Does that seem like a weird category title to anyone else? Isn't it kind of like opposite meanings? Is it like 'Miscellaneous"? Or am I misreading it?

It's not important, really, but I'm just curious.

"General Specialties" is by definition an oxymoron. Describing something as "general" differentiates it from a "specialty".

A-Yuh, that's what I thought.

I was surfing and when I came across that category heading, it stopped me cold for a minute!

It's basically a forum for those specialties that don't really fit under any of the other forums. From the description:

Discuss ideas and best practices relating to your speciality. If it doesn't fit in any of our Specialty forums post your topic here.

Okie-dokie, like outside-the-box miscellaneous specifics that have no place to call their own, in general. . .

I'm sorry, I can't help it; now I'm just tossing a mishmash-salad of chopped up semantics into a blender and creating a not-too-smoothie. It's kinda what I do, sometimes. I have a Doctorate in Nebulous Ridiculosity.

Would that be a DNR?

Hello poppycat, I loved this!

I had no problem with general nursing as a topic heading. I just thought of it as something so general that it applies to 2 or more specialties, or even to the whole nursing field as a profession.

other would be a more fitting term than general since as per stated above it is an oxycodone. I mean moron.
