Thu Dec 30 18:23:32 PST 2010 Dec 30 18:23:32 PST 2010

@NurseTeeny @tcoss Another thought is that many RNs are putting off retirement (economy related) #rnchat

Thu Dec 30 18:56:49 PST 2010 Dec 30 18:56:49 PST 2010

T2 Glad you agree. I think we can make the #RNchat community a force to reckon with, in a good way! :) Right?

Thu Dec 30 18:56:57 PST 2010 Dec 30 18:56:57 PST 2010

@EllenRichter good idia Ellen to introduce other nurses to

#RnChat :)

Thu Dec 30 18:57:08 PST 2010 Dec 30 18:57:08 PST 2010

Thu Dec 30 18:57:35 PST 2010 Dec 30 18:57:35 PST 2010

Thu Dec 30 18:57:40 PST 2010 Dec 30 18:57:40 PST 2010

Wow, thats a terrific idea! RT @RNchat T2 And we may have to run demos of #RNchat to some hospitals & other facilities. ;)

Thu Dec 30 18:58:11 PST 2010 Dec 30 18:58:11 PST 2010

We definitely need to use SM to improve nursing . #RNchat

Thu Dec 30 18:58:16 PST 2010 Dec 30 18:58:16 PST 2010

Really great idea, I think this is where it needs to start!RT @EllenRichter: we each need to

#RNchat

bring a new #nurse friend to #RNchat

T2 II think we all see how valuable social media has become, but we on how to blend it with health care #RNchat

still dont have best grip

Thu Dec 30 19:01:38 PST 2010 Dec 30 19:01:38 PST 2010

@nursefriendly Possible explanation: Modern nrsg evolved as a female-dominated profession w/in a male-dominated society. #RNchat

Thu Dec 30 19:02:26 PST 2010 Dec 30 19:02:26 PST 2010

@nursefriendly

Meaning:

women were "put in their place", and the pressure just mounted

internally over time. #RNchat

Thu Dec 30 19:03:32 PST 2010 Dec 30 19:03:32 PST 2010

@EllenRichter T2 Certainly an open and ripe area for nursing research! #rnchat

Thu Dec 30 19:04:01 PST 2010 Dec 30 19:04:01 PST 2010

@rnchat I wonder how things would

have worked out in the nursing profession if it began

differently; perhaps gender roles switched #RNchat

Thu Dec 30 19:04:09 PST 2010 Dec 30 19:04:09 PST 2010

@nursefriendly Also, I think h/care confuses the word Serious & Responsible . http://bit.ly / hed98o #RNchat

Thu Dec 30 19:04:14 PST 2010 Dec 30 19:04:14 PST 2010

@nursefriendly I agree that "eat your young" mentality is seen more in nursing than other professions. I think stress plays big role #RNchat

Thu Dec 30 19:04:21 PST 2010 Dec 30 19:04:21 PST 2010

@Rnchat #Rnchat possibly, also, "These young RNs will never know what I went through" mentality?

Thu Dec 30 19:04:44 PST 2010 Dec 30 19:04:44 PST 2010

@FreshRN now that is a scary thought! #rnchat

#RNchat

no matter how many chairs. I swore Id NEVER

Maybe "Eating the Young " mentality those skills somewhere? #RNchat #RNchat

Thu Dec 30 19:11 :37 PST 2010

stems from management? Maybe we need to train

Thu Dec 30 19:12:12 PST 2010 Dec 30 19:12:12 PST 2010

@RBK1217 Search for the tweets with the #RNchat hashtag thru the week for great links to blogs, articles & conversations too!

Thu Dec 30 19:13:20 PST 2010 Dec 30 19:13:20 PST 2010

@Biebert Actually I really dont think "eating your young" is management-driven. Its just senior nurse vs newbie #RNchat

Thu Dec 30 19:13:21 PST 2010 Dec 30 19:13:21 PST 2010

@EllenRichter #RNchat It was degrading and I think that was the point of making us sit "below" the floor nurses. It felt awful!

Thu Dec 30 19:13:24 PST 2010 Dec 30 19:13:24 PST 2010

Good night everyone! Great chat! #RNchat

Thu Dec 30 19:13:42 PST 2010 Dec 30 19:13:42 PST 2010

Agree RT @sarahbethrn: Also think it has to do with the generation gap. baby boomers dont understand gen Ys, and vice versa. #RNchat

Thu Dec 30 19:13:56 PST 2010 Dec 30 19:13:56 PST 2010

Gender, gen gap, hospital heirarchy and unionism all have things to contribute to the horizontal violence in nursing ! #rnchat

the 200 million lottery or else continue being a nurse

Thu Dec 30 19:15:28 PST 2010 Dec 30 19:15:28 PST 2010

@EllenRichter Leaders in the unit have the power to identify & stop poor treatment. How else would we find new nurses on the floor? #RNchat
