  1. Hi all - I have always worked full time as a LPN since 2012 but after having a baby, I have gone back to work in a new position as a per diem float. I work outpatient for a large hospital system covering 85+ offices. When I asked to go per diem, th...

  3. out with injury and more

    Thannks very much! This isn't workers comp related (thank the Lord as I've seen the struggles people have with that! Haha) just my own klutzy self. I am recovering well & already weaning off crutches. Thanks to everyone for the kind words and ad...
  4. out with injury and more

    A little limp (bearing weight on heel vs toes) and a speciality shoe is all ive got. My job also accomodates injured cnas with desk work, but the same accommodations were not offered to me.
  5. What does your nursing career repair bill say about you?

    I love every word of this! Perfectly said!
  6. What does your nursing career repair bill say about you?

    I wish 18 year old me had all the knowledge of 30 year old me:) I wouldn't have gone to a 4 year school at 18 just to take 5 years to graduate with a fancy piece of paper (useless bachelor of arts in psychology degree). Did LPN a year later because a...
  7. out with injury and more

    I agree and should have mentioned I have to use short term disability which is only 60% of my base pay OR use my own sick/vacation time which I had other plans for. I am just so sad over this. I sound like a baby I know....and crazy....but I'd rathe...
  8. out with injury and more

    A few days ago I broke a bone in my foot (outside work) and I require crutches for a couple weeks, NWB til off crutches and then a special shoe for 2-4 weeks after that. I'm a charge nurse in LTC on a floor. My DON won't allow me to work the floor wi...
  9. Administration of PRN narcs too close to scheduled meds??

    At my facility we treat them as separate orders. Scheduled meds are scheduled for a reason, PRN meds are there as a back up :)
  10. Feeling VERY Incompetent

    Unsure where you live, but what you are saying IS NOT THE NORM. I have practiced nursing in CT, MD, VA and DC. Nursing shortages everywhere, job postings up the wazoo. This goes for LPN, ASN-RN and BSN-RN. As for male nurses? High in demand as w...
  11. Denied PTO for my marriage

    1. a huge congratulations on getting engaged! 2. your work seems to have a very strict policy! 3. if you already booked a venue etc, call out if you can't find coverage. what are they going to do, fire you for calling out? illegal. just make sure ...
  12. Why I'm leaving nursing

    I agree 100% with everything you have said...I've been a nurse for 4.5 years. While I still feel pride going into work, its dwindling.
  13. Conflict with Charge - 6 Month Review

    LEAVE THIS JOB. What kind of hospital only has 1 doc in the building, of which whom doesn't respond to a code?! Think about your license.
  14. How to politely tell a patient "do it yourself"

    Very simple, state the following "I am sorry, but I am here to provide medical/nursing care to yourself and the other patients in the building. I am unable to ***insert request here*** for you". You could even state the company does not allow it's ...
  15. Husband became a RN

    I can understand your resentment and your mentality of "get your OWN career" 100%! My significant other has been an electrician for several years, but comes from a long line of nurses. He recently decided to go become an EMT. There's a big part of...
