  3. I live in an area with A LOT of snow, and as a nurse, do I need an SUV?
    I used to drive a FWD car. When it died, I bought an AWD SUV. Gas milage is still pretty good- about the same as the 10 year old car that it replaced- plus, unlike the car, it can get me out of my...

  7. ICU pay differential?
    No specialty differentials in my area. Yes, there are some specialties that make more than others, but it is due to call requirements where overtime comes into play- with the trade off of more time...

  12. Ebola Scare at My School
    Seriously? What is the reasoning for this? Unless this student spent a lot of time in Ohio with the nurse who flew, this sounds like a major overreaction. Flu symptoms? What kind? Vomiting and...
