    Argumentative essay

    I just finished my pediatric clinical rotation at what is considered to be one of the best Children's hospital in the nation. It was BORING as all get out. Understandably, many parents do not want students. We were on a transplant floor so most of th...

    Best Dosage Calc Text?

    Khan academy is good! I prefer the route of setting the info up into conversion factors because you can then end up crossing off units. Its pretty fool proof because if you end up with a unit that's not in the answer you know you went wrong somewhere...
