  8. Diagnosed with ADHD
    I take Adderall, if they test for amphetamines, that will pop. I pop and show them my RX. Never an issue. If you don't want to pop, stay off for a solid 3 days.

  11. BSN backfire at non-magnet hospitals, higher turnover (This is rich!)

  18. July worst time to be in a hospital according to ABC news

  21. Critique of nursing school

  22. BS or BSN
    If it's a B.S. with major in Nursing you're okay. Purdue University is (or at least was in past) the same way. They don't have a BSN, they have a B.S. with major in nursing and it's fine.
