  5. LAPD Officers Caught On Video Body Slamming Nurse
    I'm not a professional journalist, but I spent some time on my college newspaper's editorial board, and I respectfully disagree. I'm not sure that replying to your post constitutes being "jacked up."...

  6. LAPD Officers Caught On Video Body Slamming Nurse
    You don't think it's an important detail? Would it have been had the victim had a lengthy violent criminal record? How about if the victim were a minister?

  9. Nurses Calling Patients "Jerks"

  11. Miami Dade College (MDC) Spring 2013 Gen. FT/PT& Accelerated Nursing program
    There is virtually no way you won't be accepted into both tracks with that GPA (I assume that's your science pre-req GPA) and that TEAS-V score. They are both very good. There is not much room...

  17. All of a sudden an ASN is no good anymore
