    Random tests?

    Hi! I live in Louisiana- I’m not sure if it’s like this in other states but here the BON stated that they will never allow a nurse to smoke on a med marijuana card and practice. Anne, RNC

    New LVN Grad not feeling ready.

    Medication Error

    That's crazy! Like others have said - if someone says they haven't made a med error most likely they aren't being honest. Try not to be too hard on yourself - it didn't harm the patient, right? Try not to beat yourself up about the error. As long...
