  1. Free Professional Organizations for Nurses
    Say a specialty organization charges $200/y for membership. That comes out to less than $4.00/week. That's less than most people pay for their daily coffee intake. If it's important enough to...

  8. What to do: ED physician brought dog to work

  9. Word crimes! (No txtng)

  18. Bullying - What is it?
    ​@Karou: Thank you for a very thoughtful, well-worded post. I fear you advice will go unheeded, but I appreciate what you wrote. For someone who is a relatively new nurse, you have a level of...

  19. Stop the (Deskilling) Merry-Go-Round, I Want to Get OFF!
