  6. Wiping off IV ports
    Makes sense. I guess where I'm confused is that I fail to see the difference in the cap from the flush and the little white plastics caps. They're both sterile, and they're both covering the threads...

    I guess I should've been more clear- I'm not taking this personally, as I am quite confident in my skills and passion for nursing. The fact that my hospital didn't have an ice cream party for Nurses'...
