  1. Students Faking Illnesses

  2. Students Faking Illnesses

    That’s for all the advice! The teacher actually came and apologized to me yesterday for it. She said the secretary actually confronted her about it cause she saw how the kid was acting in my office and it made her mad as well. Our school policy for v...

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

    I should I guess also mention the type of unit it is. It’s solely L&D. We have a separate mom/baby unit and us L&D nurses also cover the antepartum unit (which isn’t always open). It’s a high risk so we get all the high risk pregnancies from ...
