  1. Something that has been eating away at me

    You'll never know for sure. Don't beat yourself up too much.
  2. Patients & Pet Peeves

    The patient or patient and family who view every encounter with a nurse or any medical person as a chance at a lawsuit.
  3. Psst....Let's Talk About Gossip in the Nurses' Station

    My workplace is full of gossip. A couple of culprits are experts at it....and leave almost no one untouched by it. That said, I am usually one of the ones talked about behind my back the most due to being a nobody with no friends in high places. I am...
  4. Bullied by a colleague

    Have seen it happen and it has also happened to me, but never have I seen it happen to someone who was often charge nurse. If you are going to be a NP at the same place of work, I'd do some networking behind the scenes and have her dealt with in an ...
  5. Social Class and Nursing

    I imagine a lot of people aren't paid well in Mexico. I don't agree that nurses are manual workers alone, etc. And, of course, we are knowledge based. We get tested on our knowledge for our licenses. I've known many doctors that were not the brigh...
  6. Social Class and Nursing

    True! Good point...but I did say the two together...the profession with the education. I don't think of a Chef being blue collar either. I wish there were a clearer definition. I'll have to do more research!
  7. Social Class and Nursing

    No. I don't think you can say nursing is blue collar. If a surgeon digs in blood and guts, does that make him blue collar? I think the "profession" and education make it something other than blue collar.
  8. Social Class and Nursing

    I'd say you are doing well, wherever you land!
  9. Social Class and Nursing

    I have never gotten that idea from anyone. Odd. I usually get the "admiration for nurses" dialogue -OR- the "I've had a bad experience with nurses" kind of thing, to a lesser degree....but never a reference to nurses not being bright!
  10. Social Class and Nursing

    I grew up lower class (seasonal blue collar Dad), pulled myself up to lower middle class and middle class, but incurred a lot of debt, so not sure where that leaves me now.
  11. Have been told LPN BAD idea

    Plenty of hospitals still use LPN/LVNS too.
  12. "Your job is to make me happy"

    This older thread popped up...but it reminded me of something I wanted to vent.....A question I have been getting a LOT lately--- How many patients do you have? The patient is trying to gauge what *they* think is busy or not! UGG I actually answered ...
  13. Lowest stress (still great pay) nursing specialties?

    They are all stressful in some way. I have done almost all of them. No kidding. Well, okay, I missed a few I just thought of. It is subjective. Where you fit best has something to do with your own unique personality and traits.
  14. Do you still have energy to cook after a 12 hour shift?

    Yes, I didn't say anything (write anything), but I was thinking this too. My crockpot would scorch and maybe burn anything in that time. I'd worry about a fire. There is only so much fluid you can put in it. I guess mine could be set for 8 hrs and it...
  15. Don't be catty (literally)

    A new take on NETY! LOL Oh boy....well, I don't really believe in NETY and have rarely seen it toward new grads. I have seen nurses who are older and/or more experienced (there is a difference!) kind of hang a new nurse (new employee) out to dry...me...
