  8. 4.0 in nursing school?
    I hate to break this to you, but your patients couldn't care less what your GPA was in nursing school. At the end of the day, the 4.0 student and the 3.0 student are both the same exact thing after...

  13. Is Job Hopping the Norm for Nurses?
    While I wouldn't say that job hopping looks good on a resume right now (it definitely does not), it is a generational thing. What I mean is that the days of people staying at one job for 20, 30 or...
