  1. How far is too far?

    I thought this post was going to be about how far you would drive for work. I have watched a few vlogs they are nothing I would have used for info, too many schools have videos online that are so much better for that purpose.

    My school (ADN program at Kent State) sent all of us to a program called "Buszta NCLEX review" prior to taking the NCLEX, it helped us to focus and understand what the question was asking and what we needed to know, I believe we had a 91% pass rate f...

  9. relationship vs work? when to say yes/no...

    I would say (and I am a guy) dump the BF (it might help him mature a little and learn to be supportive of others) and follow your desires. Enjoy your life because in the end it is your life!
  10. Social Relations With Co-Workers

    If you must at least make it a different department, nothing worse than having to work side by side with someone you just broke up with.

    Akron General has just fired all 70 of their LPNs and are replacing them with RNs (20 so far), so you might want to apply there and remember the new fiscal year starts in october so the local hospitals CC and such might increase the hiring rate. Con...

    Bro. is short for Brother which is usually reserved for Monks, I believe, and seeing that the Brother has a BSN after his name that this story is from his past. Personally I do not see where he caused the patient any harm and he even states "I had ...
