  6. New RN; I want to quit my job already.

  7. If you like your health insurance, you can keep it your insurance.  Period

    I see the "cut & paste" of portions of my reply, but I also see a great deal of misinterpretation of what I posted. For example, I cannot find in my post where I stated "the IRS will now run...
