  2. The University of Alabama "The Capstone College of Nursing"

  8. Alabama license renewal for new grads
    I just renewed - also a May 2008 Grad. You need 16 hours, BUT 8 are specifically required. The 8 required are ALL online at the ABN website, and are very boring. They take about 4.5 hours to view...

  13. RN job outside of hospitals
    May I suggest returning to college and training to be a Stock Broker or Lawyer. With all due respect, you are burned out with nursing. One should NEVER be in a career for respect or pay, because...
