  1. I have ADHD. I can get tunnel vision, which can put off some people. It's sincerely accidental.. and it is still annoying for others. A few weeks ago I approached a nurse who seemed to be just really bothered by me and she straight up told me that sh...
  2. In my 3rd year of nursing I had to do something similar. Young nurse forced to make a very difficult decision, and it took me awhile to process through it all, and "get over it". Looking back I can say it was really the wiser thing to do and I am rea...
  3. Hey everyone, would appreciate some thoughts on this situation and what you might do if in a similar one.. I work in the ICU. Recently I had a patient who went into Afib RVR. 2-3 residents were with me and instructing me while I was helping thi...
  4. its a good response to the general public and an important thing for every nurse to understand. its just not helpful right now
  5. I hate that this happened to you. Im sorry this happened. I appreciate the vulnerability here and the share. When youre in it, its VERY hard to see things clearly. I logically understand that’s happening however theres what feels like a full o...
  6. CRRT: Providing Optimal Patient Care

    Gotcha. Thank you!
  7. I did. EAP & last counselor responses seemed to be more focused on getting me the right help & most appropriate help. They shared that they get a lot of calls, mostly COVID related, lotsa nurses working w/ COVID patients call.. They will ofte...
  8. I started in ICU as a new grad and did the 50/50 flip flop day/night life for 3+ years. I was only late twice that I can remember. Once because of traffic after a nasty accident. Four other nurses were late that day too for the same reason. Second ti...
  9. I appreciate the feedback - especially those who have shared with me very practical ideas with kindness. I understand some people believe that a person "just needs a fire lit under their butt" however that doesn't work for me. Esp not right now. ...
  10. I'm processing the feedback. Some have been helpful. For anyone who feels like kicking a horse already down: that is a reflection of yourselves. So just chew on that some. I would not be sharing what I am sharing on a forum so public this if I w...
  11. Are you joking? Cause its not funny. ... I did this to myself? I chose this? It's all my fault. Big THANKS for the super helpful support -_-
  12. A question for anyone in a leadership position: How would you deal with a nurse who is struggling to show up to work on time… when they’re stuck in some unfortunate situations that they cannot always control? Lately, I have been showing up late ...
  13. New Grad Needs Advice - Hostile Work Environment

    EAP can offer some solid, confidential advice. Would look into that if I were you. EAP can guide you through both the professional actions necessary for you to take, and also help you sort through and deal with the mental gymnastics that these situat...
  14. How to handle difficult co workers when you're the new kid on the block?

    Also, my response is being compiled so the rest is just a general response to this thread: When I say I feel like I need to watch my back: I understand that its just a feeling… but ignoring, pretending their poor behavior doesnt exist, “burrin...
  15. How to handle difficult co workers when you're the new kid on the block?

    Maybe she was written up; maybe she wasnt. IDK enough to recognize the difference. Im guessing that would not be shared with me though. Whether or not anyone was written up doesnt matter to me as much. As long as things were addressed in a way ...
