    The nurses are the easiest to throw under the bus. Do you think they want to get rid of their surgeon and start with someone else?

    So what she did is childish, really? Your  post is not adult like.

    Workitinurfava got a reaction from Nurse Beth, MSN in Fumbled During Interview and Lost the Job   
    I remember fumblinga little during my interview but I stayed confident. I said hmm, well, and let me think, to give my brain time to think of certain situations. All questions don't have to be answered straight away. Give yourself time to process the question and run a quick answer to it in your head before speaking the answer out loud.

    "go back to your supervisor and tell her you need to talk to someone".  -------------------------------
     
    I am sure she knows to do this. Her situation I feel is helpful to a lot of nurses that may find themselves in a similar situation.

    Don't let giving great customer service get in the way of you protecting yourself. Many patients know about the press ganey stuff and they use it to their advantage. I bet he left the part out about slapping you when he filled out the forms. He probably did put on the forms that his experience at the hospital sucked though. Please report this.

    Workitinurfava got a reaction from Krispy Kritter in Is this nursing?   
    You made some great points. I think that appropriate staffing could make a difference in all of the areas you discussed. I had a friend get punched and cursed at by a patient because she took to long to get back to the patient. Nursing is having the appropriate staffing to do all things a lot better or to ateast have a chance to do things better. How are we really helping patients if we are rushed and can't get to them in time?

    Workitinurfava got a reaction from Florida Sun RN in Anyone else regret becoming a nurse?   
    I feel that she doesn't like the conditions of the job ( there are many people that don't, not just her)  but she tried to make it work and it didn't, hence the job hopping. She could have done things differently and still ended up in the same situation.

    Honestly, your job doesn't sound too bad. Stay put. Most of the places you mentioned require blood, sweat and tears to work.

    Workitinurfava reacted to Oldmahubbard in would you tell a manager how toxic her floor is?   
    At one point I worked at a place that was toxic beyond words. I was at an unfortunate place in my life where I believed I was the problem.
    Going out of their way to be unpleasant. Yes, that's it.
    I couldn't resign due to financial reasons, and at last it was no surprise to be fired.
    I got a call from the union a few days later. Something is wrong. I was the sixth person in that position in less than 2 years.
    They know. They aren't doing anything about it for some political reason.
    And yes, you should complain and leave as fast as you can.

    Workitinurfava got a reaction from It'sYaGirlK, CNA in I dont think I have the personality for nursing, and may need to switch majors...   
    Sit down and compile a list of why you want to be a nurse and also write down what you want in a job. Next look at the reality of the things you are writing down. See the work for what it is, and not what you want it to be ( don't see it as a fantasy). You can't  fight city hall or let all of the animals out of the zoo because you want things how you want things. but you can make a difference if you are in it for the right reasons.

    I am wondering why no other meds were considered to help this patient sleep? Ativan is not normally the first choice an MD goes with to help a patient sleep and not only that it can become addictive especially when being used for sleep. The other thing is if this med is stopped abruptly it can lead to rebound insomnia.

    I wish more nurses had the opportunity of becoming nurse techs, granted they meet the qualifications because they would have a better view of how it would be as an RN.

    Workitinurfava got a reaction from TAKOO01 in Job change - anxiety   
    I tried working M-F and it was hard. I want to be done with work after 3 days. It is what I am used to. I want to know that I can schedule health appointments etc., when I am off during the week (without using leave), and I also want to be able to take vacations using a minimal amount of days. The days went by fast when I worked M-F and not in a good way. I actually felt more tired working in this way. It would work for me if I worked from home I think, and not with a field nurse type of job. I took a pay cut to work M-F. Training was worse compared to the bedside type of positions. I felt squeezed and was expected to do the work of 3-4 nurses. I am looking to get back into what I was okay with. The work enviornment was the issue. I figured this out recently. Things changed so frequently at the previous place, very minimal organization, we used paper charts, staff was barely around to assist the nurses. At the new place if I end up working at it, there will be a MD accessible 24 hours. There is a schedule in place for the patients so they know what they  and we know what they will be doing day to day. I will have less patients. My pay will be higher with the same rank. I plan to do something on the side while I work as a nurse a few days a week. I would not be able to do anything on the side if I work M-F. When I was shadowing the place I saw a nurse eating lunch. I kid you not whenever I shawdowed a place I never saw the nurses sitting down eating lunch.  I feel working the 12s may let me test out another type of career without leaving the nursing field all together. Do what is best for you though.
