quietdarkness, I know this will get you fired up, it did me...

Borrowed and directly quoted from Mihow....

"The Mayor of Randolph, Iowa has offered a 5 dollar bounty for any feral cat that is brought to him alive. An action I find mindblowlingly deplorable. Why not take every five dollar bounty and pay someone to come and do this properly and humanely?

Please join Murray and me and write to the Mayor of Iowa. Let him know that this is a terrible idea.

Mayor: Vance Trively

Even if you are (what CNN so irresponsibly refers to as) a “cat hater” then pretend this is about dogs, hippos, whatever the crap. Members of a community cannot take matters such as this into their own hands. I can’t even imagine what kind of abuse these cats are going to experience, let alone what they could do to the kids looking to make some money."


What a douchebag.

Without further ado, my first doll in over a year. I finally had enough time off to finish her last night. I don't like her hair that much. That was always my worst part about dolling, that and SHOES... but I guess it will come back with time.

Ok so this comment came up in one of the nursing communities I'm in, and it kind of irked me. Actually it more than 'kind of' irked me, it bothered me. A LOT.

I graduated from my hometown college back in 1997 with a Diploma in Nursing. I've been working almost constantly since a year after I graduated, mostly all hospital nursing with a year or two of long term care thrown in there, but in almost every situation I was a charge nurse with more responsibilities than your average bear.

What is the difference in perception between a nurse that has a Diploma or ADN, or a nurse that has her BSN to an 'outside the field' person? Do I, as a Diploma trained nurse, seem or appear less trained to you just because I don't have BSN behind my RN?

When I was going to school, it was well known on the floors when we were going to clinical that the nursing students from my school were better trained, more ready to work, and able to do more than the BScN students that were at our level or even a semester or two above. When it came to hiring, we were hired more often because of our last set of clinicals compared to the university - we had more experience on the floor.

I have heard many times since coming across the border to work that Canadian nurses seem to be better trained than those schooled in the US - and quite frankly, from being witness to several clinical sessions while I was working at the hospital in Great Bend, if my clinicals were as easy as those were when people were 2 weeks from graduating, my graduating class would have been a whole lot bigger!

So - I'm throwing it out to the general public, meaning YOU. What is your opinion of degree nurses versus diploma nurses?

I just had a foot fall asleep. And it took 10 minutes to fully 'wake up'. That was pleasant. Really. It was. *cries*

I bet $25 on last weekend's football... whatever you call it. It wasn't really a pool, it was one of those things where you write your name in a square and if the point totals match up, you win.

Anyways. I spent $15 (3 squares) on the $5/square board, and $20 (2 squares) on the $10/square board. And tonight, the security guard in charge of it all says "Hey, congratulations." I won ALL THREE THINGS! $225 bucks in my hands :)

Nate is going to be told I lost ROFLMAO
