Any brand new nurses, Drs, PAs, etc here?

I guess it's baptism by fire for new health care workers. Drs. normally start their hospital training in July. Nurses might start in May.

What's it like to be brand new to a health care job now?

A friend of mine's daughter was supposed to graduate from Columbia med school this June. They moved up the grad date to end of April and she'll be deployed immediately, along with her whole class. I believe deployed is the operative word here.

I'd get behind a law to wipe out their student loans.

there are some programs that wipe out your student loans if you do certain jobs like a teacher for 10 years. I think that is a national program don't know if nurses or drs qualify.
