    3 Rules of a Healthy Breakup

    Friends Vs. "Nursing Friends"

    Friends Vs. "Nursing Friends"
    When I started the nursing program I had a lot of expectations. I expected to be immersed in the nursing world (did that!). I expected to be studying all the time (yup, I do that too!).

    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.

    Just a Nurse? No Such Thing

    How many times have you said “I’m just a nurse” or “I’m only an RN / LPN.” When I hear someone say this I’m always tempted to say, “As opposed to what?
