  4. Hanging up the scrubs.

    I worked in the ER for a short time. I came out of there a strong RN with a great set of skills but yes, the problems got to me, too and I became kind of calloused and judgemental way too fast. it bothered me enough that I left the ER. I'm glad I did...

  12. Struggling in LTC

    Thanks for the advice. You are right. I'll just go by the book and take my time. I never thought of that-it's not my fault if the pt ratio is too high for me to get meds passed on time. Oh, I would like to add that i got 2 days of training. My first ...
