About the circus and its performers:

RNonymous…a place for nurses and other health care providers with VALID resentments (and who is to say what is and isn’t valid…so you guessed it…it’s for all observations, critiques, suggestions, crazy, ridiculous and so on…) who need a place to
1. be heard
2. hear others
3. be silent and just “listen”
4. comment or flat out discount/argue/prove/disprove mine or others’ words
5. HEAL…
We humbly approach this endeavor with the full knowledge and acceptance that we embark on a trail yet to be blazed…by us. We the readers, we the wounded, we the carers.
We are here to challenge one another, with the ultimate goal to heal ourselves, one another, and ultimately…
CHANGE the way things are done…
done to us…
done by us…
and…sadly
done in the name of being FOR us.
There have been egregious abuses against health care providers who have entered “diversion” or “peer assistance” programs.
Having been promised the solace of understanding, assistance, and in time, return to safe practice, we have instead faced ridicule, derision, lack of compassion, and return to practice that is no safer than before…
In essence, this site is also for our patients…who are at continued risk from providers who have been “absolved,” given anonymity, and then released unhealed from these “consumer protection” agencies all across the US.
Still Crazy…Still Ungrateful…and yet unhealed…what did you expect? A recovering RN blogs about government hypocrasy and misdirected, ineffective (and thus HARMFUL) “consumer protection programs” designed to HELP both the carers and their patients who are at risk…

Whether you think you belong,

know you belong,

are certain you don’t belong here…

YOU DO. Patients, Board of Nursing officials, future patients, nurses on the edge, nurses who have come through…and still approach one edge or another…YOU DO BELONG on RNonymous.
Sincerely,

SyckRN
