If you want any profession advice this is not the place to go. Please contact the state board of nursing and your school instructor.

For no reason, I was banned. I cannot think of any reason that I would be banned. I loved website until now. I did not argue with anyone, or anything in that manner. bam, I was banned. no explanation, nothing.

This site was my resource as I switched careers after many years working and supporting my family. I was glad to find others in my same situation and want to thank my friends on allnurses for all their help.

My son is currently a nursing student, and has used this site many times in the past 3 years. He raves about it. I also work in the medical field, so I logged on and found it very helpful in so many ways, even though, I myself, am not a nurse. I have had nothing but a very positive experience while navigating through this site. I have also referred this site many times to the nurses that I work with, and have had many great comments on how helpful this site has been to them.

I am a Cardiac Intensive Care Nurse and I have used AllNurses.com through college and I continue using it even today.
Review by Svend Christian7 months ago
I saw this site listed on Google ... I didn't think much of it but I'm glad I clicked. It's exactly what I needed. This is a great resource for students who want a career in NCLEX. You will find EVERYTHING. Rants. Knowledge. Help. Examples. Discussions. Magazine.

Allnurses.com is a wealth of information and has been there when I needed answers to questions by real people/nurses in my trade/field. I use it all the time.

Love this site! It's great to have a place that you can mingle with others in the nursing field. Strongly recommend checking it out.

I'm a nursing student and LOVE the site. There are active nurses that help you along your education. They answer your questions, give you guidance, and even rant about their jobs. Real life RANTS! As somebody that wants to become a nurse this is VALUABLE!!

I didn't find the site to be particularly well-organized. Navigation was cumbersome. It's important to know that if you want to delete your account, you have to go through "administration." You should be able to self-delete. Perhaps new nurses or students may find the site helpful to connect with a community. As an experienced nurse, I did not find much of interest.
Review by Paoli Kempeneer10 months ago
I went to the site and hoped to experience a community of shared experiences. But instead, I was greeted with elitist, self-centered, snobs with closed minds. If you have a concern or a question regarding your experiences in nursing or prenursing, google is your friend, because all nurses will only further make you feel like crap. Please dont contribute to this horrible place. It will ruin you emotionally and deter you from your ambitions. It will also impact your self-esteem even more than when you first came onto the forums when you had a real concern and legitimate questions. Just go to your school's counselors, these bigots are on a fascist level. They will discriminate against your GPA, your experiences with an absolute lack of compassion.
This place is a circle jerk and if you sell your soul and kiss ass here, you will be fine, but if you have an actual question or need support emotionally? Good luck, it's like throwing a bloody limb into a pool of piranhas. They will rip you apart. If you honestly have questions or concerns, make an appointment with an advisor.
I warned you.
You will be called awful, not good enough, suck it up, deal with it,
Review by Tigriss Turkasz1 year ago
I've been a lurker at allnurses.com for years and finally made the jump to being a full member earlier this year. The site is simply amazing. I absolutely love the changes that were made to allnurses.com earlier this year and can say that I've never had an issue with the moderators or site staff.
There ads on the site but, come on, what website in 2019 doesn't have ads?!?
Frequent posters come and go but that is natural given the fact that these are real, working nurses who have jobs and lives. The changing faces on the site keep it fresh and bring new perspectives to the conversations.
As for people getting banned, it happens. People get put in Twitter and Facebook "jail" all the time. Deleting toxic posts on allnurses.com is a good thing because I'd rather have real conversations instead of a couple sour apples ruining an otherwise helpful and informative website.
In short, I'll keep coming back because I love the people and I love the conversations!!!

"funny, but not "funny" had the same experience several months ago after 43 years in nursing, with my dream of going into nursing started twenty years prior to that as i slowly worked myself up the nursing ladder.FIRST BECOMING A LPN, then a LPN MED NURSE. BEFORE GOING TO MY LOCAL COMMUNITY COLLEGE TO OBTAIN MY A.D., THEN WENT RIGHT IN TO TELEY NET PROGRAM FOR BSN. WAS THINKING ABOUT N.P . PROGRAM WHEN INSTEAD OF BEING A GREAT AUNT I WAS NOW A NEW FOSTER MOM WITH A 3 MONTH BABY TO RAISE, HUSBAND WITHOUT A JOB DUE TO HEALTH REASONS. SOMEWHERE IN THERE HAD 2 BIOLIGAL CHILDREN TO HELP RAISE WITH MY HUSBAND.I ALSO CONTINUED TO WORK FULL TIME TO SUPPORT FAMILY. WHEN ALL OF THE SUDDEN I WAS ACCUISED OF CHARTING ASSESSMENT & PAITENTS ARRIVAL TO UNIT BEFORE IT HAPPENED. AS I AM SURE MOST NURSES WOULD FEEL I WAS IN SHOCK FOR 6-7 MONTHS. I BELIEVE THAT NO MATTER WHAT YOU HAVE YOUR HONOR WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS. NEVER IN MY CAREER WOULD I "LIE ABOUT PATIENT OR PT CARE" IMY HAVE FORGOTTEN TO CHART A FEW THING THAT HAPPENEED AS SEVERA;L CRISIS HAPPENED AT ONCE, BUT NEVER ADDING ANYTHING & ESPICALLY KNOWING I WAS SOLE SUPPORT FOR, SPOUSE, FOSTER DAUGHTER(WHO HAS ANOTHER YEAR IN HIGH SCHOOL & A NEW BAB)Y & NEW FOSTER GRANDDAUGHTER (WHO JUST TURNED 16 MONTHS OLD). PLANING TO WORK ANOTHER 3-8 YEARS IN NURSING BEFORE RETIRING. I WAS CALLED TO A MEETING SEVERAL WEEKS AFTER THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO HAPPENED, NO DOCUMENTATION WAS SHOWN. THEN 2 WEEKS LATER I WAS TERMINATED AND ESCORTED TO THE FRONT DOOR LIKE A COMMON CRIMINAL.. AS I SAID SHOCK, THIS COULD NOT BE HAPPENING BUT IT WAS. MY FAMILY HAS BEEN ENCOURAGING ME TO TALK WITH AN ATTORNEY TO PROTECT MYSELF & REPUTATION DUE TO A LIBEL BUT EVERY TIME I THINK ABOUT DOING THIS, I GET PHYSICALLY SICK..SO AT 62 I HAVE DECIDED NOT TO RETURN TO THE NURSING PROFESSION OVER THE MANY YEARS I HAVE BEEN IN NURSING WALKING THE LONG CONCREAT FLOORS, -DAY & NIGHT.THAT I WOULD RETIRE EARLY & CHECK OUT DISABILITY. HAVE HAD TO HAVE BOTH KNEES REPALCE & MY LOW BACK IS SHOT. ALTHOUGH THIS BEING ON MY RECORD DOES LEAVE A BAD TASTE IN MY MOUTH & GUT. AT THIS TIME WAITING ON BOARD OF NURSINGS RESPONSE BEFORE GOING FURTHER TO RESTORE MY "GOOD NAME " & REPUTATION. GOOD LUCK TO YOU AT LEAST THIS HAPPENED AT THE END OF MY CAREER, BUT IT HURTS NO LESS!!

I', sickened to think that this site for nurses was founded by a psychopath who took his whole family on vacation and them murdered them one by one, before killing himself,
Planned the whole thing and bought the gun ahead of time.
This site has also never supported nurses. It will ban you for leaving a link for nurses who need help with addiction so they can get help from other nurses. Nurseboards.com is a much better option than this crazy site. Nurseboards allows you to actually create your own groups, make them private and even hidden from Google indexing. There is a group for every specialty. A much better option than this madness. IMO
Review by DoggieMommie Montoyas1 year ago
The website was founded by a guy who butchered his whole family. Kids and all.
The current administration seems just as whacko.
They allow bigoted, racist, homophobic posts to stay up and instead delete/ban those who take offense to such horrible posts.
Review by ElBechoLoco Clauna2 years ago
i wrote a post about my nurses behavior. calling them stupid and the some nurses of this community took it as an attack on nurses everywhere
i also said on the forum i get my co-workers to wake me up if i fall asleep after closing my eyes on the nightshift and i got treated as a terrible nurse aide
nothing but hatred on this forum do not join you will regret it
Review by GamerOnline2 years ago
Unlike the reviews here, I don't have any problems with the moderators of the site. From what I've seen they get rid of the trouble makers. Basically, it's a positive place and they try to keep it that way.
If you are a new-comer, read the TOS. If you break it you will be warned. Repeated abuse will get you banned. I believe that applies to all discussion sites. It's the first thing I read and it was standard stuff with specifics on what you can or cannot do.
Now, let's get straight into a review of the site...
It's monetized with ads - but so is a lot of other sites.
The mobile version is a bit slower than others.
Their search is basically powered by Google but for me it's not that robust. For some reason, I have a hard time finding anything new or specific.
It's a large site. I had a hard time finding where to post but eventually I learned. I did noticed that they will move your post to the "best place".
It's great talking to familiar 'professionals'. People who are going through the same thing you are at work.
Overall, I like it. I keep going back.
Review by Bafford Kemmish3 years ago
Simply put. You have to sugar coat nursing and all the nasties that come with it. The people on here are the bullies and crybabies that grew up. It does not matter if your post is within community guidelines. Your post will be deleted if a mod doesn't like it. You will be banned if they don't like your post. You have to conform to group think on this website. You cannot discuss issues between nurses. You cannot share your own opinions and experiences. You are not allowed to comment on common nursing issues such as bullying-they will delete it. Self proclaimed Nurse Veterans will pick apart at everything you write. Heaven forbid, you disagree with an RN, BSN or MSN and you are an LPN. Even if you are a CNA, they will rip you apart if you're too opinionated. They chant their credentials over and over. They act as if they are some sort of God that you should praise. They totally need a reality check.
Not to mention the entire website is an ad for online colleges. This is not a place for opinions. This is were you kiss butt and get praised for it.
Whats the point if this website anyway? It is a bunch of miserable nurses getting off on being byches.
Review by Mrs Dawe3 years ago
Site should have been labeled Anal Nurses.
If you are banned, there are 'hacks' in the program that will alert the Powers That Be if you try to register again. BUT.....why are some of the Admins allowed 2nd accounts? Siri? Aka winkibach.
And why is Thunderwolf now posting under his real name? Why hasn't he been on in so long? The story he gave doesn't ring true.
Review by QAnne4 years ago
When the owner/originator of AN.com committed suicide & murdered his immediate family, something changed on AN.com. Long-term members, one-by-one, are disappearing under extreme moderation. It's very sad, but shocking as well. Not sure how/if this website will thrive now.
Review by Glendean4 years ago
If they do not like your post... they will delete it.
You cannot honestly state your true opinion. If the moderators do not agree with your post... expect that it will be deleted out of their website.
