Welcome to the NurseBoard. This is an Open Forum for any questions you may have, regarding working as a nurse in the U.S. We will respond to each question, based upon her experience. We will try to provide the source of possible articles and data to the questioner. That way, the person can go to the source material and educate themselves. Some questions that are asked over and over, to look for an answer to your question Use the search Function. If you would like a response from Meladee or Betty, please input your email address. We don't allow the public to view your email (unless you put it in the Name box) If you are a competing agency for nurse recruitment, you may not use this forum to directly recruit nurses. Messages that attempt to directly recruit nurses into another agency, will be deleted.
