I don't know if anyone else is having this difficulty, but I sure am! So I am burying my pride and admitting that there is a definate language barrier between the nurses up north (Canada) and our neighbours to the south. I think we need to have a dictionary of short forms, e.i. RPN= Registered Practical Nurse. I am not sure what the equivilent is down in the U.S, I have been trying to figure it out. There are a few others I have been stumped on as well. So, anybody wanna help me out??
