  2. What do you wear to work?

  3. OHN Salary.....
    Very hard to say, Canada like the US is a mighty big place. Moncton, NB might be, as a guess $54-68, whereas Vancouver might command 65-75, and extremely remote places like the mines way up North...

  7. You can RETURN your student debt!
    Mine triples in December. Yes, 3x per month what it is now. I wouldn't mind a bit--if I could find a job in my field. But as an Occ Health RN--since manufacturing is largely dead, I am worried.

  10. I passed NCLEX (and here's what I did)
    Hi Nu. I hope you don’t take offense, and I do not mean to be judgmental but I have seen this before. My guess is that English is not your native language. The structure of your native...

  11. I passed NCLEX (and here's what I did)
    I didn't do anything. One of our professors gave a two day review course but I had no money so never took it. I too found the test easy, and fun. I was laughing near the end. (Luckily I came...
