  2. Confesson--from a stalker

    I have to agree 100% There are so many smart, witty, funny, helpful nurses on this site! I cannot even begin to name them all! Nurses are awesome!
  3. Shifts too long

    My job offers online courses that are accessible from home! The courses are mandatory and we can do them at home in our underwear...and get paid! The most I've had to stay over was approximately 1 hour for a meeting...but again, we are able to atte...

  11. I want to throat-punch my co-worker

    Alright, I gather some of you think that I am the cockadoodee dirty bird in the workplace. Well we will see what happens this weekend when she and I work together again. I will update weather or not she continues to mess with me or not and what I ...
  12. Disability: genuinely curious

    You gotta know how to work the system...like my mother-in-law.
  13. Nursing documentation help

    "Discharge instructions reviewed with patient and spouse; both verbalize understanding. Discharged at 1800 with spouse via private car, belongings sent, scripts sent, condition stable."
  14. I want to throat-punch my co-worker

    I LOVE IT!
  15. I want to throat-punch my co-worker

    Watch the movie trailer! It's like, two minutes long! And then you will want to watch the whole movie!
