  1. I have worked HH and documentation is very important just like anywhere else. Sounds like this nurse needs someone to help her manage her time better. Maybe cut down on her caseload? Sorry to hear her case manager is not up to par either. I would exp...
  2. BSN-DNP yes or no?

    I recommend you chose the least expensive and flexible program especially if you want to start having kids during it. I wouldn’t worry about school pedigree. That doesn’t seem to matter in what I have seen. What I have seen in my more than a decade o...
