  11. Anyone ever said something completely dumb because they were really nervous?
    This one isn't funny. Family deciding on comfort care for Grandma were taking their own sweet time making a firm decision. Finally they announced to me they wanted to begin comfort only procedures....

  13. DFW area: Am I being low balled?

  17. While You are In Here..I May As Well Try To Go To The Bathroom....
    Part of the problem is that this is a new job for me and I am still learning the culture. We use walkie talkie things to call for help but you have to use first and last name, which I don't know yet....

    Never a good idea to refuse an actual offer for the potential of an offer. You may get lucky but on the whole this was a foolish gamble. There is ALWAYS a probation period at the beginning of any job...

  23. Help! Will i even be able to find a job when i move to Denver?
    Six years is good experience. I would think if you start applying now and express a willingness/desire to earn your BSN you would be reasonably marketable.
