    "I have a PhD, I know more than you do!"

    Regardless of title and tact, I'm just wondering something. Could he have prescribed NS over soap and water for a reason? Perhaps this LOL had very fragile or dry skin? Possibly a contraindication to using soap and water? I realize I am speculating h...

    Full time or Casual

    Hmm. I'm going to have to look into this further. I'm told the vast majority of our grad nurses are hired casual. I am going into masters so I thought this would be a good fit. But you are right. Not sure how that fits in with preceptorship/orientati...

    Nursing School Vs Med School, no comparison

    I'm terrified

    When I found out I got in, I promptly threw up. I also have two children, one with special needs. I am now done three years with only a year to go- on the top of the Honour roll too, I might add. Experience in life makes it all very doable. Go for it...
