I've thought about the "What are your weaknesses" question a lot.
My weakness is I can't stand people who don't vaccinate their children, with their ignorance they are literally hurting society (herd immunity) and therefore hurting me or my future children.
But I realize that is their freedom, and just because I don't respect you or your decisions doesn't mean I won't treat you with respect. I'll give you (and your children) the same care that I would give any other patient. But I won't be happy about it. :/
I'll have to figure out a way to portray that in an interview. I think it is a valid answer though, at some point we'll all have to treat child molesters, murderers, drug users, or simply just rude people - our level of care cannot change when if we don't like someone. Luckily we don't have to be their friend we just have to help them get well.
Yes, per semester. A recent study showed that the system can't pay a reasonable rate to adjuncts. Read it here Study says too costly to pay adjuncts more.
Being an adjunct is a great way to get experience, but not to make a living. Another study showed that it takes 4-40 hours to produce 1 hour of effective education. If you can find a class and teach it forever, that will be worthwhile. But taking new classes will kill you in prep time.
It definitely sounds like you did the right thing. Gossiping about something that happened is the wrong thing.
Can you get deployed? This will qualify you for the GI bill. I don't know anything about ROCT but is that a possibility? You should be able to commission after you get your degree. I would just finish school without any obligation and use your paycheck to pay off school loans. Good luck.
All active duty airmen compete for promotion. Are you familiar with the "rack and stack"? As is all human endeavors, different units have different cultures. So yes, that may occur.
I'm in the Guard where I don't see any of that. I've promoted to Maj. as fast as it can be done. Neither I nor my coworkers throw anyone under any buses.
Health care is provided to all, in the form of hospitals, that in the US (due to EMTALA) can never refuse a patient. This means, at no cost to you, an entire health care system is ready and waiting anytime you want it. You don't pay for this, and if you can't pay, you still get the service. If you are in my county, you expect police, fire, and medical services if you have an emergency. I believe your argument is completely false. Healthcare is paid for by the people who pay. There are people who don't pay, and these costs are shifted to payers in the form of higher costs. This cost shifting essentially means that society, (or everyone) is paying for the care. If you told me that you have no health insurance, and you wouldn't come to trauma center if you got shot, I declare BS. It is interesting that that left leaning socialist organization, the United Nations, declare health care a basic human right. Universal Declaration of Human Rights | United Nations. Would you also tell me that an indigent child should die for lack of health care? I think not.
I disagree, the police officer needs to be fired, not reeducated. He should also have charges filed against him.
It's only too late if you think so. If you are done growing, then yes. I was over 40 when I became a nurse, joined the military, learned to snowboard and mountain bike. Try to keep up junior...
