You expect a nurse to have integrity and use good clinical judgement, but not every one does. It’s even possible that not everyone can. Judgement is subjective, and even though the it is the goal for any prudent nurse to give the same level of care as another, it just doesn’t always happen that way.
There are many differences between working as a nurse on the floor and working as a nurse in an administrative role. However, a nurse should never forget “where we came from” and should utilize the caring and thought process applied in hands on patient care in whatever role they have chosen.
Last May, I took a trip abroad to Nairobi, Kenya, with fellow classmates for one of Chamberlain College of Nursing’s international nursing service projects. The two-week trip is designed to immerse nursing students in an impoverished community outside of the U.S. to provide healthcare to people in need. As a Bachelor of Science in Nursing student at Chamberlain’s St. Louis campus, the project also fulfills my multiculturalism and community health course requirements.
High Technology scrubs are great for nerdy doctors and nurses who understand the importance of infection control in their offices, hospitals, nursing homes and clinics. They understand that these medical uniforms will protect them, their loved ones and their patients as well as save their hospital money from costly infections and lawsuits.

the doc was up front and honest when he said he was just not a good nurse. “I was a nurse for a few year and I was so bad at it. I was just not very nurturing. Being a nurse is harder for men. It’s difficult to overcome some parts of our nature. So I decided I had to do something else.”
It’s not uncommon to hear nurses making jokes or talking about completely unrelated topics during a code. It’s a coping mechanism. It’s not that they do not respect the patient or the crisis, but if we actually stopped to think about the fact that a life is in our hands, then we would not be nearly as efficient at our roles.
Summer colds are a total bummer; and so is not having a good remedy for it.Being a nerdy nurse and all, I am often asked to pass along valuable information. Sometimes it’s information that is just not very valuable. Other times the information has value, but I can’t bring myself to write anything about it worth reading. And honestly the 2 keep coming back here have me over a barrel, and I want to entertain you if at all possible… or at least avoid boring you …
