Dear colleagues (new and old),
I have been a nurse (and no I won’t reveal my level of education as I don’t believe that it designates my level of intelligence or commitment to our profession) for over 25 years. THERE IS ROOM FOR ALL OF US.
To my new sisters and brothers in the profession: WELCOME! Our [...]
I started out working in a gentlemans club as the beer tub girl. Basically, I sat there, looked pretty, and popped beer caps for customers walking in the front door.
I worked for about 2 months observing the workings of a strip joint: how the girls approached the men… the hustle they would use to [...]
I am a veteran nurse of 15 years. I work with nurses that eat their OWN.
We have a charge nurse that can’t handle pressure and the way to survive is to divert attention from yourself. I’M NOT LIKE THAT! I don’t “rat” on others, but I have been the object of “ratting out” at times. [...]
I’m not a nurse, but I am looking at the profession. I’ve seen so many posts here about how horrible it is, but I’ve also seen some people that say they enjoy their job. If I was going to be a nurse, I think I’d try to work in a nursing home.

I’m a graphic designer. Part freelance, part contract, and part full time (I kind of do my own thing). I decided to write something about myself, because I stumbled across this site and noticed all that there was said about graphic design is negative things. So here we go:
A lot of the views on the other [...]
I just started working for a very small-flower shop about a week ago, which is extremely fast paced and incredibly stressful. My boss is a complete micromanager, who is very rude to everyone working there, she has no personality, and she is a complete OCD freak. She is very disrespectful and rude to everyone, except [...]more
Lately, I am just glad to have a job. My job is stressful and I am under appreciated if not appreciated at all, along with all my coworkers. There are times I feel as though I would like to quit, but nursing is all I know how to do and I do it well. I [...]more
I am dialysis nurse. What is dialysis? Well it is basically a process that involves hooking your body up to a machine through an artificially created access post so that your blood can flow into a tube and through the dialysis machine where the wastes in your bloodstream are cleaned. (What your kidneys usually do).
