    What keeps you going as a nurse?

    1) Best money I can make for only two years of education. 2) Caring for my family. 3) Helping an underserved group of people. 4) I'm great at it and learn quickly.

    Whatever happened to going to school to be a nurse?

    Spending my life caring for people sounds awful. I hope to do something useful with my career, like maybe design a mandatory geriatric euthanasia machine.

    What's the meanest thing a patient has said to you?

    Why on Earth didn't you say, "And I hope you ******* die in a fire. Too bad we don't always get what we want,"?

    Thanksgiving Thoughts - What Are YOU Thankful For?

    1) My husband. Truly my better half. We have been through so much, good and bad. He's the only one I could ever want. 2) My son. The miracle, the joy, the whole package that he is. It sounds arrogant and crazy, but I know he is destined for greatness. 3) My job in corrections healyh services. They need me, and they bring me purpose, and as many as four days off a week. 4) My dad. He shaped and tamed my character into somethin far better than what it was.

    Off topic: 8 year old found out Santa doesn't exist

    I'm unsure why people lie to children and think it's "cute." Teaching children irrational nonsense and then being sad when they catch you is just weird.

    Do you miss bedside nursing?

    I worked bedside 7 years. Hated about 80% of it. I work in correctional health services. I love about 80% of it.

    Rate Your Pain

    I hemorrhaged at work with an ectopic pregnancy. I was doing a med pass for 30 at a SNF. I had blood on my shoes, but I still was passing pills before I noticed. It was, in retrospect, 8/10 pain. The whole "must be unable to speak" to be in severe pain is a bunch of crap. Between my med pass and emergency surgery was less than 90 minutes. Listen yo your patients or risk killing them.

    6 Resiliency Tips for Your Nursing Staff

    Sometimes people I like suggest dumb things to deal with stress. Ypou know, like when my friends say, "Hey, let's go to O'Halligan's. It's nickel shot night!" No... I'm pretty sure if we go to O'Halligan's we're going to die. Let's deal with the task at hand. If you're stressed because of the work environment, distractions are Band-Aids, not solutions.

    Helping patients kill themselves

    It's the individual's choice to live or die. This is a ridiculous and ancient topic. Don't like the future of hospice? There are options. If you don't like abortions, don't get one. If you don't like same sex marriage, avoid marrying someone of the same sex. If you don't like PAS, don't do it. I'm not some edgy liberal; I just don't participate in things I don't believe in.

    Do most nurses not like writing papers?

    I love writing.

    Work Politics... oh boy...

    Keep it no-nonsense and professional. Let her finish her rants. Ask her if she's done. Then repeat what you've asked. If you never react, a month of this will likely break her histrionics.

    If you are an LPN are you married or in a relationship?

    I think you mean another word other than disregard. Also, I was kidding, kind of. A lot of nursing and activities around it are about emotional masturbation, so I like to laugh at my insensitivity. Also, cashmere.

    If you are an LPN are you married or in a relationship?

    I have no clue why I docked 26 hours. Too much looking at the schedule has killed my ability to use math.
