One of the criteria I thought would not be a problem now is a problem: My company will not ...
My very first position as an NP is
in correctional health. I was excited and very nervous about a role where I would
be responsible for so many lives, and furthermore a population of people who
desperately need education, education, EDUCATION!
The correctional facility where I work averages 1,500 people, 155 of them female, of ages from 19 ...
My experience with mentorship began with my student one month ago. The process for getting her
through clearance was daunting, but overall it is worth it. My student has been a nurse for
