  9. Has anyone ever reported SSI fraud on a patient?

  11. Attrition/Retention rate at your School
    I totally see this. And particularly with some of the younger students, I suppose. They don't really know themselves quite as well yet. And nursing courses are different than general science and...

  12. It's Finally Happened!
    THIS. Aside from litigation, there is probably no way to determine the absolute identity of someone online (and sometimes even with litigation). And if it isn't the person in question... BOY. ...

  17. Only Charting "The Good Vitals"?
