    Really who needs a bigger pat on the back for doing their god damn job? Who posts more about how much they matter and makes a bigger difference? Nurses or teachers?
    Medical interns. They are just dying for a nurse to call them Dr. And for someone to screw up so they can step in and sore how awesome they are.

    Apparently professional trolls need attention as well.

    Well the first facility canned you because you are pregnant but didn't want to say that. I'm so shocked the second facility said that considering it's against the law.

    OP, I saw your thread about the increase in the minimum wage, also. You suggest that both of these things are just about to happen, and you're all worked up about how are going to negatively going to affect you. Putting aside for the moment how jealous and self-centered you sound in both posts, I think it's highly unlikely either thing is going to happen anytime soon (unfortunately, IMO). Maybe you should just take a deep breath and worry about actual, real-life concerns.

    Nursing has been doing a fine job in the current economic and educational climate of turning out droves of minimally prepared graduates and running down nursing wages and benefits for quite a while now, without needing any assistance from anyone else. We shot ourselves in the foot, collectively, a long time ago.

    Even if we went to some sort of civilized system of public higher education, that wouldn't mean huge numbers of people would get accepted into nursing programs. Plenty of people who are willing to pay can't get into nursing programs now. Nursing isn't like English 101; you can't just open up a few more sections and suddenly accommodate twice as many students.

    Nurses do, from what I've seen ...but I know very few teachers. I have always found dolphins to be very smug, as well. You should have included them in your poll.
