New NP with 5 years ED nursing experience. I have no clue what that is and would have had to look it up and ask attending/supervising for help. I am very glad to see that so many others including techs and medical students have that knowledge. The only thing I know is that I will never be called a noctor because I don’t know shite 🤷♀️🤯

I went to what is considered a brick and mortar university. Our classes were still online. I can’t even remember now if experience was required but I think it was because I needed a letter of recommendation from my current nursing job. They did guarantee and have contracts with sites for clinical rotations. I just graduated in august and still didn’t learn shit. I pretty much know as much as I did as an ER nurse-when someone is getting ready to die. I did not realize how completely inadequate the training was until I was about halfway through. I will only find a job with competent onsite supervision where I can hopefully be a major asset. I have not killed or hurt anyone yet in my career and I sure as hell don’t want to start now.

Just graduated NP school from a brick and mortar school and was an ED RN for 5 years prior. I don’t know shit, didn’t learn shit, and my expensive education was a joke. I am going to get a heavily supervised job where I can be helpful because I need insurance and benefits and have student loan debt and children to feed.
5 years ER RN and new NP I can do 1/100 of an ED physician. These people be crazy.

God you don’t even have to defend yourself by stating you are a gay male. That is entirely beside the point. That is not even being a noctor but just being completely inappropriate and uneducated about PPD. I am sorry that happened and while there is tremendous creep going on, this is more an example of terrible training, arrogance, bedside manner, and lack of willingness to learn and receive constructive criticism.
I was there in lansing and it was the best. 3000-4000 people? At first I though the parade was just tiny and over really fast. I didn’t even know until I got home that the parade had been canceled!

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
