The Real Nurse Jackie by Jacqueline Vance, RNC, CDONA/LTC
So, I have been thinking. How do we tee up 2021 with a positive approach, when it hasn’t exactly started off with a bang? Well, maybe it started off with a bang but not a good one. To be honest, here in Florida everyone and their grandmother buys fireworks and they start at dusk and…

This weekend we’re supposed to turn the clocks back an hour? Um, NO!
I bet if that movie “Back to the Future” were real, Dr. Emmett Brown would be saying, “Marty, whatever you do, don’t go to the year 2020!”
