  5. I am the worst person ever.
    Shoot, working with peds I ALWAYS let them take the fall. Babies and little boys are the more believable culprits. My husband has shamed me for it, but I say it's fair game.

  19. Go into nursing for the money?
    If you already have a BA why not do a BA to BA transfer nursing program. You'll have A LOT more options with a BSN than an LPN. That would be the route I would chose. I will say nursing has a glut of...
