  1. The private college cash grab
    I don't follow many student threads, so I have a very skewed vision of what's gone on. So I apologize for (inadvertently) misrepresenting what has been said over the years. And yes, I agree that you...

  2. The private college cash grab
    I couldn't begin to evaluate the merits of the OPs particular case, so PPs could very well be right that he totally allowed himself to be hoodwinked. We have no info on his background education,...

  3. The private college cash grab
    Actually, I don't think they think about the students at all except as data on a loan application. Scoffing up as much of that loan money as they can is their entire business plan. Ask Goldman Sachs...

  5. FLAME ON!
    Case in point: after finding the mockery of nursing thread from 2012, the OP of which mentioned failing NCLEX 5 times, I hit the "what's new" button. One of the top new threads was about failing...

  6. Anti-vax nurses? Are you serious?
    I have to confess that I've not read this thread all that closely, but if this is the first comparison to Hitler, then congrats! It took 85 pages for her to get around to it.

  7. FLAME ON!
    Posters who decide to put some old biddy firmly in her place. There's a new kid in town, doncha know! Entertaining at first but get boring very quickly. After that, just a waste of screen space.

  8. Coworker tried converting me on my break
    The course of this thread is an illustration of what happens when one answers rude behavior with snark and outrage. If this is what you want in your nurses' stations (and what happens in the...

  10. Coworker tried converting me on my break
    I happen to agree ... but amusing yourself at someone elses' expense is not productive of anything but hard feelings. I think that kind of self-indulgence is just as inappropriate in a workplace as...

  11. Coworker tried converting me on my break
    I disagree. First, it's necronomicon - was that a typo? Second, I see no benefit in promoting snark in the workplace. It's a good response on AN or in the street or coffee shop, but upsetting a...

  14. Coworker tried converting me on my break
    I think it's a mistake to get all hot and bothered at being approached by an evangelical christian. It is a central expression of their faith to spread the good news and, as far as I can see, is a...
