    I can relate! I've been a nurse for the last 13 years and have seriously considered getting out of the profession all together. The problem is all those years of experience going to waste and...

  19. Survey: Do you leave work at your scheduled time on a regular basis?
    I got back from an assignment in February from CA. It was a small, rural hospital, no computers and everything was done on paper. They didn't give verbal reports. It was a "written" report....
