    Granted, I am just a student right now, but the above comments seem extremely outrageous, rude, and unnecessary! If you aren't comfortable doing something, speak up - that's fair. There is a...

  3. 10 year old battles breast cancer
    That's really scary! I had no idea that breast cancer could occur in children either! I suppose it makes sense, in the same way that breast cancer can occur in men, but yikes! The scariest part...

  4. Ignorant  Stupid Patients
    It's all well and good to look at calories but you need to look at fat content too. There are very few salads that have less than 9g of fat in them - that's a huge amount! I mean, the hamburger has...

  5. Ignorant  Stupid Patients
    So, I'm not really sure how I feel about this idea or not... but IF i were for it... how on earth would you track something like that? How do you measure effort? What if, as someone suggested about...

  7. Clarification Please?!
    I think I know what it means, but I can only think of how to put it in an example :P If I take the NCLEX in NH then the license is also good for practice in ME, VT, and MA - thus it is a compact...

    Have you checked out York, ME at all? That's a gorgeous hospital, but I'm not really sure about their hiring status at all... There is also Wentworth-Douglass... Frisbee... (both of those are NH)......

  10. Honesty  during the interview
    That's a really interesting dilemma. I think if it were me I'd ditch the honest answer and go with what you know they want to hear (i.e. I want to help people, care for them in their time of need...

  12. 40,0000 for RN program
    I failed to mention that I do get a scholarship for keeping my GPA at least a 3.3. I get 15000 a year for that, so it takes 60000 off of my over-all total (and brings my yearly down to about 25000). ...

  15. Can I still get the job?
    I think you still have a chance! If it were me I think I'd apologize and briefly explain the nature of the emergency, so they have a way to understand why you had to reschedule. And even tell them...
