  1. ICU pay differential?
    They really don't have to pay extra to lure people into the job. Never mind the fact that I had to list my clergy of choice on a special form to use in case I smacked into the earth from 2000 feet.

  4. Ebola - do you have the right to walk away?

  5. Media a bit too invasive of nurse's personal info following her catching Ebola?
    Because she didn't lie to the authorities. Because she didn't selfishly risk other human being's lives. Because she stepped up and took care of a man that did. For this she is villified and blamed....

  6. Miss Manners for Nurses
    I wouldn't worry too much about it. Us Scots are pretty much aware of how unappealing Haggis is and I think serve it for the shock value. That being said a tiny bite wouldn't be so bad. You might...

  11. BSN Only?  Give me a break!!
    Sage advice but I'd take it further. If this trend continues better to get your Masters or face being in the same situation again in a very short time.
