  5. W.H.O. being non-bissed? 15% of their money comes from Bill Gates Foundation. There is a reason, IMO, a good one, why the current administration decided to break away from the W.H.O.

  11. Not so much book recommendations at online Con ED classes. Many websites you can get unlimited CEU for a onetime yearly fee. There is one website in particular I have no affiliation with, but prefer. I'm not sure if I can post here, but feel free to ...

  13. Transitioning to acute care

    One tip that I have is to do as much ICU Con ED as you can absorb and definitely put the classes, hours, etc on your resume to show your interest. Vents, Central Lines, ABG, COVID-19 patients would be some good classes to take. Also, it wouldnt hurt ...

    I have well over a decade in various ICU (staff, local agency, & traveler). 26 bed to 1000 plus bed hospitals. Here is my two cents. #1 Charge Nurses have always had regular patient assignments on top of being charge (theoretically the easiest as...
