  6. How often does this REALLY happen?!
    I just put in a late note, unless it's critical, then I call and go back (once in my almost two years as a nurse have I gone back and I probably didn't need to, but CYA, CYA)

  7. Would YOU recommend to a friend/family member, etc..
    To family and friends: Regardless of the economy, if it's a calling, go for it, just know it might be hard to find a job in the area you want to work in. If you want to get rich, be a bank CEO.

  12. Another story painting nurses in positive light.
