    Plastic Surgery for Nurses?

    Plastic Surgery for Nurses?
    I’ve often wondered what nurses think of plastic surgery as an option to enhance one’s looks. I think that anything can be fine—in moderation, that is.

    Dating Tips for Nurses
    I’ve never held much validity to the concept of seeking out potential dating prospects based on compatibility of zodiac sign or Chinese calendar symbol.
