  3. RN Disciplined While Waiting On Covid 19 Result

    I see older nurses at my job with yearrrrsss of experience that always say " whose gonna hire an old lady?" Ageism unfortunately is real and is probably very discouraging but is it there so know you will deal with it unfair or not.
  10. Pros and Cons to becoming a Nurse Practioner (NP)
