    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,"?

    Thankful To Be A Nurse On Thanksgiving

    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...

    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 pa...

    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...

    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 s...

    I love writing.
