  6. New Nurse on Paxil
    This is my personal, non-medical opinion - try the medication - give it a few weeks - you can look up side effects online - you may or may not have them - there is only so far positive thinking,...

  8. Should I leave the ICU?
    You can always remain PRN where you are while you move into a different flavor of nursing. A home health agency would scoop you up in a heartbeat w/your experience...while home health isn't without...

  9. Da vita RN pay w/o benefits
    Ask the HR contact..that is the only way to know for sure. Some places will bump the pay, some won't - it really doesn't save a company that much when someone declines benefits.

  14. It's not my job to pray with you.
    You chose a school knowing that religion was a HUGE part of it...prestigious or not...so to complain about the religious aspect when you knew going in it had a Cathedral etc seems a bit absurd. If...

  20. Ambulance transfer service name suggestions?
