    I paid off about $15,000 in student loan debt after I got an inheritance. It was a big chunk to pay off at once, but I was glad to have that weight off my shoulder.

    It depends on the local market. My local hospital is transitioning to an all-BSN workforce. I graduated with an ASN in an area where hospitals only hire BSNs.

    Unfortunately, cannabis. However, it will not be federally legal until the pharmaceutical companies know how to package, dispense and make money. We are most likely 20 years away from that. It will also require FDA trials. However, look at the data of narcotic addictions in the legal states. Yes, they still have issues but they do not share the same levels of heroin epidemics. I agree that someone with alcohol addiction should NOT be on Dilaudid.
    My state has a heroin crisis *despite* medical marijuana being legal for a decade.

    It doesn't bother me. Weird stuff happens. In the immortal words of Letters to Penthouse, "I wouldn't have believed it if it hadn't happened to me."

    I've seen interviews from the shooters neighbors, from the realtor that sold him one of his houses, heck even from a Starbucks barista who used to sell him coffee. Nobody else seems to be embarrassed to have come across him at some point in time. I see no shame in someone having been his doctor or nurse practitioner, either. Of course, you probably won't see them get interviewed, but that likely is because of HIPPA, not Xanax shame.
    The shooter drank coffee. Should we blame caffeine for the Las Vegas Massacre?

    If he was on antibiotics, would we be blaming them?

    Forgive my ignorance, but do religions that forbid people to help a human being in need actually exist? Is there really scripture text to that effect or is it someone's interpretation? It's just seems wrong to me. Helping someone should be something we could all agree on is a "good deed".
    In parts of New York, Hasidic communities are served by Hatzolah, a volunteer religious EMS service. Until a few years ago, all of the volunteers were men. They were allowed to treat women, but women in the community wanted to be treated by women. An all-female volunteer EMS corps started a few years ago. They focus on obstetric and GYN emergencies.

    First of all, talk to a religious authority. They may be able to offer guidance.

    Have you considered working in home care? Many male clients, especially older ones, prefer male home health aides. You could also try corrections (they hire CNAs where I live), substance abuse rehab (many units are segregated by gender), boys' camps (if you don't mind kids), a group home for people with intellectual disabilities, or a religious facility.

    I'm not sure if you're suggesting that someone has been dismissive of someone's religious beliefs in this thread?

    I was simply wondering if there actually is a religion that forbids men to care for women and women to care for men. It struck me as odd. I don't know of any, but that doesn't mean they don't exist. Hence the request for a clarification.
    Some very conservative branches of Islam (ex. Salafism), Judaism (ex. Ultra Orthodox and Hasidism), and Christianity don't allow unrelated males and females to mix at all. Ultra Orthodox and Hasidic Jewish men have made the news for refusing to sit next to women on planes. Some New York City public pools have been sued for holding single-sex swimming sessions.
