What rules have you broken for patients?:"I had a patient who I knew was going to die. She had a cat that she adored and had found 15 years earlier when he was just a tiny little kitten. I told her husband to go get the cat and we surprised her with it one night. It was nice to see her face light up as she held the cat for about 20 minutes. We also brought a dog in when it wasn't against the rules. The dog left happy and the man died later that night peacefully."

What sets your recruiter or company apart?:"I spent a great deal of time picking out a company to work with. So far my choice seems to be a good one. My recruiter has gone out of his way to make sure my needs are met. I was wondering what criteria different people use in selecting a company. For me it is a recruiter I can work with."

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?"

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?"

What's the story of your pet? Nursingdiscussions.com:"I have a mutt named Maggie. She had been hanging around in a cage in a shelter for 5 months when I came along and said "she's cute, I'll take her". She is the funniest dog I have ever had. Do you have a pet?

What's up with LEVOPHED? Nursingdiscussions.com:"Have you guys noticed an increase in the use of Levophed as a front line medication for hypotension/shock. It used to be the absolute last ditch medication. Remember Lev-o-fed...leave-'em-dead? Did I miss some recently published study?

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."

"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."

Working Short-Staffed - Horror Stories, Nursingdiscussions.com:
http://www.nursingdiscussions.com/horror

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

Working to improove:"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."

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."

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

Workplace Bullying:"Have any of you been bullied by a superior? What happened and how did you handle it? I think that this may go on more than folks even recognize. Ex. To make vague threats of staff losing jobs is bullying. To accuse staff of doing something they did not do is bullying. "
http://www.nursingdiscussions.com/bullying

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

Workplace Violence, Nursingdiscussions.com:"In a unit I work in, a Doctor had attacked a male nurse. The doctor had arrived to the unit angry and "running his mouth" how nobody knows what they are doing. When actuary a family dr. sent a patient by car to the hospital with chest pain. The patient was having a MI. The doctor in this case is a cardiologist who was consulted. Any ways, a nurse walked up to the dr and said, " I guess this ones going to the cath lab. All at once the dr jumped from the chair, grabbed the nurse by the throat choking him. This action was in front of the patient and many visitors."

Worst situation you've encounterd as an ER nurse:"I'd be interested in knowing other stories about the worst encounter other ER nurses have had. Whether it was a critical patient, trauma patient, staff encounter - what made you lose sleep? "

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

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?"
