    Fired for refusing??

    I would prefer a more positive way of dealing with those who refuse to be vaccinated. A reading list of reasons for being vaccinated, directed at most educational levels, might deal with those with "I don't believe in it" or "you get the flu by bein...

    Case Study: Solve A Neurologic Mystery

    Again, I am appaled by the focus of this thread! While it was of greater interest of participants in this discussion, it seems that ICU Nurses are, as usual, trying to "one up" the doctors. They have the responsibility of diagnosing patients, and it ...

    What NOT to say during an interview

    I learned a response to outrageous comments while in a "growth" workshop called "Lifespring". I use it wherever and whenever situations such as that teacherSue described, happen. It is, "Thank you for caring enough to share".Unless teacherSue is morb...
