    Accused of Doing Drugs, Would like advice from someone that been there (Accused of Drug Use, State Board Inquiry):"I am feeling very stressed and glad I found this site, I have only been in nursing for four years and I truly enjoy what I do, and have done well. Recently I received a letter from the nursing board in my state and they said they received a letter from someone stating that I do drugs and come to work stoned."

    Drug Use As A Nursing Student:"Hi all. I am a male nursing student in my 2nd semester of school. I have 3 more after this and will take the boards next fall. I'm really excited about all of the possibilities and most of all (not to sound too cliche)about the opportunities to change lives that I'll have. I do have a question for current RN's. I occasionally smoke small amounts of marijuana. I don't have remorse or shame because I know it's a personal choice that I let affect noone around me. I only do it alone or with very close friends. I don't sell it or try to get anyone else to try it." http://www.nursingdiscussions.com/drug

    ******************************************************

    Bias (Gender) Continues, The (Male Nurse) Nursingdiscussions.com:"Okay, you'd think with the great press and ad campaigns that have been seen this past year, nursing associations and their executive directors would become more sensitive to gender biased statements being made to the press, but nooooooooo! Here's is a quote from a major newspaper (I'll leave nameless) by the Executive Director of that state's (which I'll also leave unnamed) nursing association."

    Impaired Nurses, Nursingdiscussions.com:"Hello to all. I am new to this site and I'm so glad to find it. I haven't found a topic though that plagues alot of nurses;which is substance abuse. I became addicted to pain medication while working on an orthopedic floor in 1998 and began diverting pain medication from the hospital. Eventually, (thank God) I was intervened upon and suspended from work pending a psych eval. I went to treatment for a total of 7 months. Now, I am in a state monitoring program that watches me very closely. I am just now getting back into the work force, and it is so hard to tell these potiential employers about my past, even a little embarrassing. I was just wanting some feedback from some others out there? Their experiences? Stories?

    ******************************************************

    Medical School? (Why not), Nursingdiscussions.com:"Was asked an interesting question a few days ago, by a teenager who is interested in the healthcare industry. She didn't know whether she wanted to become a doctor or a nurse, and asked me a question. Which should I become? And why would someone become a nurse, especially with a BSN and not want to become a doctor? I didn't have an answer for her."

    More Foreign Nurses, Is It A Plot?, Nursingdiscussions.com:"Is anyone else besides me noticing more and more foreign nurses staffing hospitals each year? Heck, I almost think we're licensing more foreign nurses than we're getting US grads from nursing programs anymore."
    http://www.nursingdiscussions.com/foreign

    ******************************************************

    Put Male Nurses In Panties, Nursingdiscussions.com:"A recent letter from a male nurse describing his experience of being forced to wear female underwear was most interesting. The girls who did this to him and his roommate were absolutely right. For some time now I have been concerned over the appearance of my male nurses. Most uniform trousers are not opaque enough to camouflage the fly fronts of men's jockey briefs. Bikini briefs look just as ridiculous because the low waistbands are frequently visible below the jacket half of the uniform."

    What should I expect???:"Nurses, what can I look forward to or look out for when (not if)I pass the NCLEX with flying colors and graduate? What aspect of nursing was the most difficult for you to become adjusted to? What are you still having problems with? Is there anything that you would recommend to nursing students to help them with the transition from clinicals to actual employment?"
    http://www.nursingdiscussions.com/expect

    ******************************************************

    Would You Recommend The Nursing Profession?:"I'm having a hard time recommending Nursing right now. For a young woman of college age, there are too many other fields they can go into that have higher pay, more respect, better working conditions and less stress. Can't see myself recommending a job that will leave them close to tears at the end of each day. I know what things are like on the floors by personal experience and listening to my wife (an ICU nurse) vent each day. We have a daughter who will grow up with both her parent Registered Nurses in active practice. Will we encourage her to go into Nursing?"

Circumcision (Infant), Nursingdiscussions.com:"I hope this topic isn't too out of line for this forum. It tends to be an emotional one - at least when pregnant women discuss it. I am an Pediatric/Postpartum Nurse and have assisted with Circumcisions and cared for infants and boys both circumcised and uncircumcised."

Improvement (Self)

    Working to improove (Going Back To School, LPN, Education, Professional Development):"I am an L.P.N. with 10 years experience. I have done it all...surgery, doctors office, Tx. nurse in nursing homes, infection control, and now consulting. This is a new challenge all its own and I fear that I need more and new resources. I consult for a specialty bed and oxygen provider. We do D.M.E. and also have a closed door Rx. I have been with this company for the last 2 years and have a pretty solid position, however.... I now want to take this to the next level. I know getting my R.N. is the next obvious jump but I don't know that I have the time to focus on that step yet."

Infection Control, Infectious Diseases, Nosocomial Infections:

Nonnurse needs help (what can I catch?):"I realize this might sound kinda bad but....I'm 20 and love working with people. I just got offered a job at our hospital (just handing out televisions and phones and taking orders) but my concern is getting sick and bringing it home to my 2 young girls. I just feel that working their, I would catch alot and then bring it home. How often do doctors or nurses or the staff their catch something? And what are my chances of catching something? People go their everyday with stomache flus and colds. I know it sounds rude but I'm just concerned for my family as well as myself....can someone help me out?" http://www.nursingdiscussions.com

    Influenza (Flu) Vaccine, what's your opinion?:"Everyone is scrambling to get a flu shot this year, I'm wonder what the big fuss is all about? Is it only because we all want whatever we can't have?? Is the media causing the "crisis"? In the past, everyone pretty much ignored the flu shots, most of the people I know actually declined it. I understand why it would be beneficial for us, as healthcare professionals, but it's the general public that is freaking out about not having one."

    ******************************************************

    Influenza, how influenza is affecting your life :"Lots of overtime, wearing staff out, Most are working sick, go back to work to soon and get hit again,Also we have had a tremendous amount of pneumonia. Tougher season that expected, With records being broke with admits in a day, hold ever rooms for admissions and discharges during turn overs of room, and nonhouse keepers to be found in the place."

      The Flu this year...., Nursingdiscussions.com:"Hearing so much in the media about how severe the flu strain is this year and it seems to be just hitting my state- 5 deaths so far in the last week. I'm just wondering how it's affecting the patient load where you work? Getting lots of cases? Did you get a flu shot? This could be as bad or worse than SARS hitting Toronto. We really can't afford for the staff to get sick. Did your hospital provide flu shots for you this year??"

    Is 37 to old to work on a nursing degree:"I am 37 and looking to become an RN as a career change. Should I start as a CNA or LPN first? What are your thoughts on my age? I currently work in the manufacturing sector as a tool designer. I am concerned with the outlook of my job along with the health issues. I spend 90% of my day sitting in front of a computer."
