    Do any nurses out there have dogs?

    This is Mimi, beagle/spaniel cross Jet, border collie/labrador cross These girls are my life and the RSPCA only actually says that they shouldnt be left ALONE for long periods of time. My girls have each other, therefor not alone and quite happy. If a dog was unhappy you would be able to tell through their behaviour and destruction. Im pretty sure that all my girls do is sleep when im out.

  6. The way that i view it is that the longer you are in a job the better the benefits. I started work at a warehouse 6 weeks before i became pregnant and i missed out on getting more/higher paid maternity leave because i hadnt been at work long enough before i got pregnant. We, as a family, are thinking about baby number two. I am in my second year of training at the moment so its a no no at the moment and i want at least a year in the job before i even think about getting pregnant.
  7. Im not stupid so im not confusing 'judging' with denying treatment I dont and never have 'pawned off patients with pamplets'- i sit and discuss this with them person to person (not student nurse to patient) I have even been with a couple of patients to the smoking cessation because they had no one to go with them or because they were being judged by their families- i support their decisions and choices and if they choose to smoke 50 a day or eat 4 bigmacs for lunch then that is their choice. i will not judge someone, its not my place to. I am curious though as to how many people on here have done something that society frowns on- ie underage sex,underage drinking,breaking the law,unprotected sex,etc- as i said before, people need to take a long honest look at themselves before they judge someone else after all im sure that you have something that someone else could judge you on. I take myself as an example, i had my daughter at a young age out of marriage so people could and possibly do judge me for it and i dont like it so i refuse to judge someone else.
  8. I do my job, i dont judge-If they ask me for help then i will contact the smoking cessation service/the AA/drugs rehab/counselling because that is my job-I am not here to judge I actually pity some of your patients if they have to deal with some of you as nurses, you make me feel sick in fact and to think im trying to become a nurse because i thought (stupidly) that nurses were kind and empathetic to all. Perhaps you should take a look in the mirror before judging those who need your help, you arent perfect, none of us are so stop judging others
  9. Well i would like to be pointed to the discussion of nurses smoking or drinking- oh how funny i cant seem to see one The more i read on this thread the more i dislike this forum-what ever happened to nurses being compassionate? non judgemental? and for the record yes i am 'fat' 'big' 'large' 'obese' what ever title you wanna give me. I do my job well, my patients like me. So those of you who are 'bashing' fat nurses, tell me something-do you eat your 5 pieces of fruit/veg every single solitary day? Do you intake the recomended daily intake for salt/water/vits/minerals? I doubt anyone here is perfect there for let those that have no sins cast the first stone

    Are YOU a closet Pen Addict?

    Im kinda addicted to my pens, yes i collect them, i have buckets full of them. I nearly always have multiple pens in my pocket, some in my bag, a couple in my locker and a pen in my hair :yeah: Yes im a little bit nuts When the ward changed suppliers of feeds i did a funky dance and got some groovy light up pens that change colour as your write-That made my day and charting is so much more entertaining with a cool colour change pen
