    APA format - hard to crack!

    Microsoft word has where you can set it for APA 5th or 6th edition formatting. I use my book more for proper sentence structure for in text citation and for reference structure.

    Clinical Question about digital tools

    For those in clinicals, do you recommend Ipad2, Ipad mini, or just a smart phone (Iphone or Android)? I start clinicals in the fall and want to know which would be better for apps helpful for clinicals. Thanks for any help.

    How will telemetry prepare me for the OR?

    You need to focus on critical thinking, organization and safety awareness. All are vital in the OR. When I started in the OR, I did not think my previous experience had any preparedness for the OR. AsI have learned, my previos experience helps me be ...

    FNP vs Acute care NP vs CRNA

    First, even if a job isn't posted and you want to work say ER express care type jobs, you just contact the company that provides the physician services to the hospital near you. (At least here in Florida, most ER doctors,PA's and NP's are contracted ...
