  4. Cone Health 2017 New Grad RN Residency 2017

    Cone is $28 now and Duke is $27. Not sure what UNC is, but I think slightly higher than Duke.
  5. Hello! I'm about to start my preceptorship on L&D, and I really want to snag a job on this unit. I think I am generally friendly, helpful, and ask a lot of questions. I realize I don't have total control over what happens, but I want to do my ...

  13. New L&D Nurse, Did I make a mistake?

    I'm sorry you're going through this. I recently listened to a podcast episode about negative unit culture that might be really helpful to you (it's also on spotify and probably apple podcasts)

    This is great advice! Create opportunities for patient education.
  15. I am a nursing student so I don't have advice to give, but I just wanted to say that I completely understand why you would have been playing up your bartending work. The advice to leave out your personal life (wise though it probably is) makes me sa...
