    Thank you HiHoCherry-O and BabyLady for your posts. The contract sounds like a great plan. We have people on pain contracts from their PCP yet the ED Providers still give narcotics. BabyLady your...

    If you can't answer my specific question then please don't respond. I'm not interested on a debate on who needs narcotics for chronic pain. I am interested in helping our community address the...

  10. Which states DON'T require VisaScreen or CGFNS?
    I didn't require the CES report to obtain my Vermont license. I had my transcript sent from NZ to Vermont and they oked my qualification. I sat NCLEX and that was it.

    My view of nursing is clouded by my 15 years of experience but I would never recommend anyone become a nurse. If you don't want to continue with your medical studies then become a PA. You cannot...
