    So in that case when accessing you would prime the tubing with NS, but then attach an empty syringe and pull back 10ml?

    So most of the 5ml of heparin sits in the tubing and is removed along w/ the needle when you de-access, but then just a little bit sits in the port?

    Good info, thanks. And not too confusing LOL. And I know legal consultants are a different animal altogether. What sort of experience is most valuable? I have about a year of both ICU and rehab/LTC.

  16. If you are working 2 jobs for 3 months, does that equal 6 months experience?
    I'm a recent graduate and am thinking of applying for a job posting requiring 6 months experience. Does working 2 jobs at once count for double the experience or would an employer just view it as 3?

  22. Do employers really care if you worked full time or PRN at a place?
