    Once I found a job (which took 10 months and a 200-mile move), it was rough. I worked in assisted living, passing lots of pills and acting as charge. I had no idea how to be a charge nurse, and I got...

  12. PDN in classroom- who holds liability?
    I assume you are independent, not with an agency. When I worked at a school, we had regular interdisciplinary meetings with the parents, special educator, and care providers. Maybe that would help....

    My local community college charges almost $300 per credit. Not exactly reasonable tuition. It also depends on the job market. I graduated with an ADN in Boston just before the 2008 economic...

    I can kind of see the staff's POV. The androgynous look is trendy where I live, and the patient's medical records and driver's license stated that he was female. It's no reason to insult the patient,...
