  5. Emergency Nursing - Alpha personalities?
    I feel like I've seen more nursing cannibalism in the ER than I did when I was on the floors. I've also experienced a lot of "favoritism." Certain people given preference by those in power or...

  6. Will I ever keep up the pace???

  12. Vanderbilt's Nurse Residency Program
