    Is Vlad a Nurse??? I love how these people who have absolutely no idea what we do and how we workd give advise on profession. Go to an expert and ask another nurse.

  2. Dear Lecia,
    Thanks for your comment. I did spend 5 years – between 2004 and 2009 with Tufts Medical Center, working closely with the OR nurses. I am not a nurse — my position was Business Manager Perioperative services. I am curious as to what career advice you found to be “absolutely” out of line with your profession? I would be happy to learn from you if you have any specific advice to offer. You can post a comment or email me directly. Thanks.

    Job search in nursing is totally different than looking for a business job. I have 30 years experience in IT with much of it in contracting/consulting. There is no nursing shortage if there really was the jobs would be there instead of filled by those from other countries.
