  11. how to land on a first job

  14. Do you work under the fear of being fired due to age?
    I am so glad to be working in a hospital with a union. This would never happen. There has to be a very strong reason to terminate someone. If it is only "seasoned" nurses getting terminated,...

  19. RNs filling in for CNAs when a CNA calls out
    Personally, I don't agree with what your hospital is doing. On our unit, if we are short a CNA, then we staff with an extra nurse. RN's get a lighter assignment and help each other.
