I'm Kara, an RN-BSN, with many interests. I love nursing and feel it is a calling. I am very spiritual and that works for me because being a nurse is very hard work. It is often thankless (you're seeing pts at their worst) I have 20 years of experience in ortho, neuro, eent, med-surg@ a large and well known hospital (St. Luke's Medical Center,Milwaukee WI). I then decided that that I wanted to explore leadership positions. Being such a large hospital, St. Lukes had little to offer. I then

I enjoy being a nurse. This is my calling.
As a nurse, I come to work with a big smile, a perky attitude and some naughtiness to give the night shift a spunk!
they say how do I sustain the energy to a very high level?
I'd say because I am a nurse who enjoys being one.

I am new to the forum and would like to get some feedback. I will be graduating this fall from nursing school and am looking to relocate to Katy Texas (by Houston). My question is, does anyone have any suggestions on where the best place for a new grad to work might be? The facilities I have looked at in Katy seem to be surprisingly reluctant to look at hiring new grads. Memorial Hermann told me that they don't hire new grads, which surprised me considering the
I am a new OR nurse with 10 years general nursing experience. I have found the environment in and around the OR I'm working in to be hostile and unhappy. Is this the norm for all ORs?
I have spent a significan number of years in cost containment and I am a strong believer in nursing being more involved. Costs are out of control and nurses could contribute to this subject.
I have lived in Chicago for 30 years. I love the city but I'm so tired of the snow. I keep saying to myself, one day I will move somewhere in the southwest. The reason I am thinking of Vegas is that I have a few friends(not nurses) who have relocated there already and loving it! I have visited them a few times and love the sunny weather.
So, here I am sulking. I appreciate any input. Thanks!
One thing I've tried to work on over the years is a blog. Unfortunately, I've never really been that good at keeping up the appearances of maintaining my blog (still around on Blogger -- http://omae.blogspot.com). I suppose the primary reason for that is that for the last 2 years or so, I've been a nursing student.
Anyone who's ever been a student nurse (which, I'm assuming, is anyone who's reading this) is at least slightly familiar with the boot-camp atmosphere of school. Take,

Hello fellow nurses of the world. I am a travel nurse by trade, and love to travel. I don't know if ever I will slow down and settle into one location. A few years back I was in Texas where I came across difficulties trying to communicate with my patients, especially Spanish speaking ones. So I decided to take classes at the local community college, after a semester, I really did not get anything out of it. Months of trying to practice I came across another nurse who told me to travel, and go abroad.
I am looking at starting a legal nurse consultant does any one have experience doing this tell me about our experience
