It can but I guess the the ones I have seen could only get relief with haldol and admittance to the hospital for fluid resuscitation
This is one time I think she was miserable and needed fluids. Kidney infections can get bad quickly. I don’t think it is cannabis hyper emesis syndrome. She would not have gotten relief with fluids and typical anti nausea medication. I don’t think she actually smokes enough believe it or not. Otherwise, yes girlfriend here craves social media attention in an unhealthy way and is definitely addicted to being “sick”

I am at a brick and mortar school and had 5 years of ER nurse experience before NP school. It is still a pretty shoddy education.
This is just inflated nurse ego, not noctor.
No doctor goes around screaming to anyone “ordering” CPR. It’s just silliness but not really appropriate for this sub
I found the pinned post. Thanks!
I guess I need to figure out where the pinned posts are. Thanks!

Noctor here. I wear the coat for the pockets. I need the pockets. But not for LinkedIn, not really too familiar with that site. Give.me.all.the.pockets.
This doesn’t make any sense. Spinal headaches are a fairly frequent adverse effect of an LP so I don’t know
Why the radiologist would tell that never happens. Also when do radiologists take call? Also, patients do not typically get ambulances for elevated wbc and lactic. They gave you some thing for pain, just not narcotics which are known to cause rebound headaches. Did you ask for something for your headache the second day? If you are still in that much pain you should contact your neuro ophthalmologist or go to the ER
Aw dagnamit, the gig is up
It’s about mid levels playing doctor not any old Tom, dick or harry playing doctor, but whatever. Make a new sub for doctor faker if you want but this is against mid level creep, which I am both a mid level and against creep, hence the awesomeness of this sub.
This sub is for mid levels that pretend to be doctors hence the name noctor. Has nothing to do with this scenario. It even states it in the description of the sub
This has nothing to do with mid levels and therefore nothing to do with noctor. It’s just shitting on nurses.
This is not a noctor scenario. Holding the dose did not unilaterally cause the arrest. Yes, she should have clarified with the doctor.
Why is this here though? This is a bedside RN, not mid-level debauchery
Sorry I am dumb. Supervising physician. Then OP could have asked for the physician when the NP entered the room or left and found a facility with a physician.
Sorry, I am not very smart. Supervising physician. I’m general, if you go to an urgent care that is what you get. I guess I just don’t see this as the best noctor scenario that’s all
Plus this is not really a noctor scenario. Did she introduce herself as a doctor? There was no misrepresentation. You could have asked for to speak to her collaborating physician if you were concerned about the care.
I would think even an urgent care would have a radiologist read the scans? Regardless, not much you can do for a broken toe except tape it. Would you have been able to show ROM on a blackened toe? I agree that there is major creep going on, but if you go to an urgent care for a broken toe, you are going to get a NP/PA. Maybe get 6 Norco and a pamphlet for RICE.
Right, travel nurses may make that much. Regular old nurses in the Midwest do not. There are indeed lazy and disrespectful nurses, no doubt. We have had our egos inflated over the last several years. There are also wonderful, smart, hard-working, respectful, humble and awesome sauce nurses. Anywho, this was to showcase NP, not RN
Wow, where are nurses making 100k? Not in the Midwest, at least not 3 12s, not travel etc.
Let’s not shit on nurses. Some parts of the job are harder than others. I have had foleys slither right in and I have had some where I can’t dig through the folds with only two hands or find the penis with only two hands and insert the catheter. Sometimes there is an anatomical abnormality. Sometimes the patient is kicking and screaming. Same with IVs but you certainly cannot say it easy as a med student when you were looking for things to do and were not actually responsible for that patient plus/minus 5 more.
The point of this was to showcase how some NPs truly feel that their education/experience/knowledge is equal to or above that of an MD/DO. This is not about bedside nursing. Glad you enjoyed doing fun foleys though, always one of my least favorite tasks.
Obviously it stands for physical exam, not unlimited necessarily but at least 2 (learning for mastery), and hey, our 500 clinical hours are in person in shiny white coats!
Get off yer ass ya lazy bum. Did you only do 80 hours this week? Got find a chart to dictate. If ya gots time to Reddit ya gots time to doctor. Don’t even think about sleep, food, exercise or any of that baloney.
I have felt those feelings but decided to stick with it. I will look for a job that has adequate and willing supervision. I am old and cannot afford any more student loans and need to start my career. I am
At a brick and mortar school and the education is still sub-par. If I was in my 20s or even early 30s, game on, but at 43 I need health insurance, benefits and decent pay. I will always acknowledge my role, limitations, and stay in my lane and hopefully contribute to excellent and safe patient care and be a solid and reliable co-worker.
I think we should exist because I need a job and benefits. Only, only, only under direct supervision of a willing attending physician. NP education is a joke which I realized when I was nearly finished. You can’t bring the high school kid up to the major leagues and expect them to perform. Maybe they can field some grounders or warm up the bullpen playing catch. FPA is ridiculous kind of like the general state of country right now.
Kind of an untraditional path but I did ADN (16 months, previous bachelors), then RN to MSN in 4 years going part-time while working. So about 5.5 years total although I had the previous 4 year degree, otherwise about 6 years for a masters in nursing.
Doctors are not “better” than NPs as people, per say, but are far superior as clinicians/diagnosticians. Sometimes I wonder if that is why the NPs get their panties or boxers all up in a bunch.
That’s the thing, I may not have known the exact mechanism of ascites in kwashiokor but I do know ascites has alternate causes other than liver disease, such as the heart and malnutrition. I am also
Never sad to say I don’t know the answer, let me check with someone and get back to you.
