Do We Stand up for the Human Rights of our Patients?
June 22, 2015 2:57 PM by Leatitia Coetzee

Stress...Still?

Documentation: My New-Nurse Challenge
October 25, 2011 4:31 PM by Alexandra Cosan
To say that documentation is the only challenge I face as a new grad in nursing would be false, however it is absolutely one I am I struggling with on a daily basis. I suppose I also find it a bit surprising that I would be having difficulty with this Read More...
