  1. In 20 years I've worked in 3 different hospital on med/surg. I've worked in home health. I've been a branch director. I've been a consultant for billing issues nursing related, and I've been a peds assessment intake nurse. I didn't really plan any of...
  2. Drive Through Dialysis: A Study in Resource Utilization

    The story is amazing, of course, but it is great to read something that is well written and punctuated properly, etc.

  9. I still maintain after all these years of being a nurse that to feel makes the best nurses. If you care about kittens you will care about patients. Professionalism is learned or conquered, but caring need to stay alive even when you are a professio...
  10. Tales from the ICF: Ed-EEEEEEEE!

    I worked in a nursing home for 4 years. Your story is great, but the way you told it captured it well. I felt like you do about the friends I made as patients. Isn't it great to have a sense of humor?
  11. In the Presence of an Angel

    Thanks for sharing your story. It is a gift from God to make a difference. You must be warm and compassionate for this patient to sense your friendliness in your voice.
