    I don't know who the "she" is that you are referring to. The term elder can refer to one or a group of people who are older in age, of course. But it can also be applied to those in some churches...

  11. Case Management Scenario Questions
    I don't work in case management but I do have an interest and the questions do not make sense to me either. For the first question it's possible that, like in other interview situations, they just...

  16. Do Nurses Earn Big Money? You Decide.
    Some NP's make six figures, some don't, and it's less likely for a new NP where, in my area for example, new NP's start off making a couple of dollars an hour less than what I make as an RN with...

  17. An Unapologetic Reasoning On Why You Don't Want To Be A Nurse.
    It's my opinion that some who read allnurses are just stubborn enough to need to prove that they know better, that they can do exactly what nurses with experience are advising against, that somehow...

  18. An Unapologetic Reasoning On Why You Don't Want To Be A Nurse.
    While I agree with you that nursing has many facets and there are many areas to choose from, in reality, it isn't always that easy to change as it may once have been. For example, it took over one...

  21. Indian graduate in Australia wants to come to USA

  25. Malpractice Insurance
