    Probably not. Most of Southern California doesn't unless you're in a very rural area or it's a place with huge retention issues. There are tons of applicants for jobs because of all the schools...

    I have to agree a lot of the "non profit" (I wish I could name names) have the same sorts of issues. Any place that doesn't have oxygen tubing on your floor doesn't value human life. Run!!!! i...

    It should have been 300 mg rapid IVP. Nothing is given over 10 minutes to a pulseless pt. The 150 over 10 minutes is someone with a pulse that's tachycardic ...

    Your post is a bit confusing. A BSN will still have an RN once they pass the NCLEX. A BSN is somewhat useless without becoming licensed. All nursing programs require a certain amount of clinical...

  21. Wrong lens
