  4. Balancing on the Borderline
    Let me just say that I am 24 years of age, which is relatively young. I first noticed something was wrong with me when I was about 12 or 13 years old. I suffered alone, though, because I had no idea...

    I'm happy your daughter went into remission, and you're right, not all children reach that point. It's unfortunate. Three patients in one shift...I can't imagine how hard that must have been. Though...

  15. Are clinicals flexible?
    At my school, our clinical coordinator explained that the way we are placed was through a computer system. Our addresses are used and that is one way they try and place us. It also depends on where...

  16. White uniform
