  1. Disrespect & Profanity

    I usually address MDs by Dr. Surname until they correct me because you can't go wrong and no need for a conversation with everyone about what they want to be called. Generally, I use profanity among people I know- lets not pretend the naughty wo...
  2. What will be your New Year resolution?

    I don't make new year's resolutions. If you want change, do it now- don't wait until the arbitrary date of January 1st.
  3. Should I quit my program?

    Short answer: No.
  4. Covid-19: Going Back to Normal?

    I know I'm jumping the gun here, but who's looking forward to having all visitor restrictions lifted, visiting hours gone, hoards of visitors back? Our patient satisfaction scores are way up, wondering what the hospital head honchos think is the...
  5. I Really Do Not Want the COVID Vaccine ?

    Long term health effects of the covid vaccination should be the least of your worries if you're a lover of true freedom.... the main issue is really about how many microchips Bill Gates put in it and how to get your tinfoil hat to fit so They can't t...

  7. Been away... Did I Miss Anything?

    Just a little under the weather (No Covid) and bored so I thought I'd see what's going down on AllNurses in 2021. Anything happen in 2020? Turns out I'm an "Adventurer" and interacting with me is recommended and I'm open to new things. What...
  8. New Grad: I Feel Stupid

    Dude... you've only been doing this for 5 weeks. Give yourself a real chance. You are going to make mistakes. No sugar coating here: this will be hard. Give yourself at least 12 months before you burn it all down. Bear down, batten the hatches ...
  9. First Reaction to Changes

    Davey, my first reaction is the same as yours. Big old "meh." I think it gives me another reason to spend much less time on here.... or none at all. I wonder if I can dislike my own comment? Probably be back every once in a while. I have a lot of stu...
  10. Any advice for a new grad trying to stay afloat?

    Just breathe, man. Everything is normal. Everyone has been exactly where you are right now. Your BSN isn't lifelong- you will eventually finish. Eat that less-than-ideal-score because what you've now learned the magic of group work and how to deal wi...
  11. Profanity in the workplace

    Expressing an oath towards a situation isn't a big deal to me, especially considering I grew up in the Navy. Swearing directed at people is where I draw the line. After all, you might be "happier, healthier and more honest" if you do swear: People Wh...
  12. Nurse Gives Lethal Dose of Vecuronium Instead of Versed

    What a horrible way to die. I don't want to fully blame the nurse, since there were many things that should have been in place to stop this accident from happening... but man... if you don't know the difference between versed and vec you might want ...
  13. Would you call in sick?

    If my math is correct, and only assuming the easy 50 minute commute and working a .6/8day per month schedule, that's still over 13 hours of driving per month. 32 hours and more of driving assuming working a .6 if considering that they are all the lo...
  14. Rising insurance premiums through work

    ::where's my soapbox?:: It doesn't matter. All I have to say is this administration and the party in power passed a tax cut this year for the absolute richest Americans and cut the corporate rate by 14%. Raise your hand if you're seeing any of those ...
  15. How do you deal with angry/upset with patients?

    Are you talking about normal everyday anger, angry that they are in the hospital angry about condition etc, or are you talking about mental health?
