  5. Visiting WA to see if I want to move there.. Advice needed!
    Yes, and we all have to pay down the road when our environment is damaged and our landfills are overflowing with plastic bags and other wasteful, one-time use items. It's not politics to tax...

  11. Snapped at a nurse student last night, she had a bad case of Nursitis
    I'm really sorry that happened to you, Tony. I know some fellow nursing students who have the attitude that they "didn't go to nursing school to wipe butts!" That attitude is very selfish and...

  12. How do I stand out above the crowd?
    IThe best way to get into an ICU after graduation is to do an externship after you complete your med/surg rotation or to get hired into an internship. Taking ACLS and EKG courses are a good start...

  17. "New Nurses's Don't Know Anything."

  18. Gloving up?!?
    That doesn't make much sense though, because unless you are using sterile gloves the gloves are just as dirty as your hands. Potentially dirtier actually, because presumably you would wash your hands...

  23. Rounding up grades
    Sorry, I meant 87%-89% is a B+, which is a 3.3. Percentages and grade points go down from there so 3.0 = B. There are no minuses, e.g. A- or B- Our syllabus simply had "90% or above = A" but did...
