Need Opinions on the Legality or Ethics:"I have worked in a long-term care facility now for about 3 months.We have about 60 residents.Nurses are abondoning ship one by one. We have a few dedicated nurses who are taking on more and more hours to make up for the shortage of nurses. My gripe? When is it appropriate for a DON to tell me I should overlook something illegal or unethical? We had a LPN working in the facility for 2 months on a non-renewed license. The DON hired her back. This LPN has caused more havic and problems for the facility than I can name. Also, I am finding documentation of neuro checks being done when the resident was at the hospital. Should I even continue? Please read this list and tell me if I am totally crazy to work for this facility."

New Age Anorexia, Self Abusive Behaviors, Self-Mutilation, Scarification, Cutting:"Adolescents and young men and women frequently cut on themselves to relieve the inward pain and mental anguish that they feel they can only express that way. It's a form of anger turned inward, kind of like depression and also a kind of self-hatred or guilt. Many times the most INNOCENT looking kids do this. Quite a few borderline personalities do this. They say that cutting at least makes them "feel something"..it' called self-mutilation. A person feels so frustrated, like he/she has no control over anything but their own body so they cut on it and the pain gives them a release."

NEW RN & Hate it already, Ultimatenurse.com:"I need some advice. I am a new RN of only 4months. I work on a cardiac step down floor in a michigan hospital. I have always wanted to be a nurse, ever since I was in 2nd grade. I knew there was a staffing shortage and that it would be hardwork. However I never thought 4 months after achieving my dream and starting my career I would already hate it. SInce I have started my job 9 nurses, on my floor alone, have quit. We constantly work short staffed and nurses are always calling in. I should also mention I work midnights. I love being a nurse and I am very disappointed at the way i feel. I don't want to leave nursing or the health profession but I don't know what to do. Everyday I go to work I am nervous and constantly feel that my license is in jepordy."

Nurse Abuse:"A western Kentucky doctor has a date in court Monday morning. He was suspended for harassment when a nurse says he hit her. Doctor Bruce MacDougal, a plastic surgeon at Regional Medical Center in Madisonville, allegedly became upset when he couldn't access a piece of equipment for a procedure in the emergency department. A nurse reportedly brought him the equipment, and that's when the nurse says he hit her in the back."

    Nurses In The Media:

      Does Pink "missundaztand" nurses? , Nursingadvocacy.org:"Missundaztood" dresses Pink's young misfit thing in safe rock and hip-hop styles, and the self-declared un-Britney emerges with a fairly engaging album for bubblegum pop graduates. Unfortunately, the record includes a prominent and troubling reference to nurses."
      http://www.nursingadvocacy.org

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

      ER, Nursingadvocay.org:"On behalf of the Center for Nursing Advocacy, I am writing about an issue of vital importance to the future of our nation: the state of the nursing profession. Media products under your influence, particularly the NBC/Warner drama "ER," are harming the profession of 2.7 million American nurses by giving the public an inaccurate and inadequate account of what nurses really do to save and improve lives. Research suggests that "ER" strongly and negatively influences the way children view nursing."
      http://www.nursingadvocacy.org

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

      "Learning The Bones." Nursingadvocay.org" Thoughtful, insightful and objective analysis from the Center staff--thank you. While I can understand why some readers would find the subject or its treatment uncomfortable or disturbing, that is clearly the point. As a piece of writing, as art, the piece works. And I agree that it casts no particular aspersions on nurses as a group."
      http://www.nursingadvocacy.org

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

      NBC's "Passions" solves nursing shortage: monkeys can do the job! Nursingadvocay.org:"Starting in March 2003 and at least as recently as late August, NBC's campy, supernatural daytime soap opera "Passions" has featured an orangutan named Precious in the role of the private duty nurse of one of its characters--a bold step backwards in the already slow...evolution...of the media's treatment of nurses."
      http://www.nursingadvocacy.org/

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

      "Scrubs" Defines Nursing, Nursingadvocacy.org:""Scrubs" defines nursing: it's all about shutting up and following physician "orders." Tonight's episode of NBC's "Scrubs," which purports to teach nurse Carla Espinosa that nursing is all about doing what physicians tell you, is one of the most virulently anti-nurse prime time television episodes the Center has ever seen."
      http://www.nursingadvocacy.org/media/tv/scrubs/scrubs.html

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

      "Will & Grace" Bombshell, Nursingadvocacy.org:"In its November 13 episode, NBC's popular sitcom "Will & Grace" began a wacky but worrisome foray into the world of "student nursing." Though no one takes what the show does at face value, this episode's treatment of nursing was misleading and damaging to the profession."
      http://www.nursingadvocacy.org

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

    Nurses' Overtime, Law Bans Nursingdiscussions.com:"After a five-year battle, New Jersey has a state law barring hospitals and nursing homes from forcing health care employees to work overtime except in emergencies. Who does the law affect? The law covers all New Jersey hourly workers who provide patient care or clinical services, including nurses, nurses' aides, pharmacists, therapists, technicians who do tests and similar workers, but not doctors, who work at hospitals, nursing homes and in home health care. Nurses and union officials said the law, only the second in the nation, should improve patient safety and prevent mistakes that people who have been on the job for up to 16 hours can commit."

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

    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."
    http://www.nursingdiscussions.com/panties

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

Nurses Are Ready To Work, But Want Fair Staffing, Nursingadvocacy.org:"For too long, nurses have been victims of a nursing enculturation process in which we are taught to be silent about what we do, to downplay its impact, to negate its importance. The fact is, nurses have technical expertise and clinical judgments that save lives, on every shift of every day at every hospital--and sometimes even before the patient gets to the hospital."

    Constant Care (Nursing Assistant Chronicles), Code Blog.com:"It had been my first shift back in a near three month sabbatical from the hospital. Work was few and far between in those days, mainly because my seniority was so low. This also meant I got the short end of the stick when it came to shifts, wards and patient care. One of our duties as Nursing Assistant is Constant Care, where we sit (or stand, or run or walk) with a patient and watch everything they do, help them with everything and basically provide direct one on one care."

The two CNAs that I was with put an incontinence pad on the tub, put the female resident on the tub and accompanied me to the shower room. AFter telling me where everything was, they left. Oh, I forgot to mention that this poor old sweet woman has contractures. THey merely left after saying "If you need help, pull the string." I had told them TWICE that I had never done this before.

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....

    What to think about nurses who make up accucheck, Nursingdiscussions.com:"I know of 2 nurses in the facility where I work who change the accucheck numbers to lower numbers just so they wont have to call the doc. We have several residents who if their blood sugar is above 200 the doc has to be called. These nurses hate to talk to our medical director. This is falsifying medical records if I am not mistaken. The DON looks over it. Have any of you ever experienced such a thing in your line of nursing? Its very important that our residents are being monitored closely. I dont think its funny or amusing. These nurses tell me I am being too serious and shouldnt be so picky. I am sorry, but I didnt become a RN to make up things about our residents and not report it to the doc. Any one else with the same problem? or any suggestions?"

This angers me and i would like to start a union for nurses and make sure this doesnt happen to no more good nurse or doctors and the board of nursing will have to pay with a class action law suit and if alot of nurses and doctors have been wrongfully accussed without representation then we will have a good case and a good shot at making a difference i know that nurses jobs are very hard jobs to follow and very hard to quit after you have been doing this job for months and years after education and work experience, lets make a change for a diffence message me and lets get this started"

    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

Where you ever ridiculed for being a nurse and how? 4. Are you happy with your career choice and what other careers have you tried? 5. What are the advantages and disadvantages to being a male nurse? 6. How do male and female patients act differently around you?"

    Where did you graduate from Nursing?:"Hey guys! First time here. Great forum. Can't believe I only found it just recently. Anyway, just wondering where you guys got edu-ma-cated. Me? Biola University in CA. 5 year BSN program (sheesh!) It took me 6 years though because I'm a transfer. Only male in the class with a graduate of 23 people (we started out with 30)."

    Which nursing career path to choose:"I am a bsn senior nursing student who is trying to decide which nursing path to choose. I have completed all but pedi and preceptorship clinicals.I have enjoyed all clinicals..but med-surg not as much. Basically.. I would like to ask for your help. Who really enjoys the nursing career they have? The hours, pay, ability to advance their career, etc. I know each situation is different, I just need somewhere to start. We have a career fair in February and most students get their jobs at that time and before graduation."

    Why not Medical School?, 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."

    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?"

    Working while RN student:"I'm a 32 year old male currently working as a Community Support Worker and will be starting RN school in August. I really enjoy my current job but will need to work while I'm going to school. At the most, I could work Fridays - Monday but am wondering what other peoples experiences have been with working while going to school and what people have found is the most they can work and still stay sane and top of their studies. I prevously completed Mechanical Engineering years ago and did work a couple days a week for one semester but I was much younger then and not as focused. Any advice is great."

Nursing Uniforms:

    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."

Nursing Unions:

Nursing Wages, Nurse Pay, Nursing Salaries:


Nursyz:"Hospitals and all the variety of workplaces nurses may apply for work claim the same thing: their facility or agency is the best out there in terms of compensation, atmosphere, benefits, etc. But as it often turns out, the thrill of getting hired stops at the orientation process. From then on, it becomes apparent there is a big disparity between management claims and the reality on the floor. Everyday, nurses have to contend with unsafe staffing ratios, unfair labor practices, indifferent superiors, to name only a few. It is a matter of survival and possesing the ability to "take it all in" in order to stay on the job."
