    No, the mobile app is completely independent of our system here.

    You will need to use our Mobile Web version. With the Mobile Web version the membership perks work similar to desktop.

    All old memberships are canceled. Perks will continue until expiration. Membership will not renew on expiration.

    To be honest with you, we only have a handful of people using the app. We may get rid of it in the next few months and focus just on Mobile Web and Desktop versions only.

    Nurses never ever get a chance to be pampered. We devote much of our lives to others as we literally shed blood, sweat, and tears. Our minds and bodies are exhausted in the process. The first week in May is devoted to all Nurses everywhere. What do you have planned for your special week? Let the pampering begin.

    One of the reasons I stopped paying for premium membership was that while it was supposed to be an ad-free experience, it was not. And what exactly is "Ad-light."? You still get ads but only the ones the forum ownership deems most important? Or most profitable?
    You will only see 1-2 Google Adsense ads max per page.

    Yes, it should be ok to use a different email address. Let us know when transaction is complete so we can check.

    Nurses do it ... They meet someone for the first time, shake their hand, and have to bite their tongue to keep from blurting out, "You have great veins". Most of our patient's veins go into hiding and we practically have to be an expert sharp (no pun intended) shooter to get in an IV. Are you an expert starting IVs? What do you do to find that elusive vein?

    Yes, it's a sacrifice, working weekends. Nurses miss out on so much family time and especially ME time. When we do get a weekend off, we try and do as much as we possibly can from paying bills on time, buying groceries for the week, taking the kids to the park, hike, or just sleep. So, how do you do it? How do you balance a "normal" life without every weekend off?

    I agree with all of the above.

    In addition...

    Take ownership of what you create. It's YOU. You are the BRAND.

    Anonymous is NOT the way to go if you want to build a business. Yes, you can make money from blogging.

    Always stay positive - be professional in your writing. Never put anyone down. Never talk about specific individuals/entities.

    The goal is to inform - to educate.

    Nurses must have a broad knowledge of how to handle unfamiliar situations. Learning to adapt is something we do every single day. Therefore, the learning process is continuous and ever changing. So, when someone asks a Nurse, "Did you learn anything this week?", just be prepared for a never-ending soliloquy.

    (a non-nurse speaking)

    I think you are reading too much into their "attitude".

    What I've learned over the years is that people are passionate; especially, when they love what they do.

    Yes, you will talk down about those who make YOU look bad ... who make you work harder ... who makes your profession look bad ... even worse, assumes your job is not hard ... etc. But that doesn't mean you do not respect other professions / people.

    Being around a lot of different professions, the best thing you can do for yourself is to let it all out. Just do it quietly (amongst friends). It's good for your soul. It's good for your psychology. You are a happier person if you do.

    Now, there are those who just love complaining, talking about people, etc. These people are not happy. It has nothing to do with the profession but the person.
