    New Grad Needs Advice - Hostile Work Environment

    True because no face to face meaning oncoming nurse may not be able to ask questions which was feared to create gaps in continuity, also they moved toward bedside report for some time and also stressed importance of a standardized specific report sys...

    New Grad Needs Advice - Hostile Work Environment

    Hmmm...back in day I worked a few places that used a “taped report”. The idea with this was it would leave a nurse available to tend to any patient or staff needs instead of no nurses available. The downside was no interaction so...if you had questio...

    Is it reasonable for Nurses to be fired who "ran away" from work during the pandemic?

    Because it was a high profile event and they're all about appearances. Her arrest I think or I hope will be dropped down or completely once the smoke clears, then they can pay her unemployment.

    Yes, Employer Can Require Covid Vaccine

    NO NO NO, Just stop googling. You'll find every scary thing that could possibly be associated with the vaccine and is often half truth or blown way out of proportion! You can find stories and evidence from both sides always. My main thought is even i...

    Yes, Employer Can Require Covid Vaccine

    I hear what you're saying when it comes to the mandate, that’s an awful lot of control for any entity to have over your life and body. The schools mandate our kids though and I agree with that, but they don’t mandate EVERY vaccine. As far as the saf...

    Struggling! LPN School

    A&P was my favorite, I finished with a grade of 103%. My teacher drew big pictures on the board, sounds weird but it helped so much. It's been like 26 years and I can still draw the digestive system(the pulmonary and circulatory system is a strug...

    Is it reasonable for Nurses to be fired who "ran away" from work during the pandemic?

    I realize there are many sides to consider and we don't everyone's situation. No I DON’T think we should corner the absentees under a spotlight asking sarcastically if they enjoyed their LONG vacation. No I don't stick my nose in their business but s...

    Is it reasonable for Nurses to be fired who "ran away" from work during the pandemic?

    Just to be clear right off, I NEVER said that nurses were responsible for “starting” the problems. I understand that there's a completely separate conversation that can be had regarding the multitudes of reasons big healthcare outfits might treat the...

    Is it reasonable for Nurses to be fired who "ran away" from work during the pandemic?

    There's a difference between taking off a reasonable amount of time for a legitimate reason then getting right back to it, and intentionally ducking out of a crisis situation and leaving your peers to take it on alone...regardless of the excuses. The...

    Case Study: It’s a Lump, but is it Breast Cancer?

    How about the physical exam? Is the lump soft and pliable, can it be moved around? A mammogram will most certainly be ordered either way, but if the lump is hard and immovable it may be a more immediate appointment or they could possibly do an ultras...
  12. most nurses are "lifers" ...probably a big reason these companies can treat nurses as poorly as they do, they know how much has been invested in your career. I have no other skills to work in other fields(for the same pay that is) unless you count th...
  13. most cities have shut down any bars or "eat in' areas of restaurants or cafes so I assume you mean socializing at a private residence? Which is allowed in small groups. Truthfully its probably needed especially with nurses, we spend hours every day c...

    Crisis travel assignments for Covid-19?

    WOW! seems a little unfair considering the staff nurses that have already been beat down by this crisis. Understanding the need to have relief available and that travel nurses get paid more on a regular, but this seems like more that your average pay...

    SURVEY: Nurses, Are You Prepared for an Encounter with COVID-19?

    I work at an MAT clinic and we did have a disaster plan in place including response for a pandemic event. Strangely the plan for pandemic was not as detailed as that in place for natural or man-made disasters, though most of the steps could be crosse...
