  2. Interviewing while on workman's comp?
    It is at a different facility, and I do have a couple of friends that work there who know of the fall. I don't think they would hire me in my current status. But I would rather be honest than not. ...

  9. Renew LPN if RN?
    Is there any point to renewing an LPN license once you have an RN license? The job market is very tight in my area and would like to keep options open. I'm thinking it's time to drop it.

  11. BSN as entry into practice; why we decided against it.
    If we are assuming education is progessive, would a new ADN be more up-to-date than a BSN acquired 10 years ago?

  17. The Stress of LTC
    There is no preparation for stress in LTC---for the nurse! It can be crushing to us. So many ways this happens. How do you handle it? (me, I just cry for a few minutes and move on). We have the...
