New post: Pot Smoking is legal now in California. Does that mean nurses can smoke it too? - https://www.nurseboards.com/groups/psychiatric-nursing/forum/topic/pot-smoking-is-legal-now-in-california-does-that-mean-nurses-can-smoke-it-too/?Nurseboards.com Hello all,

I don't smoke pot, but as most of us can say, I did in college, way before I became a nurse. I have noticed a couple of shops opening up near me in the last couple of days and they sell all different kinds of pot. It's very alluring to say the least. I wouldn't mind smoking the odd...

New post: What's up with 8 hour shifts instead of 12 hour shifts in Phych Nursing? - http://www.nurseboards.com/groups/psychiatric-nursing/forum/topic/whats-up-with-8-hour-shifts-instead-of-12-hour-shifts-in-phych-nursing/?Nurseboards.com Hi,

I'm a psych nurse and I'm looking for a position in another facility. I have gotten a bit tired of the same old thing and need a change. I want to work 12 hour shifts, because I like the idea of having more days off a week and my philosophy is that once you're at work you may as well carry...

Happy New Year. I'm 48 years old and have been a nurse for 20 years. There was a time when I loved nursing. I've worked in med-surg, ED and ICU and all were challenging, but I had a love for my patients and felt I was making a difference.

Lately though, I'm feeling very cynical about...

New post: Thoughts on ED VS Homecare? - http://www.nurseboards.com/groups/emergency-nursing/forum/topic/thoughts-on-ed-vs-homecare/?Nurseboards.com Hi all, spent 20 years in ED nursing left for 3 yrs to do homecare and considering going back to ED. Home care, though great, can be a little disconcerting; the neighborhoods, random acts of violence. Not to mention a boss that second guesses everything I did, would have done things differently,...

New post: Where are you supposed to draw the line? - http://www.nurseboards.com/groups/general-nursing-discussions/forum/topic/where-are-you-supposed-to-draw-the-line/?Nurseboards.com Hello everyone,

I'm a PICC nurse and I travel regionally to different facilities, (mostly nursing homes) to place PICCs on patients who need them. So they don't have to go to the hospital to get them.

Anyway, yesterday I had two really difficult cases with obese patients who were diabetics and ...

New post: Why are new nurses so rude? - http://www.nurseboards.com/groups/general-nursing-discussions/forum/topic/why-are-new-nurses-so-rude/?Nurseboards.com Hello everyone,

I want to ask this question, even though it may upset a few of you. But I've been a nurse for over 20 years and I work in a very busy ICU. We have had an influx of nursing students lately and I'm wondering what is going on with them. I know nursing school is stressful, but to me...

Hello,

I'm a nurse and I work in a nursing home. I've been here for over ten years and been a nurse for 15. I used to love working here, but lately, I've become tired of working there because there seems to be an influx of patients who treat their family members like dirt and I just...
