blood test. I do not think that it was frivolous of your doctor to do an autoimmune check. But Lu...
  5. Drug Users in the hospital

    Interesting topic. No, I do not believe in passing judgement on people in a harsh and bitter way. Addiction itself is a sickness. I have compassion for addicts. Coincidentally, our first patient today was a chronic pain patient I have known for year...
  6. how long to wait for bloodtest results?

    The cause of your fatigue could be something as simple as a B12 deficiency. You can take shots for that. You could benefit from an antidepressant. You could have mononucleosis. If you can do it, go back to the same doctor and discuss your results. A...
  7. how long to wait for bloodtest results?

    Most old records are not that important. It is usual for a doctor to check a BMP and thyroid on patients. Nothing unusual about that. Usual for a doctor to check a CBC. You said that you have switched practices. Sounds like a good move, Tell the new...
  8. Book learnin' don't mean a thing...

    Good for you for passing. In my opinion, much of this sort of thing is a torturing process. In LPN school, I never had to do the handwashing thing. But there were other things. One thing that I remember clearly was being tested out on drawing up a sh...
  9. Drug Users in the hospital

    Even drug addicts get sick. In my practice, I saw one drug addict get his appendicitis overlooked and he nearly died from that. Then, he turned out to have Hodgkins Disease and really should have died from that. Very advanced by the time it was diagn...
  10. how long to wait for bloodtest results?

    I have worked in doctors' offices for years. I do try to call patients promptly with results. Occasionally, I screw up. Not very often but, when I do, I am honest about it. Is this practice a large practice? If so, I know from experience that things...
  11. RN who wouldn't be CNA

    No, you do not have to be an aide in order to be a good nurse. Nothing is set in concrete. However, some of the best nurses I have known and a couple of doctors have worked their way up from being aides and it seemed to make them more sympathetic to ...
  12. This doc makes me very uncomfortable . . .

    Cardiac One, So why don't you get the Midwife degree and deliver babies? My nurse midwife was excellent. Perfect. Patient. Coached me in pushing. Gentle. Tolerant of my Pakistani husband. Very attentive. Very personal care. I would have used her for...
  13. This doc makes me very uncomfortable . . .

    Sounds horrible. I thank God that a nurse midwife delivered my first child and a lovely Fillopino doctor in a one woman practice delivered my second. Both were perfect labors and deliveries -- no epidural. No drugs. No brute pushing on the fundus. M...
  14. Stuck in LPN mode?

    Two excellent posts, RN34TX and Nyoko59. Very thoughtful. Hope I got the names right. I have trouble with internet names.
  15. Stuck in LPN mode?

    I agree with LPN181 and Coopergirl. I think you should still try for a better job. How long will your license be on probation? My guess is that you would be hired. Even you call it LTC Hell and that is the way I always saw it, too. The only thing I c...
