  8. What are some nursing jobs that involve a lot of travel?
    I like the idea of being on the move. I love flying and don't mind all the hassle of going through airport security, checking in, etc. It seems like a consultant job would fit the bill, but can...

  14. How does heparinizing ports work?
    So most of the 5ml of heparin sits in the tubing and is removed along w/ the needle when you de-access, but then just a little bit sits in the port?

  25. If you are working 2 jobs for 3 months, does that equal 6 months experience?
