“Better staffing is better for everyone no matter what your degree. Taking care of patients is serious business and doing it right can eliminate sentinel events that cost hospitals money.” “All RNs should have a BSN, and I would encourage anyone looking at nursing and potential hospitals or specialty areas to review job boards to see what is required for their chosen path.” “Most of these [antianxiety] apps are free, and many had high user rating scores and positive comments, so hopefully they are working for people.”
