  12. What do you wear?
    Scrub-a-dub-dubs here. There's not really too much of a dress code (no jeans no shorts, no tanks), but I am lazy about fashion and scrubs are easy.

  13. Blood draws and home health

  14. LPN to RN wage in current LPN position
    Yes, but being an RN automatically imbibes more responsibility as per the nature of the licensure. I could work at Starbucks as a barista and would still expect more than a starting wage because of...

  19. can someone review my resume?
    A few things: 1) you have a lot of education and maybe they think you will expect too much pay and don't want to bother offering you a job you may be "overeducated" for. 2) It's good to use...

  25. Hooker in the house?
    I did not acknowledge my suspicions about the "hooker" ("daughter") to the patient, nor did I acknowledge the pornos. I did not feel threatened, or harassed so therefore I don't feel it's necessary...
