  1. Great article. I remember my SIL going through something similar with both her sons. Her oldest was an emergency C-section and while she tried to breastfeed, she gave up quickly when she wasn't producing enough milk. She felt pretty bad about it and ...
  2. Superbugs On The Rise; How Can Nurses Help to Exterminate Them?

    Exactly. We aren't allow to turn anyone away, so when we get them back and tell them we can't do anything, they get upset and some even bully providers into prescribing them what they want. We had a case of that with a pt with diverticulitis. Provide...
  3. Superbugs On The Rise; How Can Nurses Help to Exterminate Them?

    I work in a walk in clinic and this is a common issue here. We are located in an affluent area where people are use to being told yes. It's frustrating. We have people who come in frequently for "just-in-case" antibiotics to take with them on their c...
  4. What % of women don't know basics of female anatomy?

    I use to think my pee hole was my baby hole. But I was a child and my grandmother and mother kindly set me straight when I got my first period at 10 years old. I had my first gynecology appointment around then as well, because my first periods were p...
  5. I really do feel depressed about the situation

    Sounds like a pretty emotionally draining environment to live in. I echo the advice on moving out. Sometimes, it's not the job. Sometimes its the living situation. I'm sure your parents love you, but sometimes you just need some distance. Same thing ...
  6. HELP! Threats to call BON!

    I think you shouldn't worry. Your record speaks for itself. The facts speak for itself. Those questions on those applications are there to weed out the people who were found guilty. Putting yes just makes them look further into the matter and when th...
  7. So what's going to happen to health care now?

    From what I understand Trump wants to focus on the cost of health care and not so much the insurance companies. He wants to create more price transparency with providers to give the consumer more power and financial awareness when making healthcare d...
  8. What Job Did You Work While Getting Through Nursing School?

    I currently work as a PCT at a retail clinic where I will continue to work as I start nursing school. I will most likely go PRN and work when I have the free time.
  9. How to handle being belittled by superior?

    I recently had this issue. I would agree with previous posters. Just let it go. Sometimes I have to remind myself how stressful my superior's job must be with a lot of the things they personally have to deal with when it comes to cooperate expectatio...
  10. they say nurses are the worst patients....

    My boyfriend is TERRIFIED of taking pills. He swears he's going to choke. He will suffer through a migraine for hours or pull a muscle at work and ignore it for days. I've bought him the chewable ibuprofens for kids, but he still won't take them. HTN...
  11. Unsafe call house

    While I think its a great idea to provide a on-call house to nursing staff, they have a responsibility to either provide a safe, clean place to stay or reimburse you for a certain percentage for alternative accommodations. I assume by providing these...
  12. So is there really a nursing shortage?

    I think in certain areas there are. Think rural, border towns, lower income areas, LTC, etc. The less then glamorous facilities and areas. We will see where the job market is where I live when I graduate. I worry slightly, because I'm not in a positi...
  13. Wearing Scrubs Outside of the Workplace

    I work in a retail clinic in a grocery store, so I a lot of times don't have a choice. We don't have a locker room to change in and the bathrooms are always disgusting, because the public doesn't know how to use the bathroom without making a mess. Th...
  14. ADN in 2016 completely useless?

    ADNs are still hired in my area, but most are asked to sign a contract agreeing to earn a BSN within 5 years of their hire date. Luckily, I currently work in a position where once I get my ADN I can transition fairly easily into an RN role. I'm a PCT...
  15. Social Class and Nursing

    Personally I would consider nursing a blend of all 3 blue, white, and pink. Nursing combines aspects of all 3 if you think about it. Nursing is definitely physical if you work bedside, but it can also be white collar as all RNs are educated workers a...
