What kind of nurse are you?

I graduated nursing school almost two years ago and got a job doing inpatient acute care nursing on a telemetry floor. I basically have that down now and I'm clear I don't want to be this kind of nurse forever. Part of the appeal of nursing is there are, supposedly, a million different kinds of jobs nurses can do. So what are they and how do I get into those jobs? [more inside]

Switching to 12-hour night shifts: what am I missing?

I'm a new nurse, just getting used to working second shift, now I'm switching to overnight 12-hour shifts. I haven't fully adjusted to the second shift way of life after two months of it, so I'm rather concerned with how this is going to go. I know intellectually the importance of sleep, proper meals, socialization, finances.... What am I missing? [more inside]

Career in public health?

I'm currently a registered nurse in New Zealand. I'm about to start post-graduate study here in NZ with an eye towards a masters degree. I assumed I'd be working toward a masters in nursing (for obvious reasons) but I've always been quite keen on public health and I'm thinking of working towards an MPH. I have a school and course of study in mind already (my interests are cardiovascular health, population health, informatics, and epidemiology). Also thrown into the mix, I'm a citizen of the United States, but I completed all my university schooling in New Zealand. I might like to potentially move back to the States one day. What, if any, are my job prospects like in this instance? Any advice from current MPH students or graduates?

Is there any such thing as a "Doctor Nurse"?

For most of the past two weeks my son has been in the hospital, at two different local hospitals actually, for pancreatic stones. My son is autistic, which complicates the diagnostic process. We had to be sent from the hospital we liked to a different hospital across town, because they were the only place locally that could perform the ERCP he needed. At the second hospital I took an immediate and visceral dislike to one of his care providers, and it was explicitly because she came into the room and introduced herself as "Doctor (whatever)", and then handed me her business card which presented her as "Dr. (whatever), ARNP". In other words, she is a nurse practitioner who came into the room and introduced herself as a medical doctor. She also spoke to me like I was ten years old, which did not endear me to her either. But in any case, my question is: Is there any such thing as a "Doctor Nurse"? I understand what a Nurse Practitioner is, my primary care provider is actually a Nurse Practitioner and I absolutely trust and respect her knowledge and experience. But this woman, I feel like she lied to us with the very first word coming out of her mouth, and I don't understand how she can get away with introducing herself as a doctor in a medical facility without actually being a Doctor of Medicine. Am I missing something? [more inside]

Hospice workers and disclosure

My mom has been in hospice care for pancreatic cancer for a few months now. It's obviously at a pretty late stage at this point. Whenever either she or I talk to the hospice care nurse, the nurse really doesn't want to talk about anything in the future, though, except in the vaguest of terms. [more inside]

Brain, I know it's early, but you gotta wake up!

I'm a nurse who has trouble at the start of my shifts because my brain doesn't get up and running until I've been there for at least an hour -- but the work really requires me to be at 100% from the first minute. There are plenty of questions about how to wake up your body in the morning. How do I wake up my brain? [more inside]

Need to find someone in NYC to help look after my Parkinsons-having dad.

I'll try to stick to specifically relevant snowflake stuff here. So, my father is 78 and has Parkinson's, which is compounded by long-standing blood pressure issues that leaves him prone to falling unexpectedly (moreso than a typical Parkinsons patient). He lives in a big loft in the East Village (NYC) that he's lived in for forty years, and has no designs on leaving. [more inside]

Tattoo to reward a long, hard, but worth every minute, journey!

Ideas for evidence of my success as new ink! I just successfully completed another huge milestone in my nursing career. This road has been very long and stressful, to date the hardest thing I've ever done. It is also by far the one thing that I cannot get enough of. I love what I do, I love being a nurse and I love learning. I have several tattoos already, but this one is more of a reward and a reminder of my love for nursing and the hard work it took to get here. [more inside]

What the hell happened to the health care system

I don't understand why health care suddenly costs so damn much. I can understand a few factors - nurses' pay has gone up, new treatments are more expensive (and doctors prescribe more expensive treatments - sometimes unnecissarily) but these factors don't seem to explain how insanely costly health care has become. And where is all that money going? Again, I understand that CEO pay has skyrocketed in the last 20 years, but is that enough to explain the enormous cost of health care these days? [more inside]
