  3. Should I give 2 weeks or finish schedule?

    Because I like to know I thought I would let y'all know what the final outcome was. I was offered the internship, which I have accepted. Since it doesn't start till Feb I am going to finish my schedule, this way everyone wins. Thank you all for ya...

  5. Should I give 2 weeks or finish schedule?

  10. When to move?

    there is no real reason to move, the reason would be because I miss florida, I think there is some confusion as to my experience, I have 1 year experience as a tele nurse and 4 months as an ER nurse. I am afraid of coming off as a job hopper if I wa...

  15. ER Book Reviews

    I have been working in the ER for 3 months now and still feel lost at times to what I am doing. I worked for a year on med/surg so I feel like I have some basic knowledge, but for the more advanced things I feel I know nothing. I'm looking at sever...
