  1. Best St. Louis hospitals to work at?

  6. L&D nurse at my wit's end....

    Your post made me smile after reading it, I now know I was not the only one to feel this way. I have been a ER nurse for about a year and a half and it was my first nursing job. I had that feeling of dreading to ever go back for at least the first ye...
  7. "Nurses Are So Mean"

    I completely agree with your post but sometimes I find other departments being nasty to each other and I dont get it. I feel like often when I call report to the floor or unit they are looking for things to knit pick about, I am not saying everytime,...
