Is hands on experience or textbook knowledge more important?

I plan on becoming a nurse and I realize both are important, however, the universities close to me are renowned for leaning on one of two sides. Either too much textbook knowledge, or too much hands on experience. Which do you think is better? #nursing #medical #nurse #school #career...

How could someone prepare for losing a patient?

I am a pre-med biomedical science major and I know that I want to pursue surgery, I also know that as a surgeon there will come a time that I am not able to save a patients life and I would like some advice on how to prepare for the moment I love my first patient. #doctor #medicine #healthcare...

How often are doctors reprimanded for covering for uninsured patients?

And what punishments would be given like would I be fired right away? I know money is always an important factor but was wondering if most doctors are punished for breaking rules for patients #doctor #hospital #hospitals #medical #hospital-and-health-care...

Will transferring during undergrad ruin my chances of getting into med school?

Currently I am at a public university and I'm not doing very well, mainly because the class sizes are so big and I feel like I'm bothering the professor if I go to office hours with questions. So, I'm transferring to a private school because I think I'll be a better student. Is this going to be...

Do I have to decide to pursue medical studies right at the start of college?

I'm interested in a lot of careers, medicine being on of them. I want to have time to take classes in college and explore my options but I know that getting into medical school takes a lot of work and is very challenging. If I go into college not knowing what I want to do, will it be too hard...
