    Sexual harrassment or just an old creep?

    IMO, I'd follow the chain of command with this situation, for your own protection and job security. You never know how people might react when confronted with a sensitive issue like this, plus there's the possibility of a he said/she said situation.

    Opposite Sex Coworker Social Boundaries

    My husband and I are both RN's, so I'm familiar with how his coworkers are mostly female. Taking everything into account, this is a marriage issue. I'm not sure if the above quote means you have no intention of catering to your wife's concerns. If that's what you mean, then I think you're in the wrong. Your wife and her concerns should always come before your coworkers, and even more so because I assume this is happening at the home that belongs to you both. And, FTR, my husband has repeatedly been the subject of sexual harassment, and I've witnessed it also, from coworkers who supposedly were "innocent".

    Is this discrimination?

    I agree with this 100%. In all my years at various hospitals, having an RN license and years of experience determined my pay. ADN and BSN nurses receive/received equal pay.

    Report or not when administrators have favorites

    IMHO, this isn't going to go well for you, BUT, I couldn't live with myself if I didn't report it. There is a difference between a bad report, and no report, and you essentially got no report. I've been a nurse for a long time in various units, and I would be livid if I were you. She abandoned this patient - the patient literally did not have a nurse at one point. I would report this to whoever I needed to until something proactive was done. Good luck!

    I don't think i can be around this co-worker anymore.

    My husband is an RN, and he's been on the receiving end of MANY female RN's giving him backrubs, etc, and it makes him extremely uncomfortable. This doesn't only happen to women. He now makes it widely known that he doesn't want to be touched by anyone, for any reason. And also that he's happily married. I've witnessed the harassment he's endured from others before they realized I was his wife, and it boggles my mind that people think this behavior is appropriate.

    Charge nurse

    My husband has been an RN for 22 years, has worked almost every specialty in the hospital (right now he only works critical care units, PACU and the ED), and he's been nagged to be a charge for years. He HATES charge. He prefers to take care of his patients, help other staff out when needed, and go home.

    Got a hospital job after 10 year hiatus

    Congratulations! Was it difficult to find a job? How did you write your resume and get the attention of the hiring manager, if you don't mind me asking? I have a friend in a similar position who wants to return to work.

    Do you look up the push rate for IVP meds?

    "Do you look up the push rate for IVP meds?" Yes.

    flirting at the workplace

    I'm sorry, but this is hilarious!
  11. In my experience, the exact opposite is true.

    Anti-nurse commercial

    I'm so sick and tired of politics. You can't escape it, not even here.

    Stressed, Confused, Anxious

    IMHO, you will continue to struggle until you're actually doing what you love (the arts). Slow down and re-evaluate your life and choices. Think about how you'll feel for the rest of your working life if you're employed as a nurse. Do you really want to do it? It's not an easy job.

    Last week on preceptorship

    Make sure you know where everything is, and how to get whatever else is needed. Maybe look at it this way, what do you need to know to at least function on a basic level? A few thoughts: know how the rooms, carts, etc, are stocked, know where phone lists are, be aware of any common standing orders and procedures, know how everything on the crash cart works and where it's located. It depends on what trauma level you are, but I doubt they'll be assigning you with the most critical patients/traumas. Good luck!
