    New hospice nurse: Burned out!!!

    I'm curious about WHY the "all caps" is such a big deal that you would consider not helping an obviously frustrated fellow nurse. That's no way to show how caring you are.

  14. Hi there, I am trying to identify what type of jobs a licensed RN can do from home. I am applying to be a Hedis abstractor for the upcoming year but this will be a temporary job. Any ideas of other opportunities that could be more permanent? TIA!
