  4. NYC Nurse Loses Control Of SUV Driving Home After Shift
    Not sure what her profession has to do with anything. Lots of people have to work third shift, and I'm sure any number of them have, at one time or another, not been at their most alert when driving,...

  5. PACU on call
    Call with a PACU job is quite common. I'd say that 4-6 shifts per month isn't bad- it's most likely 1 day per week plus one weekend. How often you would get called in depends a lot on the facility-...

    Announced inspections are an absolute joke. The week prior to ours, two big tractor trailers show up at the hospital. Everything that has been kept in the hallways magically disappears- packed into...

  12. CNOR?
    Before making such an expensive investment, I would make sure you're going to qualify for renewal if you plan to keep the certification. In order to recertify, you will need 500 hours in the...
