I have been a member of this forum since 2008 and I swear I don't find a lot of positive things on this forum anymore. Instead, what I read are nurses fighting with each other about which specialty is better. When some members ask for an opinion what they get in return are criticisms. You have members announcing great news and instead get some naysayers. People, the old adage is true: If you have nothing good to say don't say anything!

Instead of fighting or criticizing each other we need to focus all this energy into something more positive like: making management and health care investors realize that we are NOT draining money from the facility but rather getting them more patients because of the care we give?

Ok. I'm done venting. Let the negativity begin!

This. Yes, there are a few posters over the years who have gotten either an eye roll or a raised eyebrow, but in general, my experience here has been wonderful.

I agree 100%. AN members have gotten so self-righteous and pretentious. Most of the time, it's the members that have been around for a while. The self proclaimed COB's. I would totally hate to work with some of these AN members because they are so doggone MEAN! I read some of the comments and all I can think is "Who hurt you?" Lol. What bothers me as of late is the moderators. I seriously HATE when they move threads to areas that get very minimal traffic, and the question never gets answered! How annoying! I post questions in the general nursing section because it is one of the places on AN where I can be sure that it will be read and recieve a response! So annoying.

Not everyone is on the computer. I am on AN on the app so I don't notice what exact forum they are in. It just shows the most recent posts.

2009 here. And a crusty old bat. On any given day,I will support my fellow nurses to hades and back. Sometimes, I see issues I don't agree with.. and I will call them out on it.

Think any negatives you perceive are from Your point of view.

Please accept my friend request. We need to talk.

If you hate all of so much.. why are you here? The stab of "I would totally hate to work with some of these AN members " is especially a cheap shot. I can assure you.. no matter what I have posted on AN.. everyone i have worked with appreciates me as a nurse, and a team member.

I agree with this aggravation. Particularly if it's moved to the wrong forum. I saw yesterday (I think) someone had posted on the general forum questions about WGU MSN program. Instead of it being moved to the WGU forum, it was moved to "nursing schools and programs" forum or something like that.

But for those of us who ARE on a PC or laptop, it can be frustrating.

I personally do not think AN is worse than it has ever been. Its about the same----for example someone posts a controversial topic innocently (or not), or insults are hurled at individuals or entire groups of people, and things blow up with pearls being clutched and feathers being tarred. Then the mods get involved and shut the thread down. Rinse and repeat. In between all of the drama, there are many posts with a lot of great information and advice.

I always look forward to seeing what's new on here. There are some negative people, some positive people, some goof balls, and some wise people who offer great advice. You get the whole mix, just like the real world.
