    Influenza and COVID-19: The Twindemic

    You say that as though there's no way to tell how COVID prevention measures have worked on actual COVID, based on data from regions and countries that have adopted various strategies. I've never had the flu in my life, but I got COVID 4 months into c...

    Fear and Anxiety

    In the U.S., drunk driving kills about 10,000 people a year. COVID-19 has killed 75,000 in roughly 3 months. Try again. The right to swing your fist ends where another man's nose begins; freedom doesn't include the right to harm other people.
  3. My state has had more COVID deaths in the first month of the infection than the flu has had this entire season. How is reporting that sensational or irresponsible? Have you looked at graphs of the increase happening in the U.S.? The world? Pandemic ...

    RN, ADN being obsolete

    My BSN coursework so far has been absolutely useless to my bedside nursing. An ASN is not going to be preferred, but it's perfectly reasonable for an employer to be indifferent to ASN vs BSN to consider other factors in who is most suited to a job.

    RN, ADN being obsolete

    That is terrifying! I only make a few dollars more an hour in the hospital now than I did in LTC/SAR during my first year of nursing, but I never felt like I was getting ripped off until the rent hikes that have happened here in the last few years. I...

    RN, ADN being obsolete

    I'm one of them. I'm a midwest city girl and have not had a problem finding employment in my 7 years with an ASN. I'm still working on my BSN though because of tuition reimbursement for a 12 month work commitment, and the desire to get the heck out o...
  7. I don't know a single person who hasn't spilled a drink on themselves. I also don't know a single person who has sustained third degree burns from spilling a drink on themselves. A lot of people don't know the truth behind that warning so I thought I...
  8. I see you have been taken in by the public smear campaign against the victim. Please educate yourself. McDonalds used to keep their coffee up to 190* for no apparent coherent reason. An elderly woman sustained third degree burns on her genitals and t...
  9. A few VERY important facts: Alex presented hospital policy that was founded in the local law. Payne refused to abide by it. He was presenting as angry: you can see Alex's discomfort and her saying she didn't understand why Payne was angry at her pers...

    Forced to do 12 hr shifts

    Guided meditation, ASMR, melatonin, calming activities before bed... Also coffee, tea, Diet Coke, and "Only 12 hours til I can sleep again."

    Are you discerning with your "likes"?

    Same here. I have an unfortunate level of interest in my post-to-like ratio. I also get stupid happy when one of my AN crushes likes a post of mine.

    Is it legal for your boss to dictate where you poop?

    Sugar alcohols can indeed be a real bear.

    Is it legal for your boss to dictate where you poop?

    Klone, you're putting a damper on my fantasy of moving to Oregon!

    Birds of a feather

    Don't worry, bipolar isn't contagious. Hats off to the nurse who has her mental illness well controlled enough that she can successfully handle multiple jobs. My psych nursing instructor was a little nutty herself. Couldn't concentrate to save her li...

    LGBTQ Patient Care?

    I would like to respectfully suggest that "Ally" is not an orientation or identity and has no place in the community acronym. Asexual on the other hand is. "Ally" is not part of your medical or social history in any way that is pertinent to you as a ...
