Another bright and breezy presentation. As a nurse educated in the 80s and returning to metropolitan ward work and pace after a 20 year break, it's been a huge challenge. I love learning from the new grads and golden oldies, most have much to share . Maintain your curiosity, we learn new things everyday. A great theory component to your CPD.
