    I giggled at this picturing scrambled eggs with Scrabble tiles. Doing a bit better today. Still have moments of breaking down, especially as we were making arrangements today. Don’t be afraid to talk to your family about your last wishes- trying to guess at what one wants after the fact isn’t easy.

    It’s afternoon here. I know I haven’t been on blue for a while. My mom’s health took a nasty turn last month, and it was like one domino fell after another. First, admitted 9/3 with sepsis. Finally made it to rehab 10 days later but then got sent back to the hospital shortly after with more complications. She just passed here at home around an hour ago. So yeah, it’s a craptastic ending to an emotionally draining month plus.

    As a first generation American..

    Being a private organization, absolutely! The first amendment only guarantees the government won't interfere. Private? Good to go. Heck, AN is even an example of that.

    Government Shutdown

    Indeed. The fact that those bearing the brunt of this aren't the ones unable to reach an agreement (mostly thinking of one name here) but the everyday citizens speaks volumes. It shouldn't be the working class suffering from lack of paychecks, which is going to have so many ripple effects. I will say that seeing the articles of restaurants offering free meals, places offering free pet food, and so on, is definitely heartening in that we still care about our fellow countrymen (and countrypets) but it shouldn't be necessary.

    lottery pool

    The admin office of my department is lottery pool headquarters. Pretty sure the rest of the staff could get away with it if they wanted to.

    You will need to see your health care provider. Per the TOS, we cannot provide medical advice.

    Winning...the economy under Trump

    Offering again- anyone need instructions for the ignore feature? Honestly, there are times where it is necessary. I've used it temporarily before. Gave me time to cool off and come back with a level head.

    Winning...the economy under Trump

    Anyone need directions for how to use the ignore feature? I highly recommend it in some cases...

    Do You Think Society Is Degenerating?

    My thoughts: Every generation has complained about the one(s) after them. What you consider a better world is not the same as everyone else's better world. People hiding who they truly are and who they truly love? No thank you. Probably would have been better to keep that one to yourself. What you consider "proper moral values" is not the same for everyone. As long as it's legal, it's not up to you to dictate what constitutes "proper moral values". Your values end with you.
  11. An article on AN does not mean a peer reviewed article. It is simply a format that is different than a standard post.

    AN Members we miss.

    On the iPhone, pressing and holding the refresh icon will give the option to request the desktop site. Don't know if Android has a similar option.

    I think coworker is in witness protection program

    This is where visiting the site on a computer is amazing- I go mark all those student forums read before hitting what's new and most of the time I don't see any of those threads.

    Spouses with same career

    Going to depend on the policy of the facility. Mine does allow relatives to work on the same unit; however, one of them cannot be in a supervisory position or the other would need to be in a new department. I work with several couples: CRNA/surgeon, surgeon/surgical technologist (which is the correct terminology, by the way), anesthesiologist/CRNA, and one nurse and one surg tech who are married to vendor reps who are routinely in the OR. We also have a mother CRNA/son RN and 2 sisters.

    Dental hygiene fall 2018 southwestern college

    I would hazard a guess you aren't going to get much response here as this site is geared to nursing and nursing students. Perhaps seeking out a board for dental hygienists would be a better option.

    Why is everyone's username not their real name?

    If you find them, send some my way Farts can get marriage licenses now?

    Go Fund me = White cargo van (No more homelessness)

    You would be surprised by the number of those making a supposedly good salary who are barely scraping by and living paycheck to paycheck. You know NOTHING about their situations. I have donated exactly once on a GoFundMe. It was for funeral expenses for a coworker who died very unexpectedly. I would in no way donate to some random person on the internet. Your scheme makes no sense to me. You currently have a place to live now; why are you not staying there and delaying nursing school? Save up money and make it on your own two feet.

    Why is everyone's username not their real name?

    Well, I do go by your majesty in areas outside of AN, so I guess mine is too!

    ER or Hospital, which is more fun?

    ERs are typically part of a "regular hospital". And "regular hospitals" are made up of many different types of units. You will never get a one size fits all answer as it's extremely dependent on what each individual's preferences are.

    The Eagle(s) Have Landed!

    When the cops are out slathering Crisco on the streetlights and telephone poles, it's bad

    The Eagle(s) Have Landed!

    Yeah. Congrats to them. Meanwhile, their fans need to be better behaved. Could have lived without the screaming, pots and pans beating, fireworks, and my most favorite, gunshots.

    Can you have cats as a nurse?

    Fixed that for you -mom of 4 meowers and 1 woofer who also works as a nurse (at one point even including an unexpected 24+ hours shift)

    Need advice on helping husband with mild schizophrenia

    What does his mental health care provider state? We cannot provide medical advice, but perhaps he should see his healthcare provider and/or seek a second opinion. And perhaps you yourself would benefit from meeting with a therapist to help you cope.
