    Talk to me about your speciality

    I would love to specialize eventually. I love cardiology and palliative care. Many NPs suggest specializing is the key to good pay and work life balance. I would love to hear about your experiences in your specialty. Thanks!

    Pregnant in Nursing School

    I was pregnant my senior year in nursing school. It can be physically tough even if you don't have complications like extreme nausea. No one can tell you how it will affect you, but I would personally consider waiting until you're almost done with sc...

    How to stand my ground

    I work at a facility that is constantly over capacity. There are not nearly enough beds in the hospital to handle the massive need in the community. My floor is often the only one with any beds and we are forced to take patients that we do not have t...
