Advice - added: 2009-02-24 13:28:16

I hope that this will start an interesting discourse.... My girlfriend is a nurse and one of the things that always seems to come between us is her job. It is not that I do not support her career, I am proud of her and how hard she works, and I remind her of this all the time. It takes a special per »

Relatives - added: 2008-06-01 15:11:45

Hi all, Just come in after a busy late shift and had to share. A relative rang to ask about her sons condition. I was of course very polite and tried to put her at her ease.

Love nursing - added: 2007-09-04 00:00:00

I have been a nurse for 30 years. I believe we need to encourage kind and caring people to join the profession. The shortage is just 4 yrs away when a bunch will retire.

Are You Happy Being a Nurse? - added: 2007-08-18 00:00:00

A question for all of you...Are you happy in your present employment as a nurse? Is there something else you have always wanted to do? or something else you'd like to try as a career? What do you find so difficult (if anything) about nursing? »

Why not? - added: 2007-08-16 00:00:00

To quote JFK, why not? The observation that many nurses are not great at taking care of themselves isn't lost on this one. However, I smoked for years AND did manage to quit the year I graduated (over 13 years ago). Yes, I too graduated as a "mature" student. After several more years of NOT taking v »
