  3. Paramedics are taking our Nursing job!

  13. cadavuers in ns school????

    Hi I'm Meg (newby) I'm sure every school is different. In my A&P class we had four cadavers that were already dissected (no skin chest, open, etc.) At first it is somewhat unnerving but after a while it really wasn't so bad, you sort of forget ...
