  8. Shocked by MD care of my patients
    As far as MD vs NP care of diabetes patients, it is shocking how little instruction MD students get on the topic. From what I have seen, NP students get more training in DM care and are better at...

  10. When did this trend start??
    I just went to our ADN students' graduation and it was a combination of formality (they rented the regalia for faculty and we all walked in to Pomp and Circumstance) and whooping it up (airhorns,...

  12. Where to begin this?  How?

  13. For-profit colleges: investigative report
    That is awful. Florida certainly has some terribly lax laws. Many of the fraudulent medical supply companies operate from that state (defrauding Medicare and the elderly, mostly). At the office...

  17. is this expensive for a BSN?

  18. "Bless Your Heart"
    In my experience, "have a blest day" is used sincerely (or sometimes perfunctorily the way white people use "have a nice day"), and "bless your heart" is used more sarcastically. I hear the former...

  19. Taking care of DNR patients. The point?

  22. I failed out of Nursing School... Appealed and WON!!
    What do you mean by this? Multiple choice tests? Medical students take three levels of USMLE, exams that make NCLEX look like nothing at all. The flaw in this logic is that you have to have...
