  6. Is clinic nursing a dirty job?

    Do you think I'm an idiot? I'm mystified why you are busting my chops over this. Your experience is obviously different than mine. Can we leave it at that?

  15. IV Drip Rate Help
    I don't think that's it. The question just doesn't make sense to me so I can't answer it. Plus, I'm at work so my time is limited.

  16. Pharm Question

  18. ET tube concern
    Patient size comes into play as well. Although I am petite I have a very long neck ( I need a "tall" c-collar) so 2cm on me wouldn't make much difference. But take a guy who has no neck that 2 cm...

  21. Rant - How should *I* know?

  23. BSN vs MD?
