    What do you think about with current News and Opinions?

    Considering that it's 100% the truth, I'll encourage it all day
  2. Yep, I'm guilty of the same thing. My good quality/bad fault...I don't allow myself to be treated like a doormat. Assertiveness is great, until TPTB are trying to walk on you, then they call you "hard to work with" and "not a team player". Sorr...

    I wish that I could give this statement a gazillion likes

    To my friend DaveyDo

    If I wasn't working a 13, I'd give a yell for lunch. I'll catch you all one of these days. But have fun driving through my beautiful home state!

    What do you think about with current News and Opinions?

    MTG needs to be marched out from her office never to come back, she's a special kinda psycho...Boebert needs someone to pull her aside and let her know that she needs to cool it before she ends up in the same boat. Pelosi, like many in her age group-...
  8. Always a favorite nail biter, as I get my popcorn 🍿

    Allnurses Debates!

    You've made my day! I won't put myself down, too many others have, and I refuse to be there

    Allnurses Debates!

    What if you're Joe Dirt? I've been gigged so many times in life, I feel like I have a permanent skewer through my midsection. I just try not to take stuff too personally. Life's too short, and I'm too old to waste time to worry. Hugs sent

    Allnurses Debates!

    Agreed! A person with a decent personality will debate, with facts, or at least leave emotion out. A good personality will never attack others. We gig at each other on jest though 😉

    Allnurses Debates!

    If it's a topic that I care about, I'll debate it to the death. If it doesn't interest me, I'll scroll on by. I've had my skills and intelligence questioned, simply because my beliefs don't align with another poster's. Not worth my effort. But I do o...
  13. I prefer a good German double or triple bock bier. One of the first things, after coffee, that I missed when I came back home to the States

    Nurses That Never Worked In A Hospital...

    Odd that you say home health pays less than hospital. In all my years, and even now, hospitals in my area pay less than any setting, and the 5 area hospitals don't use travelers.
  15. Depending on when you started, that could be done. Many new grads coming out with limited job prospects, and will take/have to take what's offered. Many moons ago (1993) when I started, grads pretty much named their specialty and were picked immediat...
  16. That was going on when I was in nursing school back in the day...it's got to stop. Not everyone can be an educator, manager, data specialist, CRNA,or NP. There has to be someone at the bedside, and an incentive to help them stay there.
  17. I've done acute care (hospital), LTC, home health, hospice, and dialysis. LTC and dialysis are my faves. Yes, other nurses and family members have made snide, snotty comments. I don't let it bother me, their opinions don't matter. If every nurse work...
  18. I like being nobody. Keeps me out of a lot of trouble
  19. You made my day! ❤❤❤
  20. My dream list, right off the top of my head: DaveyDo, Emergent, SmilingBlueEyes, NICUguy, meanmaryjean, amolucia, toomuchbaloney, tweety, Jedrnurse, hppyg8ful, subee, Nurse Beth, and Grumpy...I'm sure that there's more, but that's my short list ...

    What do you think about with current News and Opinions?

    Now that's the truest statement I've heard this morning. It's a sad verdict on our judicial system...pun fully intended

    What do you think about with current News and Opinions?

    She's qualified, so I'm all for her nomination and the proceedings, which I hope are smooth and turmoil free. With everything else going on in the world, we need something that shows stability. As far as needing a perspective though, justice is blind...

    Switched to LVN from the Business World and am UNDERWHELMED!

    Thanks, I couldn't have said it better myself!

    You're given respect when you earn it. You're not going to get it walking in the door. Running to "tattle" on the mean nurse who wouldn't bow to the students sure isn't going to win you respect either. Try actively engaging with the nurses and you wi...
