  4. Well,nursing school alone is enough to put a person over the edge with all the stress and all. But there is one thing I see in this picture and it is the very reason you SHOULD be a nurse! :) Because we need more smart nurses who know how to take c...

    I started off as a volunteer EMT to "get my feet wet" and absolutely loved it. I have been an LVN since 1992, am working on my ADN now but have worked alot of home health and really like that. Have done pediatrics, geriatrics, hospice and it is great...

  11. Dealing With Aggressive Coworkers

    You know, I am dealing with the exact same thing but I work with a medical assistant who bullies everyone around and actually acts like she is the doctor. It drives me crazy and I try and only act when it is a big deal. Otherwise I just tolerate her.

  15. books or study guides
