  10. Should my resume include law school?
    You should include it. You will have to list your previous work experience for the application anyway. If I were a recruiter, someone who graduated from law school would pique my interest. It makes...

  16. Do RT's ever help you with bedside nursing?
    I've worked in LTAC facilities (mostly vent patients) so I have a lot of experience with RTs. Usually they do not do anything that a nurse or CNA would do. They do their respiratory thing and "get...
