  1. Monster, RN

    I grew up on a steady diet of Coke, pasta, and medical dramas. Shows like House, Grey's Anatomy, and Nurse Jackie were a weekly binge treat that fueled fantasies of working in a well-lit hospital, looking adorable in my scrubs, and making lifelong bo...
  2. Honor in Indignity

    Remember that time your entire shift at work was filled with patients praising the saintly work you do, calling on you as the angel that you are, and respecting you as a profession, and maybe even as a person? No? Me neither. I work as an emergency r...

    I had my second interview on 06/26! I haven't heard anything back yet I tried reaching out for an update, but have not received any answers. Keep me posted, and good luck! :)
  4. Death and All His Friends

  12. "Nursing School Dropout"- Starting the Path into Nursing

    Thank you guys all so much!!!
  13. It was then, as my patient rolled away in her wheelchair to parts unknown, I thought 'well, and that's when nursing school ended'. Week 8, and I had lost my patient. I don't mean 'lost', in that whole sad eyes 'oh-my-god-how-did-your-patient-die' los...
