    Never Say Never

    That comment really upset me and made me think of the time when my nursing instructor noticed that I was quiet and not conversing with the group during clinical. She said, “If you can barely talk than how will you be able to talk to a doctor as a nur...

    What % of women don't know basics of female anatomy?

    This is very true, vulva/labia are forbidden words. When I worked in an outpatient lab we had posters that explained how to collect a clean catch urine. For males it said to wipe around the tip of the penis, no big deal. For females it said use finge...

    Ear bug!

    Having a bug in my ear is my absolute worst fear ever! One time I thought I felt something crawl inside my ear and I was too afraid to have someone look in case there was something. I started to get dizzy and almost passed out. I used a qtip and clea...

    In fear of losing my license.

    Many posters keep asking how he found out she was a nurse and where she works as if she is to blame. She said she met him through work which hardly makes him a "virtual stranger" or some creeper she met online. She knew him in real life.

    In fear of losing my license.

    And people keep telling her that she shouldn't have told him she was a nurse or used her real name which is terrible advice if you want to be a normal human being who is capable of having relationships.

    In fear of losing my license.

    Are we as nurses not allowed to use our real names or say our occupation when going on a date? I don't know. It would be kind of shady if I couldn't verify my date's identity or if he wouldn't tell me what he does for a living.

    Nurses with eating disorders?

    Im a bulimic in remission thanks to topamax. It is a miracle drug and has given me my life back. I have struggled with binge eating for over half my life. Food is my addiction and i think there is something wrong with my brain chemistry. Why can norm...

    Wrongful termination or being put between a rock and a hard place!

    Had the BON taken her seriously the first time, she wouldnt have had to keep calling and emailing them. It is my understanding that they sided with her employer from the start while breaking their own law by not requiring actual evidence as to why sh...

    Wrongful termination or being put between a rock and a hard place!

    Reading your story makes me want to go back to college and get a backup degree for when I get wrongfully terminated. What ever happened to innocent before proven guilty? Who is in charge of making checks and balances on the BON? Its seems like the BO...

    Seeking advice from all you Introverted nurses out there...

    I used to think that I'm an introvert but found out I'm actually a shy extrovert. I get anxious around people and have social phobia but hate being alone. I love going out and socializing, I'm just super awkward most of the time and make dumb mistake...

    How long did you stay at your first job?

    3 Months. I started 2 PT jobs within days of eachother. I was so excited to get offered jobs that I couldnt say no. Plus I was about 6 months pregnant at the time and needed a back up job in case one decided to fire me for not disclosing my pregnanc...

    Nurse to patient ratio for LTC.

    Where I work, it is one nurse in the LTC wing for 70-75 residents with 2 CNAs. Luckily the residents have been pretty stable recently so it isnt too bad. Just a HUGE med pass. The rehab side has 50+ and is a nightmare to work always. A million tube f...
