  5. What gives??!!
    It sounds to me like it is likely a combination of many factors that is leading to your inability to find a job. The fact that you are unable to teach clinicals is a huge factor: (while I don't live...

  9. Advice: how to get along with everyone and avoid drama, for dummies (like me)?
    Very interesting situation you have here. Your second sentence concerns me the most: this is not a new issue for you. Either that, or you have convinced yourself that this is the way it is. It...

  12. I Want To Be A Nurse, But My Grades Aren't Competitive. Help!

    I know there is a lot more that people are arguing about here, but I'd like to address the issue of employees rights. I see so many posts here about how unfair employers are by making us do things...
