  4. Nurses can't be punished for violating HIPAA

  12. Nurse with disabilities trying to find a job that fits
    I'm also disabled and trying to get work. Isn't it ironic that the system for helping the sick and injured is so prejudiced against hiring them? If you get SS Disability, after a waiting period you...

    My suggestion would be to download the application of the state(s) you are interested and read them carefully. In Texas, and I suspect in most states, your answers become a public record, no longer...
