Default Why I Lurk

I don't post because I feel like an intruder. I ended up a not-nurse (I am a clinical social worker) but sixty years ago I was a student nurse at a major Midwestern teaching hospital---I was halfway through school when I left to get married. I can see that nursing and nursing education have changed beyond anything we could have imagined, so I was curious to learn more. Back in the day, we were all unmarried women. We wore starched white aprons and caps. We lived in a total-immersion nursing culture on the hospital campus. And we were the workhorses of the hospital---we put in a 40-hour week on floors, in ORs, in nurseries, etc---nursing education then was VERY hands-on. Somehow we did this while juggling coursework. In recent years I've been around hospitals a lot as my husband was sick a long time before he died, and I seemed never to see the kind of student presence that defined our life. I wondered how students turn into the extremely competent RNs that I have seen, especially on ICUs and CCUs. I feel intimidated by all the high tech equipment and can't imagine how you folks master it---I could not function five minutes on a floor nowadays. On the other hand, bedside nursing care seems to be terminally ill, if not dead, and I wonder how students feel about that.

I am working on the Hepatitis A outbreak from Costco berries...It seems that Hepatitis is not the easy to diagnose. What are the signs you all look for in considering a person may be Hepatitis A positive?

I to am new to forums but agree with people who are a little apprehensive about making comments. It is easy to offend someone from a different culture without realising it. I have worked in four countries in senior positions and having to be ultra sensitive to others and learn about their cultures. I have had people using their cultures to have power over collegues, but the older I get the more bolder I have become.

I am one of those who visit but don't post. I am new to this. I have worked in the UK Australia and New Zealand. I to have found it difficult to understand my collegues whose first language is not English, and when I have had to ask them to repeat some have made me feel really bad. It has made me aware of how different culture understand what I am saying and have learn to be more precise and speak clearer.

Hi everyone,

I'm actually new here and I just wanted to promote or share a link that I think would be very beneficial for all nurses, why is that so? Personally I went through a phase where in I was questioning myself if I really had that "nurse" thing in me. Turns out I was just too stressed out in my current work environment so I decided to take a 2-week vacation to just relax and take the time out and eventually after going back to the hospital, I realized that all along I had that passion. I really love taking care of people and it gives me satisfaction each time I see a patient recover.

Going back to my main concern, I came across this link while I was on vacation and it totally inspired me and made me realize that I had this "calling" to be a nurse. I hope you can take some time to go this site and I guarantee that you will definitely learn something from it.

Enjoy and Best of Luck!

Possible signs and symptoms of hepatitis A include jaundice, fatigue, Feeling very tired,Yellowing of the skin or eyes (also called jaundice)
Not feeling very hungry,Stomach pain,Dark urine,Nausea,Diarrhea
Low-grade fever. However, not everyone who has hepatitis A will have symptoms. The likelihood appears to be related to a person's age (for example, most children under 6years, who become infected do not have symptoms). If symptoms are present, they usually appear suddenly.
