  2. Anatomy of a Code
    Wow, that's a lot of people in one room. You have a pharmacist who draws the meds? cool. Our patient's rooms are so small (all for neutropenic isolation) that it gets extremely crowded as soon when...

  6. Any good "nurse" shows on tv?  Netflix?
    ER will always have a place in my heart for the most well depicted nurses--- always overworked, fighting with management about staffing, dealing with idiot docs and knowing their stuff. People...

  12. Random TB question

  14. What if you're still unsure what kind of nurse you want to be?
