  2. "Smart" students make bad nurses?

    I am a new graduate LPN and it has been my experience that some nurses eat their young and some nurture their young. I have been in the field approximately 3 months and I work in long-term care. My full-time job stinks because they eat their young. T...
  12. Job Offer

    One of the leading hospitals in GA if not the leading hospital had the nerve to offer my pennies to start in one of their facilities. I was so surprised, I didn't know what to say.
  13. Liability Insurance

    Soooo does anyone have a nurse insurance (liability) policy? If so, with whom? How much is the coverage? How much coverage do you have? and Was there a waiting period before it became active?
