  1. PLEASE don't use photos as avatars!
    I love my avatar photo. But I guess I should probably change it soon to a newer backlit photo of me snowshoeing. This one is almost 12 years old now and I don't really look like that anymore. :)

  9. Why become a Hospital PCT/PCA/CNA while in NS?
    Best of luck to you. I quit my 2nd nursing job within 2 months (while still on orientation) because I felt it was a terrible fit. I was crying to and from work everyday. My decision to quit was...

  10. Booted out of post MSN program! Advice Please!
