  12. question about withdrawal protocols!
    I never heard of using clonidine for body aches so I looked it up. Sure enough, it's used for headaches and post-herpetic neuralgia (but I found nothing about aches due to opiate withdrawal). It's...

  17. Leave new RN job before orientation starts
    If it was human resources that let you know you had the job, I think a call is enough. If it was a manager, a nice note would be a good thing. I don't think you need to go in person. That would...

  20. Leave new RN job before orientation starts
    I agree that you don't have to tell the hire-er your reason, except that you must tell them you aren't able to take the job. You have to go where your interests and the best options lead.
