  13. ITT Tech nursing program

    1:1s with difficult patients are, well...difficult. As has been previously stated, even psych nurses are human. Even nuns are human. All of the above get frustrated and annoyed and have buttons that...

  19. How to avoid beating yourself up over every little thing
