Default So... who is actively licensed or in school?


I notice that one of the allegations on TOL is that a lot of their main influencers (admin-mods) do not hold current nursing licensure. Including people who have voluntarily and thankfully! retired, how many of us have active licensure of some sort in nursing? I'm guessing it's most if not all. I mean, that's sort of the idea, innit?

Since the TOS of THIS site require every member to either hold an active license...be a retired nurse...or currently be a nursing student....you won't find any "wannabes" here. Thankfully!

This requirement has eliminated a whole genre of "I know as much as any medical professional because I read a lot of holistic online blogs about why vaccinations are the work of the devil" threads

I'm licensed.

That immunization thread is still very alive.

One poster insists that Vitamin C prevents you from getting asthma attacks and the flu.

Both, here.

Actively licensed and a student.

FWIW - I am completely disgusted by and am losing respect for the people who keep egging that idiot anti-vaxxer on.

She would have gone away a month ago if people didn't keep validating her existence.
