  8. New nurse with job that is causing anxiety and depression

  9. ADN or accelerated BSN program?
    With an ADN and/or an ASN, you graduate with a DEGREE, not a diploma. ADN stands for Associate Degree in Nursing. ASN stands for Associate of Science in Nursing. Both are the same...

  12. What is the nurse-patient ratio where you work?
    I just cannot understand why more hospitals don't invest in an admissions RN for each shift. To me that would be such a help for the floor nurses. We have one where I work, but only from 11a to...

  18. I was accused of diverting narcotics and terminated
    I might be wrong about this, but I'm thinking that by hitting "cancel all meds", it made it look as if no vicodin was pulled at all. But you originally pulled out two, then returned one, so the...
