    Whooping cough redux; your story?

    Klone is referring to Hepatitis B vaccine (HBV) not HIB or HPV which is not given to infants in the hospital before they are released i.e. HBV.

    need advice/opinions on where to relocate!

    I say go where ever you can get a job! May not be that "exciting" place you are expecting, but it will be a first start in your journey for some where other than where you are now. Good luck

    Was it or was it not?

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought HIPAA covered patient information not anyone else. I hardly see where you could be faulted for a HIPAA violation in referencing the aunt who was not a patient. Meh..all this BS starts to get on my nerves. People just need to get a grip and get over themselves.

    How to get tincture of Benzoin out of clothes

    Awesome tip. Thanks for passing that along.
  6. People can be so ugly. In fact, it seems like I hear it all the time now about the inhumanity that surrounds us. Very depressing and disheartening.

    Nurses letting other nurses chart on their account

    I agree with Pangea. NOT the students lane of fire. In fact, this may even draw the student into being the focus of unintended scrutiny.

    Woman gives birth alone in jail, baby dies

    How terribly sad. I can't imagine.

    Nursing school help! What to do...

    You are probably well advised to volunteer or shadow a nurse for several days before committing yourself to nursing. I'm telling you right now there is no way you are avoiding vomit, poop, sputum, blood, the smell of C-diff. Sorry but that is all part of nursing.

    Civilian Nurse Working on a Military Base, How?

    I'm a DA Civilian nurse working in occupational health. Even though I'm a veteran, I don't qualify for the veteran bonus points and even though I'm a dependent spouse, I don't qualify for spouse preference. What did get me the job was the three years of experience in the field the supervisor was looking for. In addition, DA civilians are not eligible for hire until they meet the one year of experience requirement. This includes LPN's who are going back to school for RN status. Look at USAJOBS for job postings and you can hand carry a resume to the post Civilian Personnel Advisory Center (CPAC) for direct hire options. Hope this is helpful to someone.

    Certifications/learning while waiting

    If math is not your strong suit, I'd do a math refresher course.
