  5. Is crosswalk/ traffic safety an appropriate Community Health rotation?

    Depending on how much freedom you have with the presentation, input, and involvement, it could be considered preventative, or 'upstream' as they say in my program, nursing. You can talk with the kids...

  13. Do you know of anyone who has been thrown of of nursing school/program? And why?
    I totally agree with you ProfRN4. Lots of people could get through the interview process and be weeded out later, or even worse make it through nursing school and be poor RNs. However, this gentleman...
