hi there and welcome to the virginia nurses forum!
just a friendly reminder that no potentially libelous information about specific schools, instructors, or health care facilities should be posted in these forums. while it's important to be able to network, i ask everyone to also be mindful of the following:
(1) it's a small world - when we narrow it down to a state and throw in a dash of personal info, there's actually a pretty good chance someone may recognize you if you're not careful. your privacy is paramount to us.
(2) while allnurses.com
is a wonderful place to vent (without excess personally identifiable details) it is not the place to express why ("x" specific person, place or program) is terrible. gripe away, (and since we've all had our stints in horrid jobs, facilities, schools or classes, we're not questioning that you are speaking the truth) but since we can't permit allegations to be made about named entities, your care in not naming them is very much appreciated.
(3) please do not give out personal information about others. do not name names where anyone could identify the person in any facility including your nursing programs.
posts of thread that contain people's names will be edited or removed.
thanks for helping your volunteer staff keep off the tums.
